    I'll bet it was you who ordered the last Boat Drinks soap before it became marked "sold out". :). I'm sure it'll be back sometime.

    I'll say this about the Sophisticate fragrance(I have the bath soap, but use it only as a hand-soap)...whenever I wash my hands, the scent blows away the rest of my bathroom. I get a strong Sandalwood/Vanilla scent. Quite manly. Quite "sophisticate"d. :).

    You're bound to get some keepers out of that list, prob a bunch of them. And they last a long time. Have fun!

    Tuesday, July 21, 2020:
    Razor: Merkur 39C Slant Bar
    Blade: Personna Red
    Brush: WCS Beacon Silvertip Badger
    Pre-shave: Proraso Green Tea and Oat
    Soap/Cream: Stirling Executive Man
    AS: Stirling Executive Man AS and Nivea Cooling Post Shave Balm

    Really like the scent of Executive Man. Sixteen hours after the shave, I can still slightly smell the aftershave. Makes wearing a mask a little more pleasant :).

    Thanks, I’m sure I will find a number of keepers out of this batch! According to the tracking info I should receive the package by Friday, but who knows if that’s accurate these days...

    Either way, I look forward to the many fantastic shaves to come!

    @Boojum1 I love your avatar. My to oldest boys (soon to be 8 and 2) recently discovered Shaun the Sheep and we probably watch it on a daily basis just for some giggles.

    Looks like you'll eventually have them all(as samples). Go for Haverford tonight :).

    Just finished my shave with Haverford, and it was fantastic! Beautiful smell - reminded me of a fancy boutique Dr. Pepper scent actually! Lather was wonderful as always, and it was the first time I’ve used a soap without pure white lather.

    thanks for the suggestion, Paul!

    Finished off a tub of Glacial Lemony Orange tonight. This thread was the impetus for Rod to bring that scent back for a brief run. I really enjoy the menthol kick of the glacial soaps in the summer. Refreshing each and every use.

    With just a few exceptions, any of their aftershaves can be glacialed.

    Some nice looking dopp kits as well. Not in the budget at this moment, but I'll be grabbing one of these soon, I think.
