Chypres ("SHEEP-ruhs") are perhaps our favorite family of fragrances here at Barrister and Mann®. They have a long and storied history, going all the way back to megalomaniac and perfume tycoon François Coty, who created the family in 1917 (and promptly sparked a fragrance revolution).

Inspired by smells indigenous to the island nation of Cyprus, Le Grand Chypre ("Leh Grond SHEEP-ruh") combines notes of bergamot, lime, labdanum, oakmoss, and a touch of patchouli to produce an elegant, citrusy heart. We wrapped it in notes of peach, rose, frankincense, cedar, cinnamon, and other supporting smells to create an elegant, slightly fruity, freshly floral design perfectly suited to the refined shaver.

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.

Just the best!

Le Grand Chypre Shaving Soap is one of, if not the BEAT shaving soap I have ever used. I regularly rotate my shaving soaps and I include Le Grand Chypre with selections from Grooming Department and Tallow and Steel to name a couple of great producers. Every time I use my Le Grand Chypre Shaving SoapI am amazed at the creaminess and protection I get from B & M. Thanks!!

Elegant and excellent

I bought this for my boyfriend to complement the aftershave he already has. We both love it!! It smells so vibrant, fresh and earthy and it has a long lasting scent. We have both been getting into chypres both masculine and feminine, and this one is top notch. Highly recommend!

Same Great LGC!

The same great scent as Le Grand Chypre in the Glissant base, brought to the new Excelsior base! I really enjoy the performance of the Excelsior base. I also enjoy the Glissant, but I think I am more consistent with the Excelsior. So, I'm glad to have this wonderful scent on hand to use more often.

This is probably the best soap I've ever used. Love it!

Outstanding all around. If I could give it more stars I would. This is by far the slickest soap I’ve had the pleasure of using. I really do not know how they continue to improve on what was already a great product. I don’t think I need to say anymore. Just buy this stuff if you have an issue with it, it’s definitely you and not the soap.
