Tabac, German cult shaving brand & fragrance
Last week I was invited to experience a Tabac shave at Jo & Co, 22 Peter Street, Soho in London, where I also took the opportunity for a quick hair trim as well.
Looking sharp and feeling relaxed. Yes I certainly would be. London was experiencing a heatwave and I had started my day by having a meeting with a television producer at The Four Seasons in Mayfair, after which I hopped on the bus up Green Park and then jumped off at the bottom of Shaftsbury avenue and then a short hop up to Peter Street which is situated at the bottom of the famous Berwick Street in Soho. And what a beautiful morning to be in Soho a place where I started my media career working for a commercials production company and a place that I do not visit so much these days but definitely brings back fond memories.
Jo & Co is very Soho and very media, minimalist, bright open and studio like it is a perfect fit for Tabac.
This brand of fragrance that was created by Maurer & Wirtz in 1959. It is said to have a floral fragrance and contains a blend of Bergamot, Neroli and Lavender.
“TABAC ORIGINAL is one of the most successful fragrances in Germany since its launch in 1959
Certainly the distinctive aroma and vintage white bottle with distinctive type face is something I am sure many of you will have seen before.
Hayley looked after me, with my shave and hair. Having been taught by her father she certainly knows her stuff. Using Tabac products, hot and cold towels I would be leaving refreshed and beautifully close shaved. I find having a proper shave a perfect time to gather my thoughts, unwind and just let life pass me by for a few moments.
At Gentlemans Butler we regularly advise to combination of shave and haircut and depending on the establishment also manicure and pedicure.
Have a look at www.tabac-original.com and certainly recommend the Shaving Soap Bowl with the Tabac Original Eau de Cologne.
