B&M Barrister’s Reserve: Classic Splash

image

    Upcoming from Barrister and Mann is his new line, Barrister’s Reserve. I was lucky enough to receive some tester packs from Will (more on that in a moment), so I’ll give my two cents on this splash.
    Will’s new addition is a standalone fragrance, designed to accommodate any soap or aftershave scent. With notes of “Grapefruit Zest, Mandarin Peel, Fresh Lavender, Dewy Moss, Patchouli Leaf, Sandalwood”, this aftershave is sure to appeal to any shaver.
    The scent itself is a chameleon of sorts, with roots in the late Sixties. A little bit Clubman, a dash of Lilac Vegetal, a dollop of Brut, a splash of English Leather, a spritz of British Sterling; all without becoming muddled. The interplay of notes gives the splash a delightfully retro, yet contemporary feel.
     As for the post shave feel? Top notch. The splash also contains witch hazel, glycerin, as well as several herbal components designed to soothe and tone the skin.
     Onto the fun bits! If this aftershave intrigues you, and you don’t want to wait for the official release, you may not have to! Simply go to my Instagram and check out the contest. Good luck to all who enter!
