    Update from Germanicus

    Due to other obligations/pursuits/obsessions (namely new job, new espresso machine, househunting, mid-century modern design/architecture) I haven't been visiting this fine forums for a while. So here's an update on the shaving side of things. A while back I had my first barbershop straight...

    About samples

    I received generous samples at no charge from Floris, Penhaligons and Truefitt & Hill. Classy. I found a website for Dunhill and filled in a free sample request. A while later, I received a peel-and-smell postcard! I guess Procter and Gamble can't afford to give away stuff to potential...

    T&H Grafton

    Grafton is a great scent. I tried a sample and it seemed familiar to my nose. Late I realized that Yves Saint Laurent's Jazz (which I have) smells identical on me. Interesting.

    Does anyone enjoy YSL's Jazz? I've had a bottle for a while (gift). I wore some when it was warm out and it didn't feel right. Yesterday morning I put some on again (just one spray). My SO said it was "OK" At first, it seemed too strong (I really can't describe scents) but after a few hours...

    I believe there are a few B & B members in the Victoria area. I moved here a few months ago. Where do you shop (brick and mortar) for supplies?

    Aqua Velva + Proraso ASB?

    Gents, Two days ago I was browsing my local drugstore and tried some AV Classic on my hand. I thought, "I can't do this, smells kind of funny", so I didn't buy it. However, as the day went along the AV smell became more and more appealing (might I be a convert?). Then I read the AV threads...

    First DE shave

    I had my first DE shave today. I used a Merkur HD (Thanks Lee) with Merkur blade (I also have Wilkinsons and Derbys) after a shower and Proraso pre-shave and cream (green). Two passes WTG and one ATG resulted in considerable stubble under my jawline. The rest is acceptably close. I let the...

    What to bring from France?

    Allow me to introduce myself

    Greetings from the Pacific Northwest! For the last 3 months I've been wet shaving regularly and really enjoying the experience since I discovered both the Proraso pre & dopo and the soap. I also have a brush made of horsetail hair :confused: I bought in Argentina (it works great). So my weak...
