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
The lather is amazing like most barrister and mann products. The slickness is great and the smell is great.
One of my favorite scents
I own all of the Barrister and Mann scents of the last 4 or so years. This isn't my absolute favorite but it is definitely in the top 10. It is very floral, sweet, and complex. I love it. I even emailed and begged for an EdT, haha.
Performance: It's what all soaps inspire to be. What could be better than the Excelsior base??? Scent: New, Original, It Will be wanted again for next fall.
Beautiful Fall Scent
This is a Beautiful Fall Scent, perfect for cooler weather. I’ve been reaching for this one regularly, and love pairing it with the matching Deltus Splash, well done!
Not often that I can say that everything I've purchased from a company exceeds expectations, however, in the case of shaving soaps and after shave from B&M I have yet to be disappointed! Once again they've sent out a winner! Clusterfig may have just become my favorite!
