Lavanille Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

The vanillin in Lavanille may cause it to discolor animal hair shaving brushes. Use of a dedicated brush or a synthetic-fiber shaving brush is recommended.

Some time ago, Barrister and Mann® had the extraordinary fortune to obtain a sample of the discontinued, leathery perfume base Mousse de Saxe. Armed with only this small sample and historical records of what went into the original, we set out to re-create the famous design by smell alone. After four months of research, formulation, reformulation, and constant refinement, we successfully rebuilt Mousse de Saxe into its original glory. It seemed only fitting that such an achievement should be used to create a soap inspired by some of the greatest masculine fragrances of all time.

We blend our version of Mousse de Saxe with lavender, vanilla, cedar, and the elegant musk Exaltolide to create a dark, leathery, elegant soap unlike anything seen for nearly a half century.

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.

Incredible rich delightful fragrance

This is easily my favorite shaving soap ever. It's got this rich warm fragrance that isn't too much of any one thing, not spicy or too obnoxiously sweet. It has a smooth vanilla and a kind of warm leathery lavendery mix that is a delight to catch a hint of through out the day.

Love this scent

The scent is just absolutely fantastic, vanilla done extremely well. A very masculine blend. We all know how well the base preforms, it's a tier one performer.

Amazing

I loved this scent. That leathery scent from the mousse de saxe comes through really strong, so if that's not your thing I'd skip this. I love it though. The other notes of vanilla and lavender are great undertones to the scent and really brings it all together. The scent lasts a good long while, even with just the shave soap. Since I didn't pick up the after shave I splash some unscented witch hazel on. I didn't want to alter the scent too much with a different scented after shave. I highly recommend this scent.
