    This morning I used the TFS Barba Gialla soap once again. Finished my shave with L.T. Piver "A La Reine Des Fleurs", which is a citrusy cologne originating from the 18th century.

    Helios by Dapper Dragon fulfills my citrus punch every time. Their scale gel is very good as well.

    Does Canoe count? My nose ain't what it used to be. I know it was citrusy back in the day. Used it Sunday for the start of my Focus shave. And yes, I'm late again.

    Even though I like using my other Gem razors (1912, Pushbutton, Featherweight, Micromatic OC), the G-Bar is my favorite. For me, it's weight and balance are perfect and I always expect great shaves from it. And today was no exception as it delivered a very smooth and comfortable three pass BBS shave.

    Since I just received a few new Stirling soaps and the temperature here is suppose to get up to freezing today - I just may break with my routine of not shaving on Sunday and go with Stirling Orange Chill, which has menthol. I was going to wait for warmer weather before trying it, but freezing is warm enough.

    Menthol's good any time. I do like my orange menthol, which I put in a good amount of menthol.

    Ok - I did it. A great scent but I was not prepared for the amount of menthol. It truly is an Orange Chill. Like all Stirling soaps it lathered great and is very slick. Used a Muhle R89 with a Voskhod blade and a Vie Long Horse Hair brush. Finished with a splash of Fine L'Orange Noir. First time for this after shave - very nice also - especially paired with a citrus soap.

    After two days of growth, the 1912 had no trouble taking it off. A very good three pass BBS shave.

    Easy sailing with the PAL. Route 66 post shave is so good I just followed it up with a splash of Fine Platinum and was out the door feeling smooth and smelling great. Have a great day my friends!

    I made it a Citrus Saturday this week and used TFS Sotto La Mole soap, which is a lemon bomb like no other.
