By 1966 Seaforth! enjoyed nearly 3 decades of success with their Heather and Spiced scents.  They hadn't strayed far from these fragrances, instead opting to add ancillary products like deodorant and brushless cream to their lineup. As the earliest Seaforth users neared retirement age a younger generation became a key demographic.  The tastes of the new consumers were less rigid and traditional than their fathers.  The market was ready for a departure from the heady scents of the 40s and 50s.   In 1966 Seaforth launched Sea Spice Lime to adapt to the changing times.  The scent was lighter and more vibrant...

TLDR: We have a very small run of Seaforth! Heather alcohol splash and EDT (packaged in coozies because disposable packaging is wasteful), and a lighter scent for summer is in the works Alcohol Splash & EDT We’ve been reluctant to work with alcohol for a few reasons - Covid made it hard to get, it’s drying, and it’s a pain to ship. With the rush on hand sanitizer behind us alcohol is a little easier to get, so we’ve made a very limited run of alcohol-based splash and EDT.

TLDR:  I'm excited to launch the first longer-run soap Spearhead Shaving Company: Oakmoss & Sandalwood.  This is phase 2 of a 3-phase soapmaking project (details below).  Thanks for all of your support with this project so far! When I started Spearhead Shaving Company a year ago I set a goal for myself - to accomplish something I'm proud of each quarter.  It wasn't exactly a "moonshot" and my goal was intentionally vague.  But it was my effort to hold myself accountable and accomplish something creative outside of my daily job. I already knew my first quarterly objective.  I was working on developing...
