    Thanks! That poor little VDH brush only shed 6 or 8 bristles this shave. I hate to toss it, but one day it's going to be done for.

    Believe it or not Rick mine eventually did quit shedding and is now a pretty good face lathering brush. :)

    I think @bscarpenter did it and shared in the 30 Day Rule/Focus Group. I warmed a VDH boar brush in a suribachi bowl, emptied the water and added a splash of Florida Water. My Arko is pressed into a small tupperware like container. Loaded up the brush, brought soap to bowl and whipped up a Citrusy Spicey lather. No science to it - more Hoodoo Magic.

    Works fine with florida water, but watch what you mix into your soap or cream. I tried lime sec and it wasn't good. I think the alcohol in the lime sec combined with the soap did not make a great combo.

    First time posting here on this thread. Arko provided some lemony goodness and I continued the theme with Pinaud Citrus Musk. A nice shave! Enjoy your weekend.

    TFS Sotto La Mole for me today, which has a very strong citrus scent.
    I started the day with lemon tea anyway :) so it's real Citrus Sunday.
