    What a beautiful start to February!

    An awakening marked by a beautiful grayness.
    Then I listened for the first time to a friend's gift: Ella & Louis!
    Fitzgerald's voice, fresh and crystal clear combined with Satchmo's rough voice: what an incredible contrast!
    Of course he plays his trumpet and.... what perfection of sound!

    I remember, back in the late 1950s, when Armstrong has been a guest on a TV show.
    I didn't know who he was, but I still remember that big black face in which shone a row of white teeth: he smiled heartly, not a politician's smile!
    He passed a white handkerchief over his sweaty face, drained the humidity from his instrument, kissed the mouthpiece and... from there my father would go into ecstasy
    He was the greatest trumpet player in the world and he was of an incredible modesty: nice, helpful...
    And to think that this great artist was forbidden to enter through the main door of the theaters where he was performing. being black he had to pass through the back door!
    It seems incredible to me...

    And that's not all!
    Next to these two giants there is another one: Oscar Peterson!
    A giant in every way!
    Unbelievable that someone with the physique of a tackle could have such nimble fingers!
    There were still times when he didn't perform as a soloist: an incredible sideman for two jazz great artists!

    After a shave whose relevance to all this is negligible and unworthy of comment, however pleasant, when I sat down to do my homework, they were broadcasting a service from the Villa Borghese Museum presented by none the less than Antonio Paolucci, the former curator of the Vatican Museums!

    His culture leaves me stunned, perhaps because I don't even know the name of the seven dwarfs!
    And what fluidity of exposition, what rapidity of thought, what clarity of comparison!
    The way he recounts Bernini...


    How did a man, four centuries ago, get something like this out of a piece of marble?

    Alright, I'll stop it right there!

    And, yes, as I said, the shave with a brush, a razor and one of my favorite soaps, was satisfying!
    The blade could have been smoother, even if not more efficient!


    Sapone PS: Pear Soap
    Sapone: Floris, N° 89
    Pennello: Simpson's, Commodore X3, BB

    Razor: Lupo .72
    Blade: Wizamet (2)
    Brush: Grizzly Bay/Oumo SHD
    Soap: Lakewood SOCP (1508.5 Project)
    AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
    AS 2: Clubman Citrus Musk
    Fragrance: Spicebomb

    Back to the Soap Project which is just about doughnut holed so the end is in site. 1st use of the .72 SB Lupo and it reminds me of the DLC Lupo but I like the looks better. I think I prefer the .95 but am on the fence until I compare them more closely. I know the Spicebomb doesn't really match up with the Citrus Musk but it overtakes it just right with the lime musk peaking sporadically and I LOVE this peppery/spicy scent any time of year. Hope Fluffy is safe while out plowing the enemy attacking his domain. Have a great day everyone !!!

    Pre-shave:- Cold Shower
    Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice
    Brush:- Semogue SOC 2 Band Finest Badger in Butterscotch 24/53mm knot
    Soap/Cream:- Cella Red Tub
    Razor/Blade:- Gillette New Short Comb 1930 / Gillette Stainless (red & white pack) #4
    Post/After-shave:- T.N. Dickinson Witch Hazel Astringent mixed into the 240ml bottle with Invite E High Potency Pure Oil (10 drops), Natural Plant Glycerin (20) & Tea Tree Oil Antiseptic (5)
    Fragrance:- Davidoff Cool Water Wave

    HOLY MOLY!! Finally using my Gillette New SC changing the razor over from the Fatip Testina Gentile, I should've gotten the vintage 1930 Gillette New SC instead of the LC years ago.
    The vintage Gillette New SC has given me extra smoothest, extra comfortable and extra close DFS++completely irritation-free shave since I had the 1930 Gillette New LC was very uncomfortable to shave no matter what blade I choose.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Eskimo Tuxedo Shave Soap
    Jayaruh 340 2-band Badger
    Red and Black Gillette Old Type
    Gillette Silver Blue
    Osage Rub

    The Eskimo Tuxedo Shave Soap was applied with the Jayaruh 340 2-band Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Red and Black Gillette Old Type with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
