Razor: Merkur HD
Blade: Indian Wilkinson (by Gillette)
Brush: Shavemac D01 Horn
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Cyril Salter
A/S: Pre de Provence ASB

The Cyril Salter soap seems to lather better than other non tallow soaps that I have tried and really performs well. Today's shave was excellent! -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

Good day, Thursday.

Muhle R89 with Derby blade
Vulfix boar brush
Speick shave soap
Speick aftershave
GFT Wild Fern cologne

I find myself using less and less cologne lately, preferring to be more subtly fragranced than in the past. One spray, or a drop or two will do.

Shavemac Long Handled Silvertip
Trumper's Limes Shave Soap
Moss Scuttle
1947 Aristocrat
Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellow
SCS Woods AS

The Woods AS by Sue at SCS has feels good with just the right amount of alcohol burn. The scent isn't as woodsy as I imagined (or like). It's a bit floral, +/- a liitle lavender(?). I'll use a bit more and decide.
