Barrister and Mann Mélange Shaving Soap (4oz)

Sale price£21.95

Mélange is proudly offered in the new lanolin-free Omnibus shaving soap base.

Arrakis. Dune. The only source of the most valuable substance in the known universe, the one that has the power to make or break an empire: The Spice.

The fundamental force underlying Frank Herbert's famously influential and notoriously complex work Dune, the spice Mélange, often known simply as "the spice", is a powerful psychoactive that makes space travel within the story possible. Without it, the mutated navigators of the Spacing Guild cannot predict the flight paths of interstellar starships, and flying blind in such a fashion is a good way to materialise from warp space inside the heart of a star.

In case you couldn't tell, the guys at Barrister and Mann are huge fans of Dune, so, in honour of both one of their favourite novels of all time as well as its recent cinematic adaptation, they wanted to create something truly special. Thus was born Mélange, their interpretation of the scent of the spice itself. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, bay, musk and desert air blend to produce an intensely spicy, all-encompassing aroma that brings to mind remote deserts, underground cultures and the rumblings of revolution.

The Omnibus base is wonderful

The Omnibus base is wonderful. Really good thick lather with a wonderful post-shave feel. The scent on this one is a live it or loathe it in my opinion. It’s a warm and very spicy (cinnamon heavy) scent. For me it’s much more Christmas oriented than Vespers. If you have a sensitive skin I wouldn’t advise this scent.

Great themed soap

Great themed soap also with lovely texture and bonus scent. Looks like it'll last a good while as you don't need much each application.

Tip drawer as always

The items arrived in Ireland 2 days after I ordered them, which was amazing given it was 4 days before Christmas. Melange is a fantastic scent and very warm, so perfect for winter. The new base from B&M is quite something (slick, smooth and non-drying).
