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

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

Daily driver

Very interesting scent, the lime stands out to me in this one, but in a very subtle way. The Omnibus base is exquisite. Funny story, I had ordered LGC from Amazon, and the seller had shipped Lavonille. I mentioned it on Reddit twice. Not complaining, just disappointing. Will saw my comment and the first time asked if there was anything he could do. The second time he just DM'd me asking me for my address so he could send me the LGC, which he did. I love it. If you have not tried B&M soaps, do it now.

Great scent!

One of my faves, a little floral/fruit/ citrus, very well balanced. Best soap base on the market.

Shaving Soap

Generally I don’t like shaving soap; it just doesn't get a good lather for me. The B & M soap changed my mind, it has a great lather and smells good. I plan on using more in the future,

Seville on Steroids

I say that because they both have the same citrus-type backbone - almost like a cola - but LGC just has this amazing floral powdery slap in the face that I absolutely adore.

Really Enjoyable Shaves with this.

Nothing extra to report on the omnibus base, just fantastic. The scent is really great; hard to love it as much as Leviathan, but definitely will a regular in the rotation. As far as the notes, I can pick out some of the stated ones, but for some reason, I get an RC Cola vibe from it off the puck? Maybe I'm the only one, but it's definitely interesting and enjoyable.
