Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 1/3 Ebony Finest (26/52)
I Coloniali shaving cream

New blades usually feel slightly rough to me for the first shave or two, but not this one; it was perfectly smooth immediately.

Saturday AM 2018-11-17

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 2/1 Ivory Finest (22/56)
XPEC Unscented shaving cream (first version)/Bulgarian Rose EdP
Weber DLC/Bulldog
Gillette Platinum 'Swede' (3)
Floris Santal aftershave
Floris Rose Geranium EdT (vintage)

The old XPEC makes incredible lather, and the DLC is extremely smooth. I really like the combination of sandalwood and rose scents, and the EdT added a nice green touch too.
