Our take on the classic Bay Rum scent. Bay 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. (Essential Oil)
I'm new to wet shaving and this is my first Bay Rum so I don't have anything to compare to. I really do like the scent and it's hard to beat Stirling's soaps. The lathering experience is amazing. I look forward to adding it to my rotation. Skeet on 21st Feb 2017
I initially purchased the sample Bay Rum and was expecting just the typical scent as I have been dabbling in it for years. But what I found was much better. For me the scent starts off as Bay Rum but then switches to a wonderful Orange fragrance.
It has become one of my favorite soap scents and I now have the Jar size (don't want to run out). Doug on 21st Feb 2017
I am a huge bay rum fan and this one is tops in my shave den. Smell is great and so is the performance. Can't beat Stirling's products. James Bonadies on 31st Jan 2017
The lather this soap produces is incredible. I'm using one of three razors in my small collection: 1930's Gillette bar handle new type open comb, a Weber polished Head and a Rockwell 6s stainless all using my favorite blade of all time the Gillette Nacet Stainless. The shaving is literally effortless and so comfortable that aftershave doesn't even burn in the slightest. The smell.....well that's as subjective as choosing a tie to go with your suit. Myself, I love it. It's very spicy/clove type smell. Aromas have always conjured images in my head & this one conjures images of what a 1600's pirate ship loaded with stolen spices & loot hiding anchored in warm Florida waters with loud pirates carrying on and drinking and raising hell in celebration might have smelled like. I know weird but that's what I smell/see. Jim on 31st Jan 2017
This was one of the first Stirling soaps I bought. I was very impressed by the slickness and ease of lathering. I have extremely hard water and that didn't prevent this soap from Lathering wonderfully! This is a powerful scent, which lasted several hours. Paired with my merkur 34c and a feather blade, the soap is a champ!! I didn't give it a five star rating only because it's not a scent I really love, however I would highly recommend it to a person who loves bay rum. thanks for the great soaps! john Szivecz on 21st Dec 2016
Soap lathers well. I use the jar to load the soap on the brush (Boar-Semouge 1800) after bloom and face lather. Smooth and slick, rinses easily and have had no irritation or dryness even with my sensitive skin. Glen on 20th Dec 2016
Very great soap and scent. I live in a very dry area and where other soaps need tons of water to lather, this soap performed outstandingly. I am a big fan of Bay Rum and combined with my Bay Rum aftershave (not from stirling) creates an excellent scent. Keaton A. Busch on 16th Dec 2016
Best scent and shave soap I've used. Be warned buying products from Stirling is habit forming.

Bay Rum is sometimes an allusive scent, but Stirling hits the mark! If you've tried other Bay Rum products from different soap makers, you'll find the scents widely differ (many of them fall short and can't nail it down). Stirling's version is not too spicy, but still has a great aromatic scent. Warm top notes of clove and cinnamon with an orange base. Keep in mind, these are essential oils, not synthetic perfumes, so the quality is obvious. It's very mellow, clean and authentic. And yes, I'm replacing my Barrister & Mann with Stirling's Bay Rum. Great stuff. Mike on 13th Dec 2016
I'm often not too crazy about Bay Rum but this scent is killer. Straight spice and clove, magnificent. Like the other offerings from Stirling, the soap performs extremely well. Easy lathering, slick as hell, and kickass post shave.
Scent is awesome! Piker on 10th Dec 2016
Stirling is an amazing soap in general but the clove in this one is very strong and sharp smelling. It has the potential to give me a headache. If you love bay rum you will probably like this also but its just not for me. Unknown on 9th Dec 2016
My favorite Bay Rum shave soap, and I've tried many. As usual with Stirling soaps, lather is slick as can be and post shave is top notch. Love Stirling soaps and love this Bay Rum scent. Will always have it in the rotation. Unknown on 6th Dec 2016
I ordered a sample of Bay Rum late last weekend, and it got here fast. I shaved with it this morning before work, it was the typical Stirling experience we have all come to love (Thick, rich lather and incredible slickness). I didn't love the scent though, I bought it on a whim (I didn't know what "bay rum" smelled like) it's very hard to describe other than it smells like "bay rum." I have a fish medicine called PimaFix for my aquarium that is made from extract of the bay tree, it smells almost identical to the soap. So in my book they nailed the scent, I don't know as though I would buy a full size puck of it...I can't fault Stirling for me not liking a scent, the soap itself performs excellently. If you enjoy Bay Rum scents I would definitely recommend this soap. Andrew P. Trumble on 26th Nov 2016
Never disappointed with Stirling Soaps. My favorite was the Clubman Scent. That being said I like both the Stirling Spice and the Bay Rum scents and will continue to be a satisfied customer. Scott Miller on 19th Nov 2016
in spite of the fact that I am not a Bay rum type of guy, this shaving soap is still amazing in terms of performance. It has all the necessary ingredients in it to stand out from any other shaving soaps. I also received the sample of their barbershop soap (not a shaving one though) and it semlls just amazing. Barbershop shaving soap must be the best smelling one in their production line I believe. I am looking forward to buying it in the nearest future. Stirling quality is outstanding! George on 15th Nov 2016
I ordered this along with a number of other sample pucks to see what scents I would like best and Bay Rum is one of the winners. This is a very nice scent that I love lingering in my beard during the day. Andrew Wheelock on 3rd Nov 2016
This soap has a great Bay Rum fragrance and lathers with varying degrees of difficulty:
BOWL: Copious thick lather that is easy to produce
SCUTTLE: Wet thin lather to thick lather depending on temperature. My scuttle lathers like my bowl only after it cools down from hot to warm. Sometimes difficult to get the temp right.
FACE: Not as good. I use a Stirling Badger brush (Fantastic), but it is difficult to get the lather out of the brush. Unknown on 3rd Nov 2016
The Stirling Bay Rum shave soap was given to me in a sample puck as a gift, and once again, you guys nailed it! Smells very nice, makes a ton of rich luxurious lubricating lather, and I always get a very nice nick and irritation free shave with this soap. Makes my double edge razor glide smoothly. Awesome smelling and performing soap, I will be ordering a jar of this magnificent Bay Rum shave soap! Unknown on 17th Oct 2016
I used to wish for old Jovan shaving soap. I'd read a You Tube review of this brand, ordered two cakes & am in love with this shaving soap. Will order a DEEP stockpile to insure I never again go without. Deep RICH lasting lather than leaves a smooth balming finish. I highly recommend! Vic L. on 11th Oct 2016
The performance as everyone has said is amazing. I've used a few top of the line artisans and this performs just as good or better. The scent is somewhat heavier on the spice/clove, but it is still balanced, as the lime/bay cut it pretty well. So you definitely get the spice hit and a little sweetness but it rounds out into a balanced smell once the bay/lime hits. Unknown on 22nd Sep 2016
