Grat photo, Gary!
Thank you Joseph!
Notwithstanding I still have a good amount of the original puck, I wouldn't be prone to purchase something whose perormance is still unknown...
As they say in the link, there are too many bad experienes!
Cool, shiny gear, Gary!
I have shot my tools as they appear at the time of the ritual, where the indispensable potty also appears!
Today I used a soap that seems acclaimed by connoisseurs: I don't like it!
I'm probably influenced by the smell: I could never get along with it.
That's why I no longer want to buy soaps without having smelled them first!
But the brush worked perfectly, the blade cut well and the razor... as usual.
Reading a forum I discovered this band: lively, but not so much that it is not suitable to accompany the pogonotomic liturgy...

That's a good reason for only purchasing unscented or lightly scented shave soaps. That's where I am moving in my den. My fragrance obsession has taken over and there's no reason to have a powerful shaving soap smell on my face. Not to mention, B&M scents can be extremely polarizing. Think Leviathan and Roam...

Semogue Taj Mistura
AOS Lavender Shave Cream
Fine Lavender Pour Homme Aftershave
CBL Dragon's Blood Soap
Sagrada Familiar 2 band
Proraso Vitamin E Balm
Tabac Tuesday's Shave
Cold Water Rinse
Tabac Shave Soap
Jayaruh #419 2-band Badger
Gillette New Deluxe Norfolk
Gillette Silver Blue
Tabac Shave Soap was lathered well with the Jayaruh #419 2-band Badger brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette New Deluxe Norfolk with a Gillette Silver Blue blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac ASB. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
But I like the onwa for me are fantastic scents: Knize Ten, Flor4is n. 89, Nomad (old), etc and do not mean to leave them.
You mean Roam is a... scent?
You're kidding me!
This is a picture of mine from September 2018. Nothing in it remained in my den...

Razor: Blackland Vector
Blade: Schick Proline (?)
Brush: Rubberset 400/Oumo Boar
Soap: Lakewood SOCP (1508.5 Project)
AS 1: Humphrey's Alcoholado Maravilla 70
AS 2: Anthony's Authentic Barbershop Bay Rum
Fragrance: Penhaligon's Sartorial
Back to the grind with the 1508.5 on steroids which is basically now 4 days a week with Weds a Williams Shave, Friday and Sunday are whatever I choose. When this is done I think I may whittle the den down to close to half again on soaps with a den sale of soaps and some aftershaves and Frags thrown in too. I'd ideally like everything to fit comfortably on the 3 shelves in the shave den again. I could change my mind but I'm at a point I want variety but I don't need every new thing that comes along and so may reduce to just the ones I know I will gravitate to on a regular basis. Picking a soap to use until gone just kills the joy of getting whatever strikes me that day. Why put myself thru having to use the same one, for a month or more just with the idea of using it up so it's gone when I can get it gone by selling or pif'ing it. Just random thoughts at the moment. I may start making a separate pile of things I'm considering and let the idea stew for awhile. I had been thinking this for awhile but today going back to my much loved Vector it had me thinking about the same deal with razors. At least modern razors that perhaps I should just keep maybe up to 3 of each category of moderns and just the vintage I enjoy using. Okay that's it "everyone get out of my head. You've been subjected to enough of my random thinking for a day. I had an amazing shave with the Vector and topped off with some great juice. Have a tremendously fun day Guys !!
