From Murphy and Mcneil


Tobacco was not introduced into Europe until 1548, and some of the first seeds were planted in County Cork, Ireland.  Although it quickly grew in popularity, King James the First (1566-1625) greatly suppressed cultivation by raising taxes/duties.  He claimed this was due to the “pernicious stink and perversion of the soil” it represented and was causing.

Tobac Fanaile is dedicated to those who look forward to donning some “pernicious stink” and being noticed.

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 got this a couple of months ago but hadn’t used it yet. I used it all this week and it is fabulous. This is a top tier soap. The scent is incredible and the performance is without peer. I have to get the AS and soon. BTW, Carmen’s service is always great.

    This is my first time trying M&M’s Aon base (I’ve tried their softer beef tallow base) and I can easily conclude that is an elite soap. Performance-wise, it is essentially flawless. I was particularly impressed by the slickness, residual slickness and post shave feel. As for the scent, it is quite pleasant and surprisingly different from Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille, which it is inspired from. They advertise the scent as medium strength, which is accurate and just the right amount of strength for this kind of scent.

    Very clean and pleasant scent. I wish my sheets smelled like this coming out of the dryer, if that makes any sense. Top notch performance.
