Notably amongst soap companies who cater to the shaving world, Barrister and Mann has been rather picky about producing tobacco fragrances. It's not that we don't like them; Will still tells stories of the wonderful, plummy aroma of a pack of Camel Turkish Blends that he once bought for a Halloween costume. Really, it's because there are just SO MANY interesting things to try that AREN'T tobacco, and we didn't really get to circle back round to it for awhile.
Whew. Glad we got that out of our system. Introducing The Full Measure of Man.
It was inspired by photos of richly appointed libraries, peppered with winged leather armchairs, a glass of fine whiskey, and the smell of aging teak and mahogany wafting from the shelves. Genteel and smooth, the fragrance combines notes of cured tobacco, sandalwood, Mousse de Saxe (whose inky tang suffuses the entire scent like a whispered promise), citrus, vanilla, resins, myrrh, and geranium. This is one of our best "classic" masculine fragrances ever, one to make you feel like enjoying a glass of aged brandy in a bespoke suit before a roaring fire. Simply put, it smells awesome, and so will you. Take advantage of that at your discretion.

Net wt. 4 oz.

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.

Addicting scent and Unmatched performance

Performance of the soap is unmatched in the artisan game. This particular scent hits every note for me. smooth tobacco, hints of leather, slightly boozy, a little sweetness. Also my wife loves it. This is a winner!

Cloying IMO

I've enjoyed several Barrister & Mann soaps, going back to the Latha days. This one and the accompanying aftershave were not a pleasant surprise. The soap lathers and shaves well, but the scent is cloyingly sweet and fulsome, like a cheap vanilla pipe tobacco mixed with penetrating maple flavoring. My wife can't stand it, and that's the acid test. I'll stick with Seville, Cologne Russe, or Spice for everyday wet shaving.

This scent doesn't really seem reminiscent of the description. I was excited for it and would've been happy with it if it smelled like it was described or even as other people described it smelling like maple syrup. I'm not sure how to describe it but all it really reminds me of is dirty socks. Luckily the other two scents I ordered in my previous order were great so I'll definitely be using those instead of this.

Love it!

Excellent soap! Easy to lather; love the scent. Blooms really nicely as you build your lather..The scent strength is moderate and lingers in the background post shave for about half of the day for me. Performance is excellent with great cushioning and glide during the shave. Great post shave feel. This one is definitely a keeper for me.

Smells Like a Sweet, Rich Cigar

**** yeah, on this one. The scent is SO powerful and long-lasting. You gotta really own it. My wife hates it, but I don't care. It's for me, not her.
