Dickens, Revisited Shaving Soap (Seasonal)(Excelsior Base)
Dickens is a limited edition fragrance for the holiday season.
The original incarnation of Dickens was our very first holiday scent, and still one of our very favorites! But we felt that it needed a little bit of an update, so we toned down the sugar and reworked the cherry for something a little bit more grown-up, but still wonderfully cheerful and festive.
Patterned after one of Will's favorite holiday cookies, Dickens, Revisited combines notes of cherry, black pepper, nutmeg, cardamom, and lemon into a spicy, merry scent perfect for a shave before fighting hordes of shoppers or opening presents. Each package will include a copy of the recipe, too!
Net wt. 4 oz. Happy holidays!
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.
Barrister & Mann products are much more than just scents and products. They are experiences that evoke memory and emotion. This scent is warm and inviting. Coming in the front door from a Christmas snowfall. The fire is crackling, the house is decorated to the nines, cookies are baking in the oven, and then you get a slight whiff of warm cherry and spice in the air. Excelsior is Elite and unmatched in my opinion. You cannot go wrong with Barrister & Mann.
The base is my favorite base in all of wet shaving absolutely love it. This scent is so fun! Definitely get a cookie vibe out of it. When you buy this you also get the directions to make the cookies it's a win-win.
This is yet another great soap from Barrister and Mann. Performance is great as is to expected from the Excelsior base. The scent is great. Definitely smell the cherries first but as you lather, the other notes come out and it changes the smell in a great way. Will probably buy again next year if I need to. Already have so many wonderful products from this company. Keep them coming Will.
Dickens Revisited is the holidays in a shave!
The performance of the base is one of the best and lasts a long time. I love the scent and it reminds me of the light sweet and floral smells of the season. You won't regret getting this!
Updated = Sensational
The updates made to this soap are spot on. Last iterations were sweet - not a bad thing, but just sweet. They gave the impression that your face was a little sticky, if that makes sense. This year's version is a touch more mature. The cherry is definitely there, but the spices also come out. The spiciness replaces the sweetness this year, and the result is a perfect balance. Finally, I do get the lemon on the finish. This also adds a new layer that makes this a much more complex scent, and a better scent. Like all Excelsior bases, this soap performs wonders, Easy lather, thick lather, nourishing lather. What more could you want.
