Some time ago, Barrister & Mann had the extraordinary fortune to obtain a sample of the discontinued, leathery perfume base Mousse de Saxe. Armed with only this small sample and historical records of what went into the original, they set out to re-create the famous design by smell alone. After four months of research, formulation, reformulation, and constant refinement, they successfully rebuilt Mousse de Saxe into its original glory. It seemed only fitting that such an achievement should be used to create a soap inspired by some of the greatest masculine fragrances of all time.
This fragrance uses Barrister & Mann's own version of Mousse de Saxe blended with lavender, vanilla, cedar, and the elegant musk Exaltolide to create a dark, leathery, elegant soap unlike anything seen for nearly a half century.
