Monday AM 2018-06-04

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 1/3 Ivory Finest (26/55)
Art of Shaving Rose Absolute shaving cream
Charcoal Goods Brass L1/Triad Aristocrat Brass
Wilkinson Light Brigade (2)
Guerlain Habit Rouge aftershave

It's easy for me to use too much of the cream; just a bit of it makes lots of excellent lather. It's complemented very nicely by the Habit Rouge.

Omega 10049 boar
Arko shave "stuck"
Barley w/v3A head
Med Prep shave #1
Bay Rose as splash*
Bay Rum EDT spray*

It has been a while since I used Arko. With a boar it is absolutely terrific. I know some dislike the scent, but for me it is one of the quintessential shave aromas.

*homemade

Tim

Tuesday AM 2018-06-05

Georgetown Pottery G12 scuttle
Rooney 1/3 Ebony Finest (26/52)
Floris JF shaving soap (tallow)
RazoRock Mamba/Triad Blue Aristocrat Titanium
Wilkinson Light Brigade (3)
Floris JF aftershave (vintage)

At times I like it but sometimes the Floris JF smells just a touch too youthful and "preppy" for an old guy like me. But the soap is wonderful.

Rudy Vey Mühle 25mm Synthetic
Art of Shaving Sandalwood soap
Edwin Jagger Barley Chrome 89
Personna Medical Prep shave #4
Thayer's Lavender-Mint wh a/s
Yves St. Laurent Live Jazz EDT

The AOS was a grail soap for me at one time in this now-vintage tallowate version. I realized today that I have come to prefer soapy scents, lavender, and citrus over sandalwood for shaving. This one may have seen its last lather in my den. Possibly down to these few commercial soaps:

Speick
Palmolive
Haslinger Meersalgen
Valobra stick
Salter w/tallow
Harris Almond

Tim
