How's the scent on the ETHOS, Karl? Do you use some lavender splash to enhance it?

Cadman Custom - Monsavon - Triceratops 3D by Roger Quintero - GEM SSC #2 - Electrif's Bay Rum v2 - Aloe Vera Gel
This second shave confirms the Triceratops as an amazing shaving tool. It has great audio feedback. The comb channels the lather away really well, plus it rinses so easily.
The Monsavon again shows its true colours as a marvelous piece of software.
3 wonderful passes giving a lovely close finish.

L'Occitane Shaving Soap

Fredrick Reynolds 5/8
Family Dollar Spice AS
The L'Occitane Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Fredrick Reynolds 5/8 straight gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Spice AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

Dolce & Gabbana The One eau de parfum
A real good shave this morning. The Taiga is arguably one of the best if not the best modern adjustable made. Plus, it’s the only adjustable today with an interchangeable base plate from straight bar to open comb. It gives flawless, smooth and super close shaves everytime without any fear of one cutting or nicking themselves. Design and shave geometry is near perfection. A fabulous shaver that exudes elite quality and premium feel. A great day and shaves to all....
Thank you Brit!

Bull Dog Moisturizer
Aqua Velva Musk AS Splash
The Minora blade really turned dull this morning but it still gave me one last hurrah by leaving me very comfortably BBS from three passes - this is one of two blade brands which last longer than a week with my tough beard. I’m really enjoying the scent of the Shark Dive soap now, it lathers beautifully, the slickness gives fabulous blade glide as well as a wonderful postshave sensation. The Bull Dog moisturizer is super soothing, and the Aqua Velva Musk not only smells lovely, (my wife doesn’t think so!) it also feels nice and cooling on my skin. What a delightful shave this was!
Be well and safe!
