Le Grand Chypre Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

Chypres ("SHEEP-ruhs") are perhaps our favorite family of fragrances here at Barrister and Mann®. They have a long and storied history, going all the way back to megalomaniac and perfume tycoon François Coty, who created the family in 1917 (and promptly sparked a fragrance revolution).

Inspired by smells indigenous to the island nation of Cyprus, Le Grand Chypre ("Leh Grond SHEEP-ruh") combines notes of bergamot, lime, labdanum, oakmoss, and a touch of patchouli to produce an elegant, citrusy heart. We wrapped it in notes of peach, rose, frankincense, cedar, cinnamon, and other supporting smells to create an elegant, slightly fruity, freshly floral design perfectly suited to the refined shaver.

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.

Great post shave

Le Grand Chypre has an amazing scent. I pick up a baby powder- lemon combination that is fantastic. The post shave is fantastic! You won’t regret the purchase.


Complex and wonderful

This offering from B&M like all their products, performs amazingly. It’s complex scent is a mix of citrus, flowers, and some woods or spices. It really does have a lot going on in a good way and each time I use it I feel like I discover something new. There’s not one smell that dominates and even though there is a floral element it’s by no means feminine. This is a MAN’S soap.


Complex and refined

One of my favorite scents. Great evolution. Lathers easily, and is slick enough for use with straight razors.

Great entry point into the world of Barrister and Mann

Excellent soap performance. Easy to get an excellent lather. The intriguing fragrance is simultaneously complex and familiar. Citrus and floral, old world and contemporary at the same time. Goes well with the matching after shave and EDT.

Pleasantly Appealing

I thought I would only like the "darker" scents but find myself being lured by some of the lighter fare. Just wonderful.
