Proraso green is my personal speed limit when it comes to menthol, those that subscribe to the freeze my face school are just plain wacky IMHO. :lol:

I believe some years ago Neil Young warbled out " A Man Needs a Maid" but old single curmudgeons like moi have learned to take on all domestic chores in order to survive. The no fabric softener with towels rule was ingrained aeons ago. :lol:

Thanks to Paul from connaught giving us an advance heads up and some special pricing, I have a comfortable number of SI's vacuum sealed in plastic for the dark days ahead.

Trumper West Indian Extract of Limes Skin Food

Oh my, it's taken me three years to try this magnificent product?, #-o
Now I understand what the cognoscenti here were describing.
The absolute essence of perfectly ripe fruit squeezed over Bombay Sapphire and epidermal joy beyond measure. I have a shelf of aftershaves pouting at me.

I realize that Sam has done the deed, hopefully the new models are as good as the old ones. My buddy has one (actually his wife uses it) and like the old Timex watches.... For what it's worth, Cub Cadet is outright over priced crap, it's been a long time since it's heyday as part of the Internationa...

My formative years growing up in "Charm City" in "The Free State" had interesting phrases descend on my young ears such as "wrench 'em out in the zinc with some wudder". Translation = rinses them out in the sink with some water. :roll:

Both bottles of the Bay Rhum I've owned were acquired via various B/S/T threads in different forums, now I'm down to half a bottle. I concur Phil, lotsa radio silence of late. I actually use it as a post workout shower body spritz at the gym (incidentally from one of your blue atomizer bottles). Fel...

I have transitioned from creams to soaps and of late, keep reaching for the Queen Charlotte Soaps Lavender shave soap (tallow) and the in house brand veggie soap of the same scent from Vintage Blades. Badger brush, hands done, Savile Row, absolute best value (for me). Best boar, the Limited Edition ...

I've tried the QCS Tangerine in the hard soap and think that it would be a fun soap for the warmer months (though I'd have to be dragged kicking and screaming from the QCS Lavender soap !) :D

Er, rather "unigue" I'd say. The theremin made the background music for both "The Thing" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (original versions) if I recall, set the mood perfectly.

I have the big bottle of the Vitos 'After Shaving' aftershave and can not begin to describe how great it is. The scent is powdery but not overpowering. It doesn't sting that much and the scent lasts for a while. It is a high quality product in my opinion. I hear on the interwebs that it is similar ...
