    CK Escape perfumed by:
    Steve Demercado

    Razor - OneBlade "Genesis" V2
    Blade - [​IMG] *3rd Shave
    Brush - Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements "The Green Ray" Faux Horse Hair
    Shave Soap - Abbate Y La Mantia "Isacco"
    Aftershave - Proraso "Menthol & Eucalyptus"
    Post-Shave Balm - Advanced Clinicals Anti-aging Hyaluronic Acid Cream
    Deodorant - Native "Eucalyptus & Mint"
    Fragrance - Calvin Klein "Escape for Men"

    This will be the first shave with the Isacco shaving soap. I have had this sitting around for around two years. It was a failed attempt to scent match a soap to Costume National Homme. But I always thought is smelled great. I already had CK Escape on deck for tomorrow and I remembered this soap and thought, hey, I wonder how this would work with Escape? And after smelling both I think this will work find. I almost went with plain Jane Proraso, which pairs with Escape, but I wanted a more sweet/fruity bend in the soap scent and this fit the bill. I want to experience this shaving soap first without any pre-shave because I've heard/read that this shaving soap is high quality. We'll find out how it goes with the OneBlade razor.

    I've been addicted to the Old Spice since I was a little kid. My father, grandfather, and uncle would use it. My mother bought me the Old Spice when I first started shaving. Heck, even bought me the underarm deodorant before I started shaving. Old Spice reminds me of home. My brothers use it too.

    Thank goodness we finally have something to talk about during the waiting time avoiding embarrassing silences that embarrassing silences wouldn’t be if people didn’t think they were: what’s embarrassing about keeping quiet, thinking about own’s business, doing a little simplistic introspection and meditating on the purpose of life?

    But there is always the need to express your deepest thoughts with meaningful phrases:
    "Noticed the heat?"
    -No, I was distracted. Excuse me…-
    "But it’s not so much the heat as the humidity"

    Good! Finally, both the heat and the humidity have arrived, taking us out of the doubts.

    But I admit that sometimes I feel involved and I reply with sentences of the same meaning.
    -Glad there’s a floor underneath us!-
    Some people get a puzzled expression and I feel compelled to explain
    -Otherwise we’d sink all the way to China…-

    Curiously, often, the perplexed expression increases and I feel morally obliged to explain further: ‘I felt obliged to say a banality too’.

    Maybe a friend of mine was right when he said it was lucky I hadn’t gotten into the Diplomatic Service… He claimed that we would also go to war with the Vatican.

    But coming to what you’re all anxiously waiting for, here’s the obviousness of the day: ‘My shaving was great!’
    With that gear, what surprise could there have been?
