SRS # 895 - Gemini Shave - AA Gen Takahashi Tokusei - Lather Bros. Calle Ocho - PAA Harvest Moon
Rating: 5 / 5
Razor: AA Gen Takahashi Tokusei
Brush: Epsilon Horse Hair
Lather: Lather Bros. Calle Ocho
Aftershave: PAA Harvest Moon
Dickenson’s Original Witch Hazel
Stirling Unscented Glacial Balm
Another fabulous Calle Ocho shave with the Japanese straight razor. My face is super smooth even hours post shave. The alum report was silent. The PAA Harvest Moon aftershave’s scent lingers as I am still getting subtle whiffs many hours later. The scent profile of the splash is as follows: “Oud (Agarwood), Green Tobacco, Black Currant, Tobacco Absolute, Hay Absolute, Peru Balsam, Smoke, Spanish Moss, White Sage.”
Have a great day gentlemen.
I guess he likes to Yaqi
Terrific setup and shave Joe.
fine tuesday shave and pic Joe.
Thank you Joe.
Thank you Gents. I do like the Tabac scent it's a good latherer, maybe I haven't quite mastered it yet.
7 June 2023
24 hours, super mid-week shave
Same face prep and same hardware as yesterday 6 June 2023, Derby Premium (2)
Time to bring out the Sterling’s British leather and attack the @Trigger method. It works folks!
¾ scoop into the Timeless lather bowl
60 CW and 60 CCW, repeat five times, dribbling in some water each time, resulted in great slick shiny lather. I will scoop out a little more soap next time
This does not dry out the same as some other lathers, and provides a nice cushion and great post shave feel
Post shave: warm and cold water rinse, el cheapo Brut a/s and some Proraso facial balm
(I want to finish both of these asap, ok, not great, but don’t believe in wasting stuff)
Have some great shaves!
