Description from Joe @BlackMountainShaving

Every year as a boy growing up, we would travel to our place in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  Sometimes at spring, and others at fall, we would be greeted by a time where things moved slower.  On rare occasions, my parents would let us break out the original Atari with the only game we had for it: Pong.  It was just us, that endless forest, the streams, and the slate that bound us together as a family - these sacred lands once held by the Eastern Band Cherokee and more.

Along all the paths I have traveled and the adventures I have been a part of, I have been struck by the seemingly endless connectivity that holds even the most uncanny things together.  There is a positive energy we all leave behind with each step we take.  This is a realization that came to me during those moments underneath the thick canopies of the Nantahala forest, the land of the noonday sun.

Nantahala means "jumping waters" in Cherokee, and as water makes it's way through and binds slate, granite, and

Nantahala is a dedication to and celebration of nature and the spiritual connectivity that binds us all.  Clean streams, slate and rock, trees, woods, and the sweet sunlight on our faces.  Every note in this fragrance carries a meaning for me and my time with family in the Nantahala forest.  The sun is represented by citrus notes such as bergamot, pear, and lemon.  Marine notes and pink pepper remind me of clean water running over stone, and the dark canopy of the forest is brought by notes such as wood, tonka, patchouli and lavender.

We hope you enjoy your experience with Nantahala.

Murphy & McNeil

Welcome to Murphy and McNeil, where we believe in the power of little luxuries. Our brand's mission is simple yet profound: to enhance your daily experiences and help you appreciate life's small pleasures. Think about it—there are certain things we do every day that, with a small upgrade, can truly enrich our lives. Whether it's investing in a luxurious pillow, indulging in high thread-count sheets, savoring a remarkable meal, or slipping into a pair of comfortable shoes, these seemingly minor improvements can make a remarkable difference in the quality of our days. At Murphy and McNeil, we firmly believe that shaving and grooming should be included in this list of transformative indulgences. Many people go through their daily shower and shave routines without realizing just how much more enjoyable they can be. We have allowed these essential rituals to become mere commodities, prioritizing convenience and affordability over the overall experience. But we deserve better. Consider this: shaving every day for 40 years adds up to nearly 15,000 shaves. Shouldn't each one of those moments be great, rather than forgettable and mundane? We believe that shaving should be something to look forward to, a pleasurable experience rather than a monotonous task to check off the to-do list. That's where Murphy and McNeil comes in. We exist to cater to fellow shaving enthusiasts, whether they are newcomers or seasoned veterans, and introduce them to the wonders of traditional shaving and premium grooming products. Our goal is to help you discover the incredible benefits and luxuries that can be derived from this age-old craft. We have curated a superb collection of new, used, and unique artisan shaving products, all crafted by passionate artisans and dedicated fans who have kept the traditional shaving community thriving. Our platform not only allows us to showcase our own exceptional creations but also provides a convenient space for other small artisans to share their work and passions. We invite you to slow down and relish in these experiences that are available to all of us. Every person we introduce to the concept of upgrading their daily shave or shower into a moment of indulgence is a victory in itself. It's the driving force behind our existence. Your presence here means the world to us, and we genuinely value your feedback. We are committed to evolving around the needs of our community, and we encourage you to reach out and share your thoughts with us. Thank you for choosing Murphy and McNeil. Together, let's transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, one shave at a time.
