Interesting Ron. Was that by design or typical Yaqi Quality Control result? I've been curious about this Henson like Head in SS. Great shave !

Razor: Mark Cross
Brush: Wolf Whisker
Soap: Ethos Pineapple Coconut
AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
AS 2: Nivea Deep
Consecutive Daily Shaves - # 1142
Williams Mug Soap
Yaqi Sagrada Familiar 2 Band
Agua Colonia Antiga
Cold Water Rinse
Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap
58 Gillette Rocket
Florida Water Cologne
The Mitchell's Wool Fat Shave Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #395 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 58 Gillette Rocket Razor with a Nacet Stainless Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Florida Water Cologne. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
That’s true but the sting only lasts for a second and then the soothing sensation kicks in.

Thursday morning’s Grand Freeze:
Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
Super Speed/Gillette Platinum day 2
MSC Frosted Lavender SS
MSC Frosted Lavender AS Splash
Any colder than this and I think my face would have disintegrated - this Frosted Lavender soap has some major menthol in it - in fact it easily compares to any of the Stirling Glacials in terms of freezing power. It’s tallow based, the scent is beautiful, the lather is so thick, rich, super slick as well as protective, the menthol sensation hits like a sledgehammer, and the skincare is perfect. The Prep needs no description because it’s so good, and the Frosted Lavender aftershave is witch hazel based, it has the same lovely scent as the soap, and it’s so frigid. Another picture perfect BBS shave that I did in three passes!
Enjoy your day and your shaves - be well and safe!

Not sure Dave, it's more QC issues but once you get it figured out it is quite a good shave IMO. I'm not sure if Yaqi makes these stainless steel heads or they are farmed out to other machine shops. Once they figure things out they simply have good products that work I have experienced.
Gillette and other Mfg's have different methods of testing.
Have some great shaves!

This ATT SE1 is one of the early AC/ SE Razors, but IMHO holds its own against some of the more modern ones performance wise. It does not compare price wise with some of them but it delivers good Shaves,.I am getting consistently top quality trouble Shaves with it since pairing it up with a Feather guarded blade.
I would say it is a little bit of everything including essence of kitchen sink!
Below is a copy of the notes PAA provided. I find the scent on this to be mild and somewhat muddled or generic.
It is pleasant to me, but nothing stands out too much or is bold in the scent.
