Shaving Soap Sample: Bay Rum
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.

Really nice, not the bay rum I’m used to but that’s not a bad thing
Christmas in a shaving soap
This is the absolute nicest bay rum scent ever. To me, it smells like the manliest Father Christmas you'd ever come across (even though I know it's not typically considered a Christmas scent). Warming, manly, citrusy, and attractive - we'll be buying more of this!
Bay Rum Sample
I like it. Has good scent and lather while shaving. Scent has a “cinnamon” oriented aroma. I like it better than Seville Sample, which I find boring. I like my Nordost Orange shaving soap best of all, Bay Rum next. All of these leave with a good shave feeling when done.
Bay rum shave soap
I had a good experience with this product. It smells amazing and works ok. I am new to using shave soaps and I have not been able to get a good lather with it. Other than that the product is great.
