Bay Rum Shaving Soap


Bay Rum Shaving Soap
42 |

Way back in the glory days of salty sea dogs, sailors used rum tinctures of West Indie bay and spices as disinfectants, fragrances, deodorants, and aftershaves. Over time, many famous fragrance and shaving houses adopted the custom and offered their own versions of the classic scent, which proved to be extremely popular with barbers as well.

Barrister and Mann® is proud to offer our own version of a classic Bay Rum. Dispensing with the modern custom of using large amounts of clove, we instead blend real black strap rum with West Indie bay, sweet orange, cinnamon, and benzoin (a vanilla-like resin). Our Bay Rum is a warm, masculine classic, a piece of history, and a favorite for winter, but is well-suited for any time of year.

Net wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Wet your shaving brush well, then swirl it around the jar for roughly thirty seconds or until a rich, creamy lather is formed. Continue building the lather by adding water and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Interesting Take

The first soap smell I fell in love with years ago was Col. Conk's Bay Rum. I've come a long way since then and don't have a go to Bay Rum anymore. This is now it. Great performance as always and a nice scent that does justice to Bay Rum. My girlfriend loves having it in our bathroom because it's green and has a parrot haha.

Smooth Shaving

This shaving soap, like all from Barrister and Man, does a superb job of preparing the facial skin for the razor; which seems to glide over the skin. The fragrance is also good.

Awesome bay rum!

I wanted to reorder this soap last year but it was unavailable due to a shortage of one of the ingredients. I'm so happy it's back, this is my favorite!

The warmth

The performance of the shave is phenomenal as usual. Very slick and very forgiving on your blade. As far as the scent goes, I was expecting it smell a different way. The scent isn't bad, it just feels like it's missing something. I also do get a slight warm or stingy feeling after a shave. It's not really my style, but I'm not complaining. Overall a fantastic shaving soap!
