Vespers is a seasonal scent for the holidays and is slightly darker in color this year because we increased the fragrance strength.

Every year, the Christmas Market of Goslar, Germany opens in late November to international acclaim. Arguably the most famous Christmas Market in the world, the idyllic setting and beautiful forest of lit fir trees have captured the imaginations of artists and dreamers alike for hundreds of years.

Barrister and Mann is proud to be among them.

Vespers is the product of a specific picture, the image of a quaint mountain town in late December, snow falling gently on the peaked roofs, lights twinkling in the square. As one of the historic meeting places of Lower Saxony, we felt it necessary to incorporate our legendary version of Mousse de Saxe ("Saxon Moss"), in all its velvety darkness, into any fragrance representative of the village. Onto this we layered cranberry, cardamom, balsam, and a fern accord for a spicy-jammy-forest character. Patchouli, rose, sandalwood, and bergamot round out the rough edges to produce a scent one might expect to waft from a merrymaking hall on a chill evening. Vespers is the ultimate comfort scent for the dark months and we're very excited to release it this winter.

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.

Bought the trio. As expected, the soap performed superbly. The fragrance is fantastic and hits the nail on the head with regard to the theme (quaint mountain town in late December, snow falling gently on the peaked roofs, lights twinkling in the square.) Thanks again for another great product!

A must have.

Boy oh boy is this scent good. It's very hard for me to explain it's just awesome. The soap base is for me the best I have tried. This is a huge recommend from me.

I bought the whole set, and I'm really glad I did. Not only does Vespers smell great, but I get to have that scent all day.

Vesperoni Calzoni

If I had a candy cane at my head, and I was forced to say what’s the best Christmas scent and if I was wrong, I got whacked with that candy cane, what scent would I pick?? Leviathan of course. No I’m kidding, Vespers. This stuff is surprisingly sweet but Fougere like, spicy but not cloying. Great scent! Would buy again and again and again and...

The Winter Beaudelaire!

Great performance from B&M's newest REALLY great! If you like the smells of the holiday season, or Mousse de Saxe, or are in for a treat! Like it says in the title of this review, Vespers seems to be the cold season cousin to another great product from B&M, Beaudelaire.
