Knize shaving soap.

Thanks for all the great comments, emails, and feedback around my shaving ‘megapost’ i made previously.   The Proraso italian shaving cream i’ve been using is quite good, however being as Knize make some of the world’s finest clothing, accessories, and fragrances—I was obliged to try out their shaving soap in a beautiful Knize-etched wooden shaving bowl.

The soap is great, lathers up quite nicely after about 40-50 spins of my brush, and goes on with plenty of smoothness.  The smell, as with all Knize items, is simply fantastic.  It’s pretty difficult to find Knize accessories in the US, however this soap along with other Knize items are currently available at Colonial Drug in Cambridge, MA.  This, by the way, is a great shop with tons of other great Knize items in stock.  The shave soap and the bowl are $45 and in stock.

There will be a day when I make it to the only standing Knize shop in Vienna; but for now, I will take what i can get and scavenge around for these little pieces of gentlemen glory.

Exclusive: KNIZE TEN coming to the USA

knize_ten

This is a lifestyle blog, not simply about cars. But about all things for all men.  This isn’t a crap site like Basenotes where boring one-dimensional donkeys cry and whine about their gutless opinions of rubbish fragrances. IEDEI focuses on cars, however has a firm grip on quality items for all petrolheads.  One of the things i became quite interested in last year or two was fragrances—especially leather fragrances.  The finest leather fragrance i have ever tried  (and i’ve tried MANY) is surely the glorious KNIZE TEN.  Currently, this is one of THE harder fragrances to find—as there was no official US distributor…but all of this has changed!

Over the past year or so, i’ve been in consistent communication with the good folks over at the Austrian offices of Knize and also at the german perfume office.  This morning, they informed me that a US distributor for 5 lines of KNIZE products has been secured! Yes, from Maine—a company named Waldron Group has been confirmed as the exclusive distributor of Knize products here in the USA. 

For those of you who haven’t tried KNIZE TEN, it is an extremely artistic, classic, controversial, and unique fragrance—equal parts leather, bitter tar, citrus, and hints of florals.  But this is truly THE quintessential MAN SCENT.  It is a must try, and a must own.  I will fill you in on more details when they happen…..and a launch date is expected in the Summer of 09.  Finally, the good petrolheads of this country will stop smelling like Armani, Creed, Gucci, and all that other trendy rubbish!
