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)
This is only the second Stirling scent I've tried, and if two points determine a line, we're heading in the right direction. This is a wonderful scent. The puck smells good enough, but once the lather is formed and applied, the fragrances are released more fully. How can I describe it...It's sort of a giant rummy-spicy-sweet cloud on the face. What kicks this scent over the edge for me is the subtle but clear note of orange that sort of harmonizes with the other scents. As I work my way through the many samples I purchased (agonizingly slowly, since these darn samples last so long), I'm making a short list of aftershaves to try. Bay Rum is first on the list so far, but I expect there will be others. Bryan S. on 20th Jun 2017
Love this shave soap and happy to see a company using a full essential oil blend instead of fragrance oils. Unknown on 13th Jun 2017
After trying the small sample of Bay Rum and finding that it delivered everything as advertised, I ordered the large size.
I am very pleased with the Bay Rum shaving soap, I get very close shaves, it protects my face during shaving and leaves my skin soft and happy.
The Bay Rum scent as delivered by Stirling Soap Company is as near to perfect as is possible. The scent is a classic and Stirling produces a well balanced, pleasing smell. Ted on 13th Jun 2017
As always, Stirling has done a magnificent job with this soap. I love the smell of spices and cloves in this soap. My only wish is that the smell was stronger and lasted longer. Clint on 9th Jun 2017
This might be my favorite scent. It has an unbelievable smell like rich, thick spices and vanilla. I like to stick my nose in the tin and smell it sometimes even when I'm not shaving. It lathers very well. Unknown on 29th May 2017
My all time favorite scent, very difficult to get correct and Stirling has nailed it bang on.
This is the scent my children grew up with associating with me and my wife loves it and allows me to stick around now for 49 years. I will be getting a large container because this is closest to a now long deceased scent. Thank you Stirling! Unknown on 27th Apr 2017
When I initially smelled this soap, I wasn't extremely impressed with the scent. After I bloomed the soap and lathered it up to shave for the first time though, I was sold! A nice cinnamon, clove smell that really comes out as you use it. The performance (like all of Stirling's other soaps) was superlative. Ben on 26th Apr 2017
This is still one of my favorite Stirling soaps. The smell is really nice, but for me the soap lathers really well in hard water. This soap always gives me a good clean shave no matter what blade I use. Unknown on 12th Apr 2017
I'm a big fan of bay rums, I have several but this is the best there is!
Scent is scrumptious. 6 on the strength scale, really nice! And performance is fantastic! But you expect that from sterling. Robert S. on 10th Apr 2017
Great lather, very smooth shave and a wonderful light scent. How could it be better? Unknown on 6th Apr 2017
We only have used Col. Conk prior to this Bay Rum but love Stirling Soap. Smells great and is great quality as are all of Stirling soaps! Chrys on 5th Apr 2017
I had never tried a Stirling Soap product previously but, after several glowing reviews, I decided to try several varieties. The Bay Rum has a wonderful scent. Not too strong, not too weak, pretty much just right. The lather really is the feature that blew me away. Amazingly thick and rich. It was extremely easy to get the proper consistency and gives a wonderful shave. These fine folks produce an outstanding soap which is also an amazing value. Well done!! Jerry on 5th Apr 2017
The scent is great and has the same excellent performance I've come to expect from Stirling soaps. I PERSONALLY will probably not get more just because there are a few other scents that I prefer other than bay rum but no points lost for that. It really does smell and work great. Redman on 5th Mar 2017
I tried three different samples and they all lather and perform well above average. Top shelf soaps in how they perform. The Bay Rum is an excellent scent and much better than any other one I've tried. Just overall excellence in every way with this soap. Neal Cox on 28th Feb 2017
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
