Let's see the goodies you picked up this week!
This is a good week so far
Yesterday I got the box from Bornholm
Later a package from www.proshave.dk arrived:
Today I found a local store that carries the full Tabac line, naturally I had to add a puck of the shaving soap in bowl to my den. About time I get to try the fabled Tabac
Today was a good week.
Got a tub of Mama Bear's Aromatic Pipe Tobacco soap. (thank you Rigglet)
A Fredric Reynolds straight(in trade for some dremel work )
My watch should be arriving today, will post pics when it gets here.
so, in yesterday's mail from West Coast Shaving:
200 Red Pack IP
200 Crystal IP
TOBS Rose SC
Institut Karite SC
Institut Karite SS
Musgo Real AS Balsam
Musgo Real No. 2 (Oak Moss) EdC
Dominica Bay Rum AS
Pre de Provence ASB
Proraso AS splash
and from a B&B brother (thanks, Jon):
Floris of London Santal AS
Etro Vetiver EdT
Floris of London Elite AS
and I don't remember whether I crowed about this when it arrived:
50 ml. bottle of Pen's English Fern edt
Left to right: Master Bay Rum, Jack Black Supreme Cream, L'occitane Cade shave cream (awful), C.O. Bigelow Barber black after shave balm, C.O. Bigelow shave cream, C.O. Bigelow pre-shave oil, Body Shop Maca root shave cream, Maca root wash off shave oil.
I really regret the Cade cream. I tried it yesterday with a new personna blade in my mekur barber pole. Tore my face up BAD, and I had to re-shave later because all the stubble that ended up getting left was irritating things further.
I like the smell of Cade, but I would probably go for the soap, and it's pricey.
How about some Irisch Moos, Bull Mastiff from Cooncatbob, and a bottle of Floris Santal splash from Walter Sobchak (thanks again Jon). Also a nice fat handle Tech from some old NYC store.....don't think it ever hit water...
Floris Santal Aftershave Splash

Picked up this little tyke on the bay for $16
I hit the jackpot today...
Found in a local supply shop:
Master Lilac Vegetal
Pinaud Special Reserve
Carries the full line of Master (including the gallon) products.
I LOVE THAT STRAIGHT! I want one, where did you get it from?
Over at http://www.rasagepoulin.com/
He has a lot of great stuff!
Gentleman's refinery aftershave
Got this, shaved with it then when I took it apart for rinsing I cut the crap out of my thumb(head was stuck). I should have used a washcloth but I wasn't thinking.
To each his own, but you may want to give the Cade another try! My first attempt with it was average, however after adjusting the cream to water ratio ( I use a bit more of this cream when mixing than I do when using other creams ) it provides a very luxurious, slick lather and when used in combination with the Cade aftershave it has a nice masculine, woodsy fragrance!
I was tidying up a bit on Monday when I discovered an old bottle full of Old Spice Aftershave in a Lighthouse shaped decanter. It was given to me as a gift from my Aunt & Uncle some 25-30 years ago. They used to give me Old Spice aftershave every year for Christmas after I started shaving. I always thought it was for old men and used to give it away ( I wish I had it now ). I never said anything to them as I didn't want to hurt their feelings and thought the gesture was very nice and thoughtful. I was pleasantly surprised when I found this bottle stashed away, and was anxiously awaiting my shave yesterday (Tuesday) morning to give it a try. It smells great and still soothes the face. I wonder if I think it smells great because now I am an "old" guy!
My Aunt passed away about seven years ago and I really miss her, so It was a nice remembrance to not only have found it, but to finally use the gift I was given so many years ago.
