Barrister's Reserve® Fern is based on a combination of oakmoss, lavender, and tonka, and is the ultimate classic men's scent. Originally derived from a legendary fragrance not made for 60 years, Fern is dapper in ways that never, ever go out of style.
  • The ultimate scent for the discerning gentleman, this is the one that started it all.
  • Incredibly creamy, dense lather
  • Superlative slickness
  • Excellent post-shave feel

Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Wet your shaving brush well, then swirl it around the jar for about 25 swirls or until a rich, creamy lather is formed. Continue building the lather by adding water (lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Note: This soap is very soft and may be easy to overload. If the lather seems thin or glue-like, continue to add water until a dense, creamy lather forms.

Smells great!

I love it. I had a free sample of it from a previous purchase, so that's all I needed to know I wanted it! Thabks for the military discount and the quality product.


This one surprised me!

As a standard for this soap base this a top notch performer. It has fantastic slickness and post face feel for sure! I was not sure i was going to appreciate this scent, but wow this one was pretty on point and I really ended up appreciating it. This soap base does have a learning curve and required a lot of water, but if you give it a few tries to dial it in, you will be very pleased with it!

Love the scent on this earthy soap.

I bought this soap recently along with the B&M Leviathan shave soap and aftershave. I really enjoy the scent of this soap, which to me is very earthy, foresty, and plant-like. It is unique among all of the shave soaps I own. I am not sure if I prefer the 'reserve' line over the classic B&M line just yet. I prefer the firmness of the B&M Leviathan soap over the relative softness of this soap, which causes this soap to be used much quicker.


Excellent Soap

This soap is fantastic. B&M has always been my #1 soap but I hadn’t tried the Reserve line. The scent on this is very fresh and green. It was subtle but there enough during the shave. Didn’t hang around long for me post shave but I use AS/EDTs so lingering scent doesn’t matter to me. The larger built up super quick and was very dense providing a slick, protective shave. The density of this lather reminded me of Declaration soaps but a little less thick which isn’t a bad thing. Overall, excellent product and if you’re a B&M fan it’s a no brainer. If you’re new to B&M or haven’t use any of Will’s products yet, then this is a definite keep. I have since ordered the whole line (though West Coast Shaving)
