Notably amongst soap companies who cater to the shaving world, Barrister and Mann has been rather picky about producing tobacco fragrances. It's not that we don't like them; Will still tells stories of the wonderful, plummy aroma of a pack of Camel Turkish Blends that he once bought for a Halloween costume. Really, it's because there are just SO MANY interesting things to try that AREN'T tobacco, and we didn't really get to circle back round to it for awhile.
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.

Net wt. 4 oz., Made in USA

Another great shaving soap

Great performing shaving soap - and the scent is manly & earthy. It's not my absolute fave, but it's a unique and well-crafted scent. I have no regrets about purchasing this. Thanks for another great shaving soap, Barrister & Mann!

Full Measure of Man

I have purchased Full Measure of Man products twice now. The soap and aftershave have quickly become one of my favorite scents in the Barrister and Mann lineup and I'm very happy that it is still carried.

Full Measure of a Man -- Perfect

I hope they never stop making this shaving soap. In the jar, it doesn't smell like much. Once it is lathered, a lot of things start happening. My old leather chair in my study seems to call, along with a glass of top tier bourbon that has vanilla notes. There is tobacco, but not the stinky cigarette or cigar kind. This is the sweet tobacco smell of the plants hung in the barn to cure before shipping to the factories. There are other things happening, maybe a hint of cinnamon from Sri Lanka? This is a wonderful smelling soap and the scent lasted from my shave in the morning until I showered in the evening. The performance was there, too, as is expected from Barrister and Mann. I use a straight razor and that makes a lot of demands on a soap. No worries with Barrister and Mann. To sum this up, this is a very manly smelling shaving soap that is unforgettable. It has the performance to stand up to any kind of a razor, too.

Great tobacco scented soap

What a nice, warm tobacco scent! I love the performance of the omnibus soap base, the scent of this soap is great.
