    I recall reading a review of Stirling for Him on the Stirling website. The reviewer was almost derogatory, claiming SfH was Blu relabeled. Hmmmph! Same family, no doubt, but Stirling relabeling? You gotta be kidding.

    FWIW gang, I have every intention of making a hoarding binge purchase of Stirling for Him next time Rod whips up a batch. You have been warned.

    Update on longevity of Dirty South. Also similar to Blu.

    I also used a couple of spritzes of Sandpiper EdT this morning. I have sample bottles of Sandpiper, Piacenza, and Dunshire, but today was the first use of any of them. Very nice!

    Hi all,

    My apologies for me absence over the last month or so (hope I can get caught up). Been pretty busy. Not sure if anyone here knows, but September has been dubbed "Stirling September." I'll take ANY excuse to use Stirling lol, so I totally jumped on the band wagon. I've only gotten in 3 shaves and recorded 2, Ramblin Man and Gentleman. Here's a link to last nights shave with a Gentleman, lol

    On the subject of Stoylin reviews, I still see some who continue to write "sent", not "scent".

    I said I don't use splashes anymore lol. As good as Rod's splashes are, I'm not a big fan of alcohol anymore

    Oh, well I couldn't pick up your communicability that well on the splash issue. You then went on to say you just let the soaps handle everything right?

    Stirling Single Edge Shavette September

    It was an all out PiacenzDay Wednesday. We threw the works at it too.

    [​IMG]

    Piacenza shampoo - the Stirling shampoo is all I use any more. Awesome stuff. Wish they had a liquid version.

    My first use of the newly acquired body soap - real soap, not wash. Performance was good, but I probably prefer the bar soap. Also I'm trying to pick up the most glorious stank of the Piacenza, but all I'm getting is a soap smell. After a few minutes I concluded I was smelling Sandalwood, and this container was likely mislabeled. No problem, this will make it easier to get the Lovely Mrs Headroom on board. She uses one of those puff balls which probably work a little better than my terrycloth wash cloth.

    Routine great performance from the economical and awesome Stirling badger.

    Piacenza shave soap convinced me I have no need to commit my Wednesdays to a nostalgic box with some soap bastardized by the manufacturer.

    Went with the Focus R21 Evolution using a GSB for a refresher before my new Focus R28 Slim Al shavette shows up. Great tool, the R21, it will be hard to beat.

    Finished up with the Stirling Piacenza AS splash. Went to the light side since I planned on doing a couple of hits of the EdT as well.

    Also used the Stirling Piacenza deodorant (missed the photo shoot). Fab performance in my experience, long lasting. I could easily speculate that it has been discontinued because it is a more vicious product than most.

    Be well y'all!
