Color: Seville
  • A handcrafted, tallow-based shaving soap
  • Loaded with tallow, glycerin, and Kokum Butter
  • Scented with a traditional barbershop aroma for a great anytime fragrance

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.

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.

One of my favorites.

This soap base is amazing. The lather created is just perfect. It's thick, rich, creamy, and plenty of protection for your skin. I absolutely love the scent. It does have that classic barbershop scent but to my nose with a hint of orange. It kind of reminds me of an orange soda almost. I'll definitely be trying another Barrister & Mann product.

Love the performance of this soap

I love the performance of this soap. It's easy to work with and provides a slick lather that hydrates your skin. The fragrance reminds me of sweet lemon candies (it does have some herbal notes that prevent the sweetness from overpowering the scent and it becoming cloying). While it's not my favorite scent, it's solid and doesn't seem to offend anyone. It's light, fresh, and non-offensive, so it is a great standard go-to soap and post-shave. Pull the trigger, you're not going to regret it.
