Lavanille Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)
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.

My Favorite B&M Flavor In An Even Better Base!
This has the same great scent as the Glissant Lavanille I fell for initially. It's a manly, earthy, leather scent, accented by sophisticated lavender. While chocolate is not a note listed for the scent, the combination of notes has a sort of chocolate-like feeling to it. Maybe that's just because of the color of the soap. Just a hint of bitter and sweet that makes me think of chocolate. As much as I loved the Glissant version of this soap, I'm so much more in love with the Excelsior version. The soap builds on what the Glissant base did so well, yet raises the bar.
One of the Best
One of my all time favorite Scents. I can’t wait to pair this with a Deltus Lavanille Splash!
Surprisingly Great Scent
Wish they would come out with a EdT or other fragrance. One of my favorites. Warm scent that isn't overpowering. Think well oiled leather with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Sounds odd, but that's the best way to describe it. The lather is a light brown color, which is understandable from the ingredients. But it's not what I'm used to seeing. But still worth it.
Amazing stuff! Smells great and works great!
This scent has really grown on me since I got it in the glissant version. It's even more awesome in the Excelsior base. Great scent, lather, and performance.
