Instead of my normal routine, today I went with a brushless shaving cream. "Ambrosia" sold by Lush in the mall. All went well.

Today's SOTD reflects the same departure from routine as yesterday. I used the brushless shaving cream again.

Wednesday AM 2018-05-30

Georgetown Pottery G20 scuttle
Rooney Emillion 2 Tiger Stripe Finest (26/54)
Harrods by Floris shaving soap (vintage)
Delta Echo Ink Edition Feather AS-D2/Triad Polished-Satin Diamond Titanium
Personna Super Platinum Chrome (9)
Dolce & Gabbana aftershave

The Harrods soap, like most of the other old Floris soaps, is excellent. I'm quite pleased with the Personna blade, which is almost - but not quite - the equal of the Wilkinson Light Brigades and Personna 74 Tungstens.

Thursday AM 2018-05-31

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Emillion 2 Porcelain-Jade Finest (26/54)
I Coloniali shaving cream
Charcoal Goods Brass L1/Stork 'Ghost Rider' Bronze
Personna Super Platinum Chrome (10)
Guerlain Vétiver aftershave

This Emillion has extremely soft tips, contrasting with the slight "scritch" of the one yesterday and demonstrating the diversity of characters among the Finests. The I Coloniali is a very good cream, nearly equal in quality to the vintage British creams, and the aftershave is quite refreshing.
