Wednesday AM 2018-04-25

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Polo 2 Ivory Finest #2 (28/60)
Williams Rose shaving soap (vintage)/Bulgarian Rose perfume
Delta Echo Ink Edition Feather AS-D2/Triad Blue Aristocrat Titanium
Personna Super Stainless (6)
Houbigant Yama aftershave (vintage)

I have learned how much of the Bulgarian Rose to use, a balance with enough fragrance for the lather but not enough to irritate my skin. The Super Stainless blade is not quite as smooth as the 74 Tungsten, but it is quite good, and at shave six it has not started to drag at all. And the Yama has become a favorite, with some of the same powdery barbershop notes as Floris No. 89 and Mennen Skin Bracer.

Penhaligon's English Fern shaving soap (tallow)
RazoRock Mamba/Stork Advoco Titanium
Personna Super Stainless (8)
Penhaligon's English Fern aftershave (vintage)

One of the all-time great soaps for my 70th birthday shave. Unlike the 74 Tungstens, this blade began to drag, so I tossed it out when I was done.
