Bay Rum Shaving Soap

24.99 Sale Save

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
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.

Exceptional Soap

I, like everyone else has a drawer full of razor blades which are unacceptable to use. I have been using this soap with those razor blades. The results are exceptional as I have been using up those blades which do not work with my skin. I am 75 with tissue paper skin and barbed wire whiskers. B&M also sent me a sample of the Lime which is a very nice scent without being too fruity.

Love the smell

This is by far the best Rum Bay scent I have come across. I am a big fan.

A fantastic Bay Rum

I am very picky when it comes to BR scents... Too often they are too clovey. One of the things I love about B+M, is how accurate their scent descriptions are! I took a gamble with theirs. While I can say theirs is by far my favorite thus far, I would have to say that it could use just a tad more clove to it just to bring down the over sweetness of the orange a couple of notches. Then, in my opinion, it would be the best BR scent profile!
