    This is definitely more approachable than Chiseled Face Cryogen, not nearly as extreme, but I definitely enjoyed a long lasting freeze feel. I think it’s a cold soap just about everyone can enjoy with no tearing up from the off gassing menthol. Skip the samples. Buy the full size jar and also buy the aftershave. This stuff is great!

    I’m not sure where the “It’s not cold” reviews are coming from. Maybe
    a bad batch or something. This isn’t overwhelming, but is basically in
    line with The Holy Black’s creepers. Pleasant masculine scent and a
    vary cold shave. The splash lingers all day. Seems to be reactivated
    with sweat.
    As for protection and post-shave feel, it’s excelsior based, so it’s
    up there in my top 3.

    Echoing another review, this is not a face freezer. I’d almost have to say this is a bit of false advertising. Cyrogen and Snake Bite are a much more frosty shave than this. Nice fragrance and feel, but definitely disappointing and now feel somewhat jaded by B&M.

    Scent off the puck: “aquatic peppermint.” Very good, actually. Scent seems to get stronger as the shave gets colder.

    Performance: Excelsior. One of my favorite soaps, now in a cooling formula. If you like a cooling sensation but don’t like eye watering menthol fumes, this one sneaks up on you. First pass is cool but you suspect it’s only the peppermint. Second pass is downright cold. After that it’s frigid, as your skin feels the cooling of the soap without hairs to soften the impact. The rest of the shave is Barrister and Mann. I’ve enjoyed all of Will’s soaps. The White Label soaps were my favorites but this stuff may have it beat.

    My five stars is both for the excellent soap performance, and the unique blend of scent and cooling agents to give you a frigid shave. Very nice indeed.

    To be perfectly clear, Barrister and Mann is a top-performing soap. Every single one is a clear and definite winner. I would easily rank it as one of the top-three in my stable. Every other B&M soap I have easily and effortlessly gets five stars. I am knocking a star off of this one because I was promised a face-freezing shave, akin to the soap version of Fine’s Snake Bite. That’s not what I got. Instead, I got a shave with a freeze lighter than Aqua Velva. It was a great shave, it was close and comfortable, but I could have gotten the same result by using cold water. It had a light, pleasant peppermint fragrance, but not the freeze of menthol. It was weird: it smelled like it should have been cold, but it wasn’t. It smelled pleasant, but it didn’t make my teeth chatter. This will definitely get a spot in my stable, but not for its (nonexistent) freeze.
