    TGIF 2morrow !
    ~06/28/2012~

    Semogue 830 \\ Muhle R89 w/ Derby \\ Proraso Crema Pre E Dopo Barba \\ EJ-Muhle Sea Buckthorn SS \\ Nivea Replenishing Post Shave Balm

    I know mentioned that JBM Violetas smelled amazing and was one my favorites. It's still is but BOY OH BOY this EJ-Muhle Sea Buckthorn SS is just Exquisite! Its has gone on top my rotation b/c the aroma is that great and love it. Also its EJ/Muhle and doesn't smell anything close to being artificial IMHO. The puck is pretty small but seems tougher than it being triple milled so it looks like that it will last for quite some time. Any who the lather was awesome, just use the famous "Marco's Method"! Its a great soap! You all have a wonderful day my friends!

    SHAVE:
    Blend of HBS Mayan Gold SS + TOBS Sandalwood SC
    Semogue Owners Club
    Georgetown G5 Scuttle
    PARKER 98R "GOLIATH" RAZOR
    Astra SP (2)
    Alum block
    SCS Patchouli Edt
    DFS in 3 passes.

    The Parker 98R continues to perform well. It commands respect... No weepers today, but I did raise a tad of a burn on the neck while rushing a bit... The Mayan Gold is a treasure, blended with the TOBS cream, it is an awesome fragrant lather concoction.
    SCS Patchouli Edt is simply one of the best ever - wearing it a 2nd day in a row - because I like it so much.

    I quite like the scent of the aftershave lotion - and it does a nice job moisturizing, too..

    +1 on your set up.
    Your razor is a Merkur 1904.
    Nice Proraso pre-shave cream, and Art of Shaving shaving cream.
    Very nice starter kit, can't go wrong with any of it.
    Is the brush new or is it vintage?

    Simpson Classic 1
    Cella
    Open Comb w/ Personna Med Prep (1)
    Razorock R-160

    I was reading the shaving brush sub-forum last night and got caught up reading the thread about the Cella bowl and how people generally move the soap over to a larger container. Well I can't see this soap in anything but this red tub so I decided to maybe buy a new boar brush since my SOC has way too much splay to be effective. Then someone mentioned that they were using a Classic 1. I havent touched my Classic brush ever since I bought my Rudy Vey brush. I figured that the next day I would put my neglected brush to use and see if I still even liked this brush .
    I wet the brush "old world italian barber/Marco's method style" and proceeded to swirl.
    I don't understand how this brush holds so much lather. It held enough for 3 passes. Not enough for touchups but I don't generally need more than 3 passes unless I'm going out. I forgot how a brush could have enough backbone to pick up soap but feel awesomely soft on the face while still slightly exfoliating.
    Yesterday I was seriously contemplating selling this brush because I haven't used it in such a long time. Today I am determined to set a true rotation for my brushes because they all deserve to be used.
    What a great brush to compliment a great shave!
    Have a great day Gents!

    Never tried it myself since we don't have it here in Sweden but I've heard that Barbasol is the best of the canned stuff and an actual decent product and good value.

    Barbasol is actually pretty darn good. I use it as a preshave sometimes as well as using it to shave with. To me, it outperforms any of the Gillette Foams or Edge Gels, and works well in a pinch.
