    Sunday December 31st - last B+M sample for last shave of the year
    Gillette Aristocrat / Gillette Platinum Plus ( 4)
    30DC LE Maple Cashmere synthetic brush
    B+M Glissant Seville sample
    Alum and Lucky Tiger

    I ended the year with an excellent shave with some great gear. The Seville has a wonderful bitter orange aroma. The shave performance, of course, was topnotch. The 30DC LE brush is an old friend by now, and I am really enjoying the appearance, performance and overall quality of my new Gillette Aristocrat. Thanks again to @John Beeman for donating it to the TSD raffle so I could win it!

    I don't remember what my plan for DECember was other than to enjoy myself. I did the @Vlasta Mystery Cream Challenge for the start of the month. That was interesting and gave all the participants some surprising results, I think. I have since continued on with tests of a number of B+M samples. Along the way, I finished off my 100-pack of Topaz Platinum blades. Right now, I am using a mix of Voskhods and vintage Gillette Platinum Plus blades instead and am enjoying how sharp and smooth these blades are by comparison. This month I also got to enjoy the absolutely superb Gillette Aristocrat.

    For January, I have four Jeeves soaps to use for Jeeves January. I am not sure yet if I will do one each week or just mix and match as I go along. In addition, I will try shavettes. I have a Magic and used it for one single shave last MAYhem. I will use it for more this month. I also bought a Parker SRX and like the weight and feel of it in dry runs so far.

    See you all in January!
