Barrister and Mann Soft Heart Shaving Soap (4oz)
During the development of their Excelsior soap base, Barrister and Mann submitted to their testers a softer, creamier version of the product that came to be known by its development code; “PP-8.” Known for its slick, protective lather and soft, nourished post-shave feel, PP-8 has been referred to in hushed tones ever since as “the one that got away.” Barrister and Mann originally discarded the formula during development in an effort to create a product that would last longer and provide better value for their customers, but they continued to receive requests that they release some of the soap base to the public. Thus was the inspiration for the Soft Heart Series, so named because of the softer, easier-lathering consistency of the PP-8 soap base.
For this release, Barrister and Mann are thrilled to resurrect one of their most famous fragrances of all; Roam. Inspired by the rugged individualism of American cattle ranchers, they blended the aromas of pipe tobacco, smoke, leather, herbs, fresh dirt and grass into a bright, robust scent reminiscent of life on the open range. Timeless and virile, Roam harkens back to the days of the Old West.
One of the first scents designed by Will and Paula as a team, Rhapsody was inspired by the grand fragrance masterpiece Nicolaï New York and by the lovely aroma of pear blossom that drifts along the thoroughfares surrounding Central Park in Spring. An ode to blossoms of all types, Rhapsody incorporates notes of orange blossom, pear blossom, patcohouli, sandalwood, vanilla, orange, lemon, bay, thyme and rose into a lovely kiss of jammy goodness that brightens even the coldest of weather. It's less floral than you think and much better than you hope, so don't miss out!
