Seville Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)


Seville Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

Everyone has a different idea of what a barbershop ought to smell like, but we tend to lean historically for this kind of stuff. Giovanni Maria Farina famously created the very first Eau de Cologne in the early 1700s, and it was an instant success. His formula was prized by the royal courts, and was so highly regarded that it's still in production today. As a result of this popularity, Eau de Cologne fragrances have been staples in European barbershops for well over a hundred years.

While we don't claim to be as gifted as Signor Farina, our Seville scent is definitely in a class all its own. Affectionately dubbed "God's barbershop" by some of our more poetic customers, Seville is a blend of lemon, bergamot, rosemary, lavender, patchouli, and oakmoss. The name comes from the famous opera The Barber of Seville, but the scent is at home anywhere. Give it a try; you won't be disappointed.

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.

Great daily driver

Great soap for every day use, made even better by the change to the new base. The scent can be paired with a number of barbershop type scent splashes. Also, with Seville, the price is lower making it a great budget priced soap with elite performance.

Great Starting Point to Get Into B&M

If you have read about B&M but don't know where to start, this is the perfect place. While other scents are very subject to personal taste, this one is a hit with everyone I have let smell it. I love Beaudelair and 42, they aren't everyday type scents. Seville is perfect because you know intuitively what the scent profile is like, and you are safe to just be blown away by the performance of the product. It's the perfect product for an everyday shave. If you've been thinking about B&M, but didn't know which product is for you, start with Seville. You won't be disappointed.

Seville soap review

Excellent soap and scent. The mix of the citrus and herbs is great on the nose. Soap lathers to a thick cream and a pleasure to use.
