Hey guys, just read this for the first time. I discovered your store on my last deployment when I was becoming obsessed with the idea of finding the perfect scent. After the first time I smelled the Sandalwood Smoke, I was hooked.
I got a little concerned that you guys were not going to be around, but I’m glad you found what you needed to keep this site up. You have a customer for life.

Make a wish and sometimes it comes true. Days after my first post, I received an email noting that The Holy Black aftershaves were not only in stock, but there was a special deal being offered. I ordered immediately. Inside of 48 hours, I had a couple of bottles (and soap samples) in my hands. That’s quick!!! I’d forgotten how much I love the stuff Stefan created. It’s even better smelling than I remembered, and there seems to be far less tackiness than my first try. (Bad memory? Formula change? Drier weather & skin?) Whatever. I’m going back for more before the stuff sells out.

I tried your stuff when the samplers from a much broader range of products were still available. I love the same aesthetics you do, and the scents you created were fantastic! The look and feel of the packaging was/is outstanding, except for the fact that the labels kept peeling off, which severely cheapens the look. Also on the down side, the aftershaves were effective but too thick, with a viscosity something like motor oil. I presume that’s the castor oil. I loved the scents, especially gunpowder variety, but really disliked the prolonged tackiness on my face. And the shave cream was a joy to open, again due to the scent, but it’s lathering was below average. Performance at the point of blade meets skin is of utmost importance, so I decided not to buy your shaving cream again. All in all, I’d jump at the chance to restock your aftershaves, and if I read reviews saying your shaving cream had improved, performance-wise, I’d be all over that, too. But the most likely barrier to another purchase is staying on top of your product availability. There’s almost nothing on the shelf compared to what was there when I first stumbled upon your site. May I suggest you create a mailing list? I volunteer my email address (see above) to help in that effort. I’m not likely to check your site again and again with my fingers crossed. But if I was notified that you’ve restocked the shelves, I’d open my wallet. Please don’t take this note as a negative. I’m just trying to nudge a good thing in an even better direction. Thanks for making time to read this.
