You're most welcome.

Normally parcels take 5-14 days, although I did once send a parcel to Canada that arrived in 2 days!

Whoa! The 7 O'Clock Super Platinums I've always had (my favorite blade, by the way) were from India. Paul's website says that these are from Russia. I guess I'll have to order a box to try them. The black Super Platinum's are made in India & the blue's are made in Russia. I find the blue to be clos...

Yes, I buy most things online. I may try a few regular stores to see what they stock but most just stock the mass market, Twinings, Clipper etc. Irish breakfast Teas vary but they are almost always stronger than English. Irish can be a blend of Assams, or a blend on 2nd flush Assam & February/August...

You do need boiling water for Tea though. So coffee gizmos don't use hot enough water, not for a proper cup anyway. I have a mini teapot for making just one cup. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31iyEfzNyJL._SS500_.jpg I used to drink a wonderful Tea, Irish Breakfast by Taylor's of Harrogate. V...

Primula has the mildest scent.

The Cologne bath soap is also mild. It has a very light Gold Medal like scent.

I have a new refill of the Limes & find this provides a good lather. I would not rank it above MWF or the Valobra stick, but certainly a very good soap. The normal method of loading a brush & adding water doesn't work for me so I use this technique for all hard soaps: Soak the brush for 2-3 minutes,...

I like Santal and am surprised about the vanilla. It does smell sweet but I never figured it was vanilla. No way of proving it one way or the other without running it through a gas chromatograph.... but to my nose it's definitely vanillin. That's from memory, though. I'll go into my local dealer to...

*I have vested interest in these as I sell them* All the Valobra soaps seem to be very good quality, made in the traditional way. For me the Master Soaps lather up a tad easier & make the best bath / shower soaps. They are milled more so a harder, longer lasting bar. I am using a Claus Porto pomegra...
