Barrister & Mann Rhapsody Aftershave Tonique Splash

In the mid-1980s, the House of Nicolaï released a beautiful, stately fragrance for men under the name "New York." Bright and citrusy, but with distinct floral and spicy elements, it soon became a favorite among men of wealth, power, and prestige.

Patricia de Nicolaï herself, catapulted by the success of this and many other masterpieces bearing her signature, eventually became director of the Osmotheque, the world's scent archive. In the wake of her meteoric rise and continually prolific work for her House, many of her earlier creations, including New York, have been largely forgotten in favor of newer, shinier aquatics and dry, earthy vetiver/citrus creations.

But not everyone has forgotten them.

In the spirit of the title "New York," Barrister & Mann decided to incorporate the scent of pear blossoms, which bloom in Central Park in the springtime and have a famously pungent odor, into a citrus/floral/spice structure to symbolize the beauty of Spring (when the snow finally melts). Because using only our pear blossom accord made the fragrance rather heavy, we decided to lighten it with the scents of apple and cherry blossoms, incorporating all three accords into a base of lemon, orange, orange flower, rose, bay, thyme, sandalwood, patchouli, musk, lavender, and vanilla.

The result was a clean, sweet, citrusy scent with a distinctly floral cast and a richly smooth base, perfect for still-chilly Spring mornings where it's hard to justify getting out of bed. Bright and uplifting, Rhapsody is sure to leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face the day.

  1. Long Lasting

    Posted by Brett on 5th Aug 2017

    I bought this aftershave because I thought it would go well with my XPEC . That it does.
    Quite a long lasting scent, great face feel and for me, a great cool weather aftershave.

  2. Cool scent.

    Like the Rhapsody soap, this splash is a fresh, clean scent that impresses.

  3. Exquisite Melody for the Face

    Will from Barrister & Mann has done it again.

    A superb scent that dances and delights the nose. For me, the cherry blossom blends the many notes together. This is one of my favourite scents for Spring & Summer.

    This is a sophisticated fragrance for those that enjoy a masculine scent with the fruity & floral fragrance of Spring.

    It's the performance that underscores the scent for me. These B&M aftershaves feel terrific on the face - soothing, smooth and simply delightful.

    There's no harshness associated with alcohol; nor any residue left on the skin. This absorbs cleanly for a thoroughly invigorating splash. The longevity of the scent is around 4-5 hours for me.

    It would compliment any number of EdTs.

  4. Very floral

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Apr 2016

    Whilst I adore the soap, the aftershave amplifies the floral scent which I'm not completely a fan of.

    Great face feel but the scent is a bit too powdery/floral for my taste.
