Nordost is a seasonal scent for winter

  • Artisan shaving soap 
  • In tallow, Omnibus base
  • Scented with a (subtly) smoky orange aroma

Will Carius launched Barrister and Mann in 2013 out of his tiny apartment in Boston, MA. Inspired to try traditional shaving because of his extremely sensitive skin, he soon found a following for his wonderful soaps and fantastic fragrances. Now his fans await each new release with eager expectation.

This seasonal release soap is in Barrister and Mann’s Omnibus soap base. It is a tallow-based recipe (without lanolin) that whips up a wonderful froth from the butters, oils, and extracts. You will be sure to get the slickness, protection, and glide that you want from this soap.

Orange - such an assuming and simple scent - but one that has a long history of scenting & flavoring. However, as beloved as it is, it is frustratingly difficult to work with in fragrances. You need so much of the essential oil that it becomes an allergen and skin-irritant. After years of researching, Will has crafted a way to use this rich, citrus aroma in his soap. The result is smoky orange aroma called Nordost. This scent has an elegant richness. A subtly sweet and smoky  note enhances the intense, authentic aroma of orange. Will considers this one of his crowning achievements. Enjoy!

Net Wt. 4 oz

Amazing scent and performance.

Incredible scent and performance. B&M does it again with the best orange scent out there. This is a must have. Post-shave is the best out there. So soft and slick.

Not quite what I thought it would be

As a shave soap, it hit all the right notes. Slick, thick, good shave. However, I was surprised that the excellent orange of the puck did not extend to the "after the shave smell" on my face as some other shave soaps have afforded me

Superb citrus scent.

Not very strong to my nose. But surely a must have for those that can appreciate citrus scents. It's beautiful! Slickness is great as with all B&M Soaps. WCS customer service is top notch! Was lucky to buy it on sale on black Friday.

Wonderful Soap

This soap is wonderful. The new base is among my favorites. The scent is untypical in its simplicity for Barrister and Mann. It smells like the most orange orange that’s ever oranged! I get almost no smoke scent at all.

Really nice soap

I love the performance of B&M soaps.This is no exception. Scents obviously are subjective and I have had some B&M soaps I did not care for as far as scents.This one is quite a nice scent in my opinion. It has a slighly smoky scent with a nice orange base. I would think it would have been released more in the spring time but no matter, it is a great performing soap (Excelsior base).
