The vanillin in Lavanille may cause it to discolor animal hair shaving brushes. Use of a dedicated brush or a synthetic-fiber shaving brush is recommended.

Some time ago, Barrister and Mann® had the extraordinary fortune to obtain a sample of the discontinued, leathery perfume base Mousse de Saxe. Armed with only this small sample and historical records of what went into the original, we set out to re-create the famous design by smell alone. After four months of research, formulation, reformulation, and constant refinement, we successfully rebuilt Mousse de Saxe into its original glory. It seemed only fitting that such an achievement should be used to create a soap inspired by some of the greatest masculine fragrances of all time.

We blend our version of Mousse de Saxe with lavender, vanilla, cedar, and elegant musk to create a dark, leathery, elegant soap unlike anything seen for nearly a half century.

Net wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Directions for Use

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.

An elegant dark scent!

This is a musky, dark, vanillic, lavender scent. Was my first artisan shave soap ever, and was a memorable experience! Glad to say this is a nostalgic scent for me now, just beautiful all around.

Not Bad but Not My Bag

It's definitely a unique scent and appreciate it for what it is - very complex - but I guess the combo of vanilla and lavender just doesn't quite do it for me.

Lavanille Shave Soap

Lathers well and has good cushion and glide. To my weak olfactory sense, I rate the scent a 6 out of 10 which is in the very good range and worth buying.

7th time

This is the 7th time I’ve ordered this soap, and I will again when it gets low. That should say it all.
