Sunday AM 2018-09-02

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 3/3 Porcelain Finest (26/59)
XPEC Original shaving cream (Forester Milan)
Weber DLC/UFO U2V1 Brass
Personna 74 Tungsten (1)
Aramis Tuscany aftershave

The XPEC makes great lather. Its fragrance is love-it-or-leave-it, and I love it. The Weber, with the wonderful old Personna blade, is sort of midway between a Feather AS-D2 and a Wolfman SB in terms of closeness and auditory feedback.
