Enough of the plaudits, what are the products like? Well, if your experience of shaving up to now has been limited to
quick-lather aerosol foams by a certain brand you know all too well, then sampling a D R Harris shaving soap will
make you wonder what you have been doing all these years. Take the sandalwood soap for example, which has been
triple-milled to increase richness and the quality of lather, and has been fragranced with bergamot, neroli and
ylang ylang. Or the Windsor traditional shaving soap which features notes of grapefruit, black pepper and vetiver.
These soaps smell and feel infinitely better on your skin than the modern day aerosol foams, especially when applied
with a traditional badger hair brush. If you like to retain some facial furniture after every shave, then you'll
most certainly be in the market for D R Harris's beard oil and brush together with the Windsor moustache wax, which
will ensure your facial hair stays in perfect condition.
With Christmas just around the corner, D R Harris is also the perfect brand to gift to loved ones and offers some
incredible grooming kits for the male members of your family. The Arlington set is one such bundle of joy: it holds
everything you need to ensure that your morning is a luxurious experience. The bundle includes a 100ml aftershave, a
75ml shaving cream tube, deodorant, a 150g soap, 30ml cologne, 250ml shower gel, lip balm, 75ml toothpaste and a
toothbrush, all from the brand’s Arlington range, which is fragranced with a classic blend of citrus and fern. The
products are housed in a sumptuously crafted leather washbag with a zip closure and a leather pull tab.
Green is good
For a brand that is nearly 230 years old, DR Harris has a very modern approach to sustainable and environmental
business policy. Recently, they have been driven to become as carbon neutral as possible, leading to significant
improvements in packaging. They no longer use cellophane to seal packets and nearly all of the materials used are
recyclable. Glass bottles can be re-used and wooden bowls can be re-filled. They also source as many products as
possible from the UK, cutting down on delivery miles and supporting British business. Since June 2018 DR Harris has
been working with Eden Reforestation Projects and through them now plant a tree for every purchase made online and
in-store. For every trade order 5 trees are planted. In the shops and warehouse, all waste is recycled using
specialist companies. DR Harris have also partnered with DPD who have managed to make their delivery process
completely carbon neutral, and for customers within a 1-mile radius of St. James’s Street, London, your orders will
be delivered by pedal power.
