Duke Cannon is a military-inspired man’s grooming brand that is focused on delivering products made for real ‘men’- hard-working and fun-loving people. Starting from the concept to packaging- Duke Cannon is different than every other brand in every aspect.
Under the brand Duke Cologne, you’ll find fragrances, soaps, lip balms, and many other products. Each of their products is branded and marketed as a daily companion of men.
Though their branding may seem awkward to some people, their products are unbeatable from the perspective of quality.
I’ve tested a few of their soaps and now I’m going to talk about what I think about those. This Duke Cannon soap review might help you to find your perfect soap from Duke Cannon. So, without further ado, let’s start the reviews.
Top 6 Duke Cannon Soap Review
Big American Bourbon Soap
Big American Bourbon soap is the first one from Duke Cannon that I’ve tried. The reason is- this might be the most used soap from them. What was my experience? Let me share.
The packaging was very simple and the design was classic. It was old-school but catchy.
The soap bar was a solid rectangular bar with no excess dents- straight and rough, exactly what a man can wish for.
The smell took me back to the old western cities where the evening started with crowds and a mug full of whiskey. They’ve added Buffalo Trace Bourbon to the ingredients list.
I’ve used it regularly while taking a shower. It leathers well without any issues.
The result was far better than the designer’s soaps. The smell was a lot different than all of those. After a few days, the smell settled on my body and people started to like it.
The rough and manly smell helped me to improve my spirit inside. I was very pleased with how I smelled.
Overall, the Big American Bourbon soap gives you a manly and unique smell that people can’t avoid. Maybe your girlfriend also can’t avoid you even when you’re fighting. Try this out.
Big Ass Brick of Soap – Midnight Swim
A real man’s refreshing dip is in a forest lake, not in a hot tub- Duke Cannon loves to think this way. That’s why they’ve introduced the Midnight Swim Big Ass soap that takes you on a ride to a forest lake under the full bright moon.
My first impression of this soap was amazing. The bar was huge and heavy, just like other soap bars from this brand. I love how it smells.
Similarly, I love how it lathers up. It is so fast in this. So, you won’t have to stay in the bathroom for an eternity. After taking a shower with it, I started feeling fresh.
I have something more to say about the durability of the fragrance. Though the fragrance made me fresh and energized, it didn’t last that long. So, if you’re a fan of long-lasting fragrances, this is not the one for you.
This bar can give you the experience of swimming in a forest lake on a moonlit night, but after a few hours of the shower, you’ll be brought back to reality. However, a refreshing dip is all you can look for when in a shower.
Overall, I love how it smells and what it makes me feel. But from the sense of durability, the smell won’t get more than 6 out of 10.
Big Ass Brick of Soap – Campfire
Campfire is the third soap from Duke Cannon that I’ve used. The soap is inspired by the concept of a glowing campfire under the sky full of stars. Duke Cannon believes that a real man loves to pass the night with a lot of stories right beside a campfire, not in a fancy bar or party or movie.
The packaging is also designed based on the concept. It seemed like a western movie poster to me at the first glance.
The campfire big ass brick of soap is actually a big ass.
It comes with a raw scent of recently cut hickory for starting a campfire. Maybe you’ll also find a very subtle scent of charcoal.
I think campfire is not the feel I want to have in a shower. But it’s okay because I love the smell.
The soap lathers up easily and quickly. But this creates another problem- if you use it daily, it won’t last for a long time.
However, the smell lasts for a long time compared to the Midnight Swim. If you’re looking for an 8-10 hours smell, it is not for you. But the duration of the smell was enough for me. Besides, if you use it daily, there is a chance that the scent will sit on your body.
Overall, I love the Campfire soap from Duke Cannon. I just hope that it could last a bit longer than it actually does. Except for this, there is nothing else to complain about.
Big Ass Brick of Bay Rum Soap
This one is a great soap from Duke Cannon- especially for summer and spring. This brick of bay rum smells a bit different than the usual ones, but you’ll love it. It is lighter, brighter, and probably better than usual.
It comes with the woody smell of cedarwood, citrusy vibe, and a touch of island spices that make you feel that you’re on an island enjoying your leisure time. The smell helps you to stand out from others but in a milder way.
The regular Duke Cannon packaging with classic design comes with the soap. As always, I love it.
This is not overly fragranced. So, I didn’t find the smell very strong. I love this type of mild smell. So, it didn’t bother me at all. But if you’re looking for a strong one, it might not satisfy you.
The durability of the soap matters to me. Big Ass Brick of Bay Rum soap was moderate in this case. I expected a soap for which I’ve spent around $9 to last a bit longer. But as I like the smell, I won’t mind picking it again.
Overall, Bay Rum is not at the top of my favorite list, but it is somewhere there. If you want to experience a different feeling of Bay Rum, you can try this out. Keep in mind that the smell is mild and doesn’t stay for all day. Now the decision is yours.
Big Ass Lump of Coal Soap
If you want the cleansing power of charcoal, Duke Cannon has this for you. It’ll let you enjoy a deep cleansing of charcoal without trading off the Duke Cannon supremacy.
The black packaging with classic fonts on it is outstanding, just like other Duke Cannon soaps.
The bar is a huge blackish rectangular one that feels great to touch. I love the look.
While applying, it lathers up well. Besides, it cleanses well and removes odors from your body. It leaves you with a masculine and nice smell that your wife will love. The fragrance comes with a subtle smell of black pepper and bergamot. This has made this smell masculine but youthful. I love to be smelt like this.
An issue is- the smell doesn’t last for a long time. But if the smell sits on your body, you won’t want to leave it.
Another great side of Lump of Coal soap is it doesn’t leave your skin dry.
Overall, this soap washes great and leaves you with a great smell. But the smell is a bit youthful. So, I guess it won’t be a good fit for elder people.
Compared to the size, it may seem to be a bit expensive. But trust me, it is worthy.
Big Texas Beer Soap – Made With Lone Star
This soap is specially made for you if you love Texas. It is made through the partnership with Lone Star Beer from Texas. So, you’ll get a subtle smell of your favorite Lone Star Beer for sure.
The soap is big. If you have a huge masculine hand, you’ll feel to with it in hand. The application is also easier. You won’t have to rub a lot to get it lathered up, at least I didn’t have to. This huge but cut soap is worthy of the price tag.
As beer soap, I expected this to come with a strong and dominating smell of beer. But the smell of beer is very subtle and manly. It doesn’t say that you spent a lot of your time in a bar. Instead, it helps you to express your masculine vibe subtly.
Besides the smell of beer, it comes with the woodsy, fresh, and attractive smell of sandalwood. Among all the Duke Cannon soaps, this one was the best in my opinion.
Overall, with fresh sandalwood and a subtle beer smell, this soap offers you an experience that you won’t find anywhere else. This is the Duke Cannon specialty- simple, classic yet almost impossible to beat, just like the example of a perfect ‘Man’.
I haven’t used all the soaps from Duke Cannon, but the ones I’ve used made me fall in love with Duke Cannon. I’m looking for each of the soaps from Duke Cannon and enjoy the experience.
Among the soaps I’ve used, I love the Big Texas Beer Soap and the Big American Bourbon Soap. This doesn’t mean I don’t like the rest. Each was awesome and my girlfriend loved all those. Using the soaps from Duke Cannon is an experience that I don’t want to forget.
