Le Grand Chypre Aftershave Splash
Chypres ("SHEEP-ruhs") are perhaps our favorite family of fragrances here at Barrister and Mann®. They have a long and storied history, going all the way back to megalomaniac and perfume tycoon François Coty, who created the family in 1917 (and promptly sparked a fragrance revolution).
Inspired by smells indigenous to the island nation of Cyprus, Le Grand Chypre ("Leh Grond SHEEP-ruh") combines notes of bergamot, lime, labdanum, oakmoss, and a touch of patchouli to produce an elegant, citrusy heart. We wrapped it in notes of peach, rose, frankincense, cedar, cinnamon, and other supporting smells to create an elegant, slightly fruity, freshly floral design perfectly suited to the refined shaver.
Net Wt. 3.5 fl oz, Made in the USA
Directions for Use
Shake aftershave into your palms (we recommend an amount about the side of a quarter) and rub them together for 3 seconds. Rub your palms over your freshly shaven skin. There may be a mild sting upon initial application, but your face is about to look, feel, and smell awesome. We know you can handle it.

Just marvelous ...
I missed the release of LGC last year. So I didn't know what I was missing. Wow .... this scent is just so amazing. There's SO much going on in that bottle. Citrus, spice, danky resins, some oakmoss, a little delicate rose and peach ... I wish I had better words to use here. It's delicate, but assertive, definitely not feminine, but not a heavy "manly" scent. This is unlike anything you've ever smelled before gentlemen. This quite possibly could be my new favorite B&M scent, and of course, the performance (of the soap as well) is simply top notch, which is what we've come to expect from Will. A wonderful scent for summer and on into those Indian Summer fall evenings as well. This is a real winner. Bravo WIll!
Worth the wait!
Ah Le Grand Chypre! What an interesting scent... Floral and citrus, warming spices, and an incense note (frankincense FTW!) underneath it all. Not overwhelming or cloying by any stretch! As it drys down I get a scent that reminds of the days when I would iron my Dad's dress shirts with Niagara spray starch. Just that classic fresh linen scent... Really glorious stuff and the performance is flawless!
Great start. I am experiencing something I've not had before.
Barrister & Mann are known for their wonderful blends, locks, and unique perfumery. This is different than most all I've had the opportunity to experience so far, and that's a good thing. Much lighter fragrances, it seems to me, yet all come and go in their time very pleasantly. I received a very positive response from my significant other the very first time I've used this aftershave, soap, and EdT. ( If you knew my propensity to flit from one soap/aftershave/EdT to another nearly every day, you'd understand why a standout is unique even though I've been very pleased with most all of the selections I've made.) If you have the chance to acquire this aftershave, soap, and EdT I believe you too will feel well rewarded with your choice.
Le Grande Chypre - Le Grand Stuff!
A great set of products; shaving soap and after shave. Soap lathers very nicely, smells great. After shave is very nice as well. really nice!
Glad to see it is back! Great scent and perfect finish to the wonderful soap.
