  • Product Description

    Made with Benzoin, Frankincense, Clove, and Nutmeg essential oils. This splash smells like an older gentleman’s pantaloons at the end of a hot July day in Philadelphia, drafting important documents with no air conditioner. It’s actually a very unique scent that reminded a few of our testers of a root beer float. An instant favorite.

    NOTE: The description is tongue-in-cheek.  It smells like a wonderful blend of Frankincense, Benzoin, Nutmeg, and Clove.  It doesn't actually smell like sweaty old man pants. As of 3 March 2015, we have been averaging about 2-3 inquiries per week as to why we would make a soap that smells like an older gentleman's trousers......

    **PLEASE NOTE: This product now comes in a 200ml Amber PLASTIC bottle with a flip-top cap.

    1. Nice Winter smell

      I enjoy the aroma of this product, but it's pretty dominated by cloves to my nose (and those of others who've smelled it on me). Not bad, but I don't know where people are getting Rootbeer Float. on 5th Jan 2017

    2. A really pleasant surprise

      I first ordered a sample of the Ben Franklin shave soap purely out of curiosity, given the rather bizarre product description. Much to my surprise, I loved it and then bought the witch hazel and aloe. I won't try to describe it other than to say that it is very unique, a bit citrusy and as others have said, truly addictive. The moisturizing properties of the witch hazel and aloe are really nice but I am going to order the aftershave version next time... I just want more of this crazy scent! on 24th May 2016

    3. Love this product.

      Of all the products I've purchased from Stirling to date, this witch hazel and their shaving brush rank at the top. I love the smell of this product first and foremost. I rub this all over my face and neck after I shave. The smell lasts for hours unless I begin to sweat from working. It tightens your skin in a very enjoyable way. Can't go wrong with this product. on 28th Mar 2016

    4. Feels great! Smells great!

      Be generous with this when you're throwing it on your face. I got one of the 250ml bottles, not sure where they went, but I can't go a day where I shave and don't put this on. It smells great and it's pretty much my closeout to the shave ritual, with only my aftershave following it. I love how it smells, as it reminds me of being a kid at school. So the nostalgia factor definitely adds to it for me.

      Even though there are only 100ml bottles now, I'll still be picking these up once I run out.

    6. Very nice

      the clove and frankincense is really nice, not over powering by any means and although the combination of smells is kind of ancient and classic it does not remind me of any ones bloomers or hot sweaty days. it does smell like something i would wear with a brooks brothers suit but perhaps not an armoni. it is very rolls royce and not so much lamberguini. All that not really being said, i can tell you for sure that it leaves my face feeling great with very little if any burn. it is soothing and calming after a shave and not punishing, i like that. on 22nd Nov 2015

    7. Starts out Weird

      it goes on with cloves all over and it is a bit over powering for me but in time it leaves a very pleasant smell that comes up and catches me off guard during the day. It is rather excellent after it melts into its stride for the day. I like it. but mostly i like the way my face feels after i use it, it is exceptionally smooth, tight and makes you want to feel your face often. on 23rd Oct 2015

    8. Exotic, bewitching, and great on my face.

      I'll start off saying how much I love Stirling's aloe and witch hazel as it has become part of every shave, every day. It firms and soothes with just the tiniest sting to let you know it's working. I love the stuff and don't want to imagine my post-shave without it. That being said, this scent, though a heady concoction of spice, citrus rind and (in the best possible way) gasoline is a wonderful addition to my growing collection of splashes. I don't personally get "rootbeer float" but what I do smell reminds me of a fortunetellers den tucked into a back alley on a hot day just after a rain storm. It's a fantastic scent but for me, not one I can do every day. I love it on the weekend, but for my daily shave prefer something a bit lighter/cleaner smelling. on 14th Sep 2015

    9. Great smell

      Great smelling stuff. Reminds me of a root beer float with a lot of exotic spices/cloves. Love the scent. on 3rd Jun 2015

    10. Excellent Daily Splash!

      Okay... Get over the zany description. It ain't no old mans pantaloons! I'm talking ROOTBEER CREAM SHAKE! Its great stuff! The nutmeg spices it up then the Benzoin takes the deep sweet vanilla, then its all closed off via a warm woodsy Frankincense. All day staying power! As the Stirling splash formulas work... this one is awesome! It just keeps the skin ULTRA moisturized all day long! Killer skin softening that I don't even get with the Stirling alcohol based aftershaves! Spicy-Sweet-Warm a great scent! By the way... No STING! No alcohol = no burn. Some days... no burn is good. on 27th May 2015

    11. Phantastic Witch Hazel for My Phavorite Philadelphian

      I can see why this reminds people of a root beer float. The scent has a certain "creaminess" to it, but is also a bit "smoky," like A1. It's a masculine, old-fashioned scent. It does not linger too long and pairs well with any balm. Also, it does not burn my freshly-shaved skin when applied. Thanks, Stirling: you know how to hook a proud Philadelphian. I feel the "Brotherly Love." on 24th May 2015

    12. Smells bad until it's rubbed in.

      I was really hoping to only smell the "root beer float" scent that the testers smelled but straight from the bottle it smells like something my grandpa would have used. I was completely turned off by it but I figured I would try it out since I bought it. It goes on easy and soothes the skin. After the initial strong scent it does leave a pretty good smelling scent that lasts pretty much all day. on 16th Jan 2015
