The Scent

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.

The Soap

Sometimes there's nothing so comforting as good old-fashioned bar soap. Tyler Durden called it "the yardstick of civilization," and it has long been in the running for the most important medical development of all time. It's safe to say that we would not have made it nearly as far as a species were it not for the invention of soap in Sumeria thousands of years ago.

While we believe in simplicity, we know that many people do not care for soap made from animal fats. Thus, we're thrilled to debut our brand new vegetable bar soap, made with responsibly-sourced, certified-origin palm oil, pomace olive oil and avocado oil, moisturizing cupuaçu butter, and goat milk powder for a nourishing, moisturizing soap ideal for any time of year, but especially for the cooler, drier months.

Net Wt. 5.25 oz, Made in USA


Responsibly-Sourced Palm Oil, Aqua, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil Pomace, Sodium Hydroxide*, Avocado Oil, Glycerin, Castor Oil, Cupuaçu Butter, Sodium Lactate, Fragrance (Unless Unscented), Saccharide Isomerate, Goat Milk Powder

*None remains in final product

Great soap

I heard about this product through TDD podcast and I especially enjoyed the bay rum soap. I ordered some additional products for my dad's birthday as well.

Awesome bay

One of my favorite bay rum scents. Not overly clove forward as others I have used. Perfect summer soap for me.

Great smell and doesn't dry out my skin!

I use this specifically for my body & it's great. Smells awesome & It doesn't dehydrate my skin after. My favorite scent is from Wet Shaving Products Blackbeard, but they don't offer it in a soap. This is right next to it in terms of my alternative go to now! I wonder what this would smell like with a touch of peppermint or touch of menthol to it. Not too much though!

Great Soap

I've been using Barrister and Mann shave soaps for awhile and bought some bar soaps after trying Dr Squatch. The price is great for a hand crafted product and it doesn't seem to melt away in the shower like the other soap I tried. The scent is great and goes well with the Bay Rum Shave soap! I'll be purchasing more for sure!
