DON’T PANIC.

The Streaming Consciousness of the Whale
Another thing that nobody made too much fuss about was that, against all probability, a sperm whale had suddenly been called into existence some miles above the surface of an alien planet. And since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity as a whale before it had to come to terms with suddenly not being a whale any more.
"Ah! What's happening? Er, excuse me? Who am I? Why am I here? What's my purpose in life? What do I mean by, 'Who am I'? Calm down! Get a grip now! Oh, this is an interesting sensation. It's a sort of yawning, tingling sensation in my ... my ... Well, I better start finding names for things, so let's call it my stomach. So, a yawning, tingling sensation in my stomach. And that whistling, roaring sound? That can be wind. Perhaps I can find a better name for it later. Hey, what's this thing? Let's call it a tail! Yeah, tail. Hey, I can really thrash it about pretty good, can't I? Wow! Wow! Hey! Doesn't seem to achieve much, but I'll probably figure out what it's for later on. Oh, hey, this is really exciting! So much to find out about, so much to look forward to. I'm dizzy with anticipation. What's this thing suddenly coming towards me very fast? Very, very fast ... so big and flat and wide, it needs a big, wide-sounding word, like round ... round ... ground! That's it -- ground! I wonder if it will be friends with me?"
Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was,
"Oh no, not again."

(to see this scene in action, check it out on YouTube!)

For Towel Day, the commemoration of Douglas Adams’ authorship of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Barrister and Mann presents our tribute to his brilliant work: 42, a soap that smells of petunias, ambergris, tea, and Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster (lemon sugar). Grab a copy of the Guide, a cup of tea, and your shaving brush; it’s going to be a hell of a ride.

Net wt. 3.5 fl oz, Made in the USA

Shake aftershave into your palms (we recommend an amount about the side of a quarter) and rub them together for 3 seconds. Rub your palms over your freshly shaven skin. There may be a mild sting upon initial application, but your face is about to look, feel, and smell awesome. We know you can handle it.

“****’s Bells” - Marvin - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

If some higher universal species decided to smash earth to make way for a hyperspace by-pass - this is the scent I want to be wearing when they do it. This is a perfect blend of tea and masculine florals that really make up this sophisticated scent. Top notch after shave that assists in the post shave recovery. Loved it so much that I went ahead and got the matching shave soap. Well Done Will!

Nice Aftershave

I find this to be a fairly light and mostly fresh scent. It goes on with the citrus freshness, and the dry down brings a bit of the tea, and the ambergris note may have a bit of impact here since it definitely isn't tea alone. As usual for B&M, ingredients are great and feels nice on the skin.

Mixed up batch?

Although the smell is great, it smells exactly like my Le Grande Chypre. Not sure if I got a mixed up batch or bad batch of the two scents.

High Class Vogon

I got the soap and AS, and am so glad I did. This scent has the same kind of complexity in simplicity that Vietnamese food has: floral and lemony, balanced by the tea and a resinous earthiness reminiscent of some of the sweeter frankincense blends I've encountered. I can't stop smelling my hands after I put it on, and it's INCREDIBLY long-lasting; my wife just said she can still smell it on me and it's been about 20 hours. Who had any idea that a Vogon could be so classy? How improbable is it that Douglas Adams hid a great aftershave recipe in his writings? Will the ground be friends with me? I'm gonna buy more while I can, this is my favorite scent to date. And, of course, the soap performs very well, but we knew that.
