DON’T PANIC.The Streaming Consciousness of the Whale
Another thing that nobody made too much fuss about was that, against all probability, a sperm whale had suddenly been called into existence some miles above the surface of an alien planet. And since this is not a naturally tenable position for a whale, this innocent creature had very little time to come to terms with its identity as a whale before it had to come to terms with suddenly not being a whale any more.
"Ah! What's happening? Er, excuse me? Who am I? Why am I here? What's my purpose in life? What do I mean by, 'Who am I'? Calm down! Get a grip now! Oh, this is an interesting sensation. It's a sort of yawning, tingling sensation in my ... my ... Well, I better start finding names for things, so let's call it my stomach. So, a yawning, tingling sensation in my stomach. And that whistling, roaring sound? That can be wind. Perhaps I can find a better name for it later. Hey, what's this thing? Let's call it a tail! Yeah, tail. Hey, I can really thrash it about pretty good, can't I? Wow! Wow! Hey! Doesn't seem to achieve much, but I'll probably figure out what it's for later on. Oh, hey, this is really exciting! So much to find out about, so much to look forward to. I'm dizzy with anticipation. What's this thing suddenly coming towards me very fast? Very, very fast ... so big and flat and wide, it needs a big, wide-sounding word, like round ... round ... ground! That's it -- ground! I wonder if it will be friends with me?"Curiously, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was,
"Oh no, not again."

For Towel Day, the commemoration of Douglas Adams’ authorship of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Barrister and Mann presents our tribute to his brilliant work: 42, a soap that smells of petunias, ambergris, tea, and Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster (lemon sugar). Grab a copy of the Guide, a cup of tea, and your shaving brush; it’s going to be a hell of a ride.

I wish I bought more
This along with the other 42 line, was my first purchase with B&M. The scent is fantastic. The same thing as the shave soap, just longer lasting. I highly recommend picking it up when it comes back next year. I know I certainly will be.
Amazing. Shake it up. Apply, and then go eat at the restaurant at the end of the universe. Perfection
This is my first ever B&M soap and I actually just shaved with it today. The slickness on this soap is elite after you dial in the water with the soap. The scent is very good too I enjoy it. It’s an excellent summer soap. I am actually about to reapply my aftershave to keep smelling it. You smell the tea up front and then the lemon sugar. It reminds me of sitting outside in a garden of flowers with a warm cup of lemon tea next to me. Awesome Job!
Perfect compliment to the soap
B&M AS always feel great when paired with the soap. 42 is no exception. I am not sure if this is by design but the scent profile seems slightly different and add to the overall experience when using both. Almost like the soap provides a little more of one scent and the AS finishes it out. Anyway my skin always feels great and the scent is long lasting, great stuff.
B&M 42 Set
I ordered the complete set of soap, splash, and EdP when it was released last month. I'll start by saying that I'm not as refined as others so I'll just describe the scent like the simpleton that I am. Performance across the board was top shelf. Both the excelsior based soap and Deltus base splash are my favorite platforms. Shave was excellent, the splash soothed any remaining irritation and my face felt smooth and hydrated the rest of the day. As far as scent, it wasn't for me. It smelled a little bitter to me during the shave and immediately after but after a couple of hours it just smelled like patchouli essential oil to me which isn't my gig. I love the presentation of everything including the reference to one of the favorite books from my childhood but I'll keep going to my Fern scent until I find another B&M scent that tickles my fancy. 4 stars for the performance. Fifth one docked simply because the scent isn't for me.
