    After last nights hot shower, I felt like it was the perfect time to rid myself of four day’s growth. After a day outside in the cold fall air, Pumpkin Spice seemed like the perfect choice. It was!

    I had a short time until bed, so I let the delicious fragrance of the soap carry itself. My pillow would smell like Pumpkin Spice until the next laundry day if I’d used the splash.

    Today our family went for a morning walk through town. The sun was out, but the temperature was mid-40’s. Definitely fall. I splashed on a little Ozark Mountain before heading out the door. I kept silently congratulating myself during the walk. OM has some strength, and a cold breeze didn’t slow it down. And the scent was spot on for a walk through the leaves while watching the squirrels scramble for their pre-winter calories.

    I can’t wear OM every day (I could shave with it though), but on the “right” days, it’s great to have on standby.

    Ozark Mountain is a wonderful scent. Reminds me of the holidays and I’ll use it a lot next month. The aftershave is certainly powerful. Nice post!

    After 10 years of wet shaving and collecting over 160 soaps, Stirling is still in my top 5 soapmakers. Amazing stuff especially when you factor in the price.
