Got this from a friend for Xmas.

My first soap! 2 funny that I was going to be cutting out Proraso so I could try some more of the upper echelon creams, but so be it. I'm a Proraso guy! :biggrin:

Fresh delivery from the Factory.

re-stocking.
The blue box is a box for private use it contains 500 blades.
100 packs. (actual product from Sharp )
I was counting on a different product this wont do me good because the box is too big to ship at a reasonable price.

Teracotta handle Super Badger Brush
SCS Ginger Lime Soap
SCS Bay Rum Soap
SCS Coconut Soap
SCS Shea Butter and Avocado SC.

The brush is interesting........REALLY soft and supplied through ebay by a Mr Sabini who informed me that it was made in the same factory as Olde Apothecary brushes which I believe are made by Rooney.

Today I went to Metz (East of France +- 60 km from my home) and by chance, found a place where you can buy Merkur DE +plus blades! Happy to know that I can go there in the futur. Bought also 2 packs of Bic Metal in a French supermarket as It's hard to find BM here in Luxembourg. I also Bought cologne called Masculin acier by Bourjois reaallly nice! I'll post a pick of all my new acquisitions asap!!

Mama Bear Score! Can't wait to try the Aftershave Milk and Tuscan Memories :drool: And, these body soaps look fantastic. I actually just used the "Issy" Soap to wash my hands :thumbsup: Mama Bear is too classy to say so, but this stuff is da BOMB!!! Wow, I have NEVER used a soap that has left my skin feeling this conditioned. Unbelievable. I have tried a literal boatload of bath soaps in my life and I have never experienced anything like this. Guys - do yourself a favor and add a bar or three of this to your next order. Before I buy her out!!!!

Excuse my boldness....I am just very serious about this soap.

Em's Place....doesn't get a lot of mention around here, but the curiosity got the best of me:

I took your name off of it because it is not exactly the same anymore... I am ordering some spearmint.. I didn't have enough for this batch and I added peppermint, but it does not smell the same. It is just Tuscan Memories now... BUT, when I get more of the spearmint in, I am determined to duplicate it... it will just take a little time.

Who would have known how good that would turn out to be.. I HAVE to duplicate it. it is still good.. just not AS good, you know??

Got it from eBay: a vintage John Jay straight razor. It's in better shape than I was expecting. :drool: I also got a old Clauss SR, but it's not quite as fetching.

This is probably the wrong place to ask, but are there honemeisters on this forum who might want to help me get these shave-ready?
