Product Description

Barrister’s Reserve® Lavender is as smooth as lavender can get. Based on a beautiful aftershave from Wales, this is the scent described by famed perfume critic Luca Turin as “Summer wind made smell” and “the greatest lavender of all time.” We definitely agree.

  • Elegant, smooth lavender unlike anything you’ve smelled before.
  • Absolute hard water tolerance.
  • Incredibly creamy, dense lather
  • Superlative slickness
  • Excellent post-shave feel

Directions for Use – 

Wet your shaving brush well, then swirl it around the jar for about 25 swirls or until a rich, creamy lather is formed. Continue building the lather by adding water (lots of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Note: This soap is very soft and may be easy to overload. If the lather seems thin or glue-like, continue to add water until a dense, creamy lather forms.

    when i saw the word “Reserve” and read the reviews i thought it would be more like a luxury natural lavender scent kinda like Cade by Loccitane . unfortunately, the lavender scent on this soap smells like lavender scented floor disinfectant. not what i was hoping for. on the other hand, the performance is good. nice slickness and no dry skin on the post shave. one thing i found weird about this soap is that the lather wasnt fluffy like whipped cream.. it was more creamy and gummy kinda like wood glue fresh out of the bottle.. still good performance though..

    Fine and amazing scent. Lather makes easy. Great performance in regards to glide and protection whilst shaving. Post shave lasts incredible and for a long time.

    Warm/sweet/sexy/dark/strong lavender scent. My first and favorite lavender of any soap so far. Lather and performs like no other soap available. Post shave is incredible. Strong enough to smell throughout the day. AS smells exactly as the soap and it fantastic too

    First soap I have bought, smells great. Think it takes more water than other soaps from what I have read online but other than that works well!

    It’s a bad chemical smell. Weak, unpleasant lavender.

    Lavender & Rose

    I know there isn’t rose in the soap, I even mailed B&M to clarify. They told me every scent my nose does pick up comes from the diffrent facets of the lavender.
    And my nose picks up rose and lavender, floral bright and a touch feminin, but in a good way. Simply amazing.
    You might not get any rose, but that is what my nose tells me.

    Wow, wow, wow!
    A fantastic scent combined with THE best cushioning and glide I’ve had yet.
    Amazing performance in regards to cushioning and glide and protection
    whilst shaving.
    The scent is amazing an does linger for quite a while.
    I had no problems in getting a lather – left the brush to soak for a
    short while, gave it one shake, then 20 swirls in the jar and took my
    time and a few extra splashes of water to build a great lather an
    experience the quality of B&M.
    a huge nod to Maggards for their outstanding service to me here in the UK.
    Took less than a week to get here, combined with a special discount on
    overseas shipping and you’ve made a loyal customer of me. Thankyou

    Wonderfully potent lavender scent. Lingers after the shave which is nice as well. Lathers nicely and has given me some of my closest shaves to date.

    As to the scent: Absolutely the nicest lavender scent I have found, after sampling eight different lavender shaving soaps. For me, this one is the keeper. Soap performance is, of course, outstanding.
