What's New


Following up on the enormous success of Asian Plum, we created a scent which may very well surpass the love affair of the Plum. Asian Pear has been several months in the making and offers a superb blend of notes, familiar to its cousin, yet completely different. A bit less floral and sweet, but shares some of the same magnificent notes. The Pear is the standout, with some dried fruit notes, tonka, tobacco, sandalwood, with a hint of coffee & florals.

Notes: Bergamot, pear, dried fruits, tobacco, tonka bean, coffee, jasmine, sandalwood & cedar wood.

Face Spackle - Barbershop

Face Spackle was born because I wanted to buck the trend of increasing soap prices and offer an elite type soap at a VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE.  In fact, I wanted to create the best shave cream in the industry.,  This has been a challenging task, because creams historically lack the same type of slickness and post shave experience as harder soaps. Creams generally speaking dissipate and are lighter with larger bubbles (not dense).  Our new Face Spackle provides incredible slickness, unmatched post shave, superb lather and an awesome Barbershop scent. RETAIL $12.95 (Members Pay $10.37)


Black is unlike any scent I have created. Black is warm, dark and very inviting.  Black is a weekend in NYC, a night in Soho, jazz at the Blue Note, smoke filled room, sweet & decadent.  This will most certainly become a favorite among members.

Notes: Black Pepper, Tobacco, Oud, Amber, Dark Chocolate, Rum

How to build a lather

It all begins with a great shaving soap. A&E and Club branded soaps are among the best in the industry and will work with any type of brush or water.  If you are a beginner, we recommend a good synthetic, as they're virtually maintenance free and super easy to build a superb lather. This is personal preference.

1. Fill your bowl (if bowl lathering) with hot water and warm your bowl & brush together.

2. Place brush into bowl  and soak for 5 minutes or so. Most people do this while showering and most effective using a natural hair brush.

4.  Remove brush  and squeeze bristles lightly to get rid of excess water. You can also give it a few light shakes as well.  

5. Start load your brush by swirling brush in soap jar using circular motion. We recommend light to medium pressure. Add some plunger motions as well. This will help in significantly building up your lather.  Continue swirling until a paste-like consistency begins to form on the top of the soap and on the brush. 
Bubbles (like a hand soap or bubble bath) are the result of too much water. 
Continue to swirl until it's pasty and almost looks like Elmer's glue. I personally love this consistency. 

6. You can now build your lather on face or use a soap bowl. Either one will work just fine. 

7. Add water as needed- a few drops at a time. I will normally wet my hand slightly from faucet and let a few drops drip from hand onto brush. Most of the time a few drops is all that's needed to make a difference. Our soap in particular can handle a large range of water and is quite thirsty, so don't be shy if you'd like to experiment by adding more water.   The consistency of the lather should be Greek yogurt-like, with a nice dense lather. The lather should feel slick, cushiony and protective.

Enjoy your shave!
