Barrister and Mann Bay Rum Shaving Soap (4oz)

Sale price£20.95
  • Offered in the new Omnibus soap base
  • A warm, masculine classic, a piece of history and a favourite for winter
  • Incredibly creamy, dense lather
  • Superlative slickness
  • Excellent post-shave feel

Way back in the glory days of salty sea dogs, sailors used rum tinctures of West Indie bay and spices as disinfectants, fragrances, deodorants and aftershaves. Over time, many famous fragrance and shaving houses adopted the custom and offered their own versions of the classic scent, which proved to be extremely popular with barbers as well. Barrister and Mann is proud to offer its own version of a classic Bay Rum. Dispensing with the modern custom of using large amounts of clove, they instead blend real black strap rum with West Indie bay, sweet orange, cinnamon and benzoin (a vanilla-like resin). Barrister and Mann Bay Rum Shaving Soap is a warm, masculine classic, a piece of history and a favourite for winter, but is well-suited for any time of year.

Possibly the best artisan soap base on the market

As echoed in my other reviews, possibly the best artisan soap base n the market.
The scent to my nose reminds me of mice pie filling, sweet, spicy and a touch of citrus. Not a typical Bay Rum.

Lovely, refreshing shaving soap.

Lovely, refreshing shaving soap. Great lather with a badger's hair brush.
