Osma’s preshave oil, 100% made in France if ever there was one, is a pleasantly nourishing and dense oil boasting an esteemed list of 100%-NATURAL ingredients.
The goal of lubrication under the lather imparted is certainly met, as well as is generally adding moisture to the beard, which is always a good thing.
But it is the scent of this oil, sharing the seductive profile of their amazing post shave balm and aftershave ‘lotion’ and shaving soap, which will get you coming back again and again to overpay for fine French software. Frankly, they should produce an EDT of it, because it would sell like hotcakes.
Having observed countless people smell it back when we had a walk-in shop, I’d never once denoted a negative reaction, and watching people smell things is as revealing as watching poker players receive cards.
This is one of the very few obviously-overpriced software items that your dutiful commercial-interest-biased vendor-salesman has pulled from stock, repeatedly, for ten-plus years. It’s incredibly nice to smell and helps me shave better, in lieu of a proper long-form pre-shave routine. Shame about the price.
