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.

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.

My favorite so far

B&M soaps have by far provided the best shaves to date. I was never a big fan of shaving but since the covid our break I am now required to shave daily. This soap actually makes the experience enjoyable. This scent is wonderful

Le Grand Chypre Shaving Soap

I’ve tried dozens of shaving creams, gels, and soaps trying to find one that is high quality, natural, and protects my super-sensitive skin. Barrister & Mann delivered!!! Le Grand Chypre (Excelsior Base) lathers up thick, smells amazing, and let’s my razor glide effortlessly. The tub is a good size also; should last a couple of months at least. If you’re thinking about it, stop - just buy it and enjoy the experience!!!

Le Grand Chypre Soap

I've had the Seville soap for a little while, which I love, and I decided I wanted to try a different scent. Le Grand Chypre caught my eye. I went ahead and got it, and (no surprise) I love this one as well. Excellent lather and a great scent. I am officially down the rabbit hole, because I now feel the need to try all of them! I can't resist - time for samplers!!!

Love the lather

This soap lathers very easily, with all the slickness one could want. For me, loading from the container for a count of 15 clockwise and then 15 counterclockwise is more than enough for a 3 pass shave. This is my favorite of the regular offerings, and it’s worth picking up the matching aftershave splash.
