    With the start of Summer just days away, I'm setting aside the first formal week of the season to be a celebration!

    Bring your summertime scents out of storage or share with us any changes in your shaving ritual that comes about this time of year.

    There *might* be a PIF prize at the end of the week. :cool:
  2. Summertime scents??? By the time the week's up, they'll've changed my avatar to effing Tiny Tim!!

    Count me in!!! [​IMG]
  3. Well since I've already been using Limes all June long as part of the month long soap journey I guess I fit in this thread if by no other reason than luck! For the soap journey I chose GFT Limes soap and I've been rotating back and forth between GFT Limes AS/Cologne and T&H Limes AS/Cologne. As far as doing things different for summer. This summer I'll be using quality shave products and a plethora of DE razors. Last summer I was still a cartridge and canned crap guy. I guess that is one of the most drastic 'seasonal' changes a guy can make.

    Day 22

    Today's shave:
  4. Back to the Grind Shave

    Yesterday's shave with the slant was so close that I was able to make due with a 2-pass XTG/ATG shave today: a good, quick, Monday shave.
  6. Monday:

    Kyle's prep
    Godrej Menthol Mist SC
    Vulfix SBB
    Merkur HD w/Astra Platinum (day 3)
    cold water splash w/alum block
    Osage Rub

    Arber EdT is today's scent

    Summertime changes...this week may be an all menthol week. Otherwise the only other change is somewhat lighter scents.

    I shouldn't be lulled into complacency with the Schick thinking it is like a Mach 3 because it'll bite, but despite a slight nick on my chin, I have a wonderfully smooth face following three passes.

    Nothing summery in this shave - summer has yet to arrive in Boston.

  18. Sunday:

    GFT Sandalwood Skin Food as a preshave
    GFT Sandalwood Soap
    Puma 5/8
    GFT Sandalwood Skin Food
    GFT Sandalwood EdT (whoa, this one might be a bit sweet for my liking...)

    For the start of summer I decided to go earthy and smell like sandalwood. Unfortunately, this was my first time trying the EdT and I came away smelling somewhat sweet and synthetic (not saying the scent is bad for those who like it, just not what I was looking for). I will be having some wonderful mentholated shaves as the week wears on, but I like to try to get some earthy scents going as the hot weather sets in.
