Barrister and Mann Seville Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

4 items left

Everyone has a different idea of what a barbershop ought to smell like, but we tend to lean historically for this kind of stuff. Giovanni Maria Farina famously created the very first Eau de Cologne in the early 1700s, and it was an instant success. His formula was prized by the royal courts, and was so highly regarded that it's still in production today. As a result of this popularity, Eau de Cologne fragrances have been staples in European barbershops for well over a hundred years.

While we don't claim to be as gifted as Signor Farina, our Seville scent is definitely in a class all its own. Affectionately dubbed "God's barbershop" by some of our more poetic customers, Seville is a blend of lemon, bergamot, rosemary, lavender, patchouli, and oakmoss. The name comes from the famous opera The Barber of Seville, but the scent is at home anywhere. Give it a try; you won't be disappointed.

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 in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

    One of my favorites

    I have grown to really like this soap. It lathers up nicely but is not so thick that it clogs the razor. It has a very nice scent which nicely matches the Barrister and Mann Seville after shave that I especially like. This is a definite winner.


    Great product!

    All the reviews and the guys on YouTube shaving with Barrister and Mann seemed a little over the top with how good they all say this stuff is but this Seville soap is fantastic. I purchased this soap thinking yeah sure I'll try it but come on how much better can it actually be ...... Well Wow! It is actually very, good and yes it is the best soap I've used. Definitely will purchase more products from Barrister and Mann and by the way if something is offered on this site you be sure of quality.


    Love this scent, great lather, great shave...

    I am still a relative novice in wet shaving but this product was recommended by an expert. I tried it and was not disappointed. The lather is great for a comfortable shave but it's the scents that do it for me. Some men might not like the more flowering scent of this product but it is no where near over powering and my face continues to look, feel and smell great for hours. Many friends have commented that I look much younger than my forty-something self and I attribute it in part to this soap.
