Can + Worms = This Question
Muhle R89 or Jagger DE89 Razor (same head)
Thater 49125 (works brilliantly for face or bowl so you don't need one of each and has the softest tips imaginable)
Feather Blades (they encourage good technique)
Nancy Boy Signature Shave Cream
Martin de Candre Shaving Soap. High price of admission but lasts forever yielding low per shave cost. No soap lathers more easily.
RazoRoch Alum Stick (most alum is the same but this one comes in a convenient container/applicator)
Thayer's non-alcohol unsented witch hazel with aloe.
Nancy Boy Cooling Aftershave Gel
I'm not a fan of heavy or lingering scents and none of the products above will leave any real residual aroma. If that's something you desire others will undoubtedly chime in on the topic.
As an oenophile you can appreciate that there are widely varying opinions on every product ranging from love to abject hate. You'll probably have to try 100 to find your 10 must haves. Over the last 45 years I've tried enough California Cabs to fill an ocean (my family was in the wine distribution business years ago) to realize I just don't like 99% 0f them. It doesn't mean they're bad wines, but I grew up drinking Bordeaux from the great post-war vintages so my palate seeks a very different style. The same goes with shaving gear & supplies.
