    This was in the mail today:

    A Mühle R41 head, some GEM blades, a soap dish that matches my mug and a few AS samples:

    - Pinaud Clubman
    - Pinaud Special Reserve
    - Lustray Spice
    - Lustray Blue Spice
    - Jeris Musk
    - Floid Vigoroso

    SWMBO has already checked the Aftershaves and I am proud to announce that we agree on a few scents. My and her favorite is the Jeris Musk, followed by the Lustray Blue Spice. Floid is nice as well, but might contain too much menthol for my liking. The two Clubmans ... well ... she politely but firmly declared she'd kick me out it I should ever wear those :shocked003: So it's good that I don't like them that much either.

    So this will be my razor for tomorrow's shave:

    The soap dish and the mug are a nice match. Here you can see how it works. You grate or just press the soap into the dish and if you want you can turn it upside down to prevent the soap from drying out:

    My Eversharp-Schick G1 arrived today. It had the original blade in it. The dispenser has two blades remaining. They will not be used. It cleaned up very well.

    Got my first Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve. From the bottle it reminds me of the smell of fresh grass stuck under the lawn mower. I'm wearing Canoe right now, so I'll save it for tomorrow.

    Edit; Choose not to wait, as this is an aftershave/cologne. Pinaud products tend to start strong, and this one does. It settles to a nice leather scent.
    To quote a review," This is what Indiana Jones smells like"

    First of all, nice haul! It's to bad your wife didn't like the clubman but good thing you didn't love them either.

    My gorlfriend likes the Pinaud original, I have an 16oz bottle so she better haha!

    That's a nice bowl/mug. I really like the combo

    Definitely! I'm pretty excited about this one, the wait from India was a killer. Now I've learned that a couple online vendors sell the replacement blades it might be something I use.
