Bay Rum Shaving Soap
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
This is a great soap. Like all the other Barrister and Mann products, it performs amazingly, easy to lather, great cushion, superb slickness. I was a little nervous to try this soap and aftershave combination as almost all the Bay Rums I have tried burn my face for several hours, and turn the skin red. I have had no problems with any of their other products so I decided to buy this when I saw the email they had finally released it again. I received it yesterday and shaved with it this morning! I like the scent, a little bit different from Bay Rums I have tried in the past, I like this scent a lot. I also go no irritation, no redness, no burning. Great scent and great soap as is consistent in pretty much every product of theirs that I have tried thus far. I don't even bother buying samples of their products anymore, because I'm 99% sure that I will love them. Hats of to you all at Barrister and Mann once again!
First shaving soap!
Great scent! I bought this years ago as my first 'real' soap, and it was very gentle on my beginner tecniques. Gave me a great close shave every time. Five stars!
What a scent, what a shave
This was my first experience with Bay Rum, and I have to say it quickly became one of my favorite scents. The earthy undertones and citrus notes really pop, and match pretty much any time of year. Highly recommended
Light pleasing scent.
I love this bay rum, the performance is amazing. Some bay rums can be a little harsh, this is nice and smooth. Scent strength reminders me of fireside. I’m glad I got some before the hurricane upset the supply chain. I recommend you jump on this when it returns.
Flawless Bay Rum
At first whiff I was unsure of the scent coming from the puck. I know I am not a huge fan of cloves and allspice (which Byarum is very much like) but after my first shave with this bay rum soap, I was hooked. The scent is perfection. A creamy smooth bay rum, with notes of orange. It's SO **** GOOD. I've been opening the container all day and just smelling it. I can't wait until my next shave. I'm addicted to this scent. And of course the quality of the soap is 10/10. Cushion, slickness, post shave, scent, the whole 9 yards. This product is outstanding. If you like Bay Rum, buy this soap right now.
