    Tabac Tuesday SOTN

    Oh man... I need to use my Schick Type C Repeating Razor much more often. Close to 3 days of growth was no match for this oldie but goodie. Once you get the angle down, it's fairly aggressive but smooth with shorter strokes. I'm smooth and smell excellent for bed. Happy shaves all.

    All this week's shaves are with the South African made bundubeard coffee puck, and man is this stuff fantastic. I could literally get by using this and arko alone, absolutely fantastic stuff. I have the 250g puck, so this thing is an absolute monster, and last time i checked they were about 95 rand l, which is just under 7 dollars, so rediculously good value for money. I decided to bin the injector blade after 18 beautiful shaves, stay tuned for the next shave which will be my first shave with the pearl OC!

    Gillette Vector, Palmolive Classic. I gave up trying to find DE blades in Hanoi, just too darn hot to be schlepping around the city. I'll deal without for another couple days.[​IMG]

    Meißner Tremonia soaps are, in my opinion, very efficient.
    Alas, for my tastes, their fragrances are... 'curious'.
    Today I used Wild Oranges which really smell lihe a fresh orange, squeezed with its peel.
    However, notwithstanding I like citrus fragrances, I do not too a defined food smell: tangerine, coffee, hamburger and fries...
    As I would not enjoy eating something smelling like lavender!

    But, all in all, a really sumptuous shave!


    Sapone PS: Valobra Glicerolanolina
    Sapone: Meißner Tremonia, Wild Oranges
    Pennello: L.V. Senna, ST 24

    Henri et Victoria Cognac & Cuban Cigars today. 20 seconds to load the Henri et Victoria High Mountain White brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Vintage Gillette Platinum Plus still in the Gillette Slim. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with Burberry Brit aftershave.

    More than satisfied with the Uomo SHD Silvertip. Used the Rex/Polsilver from 5 to 3.5 with excellent results. Love the Apricus!
