The Scent
Notably amongst soap companies who cater to the shaving world, Barrister and Mann has been rather picky about producing tobacco fragrances. It's not that we don't like them; Will still tells stories of the wonderful, plummy aroma of a pack of Camel Turkish Blends that he once bought for a Halloween costume. Really, it's because there are just SO MANY interesting things to try that AREN'T tobacco, and we didn't really get to circle back round to it for awhile.

Whew. Glad we got that out of our system. Introducing The Full Measure of Man.

It was inspired by photos of richly appointed libraries, peppered with winged leather armchairs, a glass of fine whiskey, and the smell of aging teak and mahogany wafting from the shelves. Genteel and smooth, the fragrance combines notes of cured tobacco, sandalwood, Mousse de Saxe (whose inky tang suffuses the entire scent like a whispered promise), citrus, vanilla, resins, myrrh, and geranium. This is one of our best "classic" masculine fragrances ever, one to make you feel like enjoying a glass of aged brandy in a bespoke suit before a roaring fire. Simply put, it smells awesome, and so will you. Take advantage of that at your discretion.

The Balm

People have been asking us for ages why we don’t make an aftershave balm and, the truth is, we just hadn’t been able to come up with something that we really liked. Over the years, we’ve tried bunches of different formulas, refining the design over and over to produce something truly special: a balm that’s light, non-greasy, moisturizing, and very soothing.

After an unbelievable number of trials, Barrister and Mann® is proud to present our finished aftershave balm formula! Enriched with jojoba oil, kokum butter, hyaluronic acid, radish oil, allantoin, and a suite of botanicals to leave your skin feeling great, this balm is light and nourishing and will leave your skin feeling calm, soft, and supple all day long.

Offered in a low-waste, travel-friendly jar to help you get the most out of your purchase. No messy pumps or leftover product; just awesome skin-soothing goodness.

Great Scent

The full measure of man aftershave balm is a very potent scent. I’m a big fan.

The smell of a man

This not only smells amazing but it’s extremely soothing after a good shave.

First Balm

Use the splashes routinely, but this is my first balm. Scent is strong and lasts all day, and the balm base is incredible. Drastically reduces razor burn and leaves my skin feeling super soft.

Scent was disappointing

Typically, I love everything from B & M, but I say with a heavy heart that I was not thrilled by the balm. The scent lingers very pleasantly throughout the day, and isn't as bad after applying it, but it's just too sweet otherwise. Very syrupy smell. I was hoping it would have a similar smell to the hand and body soap, which is why I fell in love with it in the first place. I plan on ordering the splash to see if it's any different.

Scent of a man

It knocked me out of the water. According to my wife it leaves a trail of sexiness as i walk by. IM GOOD WITH THAT! So i immediately purchased a 2nd one!
