Seville Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)
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
B&M’s new base is fantastic; I still love the Reserve base, but this is easy to load and creates pure luxury.
What else is there to say?
An excellent soap in all regards. Great lather—slick, cushioning, nourishing. Amazing fragrance. Too me the scent evokes a sun drenched summer morning shave.
A classic among artisan soaps
I love this soap in my rotation. I cannot find a better way to describe it as the aforementioned "barbershop of the gods". It is the Oak moss, powdery smell that draws me to it rather than the citrusy smell but it is a great all year-round scent. It pairs great with Lucky Tiger aftershave and toner or with the Seville splash. I own both and I love how they all combine. The Excelsior base is excellent, in my opinion a top tier soap up there with the best artisan soaps I tried. A welcome upgrade from the glissant base but in my mind still definitely below the Reserve base in terms of slickness and postshave feel. The extra cushion provided by excelsior does not make up for all the upside that Reserve offers. I wish I had been able to try the special release of Seville Reserve. Hopefully we will get to have the Barrister and Mann classics in Reserve to really enjoy the crème de la crème !
An improved performer on an instant classic
I liked glissant version of this soap and was very happy with the scent. When Reserve came out I was hooked on the performance of that base. Now that Seville is available in the Excelsior base my shave experience has been elevated again. The slickness and cushioning are amazing, and the post shave makes your skin feel conditioned and protected without a greasy feel. It is easily one of my favorite scents for year round use.
Top tier soap, elegant scent, great price
B&M could easily charge $25 for this soap and still sell it, really really happy with the soap base and the scent here. Excellent customer service, packaging was superb.
