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.

Wow! What a Lather!

I'm only a few months into going all in on this traditional shaving thing so I'm still learning how to create the perfect later on a regular basis. My first experience lathering up B&M Seville was amazing! It lathered up easily and beautifully. This is my go to shaving soap now!

An excellent shave, but didn't "get" the scent -- until second shave.

This was my first shaving soap from Barrister & Mann, and I really liked the way it lathered up, and how good it felt as my razor glided along. (I used a Merkur 34c and a new Astra Platinum blade. No pre-shave oil.) It's obviously a high quality product. But unlike other reviewers, I don't think the scent is exceptional. [But, see later comment below.] It is pleasant, sophisticated and my wife likes it; and it doesn't call attention to itself. But after reading other users comments, I expected something more. The packaging and design are first rate, although I don't understand the connection to Seville, one of my favorite cities in Spain. [Later comment] The above comments were written after my first shave with B & M Seville soap. After that shave, I left the tube open on the sink to air dry before I put it away. The next time I opened it, I the scent was much more noticeable, in intensity and complexity. And when I loaded my brush and whipped it into a lather, the scent really bloomed. If anything, the lather was thicker, and more comfortable -- and this was with another Astra blade on its third shave! I'm a fan.

Barrister and Mann Seville Shaving Soap

I used to use Body Shop Shaving Soap, but when I wasn't able to get it I bought three tablets of Kell's Original Shaving Soap. The shaves were only so-so; each 2.6 oz tablet lasted an average of 65 days. I then found, at a deceased estate sale, a 3.5 oz tablet of L'Occitane Shaving Soap, still in its original wrapping, unused. Although made in France, the L'Occitane store is here in Denver. It produced excellent shaves, and lasted 206 days!.When I went to the store to get another tablet, I discovered that it was no longer available, and they now sold Cade Shaving Soap. When I looked at the reviews on line I learnt that the Cade has a different formula, and all the reviews were extremely unfavorable. So I bought four 2.6 oz tablets of Viking Revolution Shaving Soap. Its shaves were also only so-so, with each tablet lasting an average of 47 days. An online search indicated that I should try Barrister and Mann Shaving Soaps. I bought the 4oz Seville and Bay Rum varieties. I have tried the Seville for the last two mornings. I was surprised that it isn't a soap tablet but a thick paste. The container is only 1 5/16 inch high which means that soap would probably come over when I use my brush to whip up a lather. However, I had no problem using a spatula to get all the soap out of its container and into my shaving mug. The shave is every bit as good as the L'Occitane referred to above – even better as it seems to leave a smooth residue on the skin for the rest of the day. I will see how long each container lasts and let you know, using the average of the Seville and Bay Rum.
