Barrister and Mann Tallow Shaving Soap, Lavanille

6 reviews
  • A handcrafted, tallow-based shaving soap
  • Scented with essential oils and fragrance oils
  • Loaded with tallow, glycerin, coconut oil, and shea butter

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. They did that in spades. Their famous tallow-soap is a dream come true. Try Barrister and Mann Tallow Shaving Soap, Lavanille.

This grooming requisite is tallow-based to give you that amazing lather and protection. It includes glycerin and lanolin for a slick glide and hydration. Coconut milk and shea butter also add moisturizing properties to keep your face happy. The soap is poured hot into the almost 4 inch diameter jar so loading your brush is easy. This is a "thirsty" soap so it might require more water than you are accustomed to using. Don't be stingy!

Barrister and Mann are passionate about creating fragrances that keep you coming back. And a scent with a story is so much more intriguing. Lavanille is a perfume fairy tale. Once upon a time the House of DeLaire created a magnificent perfume base for a legendary perfume firm. "Mousse de Saxe" (Saxon Moss) used a new aromatic chemical that was bitter, dark, leathery, and potent. It became the base of many great masterpieces until it was lost to the mists of time. Then came the day that B&M had the good fortune to obtain a sample of the original. In a painstaking process, they recreated this famous base by smell alone. Now, they use that base in a scent of their own making, Lavanille. They blend Mousse de Saxe with lavender, vanilla, cedar wood, and musk to create an elegant scent, not enjoyed for nearly half a century.

Live happily ever after with Barrister and Mann Tallow Shaving Soap, Lavanille.

Barrister and Mann Tallow Shaving Soap, Lavanille

The scent is great! Reminds me of dark chocolate and what i can only describe as a sweet smelling mud i guess. Love the Vanilla and musk notes! I have it in the glissant base and they have now moved this soap to the excelsior base which can only mean the performance is even better!

From one of the best scents in the market to semi-disaster

Well, B&M is amongst my top 3 brands and I have purchased almost everything they produced. How could they simply destroy a best seller this way ? Their new Lavanille scent has nothing to do with the original classy one. Texture is fine, but B&M always offers great textures. It's just unfortunate they decided to change for the worse the scent of this superb soap. I'll not buy it again unless they restore the true Lavanille. A pity.

The aroma changed for the worse

Finally, I see that there are people who give an honest assessment. I made my report on three forums that the new version of soap from Will differs from the previous flavor for the worse. On two forums the topic was closed. Here is my reportI was a big fan of Barrister & Mann Shaving Soap However, a year ago I decided to abandon this manufacturer. Will did amazing aromas. My favorites are Leviathan, Dickens, Vetiver-Santal, Bay Rom, Sevilla, Lime-Lavender-Cedar. I'm happy to shave with these soaps. But the first alarm bell for me was more than a year ago, when Will slightly changed the flavor of "Dickens", then a little changed the flavor of "Leviathan" I made reviews about Dickens and Leviathan at the Russian shaving forum Many who bought new versions of these soaps agreed with me. Likewise, bought this year Lavanil, argue that the flavor has changed a little. I'm sorry that Will changed a little flavor. I use to the end the old formulas of Leviathan and Dickens and I will not buy this soap anymore.

Hate the smell

Lavanille is my 5th soap from barrister and man. While I was impressed with Dickens and figgy puddin, I have been quite unimpressed with the others. To be honest, I really don't understand all the hype with barrister and Mann. I think there are a lot better soaps out there, and B&M are overrated. Lavanille scent is strange, and think the other review for this soap was spot on. It smells like dirt, but in a purfumey kinda way. It's actually very similar to the Most recent release of hallows, which I didn't like at all. Performance is "ok". Definitely won't be buying anymore of their overpriced products, and will stick with better soaps like LPL and Saponificio verisino. Also, Sapone di paolo is some of best soap I've used, and I consider to compete with some of the best out there. Disappointed...

Barrister and Mann

This outfit is good at marketing ordinary soaps with a college-boy vocabulary. Great scents, but this company really thinks it's as fancy as their advertising is even though they are just making shaving soaps by hand,
