Le Grand Chypre Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

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. 4 oz, Made in the USA

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 and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

My new favorite

I have been using B&M since the beginning and have stuck to the traditional ones for the most part. This one is a must try. This will be in my rotation for quite a while. Excellent science, rich lather, fantastic soap.

Wow, just wow.

This is one of the most complex and wonderful scents I've ever smelled for a shaving soap. The base is just amazing, really hard not to get a great shave with this soap.

Chypre Off The Old Block

I tried LGC for the first time when it was available in the pretty decent Glissant base. LGC I was a very fruity sweet scent - the newest version I bought, in Excelsior base, seems a bit less sweet with more citrus and incense presence. The peach and florals are still there, but just balanced a bit more with other scents. I like the "new" mix better, but this could just be due to poor memory of what the "old" version smelled like. A lovely and complex scent, what one would expect from the genius factory at B&M. What is unequivocally improved is the Excelsior base. This is one of the best performing shave soap bases available, and gives a more comfortable and protective shave than Glissant. Excelsior is a triumph of practical chemistry, and a showpiece as to how a world class brand can improve itself even further.

Scent and lather are great!

The scent is really unique and made me shave with 4 passes just to smell it again and again! Regarding the larger, at the beginning I was afraid that it will not make any lather and then it exploded in my bowl! Overall experience was outstanding starting from customer service, packaging, delivery, and the products experience.

Versatile spring and summer shave. Get the splash, too!

Superlative base - as is to be expected from the Excelsior formula. Scent is killer. Off the puck, was skeptical - did not seem masculine. Love citrus, but have not owned many classic chypres to compare against. Citrus and floral explosion - felt a little too sweet. Complex blend - it’s Barrister and Mann - makes sense. Lathered up, the scent calms down and blends perfectly when the citrus shines through to something perfectly balanced. The aftershave splash is a perfect compliment. Wear any season - but I think this one is a great spring and summer scent to pair with whatever fragrance you prefer. No spice, gentle masculine citrus and floral finish.
