Over the years I have tried and used many diffident brands of mustache wax, but for the last 3 or 4 I have been mostly using what I can concoct in my kitchen lab. Alway, of course after my wife is in bed. And I always clean up afterwards! AFter getting ready this morning, i figured I had better get busy, as I was not going to make it thru the week with what I had left. Over the years I’ve tried. I originally tried my hand at this, when I got this big tube of Lucky Tiger. Turns out...

In June 1941 Operation Barbarosa was launched. In North Africa Rommel was driving the British back into Egypt. In the North Atlantic the German Submarines were sinking masses of ships. All of France was either directly ruled by Germany or under the nominal Vichy French. German troops had pushed almost a thousand miles into Russia and seemed unstoppable.

Over the course of the last year I have been concentrating on using and finishing product. I have been going through aftershaves, colognes and shaving creams and sold off most of the excess. But the soaps... well, I just like them all and don't want to unload them. Over the last several months I have been using mainly Pre de Provence and C&E Sandalwood with an occasional SCS soap thrown in for good measure.
