  • A handcrafted, tallow-based shaving soap
  • Loaded with tallow, glycerin, & coconut oil
  • Choose your scent

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. This soap is a dream come true. And this line of throwback scents is top notch.

This grooming requisite is tallow-based to give you that amazing lather and protection. Loaded with amazing ingredients to give you an incredibly creamy, dense lather with slickness to write home about. It works great in hard water as well as soft. The soap is poured hot into the almost 4 inch diameter jar so loading your brush is easy. Reviewer, Jason said, "Barrister and Mann’s soap bases are the great white sharks of the artisan soap sea, they simply have no competition.”

In fact, the one thing that can compete with the soap is the scent. The Reserve line of fragrances are vintage, classic aromas to keep your traditional shave classy. Choose your scent from the drop down menu: Classic, Cool

Classic: Notes of citrus, lavender, moss, and sandalwood with a powdery hint might put you in mind of a barbershop from the 50s - striped pole, plate glass window, leather chairs. Not as strong aromas as some which makes it a great daily use soap.

Cool: This is another take on barbershop with an Italian flare as it tends toward more citrus. Bergamot, lemon, and lavender take you on a Roman holiday. (Unlike the aftershave, it doesn’t contain menthol).

Fern: This scent delivers a fresh, green note that isn’t woody or musky. It centers on oakmoss, lavender, and tonka to create a bright freshness. Patterned after an aroma don’t made in over 60 years.

Lavender: This ubiquitous scent is found in everything from candles to diffuses to teas, but with good reason. Lavender is a light, calming aroma that enhances your shave. This version isn’t sweet or heavily floral, just a nice natural lavender fragrance.

Waves: If you love aquatic aromas, you will love this scent from Barrister and Mann. It evokes the perfect day by the water. Light, floral sweetness of geranium & lavender blend into amber and aquatic notes. You need this in your shaving soap rotation.

Spice: The scent of a Norman Rockwell painting, this fragrance is a throwback to what your grandpa wore. A deep, warm, rich aroma of carnation, nutmeg, vanilla, tonka bean. Pair it with a cardigan and pipe. Lovely!

works great, smells great

Like all Barrister & Mann products, this soap is easy to lather (I face lather) and provides a great shave. It also has a wonderful scent. It's definitely earned its place in my soap rotation.
