Thanks, Tim. I will try. Thought about using my Walmart sugar bowl, but want to be able to take the puck with me in my dop kit. But, boy, do I have my doubts that spill-over suds are going to fit this gap!

Shaved with Fine Green Vetiver shaving soap this morning. Scent was very nice. Lather was nice but I am sure would have been wonderful if I still had soft water. Nonetheless, had a very nice, two-pass shave. Face-feel after the shave was also nice. And, Tim, your suggestion on the lather spill-over to anchor the puck worked like a charm! Thanks for all your suggestions! Glad I got the Fine Green Vetiver soap!

This morning's vetiver was Asylum Vetiver Bourbon soap from BullGoose. A quick splash of hot tap water on the soap and brush, followed by 4 seconds loading the brush on the soap, then straight to the face for a thin and wet lather. The results were excellent! Slick and protective.

Nowadays I'm back in the vetiver mood. I'll use the Cold River Soap Works Morning Ghost soap for a few days. Then a couple of days more with the Asylum vetiver bourbon and soon to be followed with Salter's vetiver cream. The one I'm most looking forward to using is Tim's delightful one-off vetiver soap. This is great! Love my vetivers.

I've used Tim's vetiver the past two days and it's right up there with the best. Tim knows his fragrances, that's for sure.
