Barrister and Mann Mélange Artisan Shaving Soap - Seasonal Release

We currently have 25 in stock.

Mélange is proudly offered in our new lanolin-free Omnibus base.

Arrakis. Dune. The only source of the most valuable substance in the known universe, the one that has the power to make or break an empire:

The Spice.

The fundamental force underlying Frank Herbert's famously influential and notoriously complex work Dune, the Spice Mélange, often known simply as "the spice," is a powerful psychoactive that makes space travel within the story possible. Without it, the mutated navigators of the Spacing Guild cannot predict the flight paths of interstellar starships, and flying blind in such a fashion is a good way to materialize from warp space inside the heart of a star.

In case you can't tell, we're huge fans of Dune at Barrister and Mann, so, in honor of both one of our favorite novels of all time as well as its recent cinematic adaptation, we wanted to create something truly special. Thus was born Mélange, our interpretation of the scent of the spice itself. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, bay, musk, and desert air blend to produce an intensely spicy, all-encompassing aroma that brings to mind remote deserts, underground cultures, and the rumblings of revolution.

Net Wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Please note: While we have made every effort to reduce the allergen activity of Mélange, if you're very sensitive to cinnamon or other spices, we recommend picking up a sample from Maggard Razors before purchasing any full size products.

Also, please note that the unique composition of Mélange fragrance has made this soap slightly sticky in texture. We recommend lighter loading practices in general, and a synthetic brush if possible, for optimal use.

mind altering

Bought as a blind buy and didnt know what to expect. Upon using it, my mind tapped into an alternate state of mind, I became aware of everything and everyone. As I whipped up the later, I became one with the cosmos, I saw things that had been, things there are and things that have yet to happen. I became everyone and everything, my mind was attuned, my body at one with the earth. I am now addicted to this soap. I dont know if the change in eye colour to blue is correlated though

Good soap

The aroma on this is pretty good. It smells as described, but there is something distinctly fall about this smell that I can't quite place. It fits both the movie tie in, and the current season somehow. I just can't place it for some reason. Maybe it will come to me later, but it just feels fall. I was a little worried about the description regarding working a lather and this soap being sticky. I've gone a little light on the application, and by that I mean backed off slightly from what I normally do, and it was able to perform just fine. My expectation at time of purchase that I'd be trading off usability for an intriguing aroma was unfounded. It both smells good and performs well. This is something I'm glad that I purchased, and would revisit next year if it becomes a regular seasonal item.
