    I haven't used River Rouge in a while, and it did not disappoint. Close, comfortable shave with a great scent. The splash is excellent as well.

    Sunday morning:

    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Rapira day 7
    Stirling Frozen Tundra SS
    Prep ASB
    Osage Rub AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Either my technique is the best or it was a miracle because the Rapira blade really crapped out on the second pass, yet I still managed to get a great BBS shave. This Frozen Tundra is Stirling’s second coldest soap after the Glacials. I would rate it around an 8/10 on my personal menthol scale so it’s pretty damned strong. Its scent is very lekker - it’s a blend of peppermint, wintergreen, with earthy notes and its lather is so rich as well as SLICK so you get terrific blade glide and such a perfect soothing sensation in addition to the freeze. The Prep, together with the Rubby Dubby Doo prolonged that sensation beautifully. No complaints whatsoever about this shave - despite the blade being kaput it was fabulous!

    Have a nice Sunday![​IMG]

    And an update.....the aftershave is OK...good news is that I avoided the Niagra Falls effect this time. I suppose more good news is that it feels good on my face and neck. The Unfortunate news-no noticeable scent. I thought there might be from sniffing the contents, but very little showed up. Aaaah, I'll hang on to it...not much in there anyway.

    Lollll This soap’s scent reminds me somewhat of the Glacial Wintergreen although not as intense. The menthol sensation is very strong and it doesn’t take long to kick in.

    It was listed on IB's deal of the day and as I was ordering some other items I threw it in the cart.

    Lathers up easily. Nice cushion and glide. Not sure the scent would please everyone. Very and I mean very citrusy. Almost Juicey Fruit chewing gum sweet to my nose. Not offensive but it's there.

    Here's the blurb from IB's site.

    Scent: An old customer once told me of a shaving soap he use to buy at a barber in Rome, it had a refreshing scent of Neroli and Bergamot and every time he used it back in the USA, it reminded him of blissful early morning summertime shaves, when he was an expat journalist living in Rome, Italy. This splash is a refreshing blend of Neroli and Bergamot, with a unique 'twang' that will put a zip in your step!

    Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Aqua (Water/Eau), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Hydroxide, Hydrogenated Lanolin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea)Butter, Fragrance(Parfum), Argania Spinosa (Argan)Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Extract(Aloe), Sodium Carbonate, Citral, Limonene, Linalool.

    Oh wow....not what I would have expected by the name. I thought there'd be a solid coffee scent, as there is a coffee with that same name. Thanks.

    The peppermint part is what got to me. Maybe the peppermint is the reason is isn't as intense as Glacial Wintergreen(as you say).
