Why not? :D

Made some changes for the new year, but nothing not already referenced below. Homemade Lime soap, Thater 4376/5 silvertip plexi brush, General V2 razor with Schick 30 Proline blade, and finished off with the ever-popular Superior 70 splash. (Wow, BBS every single day!)

Really nice relaxing shave this morning with my trusty AS-D2 and a Martin de Candre Vetyver 50g sampler of their shaving soap I received for Christmas from my brother-in-law. I’ve shaved with their Fougere and Original and quite honestly wasn’t impressed given the price of the product, but this Vetyver scented soap whipped up into a thick protective lather, and that scent!! Wow, it bowled me over. I’ve always been a sucker for Vetiver scents, but have really not indulged since my second wife’s fragrance allergy prohibits it. The beauty of this stuff is that it surrounds while shaving and then fades away! I was so entranced by the scent that I really took my time. I only need a two pass shave with this razor. I’ve pretty much mastered its very narrow sweet spot. My third pass was unnecessary, but it did allow me to relather and luxuriate in that divine scent. The result was a BBS of both dome and face. I feel clean, smooooth, refreshed, and ready for church.

BLADE: Feather
PREP: Cold water rinse followed by PAA’s Charcoal-Menthol Cube Preshave Soap
BRUSH: Viking Silvertip Badger
SOAP: Martin de Candre Vetyver
POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by Thayers Lavender WH and finished with Old Spice Fresh Lime
De Gustibus Non Disputandum
