Just received notice of two new soaps from Barrister and Mann. Nocturne Shaving Soap (Essential Oil + Fragrance Oil) Last year's seasonal scent, Nocturne was originally intended to smell like a New England Harvest Festival, but its combination of apples, fallen leaves, cinnamon, benzoin (think woody vanilla) and woodsmoke really more closely resembles a good old-fashioned cider mill. Leviathan Shaving Soap (Fragrance Oil) Leviathan is our new Autumn fragrance. We discovered a forgotten formula for an old Russian leather accord and have blended it with notes of sandalwood, coffee, cedar, and musk to create an elegant, rich, and slightly feral scent well-suited to its namesake. This is one of those elemental scents that smells like it has endured for eons.
