Bay Rum Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

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

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 (lots and lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Favorite scent

I've been buying the Bay Rum and Seville for 7 years now. When I moved to a new city a few years ago, the original formula wasn't working as well for me, I believe it's the hard water. So I gave the Excelsior base a shot in my favorite scent, Bay Rum, and it's great. Glad to have it back in my life.

Great soap!

I bought my first shaving soap from Barrister and Mann years ago in this same scent. Just purchased a new one for old time's sake...it smells just as great and feels just as nice on the skin. Great product!

Best Bay Rum on the Market

This is the best of the best! The scent is divine and is a strength of 7 out of 10. As always, Barrister and Mann’s shaving soaps perform at the top of the crowd. The lather is thick and dense and the viscosity is so slick the razor just glides across my heavy stubble. Next to Rhapsody—please bring back this scent—this is my favorite of the Barrister and Mann soaps.

Best bay rum?

I certainly think it’s the best bay rum scent! The soap is an incredible performer. B&M is the champion of creamy, smooth, highly protective shave soap - it’s also highly forgiving for lazy latherers. Some soaps really require a shaver to dial-in the water ratio, or load a brush for a long time, or soak the soap while shaving, etc...not this soap! Whips up fast, easy to figure out
