Hand & Body Soap: The Full Measure of Man
Whew. Glad we got that out of our system. Introducing The Full Measure of Man.It was inspired by photos of richly appointed libraries, peppered with winged leather armchairs, a glass of fine whiskey, and the smell of aging teak and mahogany wafting from the shelves. Genteel and smooth, the fragrance combines notes of cured tobacco, sandalwood, Mousse de Saxe (whose inky tang suffuses the entire scent like a whispered promise), citrus, vanilla, resins, myrrh, and geranium. This is one of our best "classic" masculine fragrances ever, one to make you feel like enjoying a glass of aged brandy in a bespoke suit before a roaring fire. Simply put, it smells awesome, and so will you. Take advantage of that at your discretion.

Sometimes there's nothing so comforting as good old-fashioned bar soap. Tyler Durden called it "the yardstick of civilization," and it has long been in the running for the most important medical development of all time. It's safe to say that we would not have made it nearly as far as a species were it not for the invention of soap in Sumeria thousands of years ago.
While we believe in simplicity, we know that many people do not care for soap made from animal fats. Thus, we're thrilled to debut our brand new vegetable bar soap, made with responsibly-sourced, certified-origin palm oil, pomace olive oil and avocado oil, moisturizing cupuaçu butter, and goat milk powder for a nourishing, moisturizing soap ideal for any time of year, but especially for the cooler, drier months.

This soap is fantastic. It lathers up really well and the scent lasts for hours. The scent is beautifully manages to be masculine without being overbearing. I have yet to be disappointed with any scent from Barrister and Mann. Full Measure of a Man is one of my top scents, especially with the soap. My only regret is not buying more bars!
Great soap. Meh scent.
I was really curious about this scent, and figured I'd either love it, or...not. It was a fragrant bar of "not." Positives: First time ordering from Barrister and Mann. Their shipping and tracking is outstanding. Their packaging is GREAT. The soap lathers and cleans really well. Negatives: The scent.* I think there's just too much going on here (like I said, I figured I'd love it or...not). The cured tobacco, sandalwood, Mousse de Saxe, citrus, vanilla, resins, myrrh, and geranium just produced an olfactory fight club that I didn't enjoy. One of the most bothersome things to me is that this was described as masculine, and I cannot agree with that at alllll. A deep whiff of this, and I'm transported to a garden where a grandmother is tending a huge plot of geraniums. And shes wearing the same denim shirt with the same brand of cigarettes in the pocket that shes been buying for years. Every now and then, you smell the leather from the saddle that she hasn't used in 20 years but won't sell, and just sits in her shed. Overall, not a smell I liked. *Look, scent is highly subjective. Clearly, other people liked it, and I knew I was taking a risk with this sort of scent combo. My experience on the whole was great. Just to be clear: this particular scent = boo. The company, and the product = great.
Love everything The Full Measure of Man
I love this scent. I use the shave soap, aftershave splash, shave balm, and bath soap. The bath soap smells great and really nourishes my skin. Barrister and Mann bath soap lasts longer for me than other bath soaps.
Great Soap and Scent
This is a great soap, leaves me feeling very clean and the scent lasts for a little while after getting out of the shower. The wood and tobacco compliment each other very nicely.
