I have always thought the bell shaped curve accurately describes many of life's events including hobbies, favorite pastimes, special interests, etc.

Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

I have found and like Phoenix and Beau. Mild scent (which I prefer) and good face feel after my shave.

Slight plus's include: husband and wife team, nice artwork, historical name and matching scent.
