The Spirit of Shaving

The Blind Barber is an old-fashioned men's barbershop and cocktail lounge born in New York City.  Combining grooming and social life in one place, we are a unique platform, fostering a global community of style, ideas and culture.

Housed in "Barbicide" jars, the iconic, stainless steel and molded glass jars used by barbers everywhere, this midnight blue soy wax candle hand-poured in New York City features key notes of honey, smoke, leather and lavender; each scent chosen because of its special connection to the barbershop.

  • Honey – Derived from the sweet smell of whiskey you get as the glass reaches your mouth.
  • Smoke – A slight hint of smoke is reminiscent of the lingering smell of smoke from jackets hung on the coat rack.
  • Leather - The element of leather is a reminder of the way barbers used to sharpen their razor right before they shaved a man's beard. 
  • Lavender – A signature finishing touch to all of the Blind Barber shaves.  The essential oil is used to instill a sense of calm after a shave. 

The notes are eclectic yet fit perfectly together; just like the candle's namesake, Tompkins Square Park, as well as the East Village where the Blind Barber is located.

      Comments about Blind Barber Tompkins Small Candle, 6.2 oz:

      When it comes to candles--and fragrances in general, for that matter--I fall squarely into the "less is more" camp. I can't walk within twenty meters of those bath and body care retail establishments at the local shopping mall without sneezing profusely and fighting off the dry heaves. Yes, this candle falls on the pricier end of the spectrum, but after lighting it up one evening in a room full of guests and listening to their remarks, I'm sold. The clever packaging rift on the vintage canister of barbicide also makes for a fun conversation piece. I rarely use the word "sexy" as an adjective, but there's something unmistakably masculine about the mix of lavender, smoke, and yes, leather. It might sound strange, but it works very, very well. Bottom line, this candle could go head to head with the best of them (*cough* Tom Ford *cough*) any day. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
