Barrister and Mann The Four Horsemen Plague Shaving Soap is one of the four newly released scents by Barrister and Mann, together with Death, Famine, and War.
"The 'Red Death' had long devastated the country. No pestilence had been ever so fatal or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal — the redness and the horror of blood." - Edgar Allan Poe, "The Masque of the Red Death"
Inspired by the herbal poultices commonly used by "physicians" during the greatest pestilences in human history, The Four Horsemen: Plague is the scent of botanical talismans and amulets, the pungent bouquet that suffused the infamous plague masks of the Black Death. We layered notes of thyme, sage, rosemary, lavender, and geranium over the core chypre of Death, itself a construct of citrus, resins, and moss, to produce a crisply floral scent that exhibits the tang of despair and the creeping miasma of doom, wrapped in the powdery, mossy design that characterizes the entire set. This is the aroma of oncoming suffering and a terrible contagion that spreads through communities without regard for age, wealth, or honor. The indiscriminate reaper, the Great Equalizer, Plague holds illimitable dominion over all.
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 (lots and lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.
