Stirling’s take on the classic bay rum scent. West Indies (pimenta racemosa) essential oil is blended with orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and a hint of clove to provide a very complex and masculine aroma.

Bay Rum soap, Splash & Post-Shave Balm
Bought these 3 in October. I’ve never tried bay rum anything before. But if this one’s anything to go by then I’ve been missing out. As always with ALL Stirlings this one is sublime. If you read through some of the other Stirling reviews there’s a common thread in the descriptions/adjectives. “Excellent glide, slickness” & so on. The scent, to stay the least, is marvellous. The star of the show however, for me, was the aftershave splash. Warning. It’s bracing for a minute or so but what a finish, what a scent! I let it settle for a few moments longer before applying the balm.
This trio, again my perspective, is impressive. A gents treat. Up there with Barbershop (check that one too).
So this morning I ordered the Bay Rum EDT.
Great service, yet again, from Peter at Artisan.
Finally purchased this soap maker after wanting to try for a long time. Chose the Bay Rum in honour of my grandfather (his sig scent, as I’m sure was many other Grandfathers too). Beautiful scent from the pack and excited to find a slight croap situation. As always with a new soap, felt a little tentative learning how thirsty this soap would be, but found it to work excellently with my med/hard carbonate Adelaide water. Incredible slickness straight away and excellent tight micro foam (which also never broke down during the shave). First pass felt excellent. Second pass, it was where I experienced the excellent cushion properties of this soap. Outstanding even. Post shave, skin felt moisturised/supple and zero feeling of any friction. Also, very subjective subject, but the lingering fragrance was perfect for me- am not a fan of heavy perfumes. Very happy shaver indeed. Also would like to mention the excellent service from Artisan Arcade-no fuss purchasing, extremely quick pack/dispatch and will absolutely be a returning customer.
