Unilever has bought the former Bond/Personna Israeli plant. This obviously means an extra player in the market and Dorco losing a major customer having retracted from the North American direct market...
I just tried two Iberian Lavenders. I prefer the Ach Brito to the discontinued Puig. I have an Les Bénédictines de Chantelle Lavender on order. I have a few others Caldrey, Cella possibly a Berdoues.

I am a great admirer of traditional soap.
To me traditional soap is a simple blend of oil, usually Olive oil and either Lye (Sodium hydroxide) or Soda Ash (Sodium carbonate), and water - preferably saltwater. With the additions of essential oils such as Laurel. This is made in a cauldron...
Has anyone tried Greek Soaps such as
Knossos of Crete, Patounis of Corfu, or
Papoutsanis. Papoutsanis Oliva is widely available in Europe. I ordered Papoutsanis
Karavaki, it was a tallow soap similar to Atkinson's soap from Italy.
Fortunately I am a hoarder of Luxury soap. In the last two months I have used up most of my French Shea Butter soaps that I use for facial and hand washing, my Savon Marseille de Liquide for hand washing and showering is also nearing the end too. I have sadly put a few boxes in my storage unit...
25 years ago I had Polo shirts from every fashion brand going: Polo RL, LaCoste, Boss, Armani etc. Later I switched to Supima Polos from Lands End. I have now decided to improve my Polo selection. So in the last few days I have ordered 4 Spier and Mackay Egyptian cotton polo's, an Alan Paine...

I have dabbled with Pino Silvestre and Acqua Di Selva. I nearly bought Aqua Brava. I have been aware of Silvestre by Victor for a while. I thought it was discontinued but there are EDT's and AS's on eBay. The AS are obviously less expensive for a blind gamble. Has anyone tried it?
I bought a Type L injector where the previous blade was jammed, on the right side the blade had risen. I have managed to finally eject it and insert a new blade.
The issue is that on the right side you can push the bar a few millimetres.
It's probably not noticeable to the untrained eye. Will...

Finally the GT6 can be found in the UK, well I haven't Googled the mens subscription sites recently so I could be wrong.
FFS have a choice of 4 or 6 blades and a snazzy handle with free engraving.
