    I enjoyed the "Acqua" soap, but I didn't buy the matching aftershave. Now I have two soaps- "Gold" and "Tuscan Oud". Good stuff, all right.

    I really love their German 37 slant razor. I also have the Black Hawk V2, but I haven't had a good experience with it. However, this was most likely due to a dud blade that I purchased, and not the razor itself.

    After reading some positive feedback about Razorock Blue Barbershop. I bought a few pucks and finally got around to it today.

    I bloomed the puck and took a shower first.

    Prep: bloom water from the container.

    Soap: Razorock WTP Blue Barbershop

    Brush: Semougue OC Boar

    Razor: Razorock Gamechanger .84

    Blade: Astra SP

    Post: Dickensons witch hazel

    Aftershave: Epsilon Mediterranean blue

    Lotion: Gillette aftershave gel

    Made for a nice shave this morning. Lathered up in a reasonable time as well. The scent is close enough to the Epsilon. So they paired up well as I'd expected. Did 3 passes and ended up with a DFS.

    I think this will be staying in my shaving rotation as I really enjoy this type of scent anytime of the year.

    Had a very enjoyable all Razorock head shave... brush, suds, razor and splash.
    Huge fan of The Dead Sea soap and this early Hawk Stainless DLC is always a joy.

    Another shave with RR What the Puck blue barbershop.

    It turned out to be a good shave.

    Finished it off with some aqua Velva and Gillette aftershave gel.

    Does anyone notice a difference in scent between Razorock Tuscan Oud soap and the aftershave?? I have had the soap for years now and love that slightly fruity/leathery cologne scent and would LOVE to have this scent as a afterdhave/EDT. recently picked up the aftershave and it smells exactly like Stirling Haverford which is based off a completely different fragrance and smells like tobacco/Vanilla and is based off Tom Ford Tobacco Vanilla.

    Have contacted IB about this and was told there might be a SLIGHT difference due to EU regulations. I've had a issue with IB in the past sending me a completely different product than ordered and was told "sorry about my luck" and these being the ONLY issues i have had from buying thousands of dollars of products from many vendors over the years.

    but these 2 products are not even on the same planet keep in mind that other people in my household agree that they smell nothing alike. I'm not usually one to make a big deal about things like this but was royally ticked off since im very familiar with Tuscan Oud.


    If anyone that has used both the soap and A/S of Tuscan Oud could shed some light on this issue i would really appreciate it. Sorry for the rant just want to know if anyone else has had this issue.

    Blade: Kai SS(7)- sharp & smooth with great longevity, extra wide blade by .009" thousands of a inch than a standard Gillette giving more blade feel.
    Soap: Razorock XXX, nice refreshing clean scent with excellent lather qualities. One of my favorites.
    Brush: Razorock 24mm Plissoft, excellent lather generator, soft tips, nice scrub + excellent lather painter. 4 years ago top of the line synthetic brush but Oh how times change so quickly. I used this inexpensive brush a lot over the last 3.5 years and still use it.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Razorock XXX[​IMG] with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 1 weeper(operator error)= [​IMG] excellent shave with my RR GC.84 with a Kai SS blade.
