    Schick G1v3, personna blade, shave 3
    g1v3.jpg

    Last iteration of the G1 made in 53 - 54. It differs from the first variants by the rounded ferule that the spring is attached to. This is probably one of the best milder razors I own not a perfect BBS but it gets the job done with little fanfare. I will also say having used the G1v1 made circa 46/47 this razor is a little bit milder than that razor but much more efficient. My guess and I'll know on my next shave is that this razor and the G8 are probably the same shaver just with different handles.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Fine Snake Bite
    TOST LE
    TNNSER 3D
    Gem CS SE
    CWR
    Osage Rub

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap face lathered well with the TOST LE Brush. I did two passes with the TNNSER 3D razor with a Gem CS SE Blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Hot shower prep.
    The Alpha took first pass with a 6th use Bluebird. The Gem Featherweight deluxe took second pass and some buffing cleanup with a second use Gem SS PTFE.
    The Palmolive and Proraso green whipped up nicely on a two band badger. And a splash of witch hangeland a hot rinse finished things off.

    Phoenix Shaving | Harvest Moon
    Kent V8
    The New Improved Schick Injector Razor | Personna 74


    [​IMG]

    Last year I acquired Phoenix Shaving's "Harvest Moon" EdP. Given the abundance of seasonal offerings this time of year coupled with my over-abundance of product, I just couldn't bring myself to purchase another soap at the time. I'm glad I did pick up the EdP, because after having been using this fragrance intermittently for a year, I just can't get enough of it. While the profiles are vastly different, Harvest Moon rivals Declaration Grooming's "Dark Fall" as my all-time favorite Fall fragrance.

    Harvest Moon is a prime example of how documented scent notes sometimes fail to demonstrate the true nature of a fragrance. The notes are as follows: oud, green tobacco, black currant, tobacco absolute, hay absolute, Peru balsam, smoke, Spanish moss, and white sage. That certainly sounds like something I would enjoy, but I was not prepared for what I’d experience.

    To my nose, Harvest Moon opens with a vaporous sweet petroleum teetering between creosote and gasoline. This description may very well steer some away, but it artfully achieves this vibe in a very similar fashion of that of classic Fahrenheit. This peculiar fuel note quickly ushers in a faint bit of smoke before becoming less volatile and more metallic. The metal element is that of warm oily steel with wet flinty and graphite notes. This subtle transition all occurs over a period of about 30 minutes before succumbing to a damp earthy fragrance with pleasant judicious fresh tobacco, green herbs, and sweet sun-baked alfalfa that emits a subtle buttery note. I enjoy this middle phase for a good 3-4 hours, at which point the EdP doesn't lose momentum but rather darkens a bit more with rich, dark, wet earth soaked in Dr. Pepper, of all things, along with freshly split resin-weeping wood. This quintessential Fall-themed dry down lasts for about another 3 hours before fading. Harvest Moon begins very industrial, painting an image of steam-punk machinery monstrosities before evoking memories of well-trodden theme park grounds on a brisk cool night and ultimately relenting to a natural warm, grassy earthiness with gentle wafts of cured smoky aromatic tobacco.

    In addition to this being a very pleasant fragrance, the performance of this EdP is outstanding. It has enough character and variety such that I don't get tired of it or noseblind. It's understandably marketed as a Fall fragrance, but over the past year, I've found it to be quite versatile. Despite the unapologetically bold, possibly polarizing opening, I find that element is short-lived enough such that casual or even professional wear are still appropriate.

    This is one of those unique instances in which I've extensively used a fragrance before ever owning the soap or splash. I've become so enamored with Harvest Moon, I couldn't avoid purchasing the whole set this season.
