    D.R. Harris Mayfair Cologne

    I have it and wear it from time to time. Its a very floral, powdery, musky vintage-style cologne. Its not exactly like the CM Jockey Club (the old one) but it has the same powdery barbershop vibe but with more flowers.

    Frag to match Razorock Medico della Peste?

    It's SMN Potpourri. I think it is an attempt at a copy of it just as with the del Fiore and SMN Toscano. Potpourri is excellent if a bit unusual.

    Peterson P-Lips- Are you a fan?

    IMO its a solution looking for a problem.

    Two questions in one - Old Boy Flints / Ferndown Pipes

    Ferndown pipes are top notch and have a unique but traditional English style. My only complaint is that many Ferndowns are a bit robust for clenching.

    No guard DE?

    Sir, the honor is all yours! I guess I must give this thing a shot. Best, Speas

    Royall Aftershaves

    You can buy these online for around $30 for the 8oz. Very reasonable IMO. I like and use the Lyme and Vetiver also but the Muske is my favorite.

    No guard DE?

    I saw this on etsy - perhaps its been posted previously but I couldnt find it. It has the "industry leading open strait razor head" (hah). I wonder how many folks pick this up thinking its a standard DE and cant make it work...

    Petal Pusher Fancies

    Are all of their soaps now the old PPF formula? I find the PPF soaps I have (amber and coconut) to be great and the HGTAM I have (gondolier) to be just ok.

    Favorite floral soap

    Catie's gardenia is very nice.

    What is Amber?

    I dont really know what all is in the fragrance but I like that one as well - used it this morning. It does have a musk component to it. Its not a soap but Royall Muske cologne has a scent that is in the ballpark.

    Clix Five Hundred

    I have one and use it on occasion. It is fairly mild to me, similar to a Tech. The build quality and design are both very good. I often use mine as a travel razor.

    Gillette "new" long vs short vs whatever?

    I find the LC a bit smoother than the SC. The Ikon is more like the SC to me but perhaps a hair closer shaving. In the big picture you can throw a hat over the group. I dont think you can change aggressiveness by the blade selection as you suggest.

    Anyone order an ATT razor in the last few days?

    I ordered about a week ago and got my order in around 5 days (East Coast). No worries - also I will say that the M2 is great!

    Ikon Deluxe OC = ATT ?

    I have both the ATT M2 and Ikon OC. I think the Ikon is just slightly milder than the M2. If you like the Ikon then you'll like the M2, IMO.

    Definitely not gone - my barber uses a cloth to apply the talc. I myself have moved to the Pinaud Bath Talc from the Pinaud Clubman Talc. It smells a bit different but doesnt have the pink coloring added.
