AOS creams will fill my dance card until the first of the year. Today it was Rose Absolute, and yesterday's was Peppermint.

DRH Marlborough stick 2 days in a row now.
PS: It just seems to be getting better, as I move through a few of my best brushes.

Cedarwood homemade shaving soap. 7 years old, minimal ingredients none of which are tallow. The lather is quite frankly unbelievably thick and creamy. Must be getting better with age. I still have 5 left.

My homemade tobacco scented shaving soap is the soap of the day for the next 34 days unless it gets all used up first. If that happens before February 14th I'll be using a stick of homemade cedarwood scented shaving soap.

The homemade tobacco scented soap ran out today after 58 great lathers. The absence will be short due to the switch to a stick of cedarwood scented homemade.

Good morning! Massive snowfall and temperature of minus 2 F outside today. And it's Monday! Nothing like a great shave to guarantee smooth sailing. Today and 45 mornings ahead with a rotation consisting of 3 nice tallow based Fine shaving soaps to look forward to! First up will be Snake Bite, followed by Green and Fresh Vetiver. I'm a lucky guy! 😀
