    One of my favorite scents with new labels! The performance met the usual excellence of B-M, and the balm was very soothing.

    The Tabac Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #433 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Cobra Classic Razor with a Feather Professional Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Tuesday morning:

    Hot shower
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Junjie/Shark day 7
    MSC Vintage Spice SS
    CutiBase Moisturizer
    MSC Vintage Spice AS Splash

    When the Shulton Old Spice soap and aftershave were discontinued a few years ago I was very sad because I loved them so much but Fernando recreated the gorgeous fragrance and great performance with his Vintage Spice. This soap is tallow based, the lather is magnificent, the slickness is fantastic, the scent is EXACTLY the same as the Shulton Old Spice, and the skincare is perfect. The CutiBase moisturizer is unscented, it works so well as a balm, and the Vintage Spice aftershave is witch hazel based so there’s no burning or stinging from it, and the scent is heavenly - not only that, it lasts all day. What a brilliant three pass BBS work of art this was!

    Be well and safe!

    Tuesday shave

    Lather: PAA CK-6 Scentsless
    Brush: PAA Green Ray
    Razor: Edwin Jagger DE 89
    Blade: Dorco ST-301
    After: PAA Mysterium Serum
    Cold water shave

    Got a great cold lather from the PAA soap and brush. Second shave with the Dorco blade. Not a bad blade, it's reasonably smooth, reasonably sharp, but I guess I like something a bit sharper. Perhaps it would do better in a more aggressive razor. There are so many blades to try that I am ready to move on to something else tomorrow. This blade has been retired to the bin.

    The PAA Mysterium Serum balm is very good: fragrance-free, menthol-free, alcohol-free, and very soothing. That may sound boring if you enjoy a bracing after shave experience, but my face likes this.

    Great 2 pass shave, that left me BBS. For a modern made straight razor, this one is one of the greats.

    Razor- Gipson "Alvaro". By Andrey Shpakovskiy.
    Brush- @oscar11 special, with a synthetic knot.
    Soap- AOS Kingsman, Bourbon scented.
    Aftershave- Vintage Avon Spicy

    I travel for work a lot, so this is my basic travel setup:
    Omega synthetic S brush
    Edwin jagger on Weber bulldog handle
    My homemade shave soap grated and pressed into a shave stick
    Citrus musk aftershave
    Gillette silver blue blade, my go to blade.

    Nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. 16516187797623630354058268474739.jpg
