Bay Rum Shaving Soap
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
One of my Favorite Scents
This was the first product I bought from Barrister and Mann several years ago and am revisiting the scent for the first time since then. I absolutely love the rum/cinnamon combination and the aftershave scent is even better than the soap. They should make a cologne out of this.
First off the soap base to no surprise is amazing. The scent is what is surprising, I've had bayrum products in the past from various places and this in my opinion is the best that I've tried. The cent is a classic bay cen but it has a creamy under tone to me and that set's it apart from it's competition. All of the scent notes have been blended very well, not a single stands out witch puts this bayrum up on top of the bay rum charts for me.
I really like this for a cool morning or evening shave. The scent is great as usual and the base is fantastic.
Excellent Bay Rum
I've been looking for a great bay rum and for me this fits the bill very nicely. I have the matching aftershave, love to use this setup in the summer (although it's great year round). This base also performs better than almost any soap around, so 5 stars for me.
The first soap smell I fell in love with years ago was Col. Conk's Bay Rum. I've come a long way since then and don't have a go to Bay Rum anymore. This is now it. Great performance as always and a nice scent that does justice to Bay Rum. My girlfriend loves having it in our bathroom because it's green and has a parrot haha.
