    Australian no 15 ' (3rd gen Aristocrat '48-49)/BIC/MDC. While I prefer a razor with more blade feel this offers very impressive performance for a mild razor. I probably could have arrived at BBS on my head with a second pass but opted for pick ups with the Old Type-Vibraz. Great shave.[​IMG]

    Hembree Not as pretty smelling

    Essence by Tedelus razor
    Feather Pro Guard blade (2)
    Simpsons shave soap
    Simpson T3 Trafalgar

    What a way to end the month! I started out with some straights and shifted over to shavettes in anticipation for the Essence. This is the 3rd shave with the Essence and it is getting better.

    The T3 whipped up some nice lather this morning. Jim @jluc PIFed this to me when I purchased his Razorock Hawk. The generosity of this group is just amazing.

    I really enjoy the Pro Guard blade over a DE. The Pro Guard does an excellent job and just leaves my face feeling better. I completed two passes on the cheeks and three on the neck. I'm as smooth as possible. I did have one mishap and the Pro Guard saved the day. I set down wrong on my right cheek and felt it dig in. The area developed two small dots of blood but nothing to even mention. The motions with the Essence are becoming more natural and the razor is a joy to use. The alum had just a little feedback but overall it was an excellent shave.

    I have really enjoyed this month trying to learn new skills but most of all I have enjoyed the friendship of this group.

    Ya'll are the best if the best!

    Take care everyone

    Razor - Plisson/Joris "Odyssey"
    Blade - [​IMG] *2nd
    Shave Brush - Gentleman's Hangar Synthetic (Wood-stained to match bowl)
    Shave Stand by Robert Evans on Etsy. Must request custom project to order.
    Shave Soap - Mama Bear's "Bounty"
    Pre-shave Oil - Lather & Wood "unscented"

    Post-Shave Balm - Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements "Mysterium Serum"
    Deodorant - HeartJCreations "Eau Royale" (*custom scent not available)
    Fragrance - Creed Royal Water

    This is really awesome for Summer. Yeah, the scent has an almost "old fashioned" bend to it, but it's like a fancier Acqua di Parma Colonia/Eau Sauvage type of scent. A bit crisp, but very refreshing. This is my favorite lemon-centered fragrance.

    Sweet, i think more bay leaf than spice/clove. Which is the opposite that i like. I like clove/spice like Pinaud Virgin Island Bay rum which i love.

    Is it a "cream/soap" like the Rocky Mtn. Barber one I have? Actually, my RMBC is a "cream" but it's in a tub with the handle, perhaps just like the Simpson's?
