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.

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 of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and prepare the rite.

My first soap from Barrister and Mann, and it was excellent. Hallows has an amazing scent that perfectly fits its description. I've since bought 3 more soaps and 2 aftershaves and they are all fantastic products.

B&M nailed it on this soap witch makes it so scary ( no pun intended). I love Hallows this is my second go around with it, this new blend is awesome, not that my other B&M soaps aren't great.the cedar an cocoa really stand out to me, it's a great woodsy secnt. I really enjoy the new formula, leaves your face smooth an refreshed. I believe Hallows should be in every shaving den, pick one up an you'll see what I mean. Great job Will

Hallows is a very good soap, lathers well and smells great. My only gripe is, at least to me, it's not a scent meant for just any shave. I break it out two or three times a year, definitely not a daily shaver despite its quality.

A cold scent experience full of memory

As with all B&M seasonal and limited release soaps (and AS) I have had the pleasure of trying Hallows arouses many emotions and memories. It might not be for everyone and if you're looking for a safe and familiar shaving scent this may not be what you're looking for, but if you are lookimg for something to stir your senses and add some variety to your shaving experience I would highly recommend Hallows. It is a "cold" scent but not in the OMG WE'VE PUT SO MUCH MENTHOL IN HERE YOU'D HAVE TO BE A ********* TO USE IT sense. Think dark, damp, and decaying. Contrary to what the fantastically designed label may lead you to think it's not the smell of decaying flesh but more akin to the smell of damp, decaying leaves on a chilly fall day. The soap loads and lathers easily and gives fantastic cushion and glide. The scent washes away with the post shave rinse but when used with the matching B&M Hallows aftershave it will extend your scent experience a bit and your face will thank you for the amazing nourishing ingredients. I can normally catch a hint of the AS scent periodically for up to 12-18 hours later, although very faintly (YMMV as the saying goes). If you view shaving as an unavoidable chore and are looking for something more standard, well B&M makes some of that too (check out the "Classics" with the same amazing performance and nourishing "face food" ingredients), but if like many others you have come to find the benefit in wet shaving of a routine that forces you to slow down, gather your thoughts, and reminisce then I highly recommend Hallows.

Love Hallows

The 2016 edition of Hallows to me is very nostalgic. I love the depth and sweetness of the cocoa, the subtlety of the vetiver, the oakmoss is nice, it's a great experience, the glissant base is so wonderful, I'd buy it even unscented. The Hallows aftershave I later purchased in Pasteur's, I was amazed at how the scent stays around, I would love to see it in a non- alcohol balm in the future. Will is a genius for having created this soap. I love it. And the packaging is top of the line, black container and skull label. This is my favorite label so far out of the Hallows line.
