Bay Rum Shaving Soap
Way back in the glory days of salty sea dogs, sailors used rum tinctures of West Indie bay and spices as disinfectants, fragrances, deodorants, and aftershaves. Over time, many famous fragrance and shaving houses adopted the custom and offered their own versions of the classic scent, which proved to be extremely popular with barbers as well.
Barrister and Mann® is proud to offer our own version of a classic Bay Rum. Dispensing with the modern custom of using large amounts of clove, we instead blend real black strap rum with West Indie bay, sweet orange, cinnamon, and benzoin (a vanilla-like resin). Our Bay Rum is a warm, masculine classic, a piece of history, and a favorite for winter, but is well-suited for any time of year.
Net wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA
Directions for Use
- Bay Rum
Excellent product as is all Barrister and Mann products that I have used. Outstanding lather, slick and creamy. Great post-shave skin feel from the omnibus base, one of the best in the market. Nice scent that is not overpowering. Definitely recommended if you like Bay Rum.
Did the mixer slip?
It's a great lathering, smooth shaving soap. That said, I've done my damnedest to find the rum and it's nowhere to be seen. You get a bare touch of island scents and then a Chuck Norris roundhouse to the face of Orange, Cinnamon, and clove. More Aunt Mable's fruitcake than Captain Morgan. It's nice! It's just not very rum. I'll wear the **** out of it come holiday season. In the words of my better half: "Smells good. Very Christmas-y"
This is the 5th time I’ve ordered this soap. I will get it again when this gets low.
One of the Best Bay Rums in the Business
Will got it right! Omnibus is incredible too
Bay Rum is a wonderful soap and the best soap version tried to date
As simple as Bay Rum is, few get it right, thank God for B&M
