SFWS/ Barrister and Mann Shaving Soap, Saguesera

3 reviews
  • Tallow-based, Excelsior formula for amazing lather
  • Scented with cedar, violet, coconut, lime, all spices, & rum
  • This artisan shave soap has a matching aftershave balm

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. And now he has upped his game yet again with a reformulated Glissant base that lathers even better (is it possible?). And, of course, new scents to keep you coming back for more. 

This is 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. 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 “Barrister’s Reserve®“, lasts longer than Glissant and is less finicky about water. This base DOES contain lanolin, so those with sensitivities should be aware.

The scent was created for the South Florida Wet Shavers (SFWS).

Description from the Vendor

Made to honor Florida's Cuban population and connections, Sagüesera (a Cubanization of the word southwest and a community in Miami) opens with an accord of cedar, violet & coconut, with layered notes of lime, allspice and rum. Sagüesera is an area in southwest Miami which is home to a large Cuban population, and we made this set to pay homage to scents common to daily life in Cuban culture.

Long Lasting Scent

Received a puck of Saguesera for Christmas from my kids who contacted WCS for recommendations. They hit a home run with this suggestion. It's super slick, smells fantastic and has the longest lasting scent of all the soaps I own. Saw only one review online and just had to chime in to recommend this highly. If you like barbershop scents, you will love Saguesera. Bloomed the puck this morning with hot water for a few minutes, poured the bloom water in my scuttle and lathered the puck with a big boar brush. After 3+ passes. had enough lather to do it all again! Shaved with a week old blade in a '67 Super Speed and got a DFS bordering on a BBS with no drag at all.

Complex and Sophisticated

I have to say my appreciation for this soap grew throughout my shave. This soap isn't for everyone, but it's fantastic. First scent upon opening a leather smell, though not listed. To me without lathering it smelled like very expensive leather. That held during my lather but the scent of violet and rum started to come out and the complexity of the soap grew throughout the shave as did my appreciation for the soap. This will make a great year round soap. I really enjoyed it.
