I'm like someone gaining and losing weight...

Despite my efforts to downsize my collection of shaving stuff, sometimes I just can't resist adding new items. Today I ordered Phoenix Accoutrements Chella Cool almond aftershave and a Hemingway Accoutrements box set of shaving cream, tonic, and balm. Maybe I'm just a sucker for the word accoutrements...

I call it the Pack Rat Syndrome or the Magpie Syndrome. I suffer from it too: I can’t help being attracted by “shiny” objects. #-o

Yes. And a puck of vintage Mohawk shaving soap is coming. I'm on a binge. It's another old tallow-based one that I've wanted to try. At $5, it's a cheap experiment.

The difficulty of passing up chocolate treats is only exceeded by passing up colorful shaving soap and brushes
