  • Artisan, tallow-based shaving soap
  • Scented with a citrus-spice-earth aroma of a Chypre perfume
  • Loaded with moisturizing goodness: glycerin, coconut milk, shea butter, and lanolin

Artisan soap maker, Will Carius, is the hands (and nose) behind Barrister and Mann. Started out of his apartment in Boston, his fledgling company is soaring. With exceptional soap and (even more) amazing scents, he keeps innovating while staying true to his roots. Try Barrister and Mann Le Grand Chypre Shaving Soap and see why folks keep coming back for more.

You want your soap to do its job, of course. So B&M created this tallow based product with glycerin, coconut milk, shea butter, lanolin, allantoin, and silk protein. It whips up into a frothy lather sure to protect and moisturize. And they never test on animals (other than themselves!). Don't be stingy with the water on this "thirsty" soap and you're sure to produce a slick, yogurt-thick lubricant. Reviewers are raving, "The quality of lather is outstanding, equally as good as anything I have ever tried, but the scents really set them apart."

. . .like the scent of this Chypre. This family of fragrances was inspired by renowned perfumer, Francois Coty and takes inspiration from the island of Cyprus. It is characterized by a citrus top note, a heart of labdanum, and a mossy-earthy-musky base. Take a walk along the beaches of this Mediterranean nation and catch notes of bergamot, lime, labdanum, oakmoss, and patchouli all wrapped up in peach, rose, frankincense, cedar, & cinnamon. This elegant, fresh scent is perfect for the refined shaver.

Size: 4oz.

Nice Scent

Very Soap and lathering takes practice, but you’ll master it quickly.

Great performance

Great scent and performance. I was a little wary of the scent at first, but now it is one of my favorites

Fruit, Flowers & Woods

The accord is complex, with woods and flowers, though my main takeaway is fruit. I smell a very forward Bergamot and Lime up front, and just a hint of Peach underneath. I struggled a bit with the lather. I thought I loaded up the brush correctly, but it just didn't want to lather in the scuttle. Finally, after about 90 seconds of whipping and 3 times adding water, I got it into shape. The lather was good, but not great. It didn't want to spread evenly on my face. It did better when I really worked it onto my cheeks. It seems to thicken and improve with face lathering. I thought this meant that continued application of water was the correct course and, indeed, my third pass was the best lather. But after adding a few drops for my bonus lather, I found the breaking point. It was a pretty thin final coating, alas.

Not For Everyone

I love this stuff: I get a terrific shave, even though the lather seemed a bit "flimsy" at first. WCS is right that this soap needs lots of water, but is great in the end. While my wife and I both like the scent, it's unusual (which I like), and some may be put off by it. For anyone feeling uncertain about risking the $25, you might just have to jump in, because I don't think WCS offers this as a sample.
