Superb shave Paul.
Love the Bon Vivant Jason. Use sparingly as it appears to have been retired. Boo! Excellent shave all around.
Excellent shave Jim.

Happy Friday Everyone. Whew. What a week. I am up and moving early this morning. At least I was able to get a relaxing shave in before the trip to visit Asha in Tampa, FL. The MrEE did a wonderful job loading and lathering MWF for Fat Friday. Three passes and touch ups caught the baby with ease. I hope everyone has a great Friday
I am not sure why they call this an Aromatic Fougère. Michael for Men, to my nose, is a leather/tobacco fragrance, with some fruit accords added for good measure. Compared to Kouros or Paco Rabanne, Michael lacks that soapy "oakmoss". If you want a strong leathery fragrance, this isn't it.
Here are the three fragrance notes for easy comparison:
Thanks so much Joe!

Superb shave Joe.
Super image and combination Clint! Evan's knurling on that handle is a perfect companion to the AS-D2. Safe travels, enjoy the time with Asha.
Thanks for the thoughts and comparisons Joseph!

I had a GREAT shave with the Nealon by Menlo today. Just a few weepers that sealed after applying the A&E Splash but ZERO irritation. I think ALI nailed it in saying the shave is VERY similar to the ST Stirling Head. This is an aggressive razor that has a nice smoothness too. While it has these characteristics it isn't a fit for me as I shave daily and have no need for one in this category. Those looking for a razor to take down more than a days growth efficiently while maintaining smoothness will be wanting to look at this one. Video with details.
Great shave and safe trip Clint.
Veddy nice session Dave.
Good morning, gentlemen!
A quick check-in from the hills of Kentucky to report on two major milestones. We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary on Sunday (yes, my Bride deserves a gold medal), and yesterday we enjoyed our first visit as a couple to a restaurant since last year. The weather was perfect, and one of the local car clubs decided to join us with their street rods. I almost popped the hood on my Toyota, but I didn't want to shame the 'Stang and 'Vette owners. I'm sure we could have won First Prize in the Grandpa car category.
Can you spot the irony in the photo? The plate wasn't large enough to hold all the French Fries, and yet we felt it necessary to order a side of Onion Rings to supplement the meal.
It was, of course, a classic case of Man vs. Food. Man won.
Life is good. Happy Friday!
Awesome check in Charlie!
34 years....congratulations to both of you. Super cool.
And....looks like an incredibly fun time and meal together.
Thanks Joe....they've been quite good of late.
Happy Anniversary, Charlie.
