    Merry Christmas my Stirling brothers.
    I’m visiting family, so I’m keeping my gear list short..........Merkur 34C, Omega Mighty Midget, and CHRISTMAS EVE soap, splash, and balm. How could I possibly use any other scent?! It’s been fantastic, as I already knew it would be. I’ll retire it in a few days so it retains is magic for next Christmas.

    Enjoy time with family, and drive safely. :)

    Added to the collection this Christmas. My brother-in-law, a fellow Threat Level Midnight fan, bought me the Scarn soap, splash, and EdP.

    Many months ago I had a vendor accidentally ship me a sample of Strawberry Bubbly, and I threw it on the shelf and never touched it... until this evening.

    I was trying to think of a fitting Stirling soap to ring in the new year, and decided that a soap named after champagne would fit the bill nicely!

    My wife and I both had a good laugh about it, and the scent really wasn’t all that bad (though we both agreed that it would smell much better on her!).

    Anyhow, just thought I’d share a Stirling related laugh as we say goodbye to a year that could use a few extra laughs!

    Happy New Years!

    It is such a wonderful scent that I use it throughout the year.

    I think I remarked to someone in the Exchange that it sounds like Coniferous on steroids.

    Coniferous is already on steroids.........freshly clobbered trees and crashing a dirt bike on tree farm. Christmas Eve is a MUCH more complex scent, and while there’s a definite evergreen component, it’s quite literally what the home of a well celebrated Christmas smells like. It’s so spot-on that I can’t/won’t use it until I’m ready to start the Christmas season.

    The Stoylin section of my SUPER order came today-a day early. Sheep shave soap and Mtn. Man Bodywash. Doc Ezlovan flipped in an Arkadia hand soap. :)

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/new Astra Green
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill SS
    Stirling Glacial Lemon Chill ASB
    B&M Arctique AS Splash
    Polo Green EdT

    Brrrrrrrrrrrr cold and beautiful - this setup is right up my alley - even the mentholated pre shave soap from Stirling has a good cooling sensation and it’s so moisturizing as well as slick, it does a perfect job of prepping my skin. The Glacial Lemon Chill soap’s scent is delightful, the lather is wonderful, the menthol sensation is so overwhelming, and the skincare is perfect. The matching balm has the same lovely scent and it gives a powerful menthol punch also along with great soothing. The Arctique aftershave must be used very sparingly because it’s so bloody frigid that it can be uncomfortable if you overdo it - the scent is also very nice. I scrapped the 7 AM blade because it was so aggravating yesterday and the new Astra Green helped to give me a shave fit for a king!

    Have a great week - be safe and healthy!

    Looks like I'm on another Stirling acquisition binge. Just got a Dunshire set, Mountain Man soap(I've been using the a/s forever), and just ordered Ice' d coffee. I absolutely love the scent of Dunshire. Not too in your face like traditional Aqua di Gio, but nice clean and subtle!

    Blue or a Deep Blue Sea? And why?

    Others might have more to say, but I have samples of both of those. Neither is very strongly scented to me. I also have the Stirling EDT of Deep Blue Sea and a Classic Match clone EDT of Polo Blue. For me the Deep Blue Sea gets a slight edge

    Thanks. Looks like Blue isn’t even available currently.

    Triumph looks like a winner too. So many great scents. I wish the AS had better face feel, but the price is very reasonable.

    Whatever happened to Rod’s high end razor play?

    I'm still shaving with mine. I have all the Chinese made versions from last years debacle here. I have everything from the USA made version here except for the base plates. They are currently at the laser engraver.
