Cannot get enough of this scent!
"Masterfully crafted winter scent by Barrister and Mann. The new Excelsior base is the best there is also. I will be using the soap and aftershave set throughout the entire winter here in New England. "

Reserve Lavender
"Amazing! Very slick, it takes water with ease. You don’t have to worry about trying to add the right amount. I can’t wait to try Cool,Spice,classic and Fern. B&M got it right "

Best Christmas seasonal scent yet
"The splash is a perfect complement to the soap. The scent is phenomenal, and performance of the soap, in brand new Excelsior base, was off the charts. One of my very favorite artisans for their scent mastery and attention to quality and performance."

Helping me build a year-round B&M collection
"Another winner. At this point, I've bought quite a few Barrister and Mann products. The quality is constant--I get a good lather quickly. So now I just look at the scent. And this is a great, warm, holiday scent. There's a bit of spice, a bit of freshness, and a bit of citrus. This one will definitely stick in the rotation for the cold months ahead. "

"Got the soap as a sample and was ecstatic when it came out. Had to buy the aftershave when it came out. Great smell."

Love this soap
"I got a sample of this with one of my previous orders before it was officially out. Been waiting for B&M to put it out and ordered as soon as it appeared. Great smell, very fresh!"

Work it
"This is my first review on any item that I purchased. I am a fan of B&M's Reserve soaps. The aroma of this soap is pleasant but not over bearing. You won't feel guilty and turn in your man card when using it. This soap like the other reserve soaps are water hungry. Yet a little bit (25 swirls of your brush) goes a long way. This soap is ideal with a mild gap razor with sharp blade. The razor doesn't get clogged because the lather doesn't tend to dry up and be too thick."

Waves Shave Soap
"Well if you like the vintage Gillette Wild Rain scent then this shave soap is for you. The reserve base loves its water so when loading don’t be afraid to have a little extra water in the brush. Synthetic’s work the best with this soap base. The soap is slick protective and irritation free. My neck is very sensitive and usually gets irritated after the first pass and this soap allows me to get a closer shave with almost no irritation than other soaps. Smells great performs great give it a shot."

Waves Aftershave
"Very very very good Aftershave splash. Loaded with all the skin food your skin needs. I’ve heard the scent is supposed to smell like Gillette’s Wild Rain scent. That being said I prefer performance over scent and this Aftershave splash checks both boxes. Smells great and the performance is everything you’d expect from B&M!"

WOW
"This was my first purchase of a Barrister andMann product. I can’t get over the slickness of the soap and ease of lathering. The smell of this soap is outstanding and last longer than any soap I own. "

Perfect new scent for the holidays
"Love the new “holiday” scent but don’t ask me to describe it. As for the new base, I have had great experiences with all previous and this base is no exception."

Wonderful
"The scent of this shaving soap is very deep and mysterious but not overpowering. It is perfect for the fall season and goes nicely with my warm cup of coffee on a cold winter morning. It is also the best lathering and slickest soap I have ever used. Just beware females also love the scent. My wife attacked me the first morning I used it!"

Not limited to Christmas
"There’s nothing about Vespers that makes it a Christmas scent. There is a bright tart berry/woody scent that deepens as you lather. I got the AS and the EDT. Those stock around and develop the scent past the sweet little head you get from the soap. You really need to use the set together to get the scent of this stuff figured out. As the woody smells deepen with som floral and mossy mid notes, you settle into a nice sweet smelling walk in the woods, and then you get a spicy spiked fruit punch in a hall decked with boughs as the lasting scent after the first things fade. But you won’t get any of that from the soap. This is Will’s celebrated “Icarius” base, in which Will, flush with success, flies too close to the sun and his fat and connective tissue is rendered into tallow for the soap. Okay, no. We haven’t gotten to human tallow yet. This one is very good with its current ingredients list. I love tallow and lanolin shaving soap. Beef, mutton, duck, bison, Icarius, doesn’t matter. Almost all my best shaves have been with tallow/lanolin soaps. This one is among the very best. The first couple times I shaved with Vespers, I went with a “Will” load of not a lot of soap with extended face lathering, taking the time to build a dense meringue with great sheen and weight. And I got an okay shave each time. Today I went with a “Stallion” load. Load it like you hate it. Painted it on pasty and painted water over it before working it into a much denser, creamier lather in much less time. I added enough water to get the slickness I need but left it very dense. I was rewarded with a top 5 shave. I love my Reserve soaps. Spice is a favorite and Lavender is lights out. But this stuff is commercial grade. One of the very best. "

Vespers!!
"Absolutely love the scent and lather. I have multiple holiday scented soaps from several different artisans and this has definitely moved to the front of the line! Picked up the matching aftershave and had the scent all day long. Well done Will!"

Best scent of the Reserve line IMO!
"I love the Reserve Line it is probably my very favorite soap. The first three scents were not for me at all (smelled like deodorant to me) then the released Lavander, and Fern, I was like "Now we're talking"! Just recently B&M released "Waves" and it is probably my favorite of the line, if they keep smelling better and better I can't wait for the next release!"
