This one is masculine. Like really, really masculine. Like a “take an old, beat up leather jacket, drape it over a couple of tires to make a table and clean your guns on it” kind of masculine. Dark, unrefined, and totally unresistible, this is a scent for those who don’t mind sticking out. Those who forge the paths. Those who are proud to be a man.
Scent is made of the following notes: Russian Leather, Motor Oil, Hoppes #9, Birch Tar, Oakmoss, Gasoline, Smoke, Cedar, Cade, Bergamot, Vanilla
Natural extracts and essential oils were used where possible, but some notes – such as Hoppes #9 and rubber are synthetic due to the nature of the scent.
4oz of tallow based soap in a plastic tub (4" diameter and 2" tall).
Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Aloe Vera Juice, Potassium Hydroxide, Beef Tallow, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Glycerin, Fragrance, Mango Butter, Avocado Oil, Silk Powder
I don't normally leave reviews, but I had to leave one for this stuff. This shave soap is great. For a soap, it has a thick lather unlike most shave soaps I've used over the last 40 years. For the scent, I love it. When asked, Mama (wife) said "that's what a man should smell like". That's the best endorsement one can expect. If you don't like the smell, it might be time to turn in your man card, lol!!
I absolutely love the smell of this shaving soap! John Wayne Grit combined with Clint Eastwood macho and a tool time Tim Ah Ah Ah! This soap reminds me of the smell when you walk into Harbor Freight. Pure hard working sense of Manliness! One of my favorites! Yes it smells like gas, leather and smoke! Just like it says on the package. If you dont like this smell then you are a wimp! LOL
I have used the shaving soap at least three or four times now and I am intoxicated by the leather smell. Mr. “horrible stink” and Mr. “yuck” didn’t seem to like the scent at all but I smelled no gasoline nor any horrible scents. I certainly didn’t get the odor of Hoppes gun cleaning products. I know what Hoppes smells like because I utilize the product. I thought that it. smells like the leather jacket that I had that my college days and was saddened because I tossed out the old jacket. Smelling the Midnight Stag brought me back to some of the happiest days in my life even if they are long gone. If you like the smell of leather, try a small sample of the soap…….
You might hate it, however you just might be surprised and fall in love with your new favorite scent.

Smells like all gasoline
Can’t smell anything but gas
a very nice manly scent. the scent of this soap and aftershave morphs with time. as dry down occurs, different background scents peek out nicely. I smell vanilla and a spice underneath the Gasoline and Hoppes #9. the smokiness bounces in and out too.
if your looking for something different.......this might very well be it.
