    Prep: Warm shower, Cetaphil Lotion
    Razor: EJ DE89 Head w/ Weber Classic Handle
    Blade: Personna Lab Blue (3)
    Lather: L'Occitane Cade Shaving Soap
    Brush: Oscar11 w/ Omega 20248 Knot
    Post: Witch Hazel, Cetaphil Lotion
    Aftershave: Old Spice

    I really like the scent of L'Occitane Cade soap. I'm not good with descriptions of scents, but this one smells very manly. It also easily works into a great, protective lather. I got a fantastic shave to end the workweek.

    Have a great day!

    I've tried a lot too. I like the Ozark MOuntain also. I find my face doesn't like the spicy type scents, bay rum, clubman, etc. It's hard to find a favorite. I'm partial to the menthol scents. I want to try a bunch more. ha ha

    I noticed @Jasman has a signature that says:
    "Intended Soap Scent Rotation, Roughly: Sunday: Jasmine; Monday: Menthol; Tuesday: Citrus; Wednesday: Woods; Thursday:Bay Rum; Friday: Jasmine; Saturday: Speick/Lavender. (Subject to change without notice)"

    Jeff's @crackstar line should say:

    I decided not to shave today. There was too much "exfoliating" with yesterday's shave shave that I think a small break is in order.

    I went through a bottle of 4711 very quickly. It has a light, refreshing scent that I enjoyed post-shave. More importantly, my wife wasn't grievously offended when I wore it. I may need to order some more.

    David, that combo (the Personna & the Sledgehammer) I found ideal together. Sometimes I'd switch out for a Feather Stainless, but either way, the Slant delivered an extremely close, yet comfy 2 or 3-pass shave.

    Troy M Prep: Mephitis mephitis musk


    Prep: warm wash - Stirling Naked and Smooth bath soap
    Lather: Stirling Spice
    Brush: Vie-Long 13061M
    Razor: Gillette New SC
    Blade: Persona Super (2)
    Post: Cold water rinse and homemade blue spice aftershave (received from a penpal)

    Friday morning is the start of my weekend so I anticipated a leisurely 3-4 pass shave resulting in BBS perfection, however, 2 passes got me near bbs, so I decided to stop. New SC remains a very efficient and smooth razor. Persona Blue blade does a very nice job.
    Have a wonderful day and weekend friends.

    Fellow SOTD-ers,

    I know I do not post on this thread nearly as much as I used to. But I still read it, quite avidly. I want to thank all of those who continue to post and share the experience with any given set up. You all are a source of inspiration for my shaves. Don't worry!! Lol I have not fallen of the wagon and reverted to cartridges and canned goo. Keep it up gentlemen, you all do a top notch job and I really, really enjoy this thread.
