Barrister and Mann shave soaps have an excellent reputation and for good reason. This soap is easy to lather up and has superb slickness. The scent on Leviathan is a dark one. If you love the scent of leather and not just any leather, this leather is what you would imagine Count Dracula would wear. The sandalwood and coffee round out the scent and makes this one special. Myself, I can't get enough of it. My favorite B&M scent by far.
