RazoRock American Barber brings you exceptional shaving performance with a scent reminiscent of the a vintage American Barbershop. 

This Rive Gauche inspired shaving soap is paired it with RazoRock's favorite lanolin soap base (to keep the scent unaltered).

Inspiredby the now discontinued YSL Rive Gauche per homme. RazoRock tried for over two years to find a fragrance that's a true version of Rive. Two fragrances houses sent samples that were really good and very close, but we wanted something better and more authentic. We finally bit the bullet and commissioned the fragrance from a luxury French house and they nailed it.

- Size 150ml

Artisan Made in Italy

Tips: RazoRock Italian shaving soaps are formulated to be used with a traditional shaving brush. To use this shaving soap, simply swirl a wet shaving brush on top of the soap for 30-40 seconds, then you can either complete the lather right on your face or in a lathering bowl, add droplets of water to the lather until you reach your desired consistency. Less water will make for a thicker and pastier lather, more water will make a slicker and thinner lather. Make sure to let the soap fully dry before covering it again with the lid. If you are using the soap daily, there is no need to cover it.

Brand: RazoRock

YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme... Hmm...

I bought a puck of Fine Accoutrements Classic American Blend soap few years go, and really loved its scent (inspired by YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme) and performance. When I saw this RazoRock American Barber soap appeared on the On Sale list, I thought I would get myself another YSL RGPH scented soap, since there was only a thin piece of Fine puck left enough for just over 10 shaves.

Well, the two soaps actually smelled fairly different to my untrained nose. I must say that I liked the Fine's take of YSL RGPH re-creation more. RazoRock's version smelled really nice as well, just a little heavy on the powdery note, but still a very well done barbershop scent. Since I have not personally ever sniffed the real YSL RGPH, I could not judge on which was actually the more "accurate" re-creation.

This tub that I received was not of the latest lanolin formula as described on the webpage here, but of the previous tallow base, but it did not matter, since all RazoRock soaps delivered outstanding results, no matter which soap bases they came in. While the final performances were almost indistinguishable based on my personal experience, I did somehow notice that the tallow based RazoRock soaps lathered a tad faster than the latest lanolin super formula soaps.
