Leviathan Shaving Soap (Excelsior)
Leviathan is a seasonal scent for Autumn and will be discontinued on December 31st.
Leviathan. The Biblical Serpent who will consume the world come the End of Days. Legend has it that he lives beneath the seas, awaiting his chance to devour all of Creation. Some sailors still speak his name in hushed tones and cross themselves to ward off his ancient, ravenous hunger.
In perfume, there is nothing more darkly ancient than leather. We discovered the formula for an archaic, forgotten Russian leather accord and blended it with notes of sandalwood, coffee, cedar, and musk to create a dark, feral scent well-suited to its namesake. Elemental and at times slightly unsettling, Leviathan is a scent to accompany you to the end of the world.

This is a solid product!
I purchased the soap and aftershave. If you are familiar with B&M you know that quality is second to none on both of these products. My review is on the scent. While it is very unique, and a super scent for fall and winter, it is not my favorite of B&M (lava molle holds that title). You need to love the smell of coffee (at least that’s the dominate note to me). Very earthy! I will enjoy every last drop none the less. 5 stars because scent is subjective. Quality is not!
Outstanding soap and AS
I have long been a fan of of the Leviathan scent and this iteration did not disappoint me. What makes Me even happier is that both the soap and aftershave are in the most current bases, so the performance is off-the-hook. The scent and performance are both fantastic and I’m looking forward to many fantastic shave from both the soap and the AS.
Leviathan - Soap and Aftershave
I've read a lot about Leviathan over the years and was excited to pick it up for a good, masculine scent heading into the fall and winter months. The soap's performance is excellent, as is all of the Excelsior base soaps that I've tried. Go into it with a wet brush - like many other B+M soaps, this base is thirsty. With enough water, the soap lathers into a slick cushion in no-time. The scent here is great - it's leathery with a slight hint of coffee. The best way to describe it is it's like walking into an old mansion's library, where the air is heavy with old leather and heirloom, wooden furniture. But maybe there's an old guy drinking coffee at his mahogany desk in the corner. That's Leviathan. The aftershave splash has a little more sweetness or coffee notes to it than the soap does, and the staying power is nice. I shave in the morning and still get wafts of leather around 2pm at my desk job. This will stay in my regular winter rotation. If you're looking for something similar to compare it to, I think Chiseled Face Groomatorium's "Sherlock" has a very similar profile to Leviathan, minus the coffee. Overall, this is a fantastic product from B+M.
Darkness and goodness all in one. New formula adds much comfort to a product I already loved.
An intriguing scent. I was hoping for something along the lines of Hallows, but Leviathan is more coffee-forward. I think the more I use it the more I'll like it
