Barrister and Mann Vespers Shaving Soap (4oz)

Sale price£22.95

Every year the Christmas Market of Goslar in Germany opens in late November to international acclaim. Arguably the most famous Christmas Market in the world, the idyllic setting and beautiful forest of lit fir trees have captured the imaginations of artists and dreamers alike for hundreds of years. Barrister and Mann are proud to be among them. Vespers is the product of a specific picture, the image of a quaint mountain town in late December, snow falling gently on the peaked roofs, lights twinkling in the square. As one of the historic meeting places of Lower Saxony, Barrister and Mann felt it necessary to incorporate their legendary version of Mousse de Saxe ("Saxon Moss"), in all its velvety darkness, into any fragrance representative of the village. Onto this they layered cranberry, cardamom, balsam, and a fern accord for a spicy-jammy-forest character. Patchouli, rose, sandalwood, and bergamot round out the rough edges to produce a scent one might expect to waft from a merrymaking hall on a chill evening. Barrister and Mann Vespers shaving soap has the ultimate comfort scent for the dark months and we're very excited to bring it to you this winter.

Awesome scent

It's very difficult to find the words to describe the scent of this product but it's awesome. Great texture and feel to the soap. Needs plenty of water compared to some others I've used. Will be exploring more of this range in time

scent is amazing

very smooth and the scent is amazing

Wholeheartedly recommended.

Not my first B&M, but my first soap in the Omnibus-base. And what a joy. This was in my top 10 best shaved ever. The thick and slick lather is phenomenal. The post shave feeling is among the best. The scent is warm and pleasant. Wholeheartedly recommended.


Lather is so thick, i was just wondering. Scent is strong christmasy, sandalwood, cranberry at first, then complexity of an Xmas market. Sweet, warm excellent for winter shaving. Little last for eternity.
Thx Finn for great service and surprise :)!

Interesting and complex

B&M Vespers is an interesting and complex shave soap, I actually wanted to pick this up in 2019 however it had sold out, finally got it this year in 2021. I consider Vespers a slightly dark, spicy yet fresh strong scent which suits the festive season and winter months. For me the main scent notes I get are fir, fern and cranberry. Slickness is excellent from the Omnibus base. Would recommend Vespers to anyone that likes festive winter scents.
