What does it smell of? Imperial Rum is a gentle and layered profile. It begins with a citrus nose of lime and sweet orange before moving in to the warm and spicy note of West Indian bay. Hints of vanilla and a slight balsamic scent merge in to the cinnamon, pepper and juniper notes of Allspice (pimenta dioica).

The scent settles down in to the sweetness and depth provided by ylang-ylang and benzoin. Imperial Rum is a balanced and carefully crafted profile that shifts and introduces aspects after its application.

Grounding, warming and relaxing, Imperial Rum is an impeccable choice for any season. For those wishing to prolong the enjoyment of the scent we recommend the lotion be paired with its solid cologne and post shave namesakes.

Excellent soap

Perfect glide and cushion with a very nice smell


Nice scent, easy to lather and I dont feel dry after the shave.

Not really Bay Rum :-(

Two parts to this review really, firstly the performance in shaving, outstanding here as good as anything and definitely top tier, no complaints. Secondly the scent, i adore Bay rum scents in all their guises but this one has me, i'm not sure if there was a mix up with the fragrance oils when my batch was mixed but the only thing i can smell is ylang-ylang, absolutely nothing else coming through, and whilst i don't hate ylang-ylang i'd never buy a soap of that fragrance. It's a bit of a shame as i may end up passing this on unless i can get used to it, so for that reason alone i'm only giving it 3 stars.

Hi Baz, Sorry to hear this. It is unusual that all you can detect is Ylang Ylang, especially as it's only used in a slight quantity in the over all scent profile. Feel free to email me your contact details and I can get a sample of Imperial Rum for you to compare. Best regards, Kerry.
