Arlington Shaving Soap in Wooden Bowl by D.R. Harris
D. R. Harris Arlington Scented Shaving Soap is a solid soap of the finest quality and has been triple-milled for profuseness of lather. This softens the beard allowing for easier shaving. Hand-turned wooden bowls crafted exclusively for D. R. Harris are of a sensible size, attractive and durable. Arlington is a subtle blend of citrus and fern. Understated but decidedly masculine.
Available in either sustaiably-sourced mahogany-effect sheesham wood or beech. The lids for these bowls rest on the base thereby making them unsuitable for travel.
100 g soap.
Also available as a shaving cream.
Refill Soaps are also available.
The story of D.R. Harris begins just before 1790 at No. 11 St. James's Street where Harris's Apothecary set up shop. Over the next fifty years the family established a reputation selling Lavender Water, Classic Cologne and English Flower perfumes to this fashionable quarter of London.
One of the proprietors, Henry Harris, was a surgeon, while Daniel Rotely (D. R.) was an early Pharmaceutical Chemist.
For over two centuries this family business in the centre of men's Clubland has served the gentry and the court of St. James's and in 1938 was awarded the warrant as chemists to her Majesty The Queen, later the Queen Mother which was held until her death in 2002. In 2002 they were also appointed as Chemists to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, an honor that was added to in 2012 when they received the Royal Warrant for Her Majesty the Queen.
Today D.R. Harris is still located in their traditional Chemists' shop at 29 St. James's Street.
