    Beautiful photo, Celestino. I have been paying attention to your soaps lately, and you use a lot of MacDuff's. You inspired me to give one a go. I just ordered a tub of the Prairie Blooms. To go with its Lilac Profile, I also picked up a vintage bottle of Lilac Vegetal. :happy036:

    I’ve got a soft spot for Lucite handles. That’s good looking, James. Do you have any other photos?

    The soap is very good imo. It's gives an excellent, slick lather. I don't know what the scent notes are supposed to be, but it smells like coconut to me. I don't think it's supposed to, but I like it.

    West Coast Shaving No.1 Gatsby
    has a cologne like scent to me. I'm glad I purchased it.
    I've seen WCS has a V2 Gatsby with added citrus and skin friendly ingredients. I haven't seen any reviews on it.

    Early morning shave,

    A wonderful performance from the Franken-razor/Dorco Prime Platinum duo to finish my shaving week off & month off on a high note.

    My main highlights of the month have been my Reacquaintance with Ming Shi 2000s Futur clone & Dorco Prime Platinum blade both have performed superbly throughout the month. Throughout June I will be returning to my Parker razor collection using the Parker Adjustable Injector & Variant for my combined face & head shaves and various other Parker DE razors for my face shaves paired together with the Treet Platinum DE blades.

    A comfortable 2 pass + pick ups silky smooth shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing the shave off with a few small dollops of Nivea Men Replenishing PSB.

    My face is feeling cool smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Keep safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
