Product Description

Chypres (“SHEEP-ruhs”) are perhaps our favorite family of fragrances here at Barrister and Mann®. They have a long and storied history, going all the way back to megalomaniac and perfume tycoon François Coty, who created the family in 1917 (and promptly sparked a fragrance revolution).

Inspired by smells indigenous to the island nation of Cyprus, Le Grand Chypre (“Leh Grond SHEEP-ruh”) combines notes of bergamot, lime, labdanum, oakmoss, and a touch of patchouli to produce an elegant, citrusy heart. We wrapped it in notes of peach, rose, frankincense, cedar, cinnamon, and other supporting smells to create an elegant, slightly fruity, freshly floral design perfectly suited to the refined shaver.

Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Overall, Excelsior represents a significant upgrade over the performance of Glissant and will last considerably longer because it’s a much harder product. It produces lather similar to that of Barrister’s Reserve®, but does not exhibit the gooey, stringy characteristics of its softer cousin. Those who love the lather they get from Barrister’s Reserve® soaps but who find the soap difficult to work with will very likely enjoy the performance of Excelsior a great deal.

    This scent is so unique! Super complex yet well integrated! Unbelievably fresh and vibrant!
    …and the B&M Excelsior base performance is profoundly tip top in any crowd of soaps (and there are an abundance of great artisan soaps out there — and, of course, Maggard Rasors stocks the best of the best)!
    I have yet to use a better performing soap that Barrister & Mann Excelsior LGC!
    Not bound to or by any sort of seasonal affiliation!
    I could and absolutely DO see myself going for this one on a very frequent basis throughout the year and on the most special of occasions.

    This here is some advanced stuff. Youve really gotta go into B&M soaps with an open mind. Ive learned not to judge the smell off the puck, or against anything i know. You can read scemt reviews all day (i did) noone came close. Off the puck it smells…eh…..lathered tho it explodes, so many layers, i cant even begin to describe it for you. ..thisbis a trip you have to take yourself, and you should

    The great white shark of Artisan soaps! The more water you add, the better lather it gives. It is almost impossible to break down B&M’s lather!

    To ME, the best artisan soap.

    I’ve ordered many different samples from Maggard over the past year, and I think with this I’ve found a scent I will use for years to come. The soap lathers beautifully, providing a slick gliding shave. The scent is classy AF, and lingers all day. The entire day after my first shave with it I would find myself rubbing my hand across my face and taking in the smell, it was only the next morning that I found it diminished. I wouldn’t call it overbearing, but it holds it’s own as a dominate scent compared to other soaps and I don’t see the need to wear a cologne with this as to not have a competing scent.

    LGC is by far one of my absolute favorites from B&M. The scent and performance are truly wonderful.

    As for Maggard, I couldn’t be more pleased with Brad and his team. An outstanding outfit combined with one of the best service in the industry, places these folks far ahead of others. My sincere gratitude, folks!
