    Thanks Doug. Sorry so late. The Creeper has been very enjoyable. Tried using the Rabid Banana cube pre-shave to add a bit more tropical scents and it mixes well with the Coconut.

    The Black Magic scent comes the closest to smelling like Creed's Selection Verte fragrance. The Creed scent has a bit more of a zest of citrus on the top. I got very lucky to find Shannon's Black Magic. I didn't want a tallow soap, so she was kind enough to sell me some of the fragrance oil and I handed it over to Kevin of Country Club for Men and he used his vegan soap formula with the scent. It was really cool back then when Kevin was still in business making shaving products. He helped me with a few of my unique shaving sets. I was very wise at the time for making large orders and then sealing all of the products in vaccum-packed plastic to ensure I would have a decade or two of these great shaving sets.

    I do not know if i got your question right...
    I understand you want to know what Gillette means in French.
    If it is so, it seems it means... Gillette. :D
    Just a name!
    And it seems not to be French!

    So, do not burn in rage your mother's dictionary! ;)

    Started as a routine shave, I made a discovery: the yellow SOCs, SharpEdge, are better than I remembered. But this time I used them on Progress which I think is what made the difference.
    In fact, afterwards, I felt a stress on the skin, but definitely negligible. However, Super Stainless, on my epidermis, give a better result.
    Despite the sunny day, I used an almond cream, but delicate and incredibly performing: three turns in the bowl, and it was ready to lather like a cheated wife!
    In fact, to date, it is the only soap I have finished.

    The AccaKappa doesn't have a very intense scent and that's probably why it's my favorite almond, it has a very fine texture, like Fitjar's and an excellent smoothness. And the post shave is also very good.
    If I didn't like to rub things on my face afterwards, I wouldn't even need the after shave.

    And I used Dunhill again today: the day is sunny, but it's really cool!

    Today is the last day of SEptember. I was able to use a different SE razor for each of its 30 days. Up for the challenge today is my Razorock Black Hawk.

    The Williams Mug Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #414 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with The Razorock Black Hawk razor with a Feather Professional blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Old Spice. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Today’s trial with the TAH was a fine Damaskeene that gets underused. It provided a most wonderful smooth shave that was deceptively mild in feel. Heaven... :love055: Oh yeah, the adjustable handle. Fortunately this time I remembered to try lengthening it and quickly found that my first instinct was right. I extended it out a quarter inch or so and found that length to be just right - about 3.25” total. That’s a good .75” longer than the standard Damaskeene handle. For whatever reason it just made the handle comfortable and something that no longer stood out or distracted from the shave - it just disappeared into the background.

    There was, however, a little drama. As was seen in my experience with the Wabbit, I’m not particularly adept when it comes to small objects and I ended up chasing an adaptor screw down the sink. Yikes :shocked003: It’s a good thing that I have a little more time with Tom’s Adjustable Handle - hopefully I can lean on Tom’s goodwill and have some replacement ones sent so I can forward it on with all parts ready when the time comes. Please, pretty please? :pri:
