Barrister and Mann Paganini's Violin shaving soap is a limited-run 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 shaving soap, Barrister and Mann have composed a shaving soap with 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.

Directions

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.

    Best soap you make

    This is easily the best smelling and best overall soap made my Barrister & Mann. It needs to become a regular in the B&M line of shave soaps, not just a limited edition. I want to be able to buy it anytime. Because I will.
