Trumpers soap, scent aside, does not impress me. Slight post shave irritation again today. Lather doesn't seem to hold water well enough. Back to Tabac, Cella et al

Louis, I'm with you on Trumper's veggie soaps. I find that they require a heavy hand loading the brush only to be rewarded with a lather that is too crisp for my tastes.

Semogue 2010 LE silvertip
Queen Charlotte Provence
Mühle R89 w/7 O'Clock #6
Thayer's aftershave splash

Not as good as yesterday. Need to keep working with the water-holding capacity of the Semogue, which is substantial.

The 7 O'Clock blades are so durable.
