    For everyone who likes citrus products, lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, you know what I mean. I thought why not have Citrus Sundays, besides it kinda sounds better then Citrus Saturdays. It can also be a cross over for menthol lovers as many citrus products also come mentholated. And I just made up a batch of Orange After Shave to go along with my Orange PSO, Orange Soap and Orange Scented Witch Hazel.

    Excellent idea ... I'll pull out a citrus soap this morning! Probably TFS Linea Intenso Bergamotto Neroli.

    Edit: I did indeed. Lathered it with an Edwin Jagger Silvertip Fibre brush. Great combination.

    'Citrus Sunday', sounds good. In my house, there is 'Fat Friday'; 'Sandalwood Saturday'; 'Menthol Monday'; 'Tabac Tuesday' and Palmolive any day :) I need to get out more!

    So, for the first citrus Sunday, I used my Stirling glacial lemon chill. It's a fantastic soap, with a great lather and slickness. The amount of menthol in this soap will cool you off even on the hottest of days.

    Did I mention the scent? Lemon, lemon and more lemon! If you want citrus, this soap is it!

    Today I started Citrus Sunday with my Gillette New Short Comb head on a SS handle, with a Voskhod blade along with an FS badger brush. Used my orange PSO and orange soap, followed with an orange witch hazel and my orange freeze AS. It was a nice BBS shave and with the added menthol in the after shave, my face felt great........

    That head has given me good shaves with any blade I've used so far in it.

    I try really hard not to shave on Sundays & I like menthol Monday's so in order not to miss out, I got some of this... It will WAKE YOU UP on a Monday morning, and if you are not careful might even bring a tear to your eye. Great stuff.

    I got a combo of the soap and aftershave. The soap is not nearly as "mentholy" as the aftershave. I may try a combo of orange chill soap with lemon aftershave this Monday.

    Today's shave was my 1958 fat boy and RazoRock Essential Oil of Lime. Not bad, nice soap, but the scent fades quickly.

    two things happened in 1958-the birth of the fat boy, and me being one year old. :)

    I'd say a duo of this one and Mennen should do me well next summer.

    Citrus Sunday for August 21. TSD Yin Yang is a lime and lavender scent. Citrusy, but with a twist in the lavender addition. Really nice stuff.
