Mélange Shaving Soap

Mélange is proudly offered in our new lanolin-free Omnibus base.

Arrakis. Dune. The only source of the most valuable substance in the known universe, the one that has the power to make or break an empire:

The Spice.

The fundamental force underlying Frank Herbert's famously influential and notoriously complex work Dune, the Spice Mélange, often known simply as "the spice," is a powerful psychoactive that makes space travel within the story possible. Without it, the mutated navigators of the Spacing Guild cannot predict the flight paths of interstellar starships, and flying blind in such a fashion is a good way to materialize from warp space inside the heart of a star.

In case you can't tell, we're huge fans of Dune at Barrister and Mann, so, in honor of both one of our favorite novels of all time as well as its recent cinematic adaptation, we wanted to create something truly special. Thus was born Mélange, our interpretation of the scent of the spice itself. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, bay, musk, and desert air blend to produce an intensely spicy, all-encompassing aroma that brings to mind remote deserts, underground cultures, and the rumblings of revolution.

Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Please note: While we have made every effort to reduce the allergen activity of Mélange, if you're very sensitive to cinnamon or other spices, we recommend picking up a sample from Maggard Razors (coming very shortly) before purchasing any full size products.

Also, please note that the unique composition of Mélange fragrance has made this soap slightly sticky in texture. We recommend lighter loading practices in general, and a synthetic brush if possible, for optimal use.

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.

The spice extends life, the spice expands consciousness, the spice is vital to space travel

Ok so I'm a fan of Dune and had heard good things about this soap so I decided to give it a try. I thought it lathered very well and was plenty slick. I'm relatively new to using a shaving brush but I didn't think this used more water than any other soap as some have commented. It's kind of hard to describe the scent, which becomes much more pronounced while whipping up a good lather and during application. It's earthy and reminiscent of cardamom, with hints of maybe nutmeg and cinnamon. The first time I used it, I shaved my head and my face so I used a good amount. When I came out of the bathroom my wife grabbed me and told me that I smelled delicious. I hope this soap will be a permanent part of their collection.

Spices in the Suq

If you’ve ever visited a spice market in the Middle East, this is the scent. The dominant element is cardamom with cinnamon filling in the gaps. A truly intoxicating scent, mélange will transport you to Dune. The omnibus base is outstanding. Thirstier than most soaps in my collection, but not overly so, it quickly lathers into a thick protective lather. The matching balm is excellent. It is soothing and leaves the skin supple.

I appreciate you, B&M.

As a huge sci-fi fan, I got ridiculously excited about 42 coming out. I couldn’t imagine what smell accompanied Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, but after smelling your product I couldn’t imagine it being anything else. With Mélange, it was exactly the same. The soap is perfect and embodies the subtle scent you’d imagine of Spice, and the art is beautiful. My only complaint would be the power of the aftershave. The accompanying fireballs were apt, being the dominant note from the aftershave. I have to use it frugally. I hope you keep the sci-fi themed scents coming to bring my favorite stories to life. Thank you, Rob
