Bay Rum Shaving Soap


Bay Rum Shaving Soap
35 |

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.

Bay Rum is back

And we all missed it. This is the classic scent that got me to fall in love with B&M soaps, and totally abandon the garbage shaving cream-in-a-can I was using. One sniff of this stuff and I knew I had found a scent I could shave with all the time, and which would always bring a smile to my face. I was incredibly sad when the bay crop got wiped out by that hurricane, but elated when Will announced Bay Rum was coming back -- because it means that important export has recovered, AND because (more self-servingly) I can get my favorite :). You'll love the warming, soft, comfortable, spicy tones of Bay Rum if you've never tried it. Like Seville, this is kind of a classic barbershop kind of scent, but it's not overpowering. As this is B&M, you can expect the usual thirsty soap, generous lather, and spectacular shave. Welcome back, Bay Rum!

Very happy with this product

I've been very pleased with this soap. The scent is a very nice take on Bay Rum. The soap lathers very well and provides great protection and slickness. In my opinion the best quality is the post shave feel. My skin feels very hydrated and refreshed after using this soap. So much so I'd venture to say no aftershave product would be necessary. I would definitely recommend this product.
