Barrister and Mann Rhapsody Hand and Body Soap, 5.25oz - Limited Edition
In the mid-1980s, the House of Nicolaï released a beautiful, stately fragrance for men under the name "New York." Bright and citrusy, but with distinct floral and spicy elements, it soon became a favorite among men of wealth, power, and prestige. Patricia de Nicolaï herself, catapulted by the success of this and many other masterpieces bearing her signature, eventually became director of the Osmotheque, the world's scent archive. In the wake of her meteoric rise and continually prolific work for her House, many of her earlier creations, including New York, have been largely forgotten in favor of newer, shinier aquatics and dry, earthy vetiver/citrus creations.
But not everyone has forgotten them.
In the spirit of the title "New York," we decided to incorporate the scent of pear blossoms, which bloom in Central Park in the springtime and have a famously pungent odor, into a citrus/floral/spice structure to symbolize the beauty of Spring (when the snow finally melts). Because using only our pear blossom accord made the fragrance rather heavy, we decided to lighten it with the scents of apple and cherry blossoms, incorporating all three accords into a base of lemon, orange, orange flower, rose, bay, thyme, sandalwood, patchouli, musk, lavender, and vanilla.
The result was a clean, sweet, citrusy scent with a distinctly floral cast and a richly smooth base, perfect for still-chilly Spring mornings where it's hard to justify getting out of bed.
Sometimes there's nothing so comforting as good old-fashioned bar soap. Tyler Durden called it "the yardstick of civilization," and it has long been in the running for the most important medical development of all time. It's safe to say that we would not have made it nearly as far as a species were it not for the invention of soap in Sumeria thousands of years ago.
While we believe in simplicity, we know that many people do not care for soap made from animal fats. Thus, we're thrilled to debut our brand new vegetable bar soap, made with responsibly-sourced, certified-origin palm oil, pomace olive oil and avocado oil, moisturizing cupuaçu butter, and goat milk powder for a nourishing, moisturizing soap ideal for any time of year, but especially for the cooler, drier months.
Ingredients: Responsibly-Sourced Palm Oil, Aqua, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil Pomace, Sodium Hydroxide*, Avocado Oil, Glycerin, Castor Oil, Cupuaçu Butter, Sodium Lactate, Fragrance (Unless Unscented), Saccharide Isomerate, Goat Milk Powder.
