I look forward to shaves like this. It brings me back to when I was a kid. My father, grandfather, and uncle used this magic fragrance. It was my first AS and EdC when I was 11. It reminds me of good food, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years, and every day in between. To me, this is what family love smells like on the male side.

A relaxing Boots Shaving product trio Sunday morning shave.
After the close shave with my parker variant yesterday the mild, yet efficient enough Ming Shi 3000s made my Sunday morning shave a pleasurable experience.
The humble Boots shave stick provided a slick protective lather in a short space of time leaving a superb post shave feel to my face.
Another wonderful 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report...Finishing the shave off with a small dollop of Boots ~ Freshwood ASB.
My face is feeling silky smooth & smelling divine.
Stay safe, and enjoy sunday ladies & gentlemen.

It is some "work" to get Info Straight Razor shaving but it makes fun, so that's the most important point.
Stay safe and stay healthy
Have a great Sunday
Classy set up, Joseph!
Since today is a holiday, we are stuck at home and I am retired, there was plenty of time to do a test, after yesterday's one of pairing two soaps, I wanted to add the 3P to the De Vergulde Hand, but I proceeded in a different way.
I used the DVH as a stick, comme d'habitude, and I started to lather the 3P in the bowl, ending up in the face.
The shave came out very well which did not surprise me: both soaps had given each one good results, but my hopes were dashed. I was hoping that the scent of Dutch soap could be felt much more...
The gray day allowed me to enjoy the saudade of Chet Baker: a very decent beginning of the day...

The Arko Shave Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #220 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the 1902 Superior Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Aqua Velva Iced Blue AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Dragonsbeard V2 shave soap
Dragonsbeard V2 skin food splash
Dragonsbeard Eau de Parfum
As good as good can be. Excellent performing soap and scent with a splash that works wonderfully together. The edp is the virtual cherry on top with a dark oriental & fougere type vibe with a tinge of sweetness. As Manly as a Man can get with class and sophistication. The KAI & Merica razor were superb in performance with just a nice little bump in feel and efficiency. Great, great shave. A wonderful day and shaves to all...
Veddy nice looking setup. That razor looks great on that handle!!
