Is it because Endymion fades so quickly or the fragrance does not agree with you?

Re: Personna Super Stainless Steel "For Hospital Use" blades

After the 8th shave using my first Personna Super Stainless Steel "For Hospital Use" blade, it is still going strong. I think I have found a great pairing using my recently acquired Gillette "Super" Adjustable. I start out WTG and XTG on setting 3, then change to setting 5 for ATG and touch ups. The...

Thank you Murray. I agree it was very generous and as you said "commendable" of Chris. After today's shave (2nd using BK4), it is quickly becoming my go-to brush.

Re: EJ DE89?

I tried my Edwin Jagger DE89 today for Christmas Day. It has a nice chrome finish and seems to have a good heft. My first impression is that it shaves somewhere between my 1958 Gillette TV Razor and my 1955 Gillette Superspeed Red-tip. It is not mild or aggressive. It provided a good shave. I have o...

Re: Is the Kent BK4 still a good buy?

I have suspended my blade trials for now as I wanted to try out the BK4 for Christmas. This brush retained plenty of water, yet released it quite easily. It lathered quickly using Trumper's GFT cream. It made enough lather for about 5-6 passes using the same amount of cream I use for about 3 passes ...

Personna Super Stainless Steel "For Hospital Use" blades

I was fortunate to receive some of these blades to try out, as sent by Gay (brothers). I finally loaded up one of these blades to test drive this morning. I have been trying out various blades lately, using the same blade in a few different razors, but staying with the same lather throughout the tes...

Re: Penhaligon's Scent Library (14 different samples)

I see they have changed the price to $25 USD since I posted the link yesterday, but it still seems to be a good deal. The set includes 14 spray vials (1.5ml each) of the following: 1 ) Bayolea 2 ) Blasted Heath 3 ) Blenheim Bouquet 4 ) Endymion 5 ) Endymion Concentre 6 ) Halfeti 7 ) Juniper Sling 8 ...
