Barrister and Mann

Shaving Product Review - Barrister and Mann "Cologne Russe"

A shave worthy of Russian nobility... Barrister and Mann Cologne Russe #soap and #aftershave! Wickedly complex, with notes of citrus, floral, spice and more.

Ever since I first smelled it, I knew Cologne Russe by #BarristerMann was something special. I'd suggest checking out my in-depth review of Cologne Russe for the full low-down. Suffice to say, it's not your typical scent. It's deep, complex, robust and has excellent longevity. Combined with the well-known performance of the soap and aftershave, what's not to love? The glissant formulation and new packaging of the soap are just the bees knees.

Hardware consisted of the #Mühle #R89 razor with a #Feather blade on shave two, with the #BSB Shaving Brush working the fine lather 'round the #GTP scuttle for an excellent shave. I do love the gentle shave that this razor provides but as a fan of true BBS shaves, it leaves me wanting more. So once this blade's done I'm going to get the #Futur back in rotation for a week.

This scent probably isn't for everyone, but if you're a fan of scents then you'll want to grab this one. It's uniqueness and complexity are a joy.
