Re: Good lavender scents?

Aqua Lavanda Puig is probably my favorite lavender cologne, this one is now hard to come by and seems only available in the large plastic splash style bottles, I cherish my current ramaining glass bottle of cologne.

Re: DRH's Arlington Pre-Shave: A Review

I have tried a few different pre shave treatments and have to say that while results will naturally vary for everyone I have had the best results from Proraso. I now have both the green and white versions and have to say I enjoy using both and feel it does help to set up a better shave. How much bet...

Re: New Gillette cartridge razor

It has always been about the results for me, a smooth, comfortable and lasting shave with a reasonable amount of effort. Having tried just about all of the current tools available my first choice for quite sometime has been the Mach III Turbo followed closely by the Fusion Pro Glide. With Costco I a...

Re: What's today's soap or cream?

Yesterday and today -Proraso White Pre Shave and Canned Shave Cream.

Gary's mention of Rasoline brought back some fond memories of this French shave cream, good stuff in my books.

Re: Acquisitions thread

Picked up a small jar of Proraso White Pre Shave and White Canned Shave Cream yesterday in my travels around the city. I have used the green version of the pre shave but wanted to have something with a bit less of the menthol blast, the white definitely tones it down quite a bit. The canned shave cr...

Re: What's today's soap or cream?

Proraso White - Pre Shave and Canned Shave Cream - just trying something a bit different, have to say it worked as well as anything. For those that dable in the canned shave cream arena, using a preshave like Proraso might be the ticket to kick it up a notch.

Re: What's today's soap or cream?

T&H Ultimate Comfort - used it brushless for a pretty good shave, definitely above average. With a splash of Thayers After Shave and a nice slap of Aqua Lavanda I am set for the day.

Re: Acquisitions thread

Just bought a tube of T&H Ultimate Comfort Shave Cream and two bottles of Thayers Witch Hazel Aftershave. Noticed that Merz has added a few new items to their assortment. I am truly becoming much more selective in my buying and preferences lately.

Re: US Open

Just watched the last 90 minutes of this afternoons broadcast and have to say I like very much this years venue and think it will be a great open to watch. US Opens can get quite boring when you see players chipping out of the rough when they are unable to make a shot. The restored Pinehurst #2 is g...

Re: VDH Razor

I think the razor is most likely a Weishi, which from all reports was a decent mild shaver back in the days.
