Paganini's Violin Shaving Soap

Paganini's Violin will be made through March 31st, after which time it will be rotated out of production. Don't miss out!

Legends abound of the remarkable skill of Italian violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini, the greatest violinist of his time. He was so singularly talented that the story goes that he was playing a new composition at a nobleman's villa one evening, a piece commissioned by the nobleman to draw a pretty woman's affections. Paganini played beautifully, surrounded by admiring listeners, until one of the strings on the instrument snapped. Undaunted, Paganini continued to play without missing a note, and a second string snapped. He continued without interruption, to the amazement of everyone around him. Surely he could not continue? But then a third string snapped, and still Paganini continued to play, completing his performance on only the one remaining string on the violin. Awestruck, the listeners broke into thunderous applause, and the legend of Niccolò Paganini grew.

But in his later years, when asked by a biographer about the story, Paganini revealed the truth: the piece had been specifically written to be played on successively fewer strings, and it was Paganini himself who broke each one as he played, dazzling his audience in the process.

For Paganini's Violin, we have composed a fragrance built on multiple variations on a single note, all playing together into one unified, singular whole. The smell of clean skin after a hot shower, interlaced with fruity undercurrents and tea, Paganini's Violin is one of our most unusual experiments, and decidedly an in-house favorite. We know you'll love it too.

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.

This stuff is the best

It's a real shame this one is only going to be around until the end of March. It is probably my favorite scent. And I can't even help describe what it is to you. It's just fantastic.

Love B&M products, but…

I love Will’s shaving soaps and they have become my fail go-to. When Paganinis violin came out I was super excited to have a subtle, fresh smelling set that would be good for days when strong scents weren’t appropriate. When this set arrived its just not for me. Can’t get passed the scent to try it. Smells somewhere between damp baby powder and old lady… they have awesome products, just beware, this is a really odd scent.

Great stuff!

The scent is a bit leathery to me. It brings to mind sitting down to prepare for the day with a cup of black tea; catching the aroma wafting from the cup on the table in front of you. No cream. No sugar. No frills. The soap works to a creamy lather with excellent slickness. It's one of the best soap bases I've used.
