- Black Ship
This is my third or 4th purchase from Black Ship!! Exceptional products and service every time!
Found it to be one of the stronger scents in your line. To me, it was sort of 'medicinal and 'off-putting'. My least favorite, wouldn't buy again, but that's just my opinion...others may like it.
I've tried most of the scents from BBW (and many from other artisan producers), this is definitely my favorite so far. Fragrance: Green herbaceous notes and a touch of lime combine with a fresh and salty ocean-esque mix to make a solid impression. Dries down to include light, floral and faintly earthy notes. A layered and complex experience that is truly unique, like standing on a cliff by the sea amidst wild growth and blooms. Stays on my skin for hours without being overpowering. I will be buying the soap and balm in the future. Performance: I have sensitive skin prone to irritation; the aloe, vitamin E, witch hazel and menthol soothe and moisturize extremely well. Not all artisans add menthol, it really elevates the soothing aspect and adds another layer of freshness to the entire experience without impacting the fragrance. Performance has been the same for all BBW splashes I have tried without exception. Customer Service: Exceptional. Kelly is quick to respond to any questions or comments I have had. Shipping is always quick and includes tracking as well as sample vials of aftershaves. One time the postal service notified Kelly that an order of mine had been severely damaged. Kelly replaced the order promptly, notified me of the delay and offered to send me a tub of shaving soap free of charge for the inconvenience. When I politely refused the soap (wasn't Kelly's fault after all) he threw in a free full sized bottle of balm anyway and a couple extra sample vials. Can't beat that level of dedication to customer service! That plus the new fragrances every 2 months or so will keep me coming back for a very long time. Thanks for everything Kelly!
Great aftershave as usual. Green ocean scent. Think stranded on an island. A little jungle and a little salty sea.
