Arguably one of the most famous blends of tea in the world, Earl Grey is believed to be named after Charles, the Second Earl Grey, and was first produced by Charlton & Co. of Jermyn St. in London around 1880. The tea is traditionally flavored with bergamot, a peppery relative of orange from Italy. Its distinctive scent had never been re-created in shaving soap until Barrister and Mann® decided to give it a go.

We blend American clary sage, bergamot, and small amounts of lavender and patchouli to create a very realistic interpretation of the smell of Earl Grey (the tea, not the man). It's our founder's favorite, and we think you'll love it too!

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

One of my favorite soaps

Seville was always my favorite Barrister & Mann shaving soap. But Cheshire is right up there with Seville. I don’t drink tea, so I don’t really know what Earl Grey tea smells like, but I’m told it smells similar. All I know is it has a nice lemony smell with some other earthy notes. And I like that the scent is subtle. My wife doesn’t like strong scents. It performs really well just like all B&M soaps. This is definitely a favorite.

Totally Worthy

I have been a fan of Barrister and Mann ever since I discovered the tribute Mr. Carius gave to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy about 3 or 4 years ago with his popular 42. Since then I have been a regular user of his many soaps including Barrister and Mann’s Classic line of soaps and aftershaves. The quandary I have every morning is which one will I shave with that day. Cheshire shaving soap by Barrister and Mann is one of my favorites after trying most of the other, soaps, gels and creams going on 50 years. I have no doubt you will be quite satisfied by putting this product in your rotation.

Cheshire Shaving Soap-Smooth

Cheshire is classic Barrister and Mann. Scent is unique and pleasant. The lather is rich and thick, with pleasing slickness. The soap itself stands up even in a ****** shower without becoming diluted. My favorite feature is that the soap yields a thick, glistening lather rather than one that is airy or insubstantial. That sets it apart - not only from national brands, but even other artisan brands. No wonder I have stuck with B&M since my first use.

Excellent as always

Excellent shave soap. I previously used Seville and loved that traditional barbershop scent but I love Cheshire so much more. I love the subtle Earl grey tea smell and it lathers up fantastically


Great Soap

I had bought this and I have been using it for around a month now. It has a nice complex scent to it, very royal smelling. As usual with barrister and man products it is easy to lather, very slick, and amazing smell. The post shave feel is moisturized and nourished skin. I feel like this is one of their most natural soaps in regaurds to smell and feel both during and post shave. As usual Barrister and Mann hit it out of the park with this one. I truly enjoy this company and their products.
