    Well I am of The North...so why not some CBL Iron Throne to start the day! I can’t get over this scent and the soap performs beautifully. I don’t have the scent notes for it but there are juniper berries in It with some smoke and subtle leather. You have to use your own nose for this one. It has a couple of cooling agents in there and they are just enough to throw a chill without any heavy menthol.

    Continuing on with the trio today we have the 1956 Gillette Flare Tip Super Speed. Middle of the road between Blue and Red but a very fine shaver and the standard by which many a Super Speed was made. Loaded up with a Gillette Rubie.

    Beautiful three pass BBS shave which was capped off with an icy blast of Duke Cannon Supply Co. Ice Cold Balm. A little Bvlgari Man to finish off and we are ready for Friday and the long weekend. August approaches....and of course Winter is Coming....
