Re: Vintage Hammam - first impression

I hope you were able to get the bottle open. I never tried the Hammam EdT, but I did briefly use the aftershave. For me, unfortunately, there was something in it that irritated my skin; in addition, its overall fragrance was just a little too exotic and dense for me - altogether too much of the Turk...

Re: Taking a break from really sharp blades

Bill, there is something seductive about a really smooth blade! I have a mega-stash of blades, but most all of them are favorites. So, I use them all with great satisfaction. I determined long ago that I can't use feather blades in even the mildest razor, so I don't use them, at all. I had a lesser...

It explains in a very clear and understandable way how cell-mediated immunity works, and it outlines well how medical research in general happens. It is rare that an public article is done thi...

SOLD: Vintage Floris JF Shave Soap & Aftershave - Last Reduction

I just have a few too many soaps and aftershaves, and the JF - while very nice - has never been one of my favorite fragrances. These are the original products: the soap is the vintage tallow version, and the aftershave is the pre-reformulation one. The soap, in its original wooden bowl, has been use...

Re: What made you smile today?

I smiled when we got home today from a two-day excursion to a bed-and-breakfast at a nearby artsy town, La Conner. We had great weather during the trip, which included a drive up the North Cascades Highway to see the fall tree colors, enjoyed moseying around the slough-side town's many art galleries...
