    Big sigh..........I'm out. Couldn't resist some vintage Aqua Velva Frosted Lime A/S.

    I can't blame you for AV Lime ....... now enjoy your freedom and hit eBay, Amazon and Esty till the end of December and try again next year.

    BTW the yard sales and antique shops are in full swing right now too.

    I have bought shaving cream and aftershave balm when I run out, but otherwise have not purchased anything in 2021. I will buy another 100 pack of Gillette Rubie or Platinum razor blades later this year when I get down to the last few packs, but that is about it. So it isn't "no buy", but I am not buying any shaving products I don't absolutely need.

    You mean the shave stick?

    Just kidding, just kidding! ;)

    That's a good one to go out on.

    Plus, you went more than half the year which is nothing to sneeze at.

    I am already out (vintage Seaforth! puchase) but I just finished off a bottle of Clubman classic, and have less than a half bottle of each of the following: VIBR, Whiskey Woods, F.A. Italian Citrus and a few precious spritzes of Pino Silvestre. I figure I will finish at least one of them maybe two (Italian Citrus and Pino) before the summer is over. So, I am eyeing a replacement. Right now considering the new Seaforth! Heather, or maybe Floid Vigoroso or Myersol something. Considering what I will still have left, I am leaning towards Floids or Myersol. Any advice?

    Still in! The great news is that the 3 digit countdown window is closing rapidly..

    I can’t seem to get interested in any of the Myrsol products. I’ve sniffed them all more than once and even had a couple of samples. I wanted to like them but they just don’t appeal to me.
    The only Floid I’ve had was an amber sample that I thought was good. Vigoroso has been around a long time and gets favorable reviews.

    I have Myrsol Agua De Limón. Nice fragrance, subtle, doesn't last on skin for very long. I got all of Floid's samplers from Maggard's a good while back. Vigoroso I used up (it's nice), Black almost gone (very nice imo). These two last a good half day or more. Suave and Amber I PIF'd. Not because they were bad, but so so in aroma to others.

    I thought I don't have a lot of stuff, but it seems I could easily go at least two more years without buying anything.

    You will have to remind me, Paul. I have slept since then!

    In other news, I have now broken my no-buy. I accidentally found a tube of Proraso blue cream marked down to $0.49 at Ross. Bought it. Satisfied. I really like Proraso. If I did buy anything else, it would most likely be a refill of MWF IF mine ever runs out. Then sell off everything else and just keep a rotation of MWF, Proraso and Stirling Iced Pineapple as my only soaps.

    The very one. Every so often I will see tubs or tubes of Proraso on their clearance rack.
