Hallows Aftershave Splash
Please Note: Quantities of Hallows products are limited.
Away to the Dismal Swamp he speeds,
His path was rugged and sore,
Through tangled juniper, beds of reeds,
Through many a fen where the serpent feeds,
And man never trod before.
-Sir Thomas Moore, "The Lake of the Dismal Swamp"
A popular haunt for corpse harvesters in the nineteenth century, who emptied its graves to fuel the lectures and research of local medical schools, Boston's Copp's Hill Burying Ground has long been thought haunted by ghouls and vengeful spirits. The murderer John White Webster is said to rest here in an unmarked tomb, and the Lovecraftian tale "Pickman's Model" speculates that the place is a hive of undeath and rot, a gathering ground for restless souls and unrealized doom. There is a rumor that small children around Copp's Hill are still not allowed outside past dark.
Boston is a city of history, home to strange and often gruesome happenings. It was our first home and gave rise to many of our most famous creations. Fragrances of dark animus and warped design.
Fragrances like Hallows.
Taking inspiration from the swamps and churchyards of the city, we combine vetiver, oakmoss, black pepper, cocoa, labdanum, and cedar to produce a deep, cold scent suited to the chilly, bitter days of late October. Gloomy, rich, and perversely elegant, Hallows is a reminder of why men once feared the dark.

Directions for Use
A masculine fall scent
Hallows aftershave is the perfect companion to the soap. It will certainly do the job of an aftershave and sooth your freshly shaven face, but what's more is that it will also prolong the amazing scent that is Hallows. The best way to describe it is the smell that hits you while walking through a damp forest in the early hours, where wet leaves mix with the earth. It isn't unpleasant, but definitely unique and gets better the longer you have it on. As the day goes, it almost seems to brighten up to me, becoming more robust with subtle hints of what I would call cinnamon and yet still retains the initial complexity. I can see folks each smelling different aspects of this scent and loving it. This is certainly worth the wait and a fantastic addition to my growing collection of Barrister and Mann products.
Got this in the mail today with the soap and a few other things. This is a great scent, I think this is the better more sophisticated brother to Lavanille. I smell woodsmoke and hints of leaves(?) among other things that I am unable to name.
Slightly better scent then the soap
We all know the performance of b&m aftershaves is top tier. They leave you smelling great as well as leaving your skin soft and healthy. The scent on this one I found was slightly better than that of the soap. Still
As usual, all was great.
