  • Traditional shaving soap
  • Tallow-based
  • Scented with a limited edition winter aroma

Will, at Barrister and Mann, handcrafts products to take your groom to a new level. One of Will’s passions is scent and it shows. He is offering a regular line up of phenomenal, dependable classics, but his seasonal and limited edition aromas really get some love.

This soap base from Barrister and Mann is a lathering delight. The Omnibus recipe doesn’t contain any lanolin so those with sensitivities can lather up carefree. It does, however, boast tallow for a long-lasting lather as well as a plethora of oils, butters, and extracts to give you a rich, dense, moisturizing shave.

Ever wonder what it smelled like on “The Night Before Christmas”? Well, Will set out to imagine that with this Eigengrau scent. Eigengrau (German for dark light or absence of light) is the perfect name of a fragrance that seeks to capture the scent of moonlight on snow. This whimsical idea is represented by notes of iris, cold water, lichen, fir needle, and loam.


Size: 4oz.

Good scent. Great soap.

I like this soap a lot. The scent is unique. It’s botanical and earthy with a crisp edge to it. Another user commented that it was great for a night shave, and I agree. The cool, calming scent is a great way to get ready for bed. The lather is excellent. It builds quickly and is nice and slick. I’m really enjoying it!

Solid scent. Floral and woodsy.

This is a nice scent and lathers well. Did not get any of the plastic/fake scent mentioned in the other review, so maybe it’s a preference or just bad batch. The iris here is pretty strong-not a lot of fir/pine which is disappointing but not a dealbreaker. Feels like a winter scent!

Great before bed shave

I tend to shave before bed. Half the time I end up regretting using a strong scented soap and aftershave. I find my self washing my face because the smell is too strong. This Eigengrau scent really has a dark, night like aroma that's fresh and cold. Great before bed shave smell that's complex but not too in your face strong. Get the matching after shave it's great as well. First time Barrister and Mann user, performance is great.

Awful scent but performance is great

I had high hopes for this one but I gagged when I took my first whiff. The smell of ozone is overpowering and it reminds me of a very cheap car air freshener. The smell is very artificial and I can't imagine anyone actively wanting to smell like this. If you can get past the smell the performance of the soap, like all B&M products is phenomenal. This one ended up in the trash can.
