Nordost is a seasonal scent for winter

  • Handcrafted aftershave splash with skin-nourishing ingredients
  • Scented with a (subtly) smoky orange aroma
  • This aftershave has a matching shave soap

Have you heard of Barrister and Mann? If you've spent even a moment on the shaving blogs and forums, you are certain to have heard of this artisan soap maker. Amazing performance and inventive scents are putting them on the map. Now they are crafting aftershaves as well. With this Barrister and Mann Aftershave Splash, Nordost, you get the perfect scent for autumn. You won't be disappointed.

This is Barrister and Mann's new splash (Deltus formula) crafted with witch hazel and soothing botanicals to bring you a post-shave delight. Although alcohol-based, it has even more soothing, abrasion relief, and moisturizing than previous versions. Very silky and smooth. And it is home to the best B&M fragrances.

Description from the Vendor

We released Nordost as a special soap for the Northeast Wetshavers Meetup, and the guys were kind enough to work with us so that we can release it to the general public as well. Nordost is specifically a smoked orange scent (the smoke is EXTREMELY subtle)

"Try not thinking of peeling an orange. Try not imagining the juice running down your fingers, the soft inner part of the peel. The smell. Try and you can't. The brain doesn't process negatives.” -Douglas Coupland

Of all the brilliant creations of Chinese antiquity, perhaps none is so humble or so enchanting as the orange. Sweet and juicy, warm and inviting, the fruit has been cultivated around the world for centuries, and was so prized by Louis XIV that he ordered the construction of an orangery at Versailles that remains one of the largest and grandest in the world, housing hundreds of plants since its completion in 1663. The French king was even known to have the trees potted in solid silver basins and placed throughout the state rooms of the palace in order to perfume the air. Unfortunately, transferring that wonderful scent to soap has proven to be difficult.

Orange oil is famously frustrating to work with, highly unstable and prone to oxidation, and extremely weak unless you use the stuff by the bucketful, which can disturb the chemistry of soap and presents skin allergen problems. We’ve searched for years for a safe way to produce an orange scent that properly reflects the rich warmth of the genuine article, and, at long last, we’ve finally found it. The product of this effort is our newest and grandest citrus creation: Nordost.

Rich and elegant, with undertones of dusky sweetness, Nordost is the smell of smoked oranges, their peels made leathery by the heat, their juice darkened and concentrated and wonderful. This is no weak, muddled orange scent, handicapped by the fragility of the fruit’s natural oil, but instead an intense, distinctly authentic fragrance so deeply luscious that you’ll swear you’ve buried your face in a basket of the real thing. We consider Nordost to be one of our crowning achievements, a glorious, impassioned love letter to the warmest and friendliest citrus. Enjoy, and long live the orange.

Love Letter To Oranges

If you like citrus or orange scents, Nordost from Barrister and Mann is a great way to go. I really like this aftershave. It has a wonderful orange note with just a slight whiff of smoke in the background. The scent stays with you for a while, which I really like. Feels great going on my skin. Pair it with the Nordost shaving soap, which is also great. Highly recommended.

WAY Too Much Smoke...

From what I read...this was supposed to be a nice orange scent with a hint of smoke, Well...not for me, Not subtle at all...It was more like orange juice with a LOT of Liquid Smoke added...
