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.
Each Soft Heart release is limited to between 95 and 100 jars of soap and 85-90 jars of aftershave balm and each will be produced only once. For this release, Barrister and Mann are proud to present a reissue of one of their very first seasonal scents: Ferox. Angular and explosively green with notes of grapefruit, tea tree, rosemary, vetiver, dalmatian sage and white thyme, Ferox is symbolic of the rampant, overwhelming growth of elemental forests and of the lush verdigris of ancient lands. Winter is coming, but we offer this as our last hurrah.
