Clusterfig Shaving Soap (Excelsior)

+

Clusterfig is a seasonal scent for Autumn and will be discontinued on December 31st.

“To eat figs off the tree in the very early morning, when they have been barely touched by the sun, is one of the exquisite pleasures of the Mediterranean.”
― Elizabeth David, An Omelette and a Glass of Wine

Known the world over for its fresh, delicate, floral aroma and lushly succulent flavor, the fig is one of the great hand-me-downs of antiquity, a relic of our ancestors long considered one of life’s great delights. Despite its popularity in cuisine, fig has only recently entered the world of fragrance, with the first “true fig” (Diptyque's Philosykos, according to famed perfume critic Luca Turin) released in 1996. Several fig soaps have made it to market in recent years, but many of them tend to be sharp and tangy or rich and spicy, with little variation between. We at Barrister and Mann thought that it was high time to change that.

Clusterfig is a soft, evanescent blend of green fig, orange blossom, jasmine, amber (the old-school benzoin/labdanum/vanilla version), lemon, apple, and violet. Sweet and floral without being heavy, delicate without being overtly feminine, we consider it one of the best figs out there, and we’re very excited to bring it to you this Autumn. Clusterfig may be a bit of a different take on the cooler months, but that’s what makes it all the more special.

Net Wt. 4 oz

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 and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Super Shave Soap

This shave soap is fantastic. I like the quality of the scent and performance. The first scent note that I notice is the fig. Afterwards, I notice the lemon. The soap lathers easily and provides exceptional slickness.

Bright, Sweet, reminds me of another B&M profile but I don't remember which yet!

Worth adding to your collection. The fragrance profile is wonderfully floral and the soap base is just another demonstration Will is a wizard of the shaving products realm.

Underrated!

In my opinion, this is the most underrated B&M scent of 2019. Floral and pleasant, this is suitable for any time of the year or any occasion. While it might not jump out as front of mind when considering my favorites from B&M, the more I use Clusterfig, the more I love it. Performance - as with any Excelsior base soap - is fantastic.

Better than expected

I expected the typical, excellent, B&M performance. What I didn't expect was how much I'd like the scent. Another great product, all around, from B&M!

Excellent Soap and Scent!

The performance of this soap is excellent. It's everything the Excelsior base promises to be. The scent is strong, but lighter in tone than most of B&M's scents. I find it to be a great all around scent for just about any time of year. I could use it year round and not feel out of place. It's a little fruit, a little floral, but pretty gender-friendly. No one will think you are a manly man by your smell, but they won't think you're a girlie man, either!
