Kilt day!! :em2400: :em17: :em2300:

C&E BBB
HBS Bay Rum SS :thumbup1:
Thayer's Rose WH
Proraso ASB
Pinaud Clubman Talc (mostly chest and lower neck)
Pinaud Bay Rum AS - Splashed on chest
SCS B&B Bay Rum w/ a Twist EdT

That HBS bay rum soap is amazing! All of the HBS soaps lather so incredibly well (almost cushoins to the point of TOBS Avocado...though not quite THAT much cushion), really slick. Honeybee Sue's bay rum scent choice is AMAZING...very "pure" spiciness.

Once again, the pinaud bay rum splash followed by the SCS BRWAT is a great combo. Very nice!

Now here is a REAL MAN!

I'll have to try the soap/cream combo. I love my Castle Forbes!

The combo is great if you want bay rum without the "tingle"/discomfort of the direct essential oil. I prefer my bay rum shaves to be more on the lime side, but the MB soap alone is fabulous. The two compliment the St. John's but the sillage would be crushed by an application of Pinaud Bay Rum.

Olive oil soap, brand unknown, as a pre-shave
KMF Mint Shave Cream
Gillette 1956 Blue Tip razor with Personna blade
Dickinson's Witch Hazel
Proraso ASB

First time using the Blue Tip and I am very happy with it. No nicks, no irritation and BBS all the way, baby!

Look good, feel good and smell good. Despite the rotten weather predicted for all this week, great shaves will make for a great week.

Ron,

By corker, do you mean you corked an ASRCO blade? If so, does it make a difference? I have corked a Merkur Blade and a Personna blade and seemed to have good results. No nicks. I don't know if corking even on these mild blades is real, or just something in my head.

Hi Dave,
Yes I have corked it.:wink2: I promised myself that after two weeks of injector twin blade shaving I would cork a DE blade and give it a spin. This run really isn't a comparison or head to head as much as a validation, i.e. I am using a new razor and a brand of blade that I haven't used for some time.
Without wishing to state unequivocally Boy this is the greatest thing since sliced bread and the Hershey Bar, the blade seems smooth. I formerly was able to get seven decent shaves from an ASRCO. We shall see how well a corker lasts the week. To refresh my memory I will probably load an uncorked ASRCO and see how that compares in the 1904 next week..:ihih:

In order to get an extra half-hour of sleep this morning I passed on shaving aside from a healthy splash of Em's Minty Menthol. However, again where is the menthol?

I'm hoping my TGQ sampler pack arrives in the mail today as I have aspirations of shaving with the desert ironwood for the first time tomorrow morning.

I had two soaps that had no soap left in the center but only on the edges so I decide to melt them down. I used Surrey soap and Williams mug soap and melted them down then mixed together and add some Glycerin poured it into a small tea cup let it stand for a week. I had an excellent shave today. The mix was super slick and the shave was BBS.

I was pretty darned cranky this morning. It's as hot as heck around here in the Boston area this week. The kids were up A LOT last night. Got poked by SWMBO at 5:30 AM and was informed I would be installing the air conditioners before leaving for work. Layered on top of that was riding out two late night, West Coast Sox games with less than stellar results. Granted they still have the best record in MLB and they are still ahead of the Yanks by 10+ games but that is still too close for my comfort!

The cure: SOTD

After lugging A/C's up & downstairs for an hour and bolting them to the windows:

Pulled out the green tube Proraso out of the closet for the first time this year.
Merkur 38C. This might be THE ONE, haven't really used any others since I got this thing.
2006 B&B Silvertip brush

Hi Dave,
Yes I have corked it.:wink2: I promised myself that after two weeks of injector twin blade shaving I would cork a DE blade and give it a spin. This run really isn't a comparison or head to head as much as a validation, i.e. I am using a new razor and a brand of blade that I haven't used for some time.
Without wishing to state unequivocally Boy this is the greatest thing since sliced bread and the Hershey Bar, the blade seems smooth. I formerly was able to get seven decent shaves from an ASRCO. We shall see how well a corker lasts the week. To refresh my memory I will probably load an uncorked ASRCO and see how that compares in the 1904 next week..:ihih:

Ron,

One reason I keep shying away from using my injector razors is the harsh feel and the nicks I get from the CVS blades for the first few shaves. I have also thought about corking those blades to see if that helps, and may try it next week. If corking a CVS blades equals the joy of a Hershey Bar, I will be one happy camper. :wink:

Best to you.

My sample pack from Colleen at The Gentleman's Quarter arrived yesterday afternoon and all I can say is WOW to the scents that came charging out of the box when I unsealed it! The EdC are test samples that she is working on but which are not ready for sale because she is still trying to get packaging issues resolved. The leatherneck scent is very interesting, almost like a much more complex Old Spice but very adult and long lasting. I can still smell the scent from the soap & EdC five hours after I finished shaving! The soap was very slick, clean and performed like a champ.

All started with a nice dream followed by a hot shower.
Woke up this morning couldnt wait to shave . so I put on some music , made my self a cup of coffee jumped in a HOT shower then pulled out my AOS #3 some wild rose and my HD loaded with a new feather. Took my sweet time as I was not in a rush at all this morning and had the best shave of my life. Baby's are now saying they want a butt as smooth as my face . :shaving:

That right there is the shaving set up of Darth Vader.... if he could shave! :scared:

Excellent photo!

he doesn't need to shave, just the Plisson and some black boot polish ...

Me? I whipped up some nice lather with a B&B silvertip and SCS Fairway soap, scraped it off twice with a Wade & Butcher chopper, and then whammo with the Aqua Velva. :scared:

Home Alooooooooooooooooooooooooone!!

ah, cooling .............

then some Pinaud Clubman hair tonic, and a spritz of Blenhiem Bouquet to finish it off.

Have not read the review, undefined numbers make me giggle.. BUT, Estos productos son ambos excelentes. Están de la calidad que usted espera de Penhaligons. The flash of yellow, blue and red stripes on the tubes is almost as dizzying as the fragrance.. :001_tt1:

¡Habla español! Y muy bien por cierto. Thanks for the reply. I've been literally drooling over the Douro line for a few months, but the one shop in Madrid where they have Penhaligon's products doesn't have Douro, and I've been waiting for one month since I ordered it there. Perhaps I should just cancel it and get it directly from Pen's website...

Now with the SOTD:

40's Gillette Superspeed w/IP blade (day 4)
Vulfix #2233 Super
Tabac shaving soap
Old Spice aftershave

Scent:
To complete the tobacco themed shave, I dipped into my precious supply of Aramis Havana. :w00t: A deliciously good pairing but it has left me really wanting my pipe at work! :001_rolle

Thoughts:
The KMF worked nicely as a pre-shave that I washed off before applying the TGQ Cavendish Black soap. This is my first time using this particular soap and it has a much more mellow scent than the Leatherneck that I used yesterday. I was really hyped to use this soap but it does not smell like any of my pipe tobaccos so it came across as a bit foreign smelling to my nose. A great soap, but I am not sure if it lives up to the description hype in Colleen's .pdf document of her offerings. I'm going to keep trying the sample out and hopefully my nose will start to get the finer points of the scent into some sort of reasonable scent map. However, in honor of today being a tobacco themed day I went with a light spritz of Aramis Havana and mmmmmmmm YUM I smell good! :c2: :em2300: :em17:

Either I am getting better at shaving or the Merkur blade I am using has reached the point in dullnes that I can wield it with impunity - but I got a no nick BBS without even trying!! I did an ATG rinsed then applied straight soap to the face (no lathering) and did an XTG pass. Then just a little touch up on two trouble spots and I was done. Today will be a good day.
