    My guess is that it is based on the typical color of obsidian glass (black) and that color's relationship with black licorice (even though licorice and anise - the identifying scent of the soap - are not technically the same thing). The good doctor can correct me if I am wrong (I won't be hurt :)).

    Believe me, our winters are colder. Not very much but they are!

    I had fun with it last year...more fun ahead in 2019 for the "2020".

    From Merriam-Webster Dictionary: Obsidian=a dark natural glass formed by the cooling of molten lava.

    I usually watch Stephanie Mead here. Trouble is, most of the time I can't remember a word she said...

    I think Monday I will take a day off from learning the straight razor and get out the glacial lemony orange. Looking at it every day and not being able to use it is killing me.

    Is that a fact? :). Boston needs more female metiorologists, although as I say, the guy I talked about who is calm, professional, and casual is the MAN I like.

    Can't for the life of me figure out what would divert your attention so much? Better start recording my friend. Lol

    My order might get here tomorrow. I'm right on the line between snow/ice mix and rain. Mother Nature might win this round. Better safe than someone getting hurt!

    Well, now that he feels like a new man, she can get him going with Xecutive Man, Sandpiper, SDM Barbershop, etc...

    After a few more hand-washes at the sink, I'll be ready to put the Baker St. bath soap up. (Finishing up with my usual Block Soap for now).

    Very happy to get my own order in yesterday. Kaboom bath soap smells great, very happy that I bought that set for my Dad. Stirling One has a nice scent as well. SWMBO absolutely loves Deep Blue Sea! She wants it to be my next shave, so much for Island Man. I don't know why I plan my shaves anymore, but then again who am I to disappoint such a beautiful lady. Happy shaving all!

    Got a bath soap order in on Friday. Three bars of Stirling Green, one of Stirling One, and one of British Leather. Got out the British Leather yesterday and used it in the shower. I certainly get the leather scent but there's also a nice smoky element (at least to my nose). Nice, masculine scent.

    Stirling One smells great and I already knew I liked Stirling Green (hence buying three bars).

    Is the BL "smoke" scent more along the lines of "gun" or "pipe/cigar"?

    More like wood smoke or camp fire to me, but I could be totally wrong.

    Oh, I forgot that kind!! I had the bad experience with the tobacco scent put out by Gents(forgot the name), time to move on to wood and gun next(,

    Very good, especially since we've been talkinabout its origin and what is exactly is.

    The Baker Street "handsoap" is up and running at my sink. Nice scent :).
