Barrister and Mann
Barrister and Mann Hallows shaving soap
Away to the Dismal Swamp he speeds,
His path was rugged and sore,
Through tangled juniper, beds of reeds,
Through many a fen where the serpent feeds,
And man never trod before.
-Sir Thomas Moore, "The Lake of the Dismal Swamp"
A popular haunt for corpse harvesters in the nineteenth century, who emptied its graves to fuel the lectures and research of local medical schools, Boston's Copp's Hill Burying Ground has long been thought haunted by ghouls and vengeful spirits. The murderer John White Webster is said to rest here in an unmarked tomb, and the Lovecraftian tale "Pickman's Model" speculates that the place is a hive of undeath and rot, a gathering ground for restless souls and unrealized doom. There is a rumor that small children around Copp's Hill are still not allowed outside past dark.
Boston is a city of history, home to strange and often gruesome happenings. It was our first home and gave rise to many of our most famous creations. Fragrances of dark animus and warped design.
Fragrances like Hallows.
Taking inspiration from the swamps and churchyards of the city, we combine vetiver, oakmoss, black pepper, cocoa, labdanum, and cedar to produce a deep, cold scent suited to the chilly, bitter days of late October. Gloomy, rich, and perversely elegant, Hallows is a reminder of why men once feared the dark.

All'inizio il profumo è molto simile a La Vanille sempre si Barrister, ma Una volta iniziato a montarlo si "apre" diventando più terroso. Per quanto riguarda la qualità del sapone e un gradino superiore agli altri classici Barrister and Mann.
Sapone dalla profumazione molto buona ed elegante.
La base omnibus di Barrister & Mann secondo me è una delle migliori in circolazione, protezione e post rasatura eccezionali.
B+M Omnibus is beyond all doubt one of the best soap bases there are. My personal favorite. The scent is hard to describe, layered and complex. I get a leathery note with a touch of coffee and mud. Sometimes it reminds me a bit of Stirlings British Leather, but much more refined and subtle. A wonderful soap. Recommendable.
I’ve really liked this scent, the way it opens and evolves, it’s not an easy or obvious scent, makes you wonder…
The base is one of my favorite to use!
