Lavanille Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

The vanillin in Lavanille may cause it to discolor animal hair shaving brushes. Use of a dedicated brush or a synthetic-fiber shaving brush is recommended.

Some time ago, Barrister and Mann® had the extraordinary fortune to obtain a sample of the discontinued, leathery perfume base Mousse de Saxe. Armed with only this small sample and historical records of what went into the original, we set out to re-create the famous design by smell alone. After four months of research, formulation, reformulation, and constant refinement, we successfully rebuilt Mousse de Saxe into its original glory. It seemed only fitting that such an achievement should be used to create a soap inspired by some of the greatest masculine fragrances of all time.

We blend our version of Mousse de Saxe with lavender, vanilla, cedar, and the elegant musk Exaltolide to create a dark, leathery, elegant soap unlike anything seen for nearly a half century.

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.

Vanilla and lavender never smelled so dark, but still remain pleasant.

Easy to lather soap that creates a superbly slick and creamy layer of protection on my face. The scent is a pleasant combination of vanilla and lavender but darkened a bit with an earthy-leathery background that makes this a warm but dark scent.

New Favorite!

Foamy! Aromatic! Vanilla without the ice-creamy connotations. A hint of mint. A whiff of seared brown sugar. Did I say foamy? Wow! It lathers up thick,creamy,and (get over it) light brown! I rotate my Barrister and Mann shaving soaps daily. I always look forward to Lavanille day!

Dark & Mysterious - You need this in your rotation.

This is fantastic shave soap; 5 stars at minimum! Probably my favorite B&M scent overall, yet not one for a daily driver (for me). This is special occasion scent. Romance, mystery, luxury, allure, smokey (but not in a gross cigarette way), and dead sexy. I feel like if Prince was a wetshaver, this would've been his soap. For me, it smells like a vanilla cupcake with smokey chocolate frosting. That admittedly sounds weird to have on a dude's face, but I swear to you, its awesome. I keep a Seville/Cologne Russe tag team as daily drivers, but the lineup would not be complete without the unique fragrant counterpoint that is Lavanille.

Great scent and lather

I love the historical scents and the idea of the finely dressed gentlemen of days gone by. This scent does not disappoint and I always get compliments when I use this. the lather is as always superb and the overall shave experience is spot one.
