Vespers Shaving Soap (Seasonal)
Vespers is a seasonal scent for Winter and will be phased out on March 1, 2019. Please note that it is being offered in our new Excelsior soap base!
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.
Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA
Will has done something special with this soap. Between the performance of the new Excelsior base and the scent, this soap is a must have! I’ve never experienced a slickness quite like this soap and the post shave is fantastic!
At first I thought, “nice - another holiday scent.” But this goes beyond your typical fir needles and spice (not that there’s anything wrong with that). You can easily wear it year-round, it’s that good. Very glad I popped for the EdT!
Smells like Christmas!
I love this stuff. The formula is fantastic and this scent reminds me of Christmas. There is a distinct evergreen tree note that is balanced with a bunch of other Christmas magic to smell awesome. It isn’t just an evergreen note though. Don’t picture Tommyboy and the car deodorizer, this is a sophisticated and complex scent that is amazing.
Great new base
The new excelsior base is great! Lathers up nicely and very slick. Vespers scent off the puck wasn't too pleasing to me, but once I lathered it it really opened up to the various scents notes.
So when I started wet shaving, I didn't know where to start really, tried a few brands and the happen to land on Barrister and Mann. The single dopest soap i have ever tried. And this, this is by far their best iteration of their already wonderful base. Such a slick shave and rich, firm lather. Zero irritation, and my face is smooth, hydrated, and still smells great, even after a full day on the heat and stank of the kitchen. I literally recommend B and M to all who shave. Sorry this is long, but I have yet to get to the scent yet. And it is amazing, perfect for winter and has a certain smells like home during the holiday season. Sweets, and spiced breads, Smokey, woody, with a hint of leathery musk. Dark and mysterious as much as it is bright, open and friendly. If I could give it six stars i would.
