Bay Rum Shaving Soap


Bay Rum Shaving Soap
54 Reviews |

Way back in the glory days of salty sea dogs, sailors used rum tinctures of West Indie bay and spices as disinfectants, fragrances, deodorants, and aftershaves. Over time, many famous fragrance and shaving houses adopted the custom and offered their own versions of the classic scent, which proved to be extremely popular with barbers as well.

Barrister and Mann® is proud to offer our own version of a classic Bay Rum. Dispensing with the modern custom of using large amounts of clove, we instead blend real black strap rum with West Indie bay, sweet orange, cinnamon, and benzoin (a vanilla-like resin). Our Bay Rum is a warm, masculine classic, a piece of history, and a favorite for winter, but is well-suited for any time of year.

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.

Fantastic Soap

This soap is easy to load and has excellent slickness. The scent is outstanding

A nice take on Bay Rum

I really like this take on the traditional bay rum scent. It's spicy, as one would expect, but also bit "syrupy" in scent; reminiscent of what I'd imagine boiled and condensed cola to smell like. It's refreshing and perfect for year-round use.

This is a very spicy scent. I’ve never used any other Bay Rum scents before but I can say I really like this version. I find myself smelling this soap from time to time as I do with my other B&M products whenever I use this and any other B&M scents/products I always get comments from my coworkers. Great job Barrister and Mann!



Least favorite line so far. Scent is very forward with Allspice. Think less bay rum and more pumpkin pie.

The brush is fine given that it's a plastic bristle, though I prefer a natural product by choice. The brown soap Lavanillie isn't my preference. I love the Seville line by far. As usual the order was promptly handled.
