    That's an awesome vintage glass bottle. I wish I could find one as intact as yours.

    Early morning shave,

    Last outing of the Gillette Winner stainless, throughout the week the blade has performed wonderfully with causing no irritation or dulling problems...All in all, though i like the Gillette Winner Stainless & Platinum as both blades have gave me good satisfactory shaving results are suited to my mature skin type, and have paired together wonderfully with the various DE razors that i have used...Another enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of Blue Stratos ASL.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Marvellous scents and beautiful brush frozen in a fantastic shot.
    All spoiled by the crummy razor which you should get rid of!

    (Did I tell you about my activity in collecting crummy razors?)

    Second day of planning an almond shave and second day of I self-defeated my expectations.
    But I was gifted a brick of vetiver beef yoghurt tallow soap and curiosity was high.

    I had already tried that brand with contradictory results.
    The poor result I think was due to the fact that I had used a pig bristle brush that I don't know how to use. The one with the badger, on the other hand, was satisfying.
    Meaningless if what I read is true: they will no longer be produced, so... cui prodest?

    But it was nice to find a scent very close to the one I like.
    The brick allowed me to use it as a stick and created a creamy mayonnaise, yoghurt like, without "Santa effect", but very effective for tonsorial purposes.
    The result was very satisfying and the generosity of the Soap Donor will allow me to satisfy my vetiver cravings until I find a fragrance I like.
    The rest? In the norm...

    I enjoyed a camp performance by a German who is a stage animal.
    He not only performs pieces from the 20s and 30s, but expands into others from the 50s (Singing in the rain, e.g.) repurposed in the style of the earlier years/Big Band.

    Very enjoyable and suitable for a shave in the silence of the countryside!

    Thursday's Shave

    Cold Water Rinse
    Musgo Real Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #277 Badger
    Fuzzy Lather Catcher
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS

    The Musgo Real Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #277 Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the Fuzzy Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Thursday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 4
    Master Soap Creations Frosted Lavender SS
    Prep ASB
    Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Every one of these new soaps from Fernando is a treasure - this Frosted Lavender is no exception. It’s tallow based, the lavender scent is magnificent, it’s such a pleasure to lather, the slickness is awesome, the menthol sensation is just about strong enough to match the Kameelperd or the Stirling Glacials, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep, together with the Snake Bite aftershave completed the job beautifully. The Astra Green blade and my great technique helped to give me a brilliant three pass BBS shave!

    Enjoy your day - stay healthy and safe!
