    Daughter Got Into My Blades!

    You all know that was a sarcastic comment, right? Although after 3 kids, we learn to tune out some level of noise. Silence is the real killer.

    What Soap/AS scents do you consider to be “old man” Scents?

    I think classic Old Spice. I’m 37.

    Looking for Bay Rum

    Maybe check out Stirling? I'm not a bay rum guy, but I have a sample and it seems like it would be good for someone who enjoys it.

    Stubble retracting beneath the skin turning into a BBS - magic or reality?

    I’ve read some that feel not that the whiskers retract, but the skin inflames with the she shave then settles down. I know others will jump right on and say if there’s inflammation, you’re doing or wrong. Personally, I’ve never gotten a BBS though I will say approx 50% of the time I experience...

    I see now that Seville also has an EDT in that scent. I wonder how it performs. I do have the Seville, and while I prefer the scent of Stirling, there's certainly nothing wrong with Seville. Quite nice.

    Daughter Got Into My Blades!

    So today was a new one and a potential close call. My two year old very busy daughter loves to watch me shave. She likes to sniff the shaving soap, hold my brush, help me make the lather, etc. I got shaving away and did what every good parent does- generally ignored the activity and noise she...

    I should have mentioned, this was one of my best shaves I've had since starting DE. As close to BBS as I've gotten (not all the way there but pretty darn good), no irritation, no nicks.

    Barbershop Fragrances

    That's not a bad idea. I find aftershaves sometimes have more umph than the EDT. I don't really use alcohol based AS because I am very sensitive and don't enjoy the burn....but maybe if I applied it below where I shaved like a cologne. Maybe my next stirling order will need a sample....
