Behold the Whatsis!
Scent Notes: Grapefruit, Rose, Childhood Memories (a sweet, sugar-cookie sort of scent)
Behold the Whatsis! is a limited edition release that will be made until April 11th, 2019. Please note that the soap uses our new Excelsior base.
Children’s authors, people like Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, and Beatrix Potter, set the tone for our entire lives. The books that we read as children become cornerstones of how we see the world, of our beliefs about right and wrong, and of how we treat others. Few could forget the lessons and lines of iconic works like The Lorax, and we pass such lessons on to our own children in an effort to give them the best for their own childhoods.
This year, for what would have been Dr. Seuss’s 104th birthday, Barrister and Mann is thrilled to present our tribute to these great authors, to the Eric Carles and Richard Scarrys and Maurice Sendaks of the world. Inspired by their stories and their lessons, Behold the Whatsis! is a sprightly, Spring-like blend of grapefruit, rose, and our own version of the smell of childhood memories, a combination of tangerines, sugar cookies, and dryer-warm blankets. Far from cloyingly sweet, Behold the Whatsis! elegantly and quietly hails back to what it’s like to be very small.
In further celebration of children’s literature, we will also be donating $1 per jar of soap and $2 per bottle of aftershave sold to the Children’s Literacy Initiative, a renowned non-profit that works with teachers to advance and improve early literacy in the United States.
Special thanks to Jennifer Davis and Wendy Guenther, who created their very own tributes to Dr. Seuss’s unique artistic style, and to the good doctor himself. There was no one on Earth who was youer than you.
