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

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

One of the best.

Amazing scent. Great lather. I am a big Bay Rum fan in general, and so far this company has made the absolute best scented one. Usually they are very heavy on the vanilla-y scent, but this just has the right mix of everything you could want.

Great scent for the fall or winter!

As expected from B&M. the quality of the soap is top notch. The scent is not overdone, but enough to wake up your senses. This is not a one-note soap, it is multilayered in the scent notes you get as you create and apply the lather. Be sure to use enough water to really develop that creamy lather!

Top Notch Bay Rum

I'm a Bay Rum freak and this is a beautiful and classic Bay Rum shaving soap. It's done in the typical, first class way that B&M does soaps. I also loved the new, modified soft heart base. Super creamy, protective, slick, and moisturizing. Will did a really nice job with this one!

Barrister& Mann Bay Rum

This shave soap (as well as Seville) are good enough for me to have ordered more recently. The average number of shaves per ounce is 19, which is about average. No shaving soaps available compare with L'Occitane which is no longer available, being replaced by Cade which is terrible. When L'Occitane was available it not only had excellent lather but gave 59 shaves per ounce, three times that of its competitors. It might be an idea if Will could find out L'Occitane's original formula. The firm is still around but has stopped making its original L'Occitane Shaving Soap. See https://www.loccitane.com/en-us

Great Bay Rum

Performance is top notch from Will’s products. This has a very spicy rummy scent. It’s great and masculine, love this stuff.
