  • A handcrafted, tallow-based shaving soap

Barrister and Mann is an artisan soap maker making waves with their fascinating scents and fabulous lather. Like many who got their start in soap making, this artisan wanted to battle sensitive skin and run-of-the-mill scents. Will did that in spades. His tallow-soap is a dream come true. 

Introducing Barrister and Mann's new Excelsior soap base. This is a company that never rests on its laurels (although they can claim more than most). They have continued to innovate and improve. Now, in addition to white/black label, Reserve, and Glissant, you can enjoy Excelsior. This tallow-base is a significant upgrade from the Glissant base, says Will. It hits the best of all the bases. It lathers similar to Reserve, lasts longer than Glissant and is less finicky about water. This base DOES contain lanolin, so those with sensitivities should be aware.

This scent is so popular that it is hard to keep it on the shelf. When you need a "go-to" fragrance, this is it. Taking a book from classic barbershop aroma, B&M combines bergamot, lemon, patchouli, oakmoss, lavender and rosemary into a fresh, clean aroma. Evoke the experience of storefront with striped poles opening to reclining chairs, newspapers, hot towels, and a pampering shave.

Get a classic shave from this classic soap, Barrister and Mann Excelsior Shaving Soap, Seville.

Good soap

This is good soap. It is slick, easy to build a good lather, and has a VERY good scent. It is my favorite brighter scent. It is kind of what I think of for a classic citrusy complex barber type scent. If you like that type of citrus scent, give it a whirl you will dig it.

Richest, Creamiest Shaving Soap I've Experienced!

Based on reviews here, I asked for this shaving soap for a Christmas gift, along with one other brand. At first, I was a bit dismayed that the puck wouldn't fit into my shaving cup. But, then it hit me: You *****, you don't need a shaving cup for this, it is self-contained!! 5-stars for that convenience. But, the biggest surprise was yet to come. With all my other soaps, I had to be real careful to shake most of the water out of the brush first, lest I get light, fluffy suds that were useless. Not the case here! This soap laps up water and asks for more and gives me rich, thick suds! Very creamy. By a wide margin this has become my favorite shaving soap. I'm fine with this fragrance, but also happy to see other options, which I will certainly try! Also, this is a very long-lasting purchase. Great mileage on this soap. A little goes a long way!

Seville, 4oz

The Excelsior base is amazing. It's very easy to lather and provides excellent slickness. The scent really grew on me. I can see why it's so popular.

Great lather terrible scent

This is a great performing soap. It provides slickness along with great cushion for a smooth shave. However, I can't get past the scent of this soap. IMHO, is smells like Mr. Clean. Before buying a full jar try a sample first. I was really disappointed when I used this product from a scent perspective. I'm glad I only spent 12.79 instead of 15.99. Lesson learned, but the samples first. I would rate this as a high value product if the scent was even close to the scent notes posted.
