    Saturday SOTN

    Back to an Ogallala Bay Rum and Sandalwood shave tonight. I can't help it... It smells so good and performs so well! A very comfortable and close shave with the Ikon Deluxe OC and a brand new Voskhod blade. I am smooth and smell great for bed. Happy Sunday all!

    Nice cool tonight and the Fitjar Slåtterøy cream matched my emotional state of a grayish dawn, as I imagine a Nordic one.

    The texture is very soft, enveloping, and the fragrance is pleasant. It does not have a definite fragrance and has not awakened "memories of when sailors returned home with mysterious gifts" (I think it is a metaphor for saying they sneaked in loads of drugs!).

    His "woody lemoniness", for me, is well suited to the woody citrusy of the Biancamenta and the Cologne Water 4711.


    Sapone PS: Valobra Glicerolanolina
    Sapone: Fitjar Slåtterøy Crema
    Pennello: L.V. BeeHave Yourself, Radica/Silvertip 24
    Rasoio: Maggard, MR 8
    Lametta: Feather
    AS 1: MilMil, Figaro Gel
    AS 2: Biancamenta
    EdT: 4711, Acqua di Colonia
    ST: Ray Charles, strumentale.

    Shave Soap - The Gentleman's Groom Room Limited Edition Essence of Scotland "Malt N Myrtle"
    Deodorant - Pinaud Clubman *dusting powder
    Fragrance/Aftershave - Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve

    It took a while to figure out what aftershave to pair with this special soap, but I decided on Pinaud's Special Reserve. Seems to be the only aftershave/fragrance (in my collection anyway) that somewhat pairs with this wonderful smelling soap. I've written the company that makes this and asked them to make a matching aftershave. So far it looks unlikely. The scent is really great. I highly recommend this soap, if only to have a very original, authentic regional scent in a shaving soap. It will be my first shave with it. It's tough to wait until the morning.

    ***EDIT - By the way. I just have to say that this shaving soap's scent is what shaving soap scents are all about. It kills me that they don't have a splash of this amazing scent (although Pinaud Special Reserve is serviceable in this role as a complimentary splash). If you don't have this shaving soap you're missing out. It's one of the best small-house scent's I've come across. Masculine scent x10++ It's a 'must-own' and I never say that about anything, but it is nonetheless.

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Jeeves of Hudson Street Shave Soap face lathered well with the Jayaruh #369 Synthetic brush. I did one pass with the J.A. Henckels Lather Catcher razor with a J.A. Henckels Wedge blade and finished up with my new Personna injector with a Personna blade for a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Pinaud Clubman AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    413FA824-0338-4174-B20F-64F99ED8B9A0.jpeg Sunday morning:

    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Astra Green
    Chabrawichi 555 SC
    Lubriderm Moisturizer
    Chabrawichi 555 Cologne

    I found this Chabrawichi cream last night in my daughter’s room when I went to look for a book of hers and I had completely forgotten that I had this stuff. Like the matching cologne it’s Egyptian-made and it’s got a very nice lemony/lavender scent with good lather. The skincare is decent, but not as good as other creams from Egypt so I had to put on quite a bit of Lubriderm moisturizer to relieve the slight feeling of dryness. The matching cologne is very refreshing and it works well as an aftershave. The new Astra Green made my BBS mission so easy to accomplish!

    Went with a Fatboy this morning.
    Good shave as I expected. I never try for a BBS, but close and comfortable with no irritation is a win in my book! IMG_20190630_084544_807.jpg
