Clusterfig Aftershave Splash (Deltus)
“To eat figs off the tree in the very early morning, when they have been barely touched by the sun, is one of the exquisite pleasures of the Mediterranean.”
― Elizabeth David, An Omelette and a Glass of Wine
Known the world over for its fresh, delicate, floral aroma and lushly succulent flavor, the fig is one of the great hand-me-downs of antiquity, a relic of our ancestors long considered one of life’s great delights. Despite its popularity in cuisine, fig has only recently entered the world of fragrance, with the first “true fig” (Diptyque's Philosykos, according to famed perfume critic Luca Turin) released in 1996. Several fig soaps have made it to market in recent years, but many of them tend to be sharp and tangy or rich and spicy, with little variation between. We at Barrister and Mann thought that it was high time to change that.
Clusterfig is a soft, evanescent blend of green fig, orange blossom, jasmine, amber (the old-school benzoin/labdanum/vanilla version), lemon, apple, and violet. Sweet and floral without being heavy, delicate without being overtly feminine, we consider it one of the best figs out there, and we’re very excited to bring it to you this Autumn. Clusterfig may be a bit of a different take on the cooler months, but that’s what makes it all the more special.

Fig, jasmine, vanilla – lovely!
About as floral an aftershave as B&M have put out – and it's a pleasure in these dark winter months.
Typical, awesome, B&M performance, with an unexpected great scent. Give it a shot. I think you'll like it!
Fresh & Clean
First, I'm really enjoying the Deltus base. For whatever reason, not as drying as previous aftershaves. These splashes still have the recognizable slight sting and tightening, but they also leave the skin moisturized and soft. I have sensitive skin, and this splash is tolerated extremely well. Second, this scent is addictive. Much like my review of the soap, this scent isn't necessarily fall-like. Instead I get a very clean, fresh, new scent. Hints of powder, with a touch of citrus, and the fig is in there as well. It reminds me of a new, spring morning. Certainly a top scent from B&M.
Great Aftershave in a Casual, Fun Scent!
Excellent splash to finish of your shave! The Deltus base really feels great on your skin. This matches the Clusterfig soap perfectly!
It goes well with ClusterFig soap
Don't worry about putting this aftershave on after a shave. It has less alcohol doesn't sting. Its good stuff.
