From Barrister and Mann

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.

    Amazing new base. I read another review that said that the new Excelsior base takes the best of best of all the other Barrister and Mann bases and combines them, to create a soap base that excels in all areas. The Excelsior base to me is a significant change and upgrade from an already amazing Reserve base. The lather comes fast and is slick but provides tons of protection. Amazing post shave feel. The scent is super complex and smells to me like eating a Christmas cookie, outside, by a tree, with just a hint of cranberry sweetness. Every time I shave with this stuff I get something different in terms of scents. If you are looking for a soap for winter/Christmas, look no further than this one, a must own for the season.

    The performance of the new base was fantastic as anticipated. The scent of the soap was quite complex. I can easily pick up the cranberry and balsam, but it has several layers as many of the B & M scents do and aside from this smelling festive, it was quite masculine! Almost a cologne type scent which I really enjoy. Surprised there is not more being said about this soap. I love it!

    B&M’s new Excelsior base is a step up from even the Reserve base, which I didn’t think was possible. This soap is much harder than previous bases, but lathers like crazy and delivers a thick lather with minimal effort. The scent is even better and I can’t keep my nose out of the jar! Reminiscent of the Reserve Classic scent, but with an undertone of cranberries and other green accords. Despite it being the holiday release, this scent fits for year round wear.
