From Murphy and Mcneil

Description:

Ogham (‘oh-am’) represents the earliest form of writing in Ireland.  Made up of a series of lines or “strokes” creating an alphabet, they can be found on ancient wood and primitive written texts.  Most famously however, Ogham can be found throughout Ireland carved into monolithic stones.  These stones, often standing sentry in commemoration of a loved one or as a territorial marker, are a fascinating piece of ancient history.  Many like to believe that Ogham is connected to Druidic practice, and that it is a “language of the trees” or perhaps even part of runic divination.  While there is little proof that Ogham is connected to these mystic arts, it can be difficult to argue that these stones have a certain magic about them.

The fragrance of our Ogham Stone collection is meant to evoke the aura of wet stone and earth on the rainy countryside.  While familiar, this is a mysterious scent that also seeks to find the magic of Ogham that we want to believe.

This Shaving Soap by Murphy and McNeil is composed of a mix of high quality oils and ingredients that create a dense, creamy lather for an excellent shave.

    I love this scent. There is gentle incense quality to it that I really enjoy. Great soap base too. Reminds me of the Icarus base by DG but easier to lather.

    I really like complex scents and for me this soap is one of the best attempts at an original frankincense and myrrh scent. I think this brand does not get enough love and I really think their fall/winter offerings were the best in wet shaving.
