Martin de Candre shaving soap

An early effortless BBS shave this morning. And with the muddy lavender of the soap and cool blue aftershave, it felt very old-timey.

Friday AM 2018-03-23

Georgetown Pottery G20 scuttle (Hamada & Purple)
Rooney 3/2 Faux Horn Finest (24/54)
Floris Elite shaving soap (tallow)/Elite shaving cream (vintage)
RazoRock Mamba/UFO Titan Fine
Personna 74 Tungsten (9)
Floris Elite aftershave (vintage)

I've decided that using the soap and cream together to make a superlather is overkill. Each is excellent by itself, so I am going to alternate them instead.

Saturday AM 2018-03-24

Georgetown Pottery G12 scuttle (Green Oribe & Purple)
Rooney 3/3 Porcelain Finest (26/59)
Houbigant Fougère Royale shaving soap (vintage)
Delta Echo Black Chrome-Nickel Feather AS-D2/Triad Satin Aristocrat
Personna 74 Tungsten (10)
Houbigant Fougère Royale aftershave (vintage)

The porcelain brush has a little more density and backbone than my other 3/3 brushes, making it even better for the hard soap.
