    E2215224-3BE6-421C-96A3-E2AAA407F257.jpeg Happy Wednesday! Halfway to the weekend and hopefully all downhill from here. Cold and grey and so a little scent happiness was in order. B&M Seville always brightens up my day so it was called upon today with its matching AS.

    I am on a run of Brit Gillette razors and so today fell to the more than capable Rocket HD 500. I am quite pleased I picked this one up and was lucky to find a minty one cased for a decent price. It has never let me down and when loaded with a Feather blade it is shaving bliss.

    Lovely shave this morning and quite relaxing. Topped it off with some Coach for Men and off to the races we go. Enjoy the day and stay safe!

    I may have to backtrack on these being the same after couple of hours later. The shave is still much closer than the 46 - ?? Ranger. The only thing that might be skewing that is when I used the Ranger I did it with a days growth, the super speed I shaved the day prior. I am going to skip today and use the razor again to confirm.

    Don't remember now. There was a reason I kept this super speed and sold my rangers and milords from 40/41 and 46/48 originally. This other Ranger was a newer acquisition. Another couple of days and 2 more shaves will probably jar the memory as to why.
