Barrister and Mann Hallows Aftershave Splash
Description by Will Carius, Barrister and Mann:
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"
Hallows was our entry into the 2013 Sharpologist Scent-Off Competition. Built on the theme of "Death and Decay," only twenty pieces were offered for public sale, of which two were destroyed, making it one of the rarest soaps on Earth. At the time, it was impossible for us to make more as our cocoa absolute supplier had liquidated its entire stock and we were unable to find a replacement.
But, as they say, all good things to those who wait. We were finally able to locate a new supplier and proudly present a new batch of one of our favorite soaps of all time.
Taking inspiration from the swamps of Boston, we combined 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.
We blend all of our fragrances in house and by hand; we do not and never will use pre-blended fragrances for our soaps. Each batch of fragrance is individually blended for a specific batch of soap; we blend our fragrances each and every time to ensure the absolute highest quality.
Barrister & Mann proudly presents Hallows, now in Tonique form.
