FS: Vintage Floris Rose Geranium EdT

A vintage bottle of Floris Rose Geranium toilet water, still 75% full. It smells great, but I just prefer the very similar Floris Moss Rose. $40 shipped CONUS.

Re: Advice for starting a new cake of vintage soap

I use many vintage soaps, and I have found that when starting one, it helps if I cover the puck with warm water and let it soak for15-20 minutes before trying to build the first lather.

Re: Define your SOTD

My morning shave ritual generally is a longer process, an interval for relaxed, meditative Zen mindfulness without any rush, worries, concerns, or other distractions. I enjoy its regular, repetitive steps, like the notes of a familiar melody. First I lay out my iron-on labeled Penhaligon's or Floris...

FS: PAA Cavendish Shaving Soap

This 4 oz. shaving soap from Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements, with the wonderful fragrance of Cavendish pipe tobacco, has been used about half a dozen times. It makes great lather, but I prefer another tobacco soap. Retails for $14.95 plus shipping. Yours here for $12.95 shipped CONUS. https://i.imgur...

Re: More Medjool Dates

Makings of an excellent Waldorf salad there. My version is chopped dates, chopped celery, chopped apple, crushed walnuts and mayonnaise. Tastes even better the next day, but doesn't look so good. Haven't done that for years, so thanks for the reminder! That sounds great! I haven't had Waldorf salad...

More Medjool Dates

Ready for the freezer. I've been tempted sometimes to eat them while shaving. They're a great evening snack with a DVD movie.

Re: Acquisitions thread

After all the praise on some of the shaving forums about the Raw Shaving RS-10 razor, and then the commotion when the artisan announced that he was out of business and no longer selling, I just had to try one of them. I was able to find one, so it's on its way.

That is a nice-looking razor!
Thank you, Bill. Yes, it was. I discovered when I got it that the handle was pretty tiny, definitely too small for my medium hand, so I ended up just selling it.

Re: New Rooney Finests

Thanks, those certainly are handsome brushes. Have you had any issues with the Finest knot? I have a 2/1 Finest and the centre of the knot is starting to hollow out. When I examine the centre of the knot I see that the hairs are breaking about halfway down their shafts. I don’t think I’m a particul...

A Delta Echo Gillette New SC in black chrome & copper finish

And a couple NOS mug refills of vintage C&E Lavender shaving soap, which I suspect is tallow-based. I'll probably keep one and sell one.

Delta Echo Gillette SC

A Gillette New Short Comb revamped by Delta Echo in black chrome and copper is on its way to me. I've been using a Long Comb lately but have not tried a Short Comb before, and I like the color scheme on this one.
