Bay Rum Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

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 (lots and lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Excellent base

Great soap, this base is fantastic. Works well on my sensitive skin. The fragrance lasts a decent amount of time without being overpowering. This particular Bay Rum is very complex, just a little heavy on the clove for me. The lady and I aren't huge clove fans, but we are sensitive to this smell. If cloves don't bother you it's a great scent, don't hesitate to purchase.

Excellent soap

The bay rum smell is amazing and made me excited to try it out. It lathered up great and between the smell and how well it shaved, it made for a wonderful shaving experience. I will definitely be buying it again in the future! I would absolutely recommend it!

Great Bay Rum Scent

The new Excelsior base Bay Rum is a big improvement over the previous White Label version. The older soap was a good performer, but the new Excelsior version is an excellent performer. Quick to lather and the lather is extremely rich. Great shave and great post shave, Try the Excelsior products.

Favorite scent

I've been buying the Bay Rum and Seville for 7 years now. When I moved to a new city a few years ago, the original formula wasn't working as well for me, I believe it's the hard water. So I gave the Excelsior base a shot in my favorite scent, Bay Rum, and it's great. Glad to have it back in my life.

Great soap!

I bought my first shaving soap from Barrister and Mann years ago in this same scent. Just purchased a new one for old time's sake...it smells just as great and feels just as nice on the skin. Great product!
