Mélange Shaving Soap

Mélange is proudly offered in our new lanolin-free Omnibus base.

Arrakis. Dune. The only source of the most valuable substance in the known universe, the one that has the power to make or break an empire:

The Spice.

The fundamental force underlying Frank Herbert's famously influential and notoriously complex work Dune, the Spice Mélange, often known simply as "the spice," is a powerful psychoactive that makes space travel within the story possible. Without it, the mutated navigators of the Spacing Guild cannot predict the flight paths of interstellar starships, and flying blind in such a fashion is a good way to materialize from warp space inside the heart of a star.

In case you can't tell, we're huge fans of Dune at Barrister and Mann, so, in honor of both one of our favorite novels of all time as well as its recent cinematic adaptation, we wanted to create something truly special. Thus was born Mélange, our interpretation of the scent of the spice itself. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, bay, musk, and desert air blend to produce an intensely spicy, all-encompassing aroma that brings to mind remote deserts, underground cultures, and the rumblings of revolution.

Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Please note: While we have made every effort to reduce the allergen activity of Mélange, if you're very sensitive to cinnamon or other spices, we recommend picking up a sample from Maggard Razors (coming very shortly) before purchasing any full size products.

Also, please note that the unique composition of Mélange fragrance has made this soap slightly sticky in texture. We recommend lighter loading practices in general, and a synthetic brush if possible, for optimal 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.

We need the spice!

This is a fabulous, mysterious soap and scent! Great lather, nice shave, and I, for one, really get the feel of the Dune experience. I have seen the movie(s), read the books, and was very pleased with this scent, as well as the experience! PS I rarely give 5 star reviews; it's just me, not the Melange. Applies to the soap and the aftershave.

Smells Amazing and Shave quality is top notch!

Wow, Barrister and Mann has done it again with this new soap base! Its been a couple of years since I have purchased a new soap and I was incredibly impressed by just how slick and cushiony this shave soap was! The smell is incredible as well, like surfing the dunes of Arakkis. This new omnibus soap base is so great I am tempted to repurchase some of the other scents I have in this base!

Great Soap

The soap smells great and shaves well. The warning they have on their website is correct. This soap requires more water than others to lather properly, but it still shaves great.

Melange

Another great seasonal soap by B&M. Lathers as expected and provides a good, slick shave. I can see why Melange is so coveted. The strong cinnamon/spice smell is subtle once applied to face and provides a pleasant scent throughout the day.

Spice Must Flow!

This is definitely one of B&M's best. The scent is deep and the lather is very rich. This line of products is a Dune fans dream, from the really cool label to the packing stickers from the CHOAM corporation, you can tell a lot of thought went into this release. Mélange is now in my heavy rotation of shave soaps
