    Outstanding shave today. DG's milksteak base is easily top 3 for me, maybe number one. I love this scent, the blackberry is a welcome addition to the bay rum.

    A Very Spicy Sunday shave with Stirling Spice, Old Spice, and my Rockwell 6S Matte Black.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Stirling Soaps Stirling Spice
    Razor: Rockwell Razors 6S Matte Black(R5, R4, and R3)
    Blade: Personna Med Prep (3)
    Brush: Zenith Boar
    AS: Old Spice (US)
    ASB: Stirling Spice

    I look forward to shaves like this. It brings me back to when I was a kid. My father, grandfather, and uncle used this magic fragrance. It was my first AS and EdC when I was 11. It reminds me of good food, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, and every day in between. To me, this is what family love smells like on the male side.

    Turkish Thursday with Arko Soap in a bowl (Refilled with a crushed soap stick) and my Rockwell 6S Matte Black.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Arko Soap
    Razor: Rockwell Razors 6S Matte Black(R5, R4, and R3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Tiger Platinum (2)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (No Idea)
    Brush: The Shaving Factory Turkish Boar
    AS: Arko Gold Power

    I scrapped some of the Arko into the bottom of my Captains Choice Heavy Copper, poured some hot water over it while I showered. I poured the bloom water into the VdH bowl with fresh hot water to build the lather from. That lather got slick, thick, and creamy. A really nice shave, if I do say so myself.

    I went Agar/Oud for this Freedom Friday. Just a nice shave. Loved it.

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Stirling Agar
    Razor: Rockwell Razors 6S Matte Black(R6, R4, and R3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Tiger Platinum (3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (No Idea)
    Brush: Stirling SHD
    AS/EdC: Home Made Oud AS/EdC
    ASB: Stirling Agar ASB

    I scraped some of the Stirling Agar into the bottom of my Captains Choice Heavy Copper, poured some hot water over it while I showered. I poured the bloom water into the VdH bowl with fresh hot water to build the lather from. That lather got slick, thick, and creamy.

    Good God, this shave was just a delight to the senses. I feel good, look good, and smell good. Just nice. Picked up my laundry at the laundry point and the ladies were very pleased. Then again they're pleased when I use Aqua Velva.

    Well, it was Sandalwood Saturday with Proraso Red. I'd be lying if I told you it was a good shave... It was great!

    Prep: Hot Shower and Bloom/Lather Building Water
    Soap: Proraso Red
    Razor: Rockwell Razors 6S Matte Black(R6, R5, R4, and R3)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Razor
    Blade: Tiger Platinum (4)/Merkur Mustache and Eyebrow Blade (No Idea)
    Brush: Omega S-Brush
    AS: Proraso Red
    ASB: Proraso Red Pre/Post Shave as ASB

    @wchnu would love this. Didn't bloom the soap. Just wet the brush, ran the tub under some hot water to wash away some of Iraq, and loaded. This part Fuzzy will hate. I took the brush to the bowl and built the superb lather pictured below. Three passes, hit the eyebrows, and killed the blade under the arms for a superb shave. The Proraso Red AS killed any germs left on the face from the water supply and the Pre-Post Shave was used as a balm. Smelling good. I wish Proraso would come out with a Red EdC/EdT.
