    Seagrapes Studio sample PIF - 3 winners

    I am putting up this great, easy to lather soap for PIF. You can see pics of lather in my review. The samples are about 19 grams each. These samples are from a test run on a lavender & lemongrass scent. Lavender was supposed to be the dominant scent, but it was just overpowered by the...

    MORE news from Valobra.

    A few months ago somebody posted a thread about Valobra coming out with a hard soap puck. I recently purchased a Valobra Fougere bath soap, and it's fragrance is most wonderful. I emailed Valobra asking if they were ever going to reintroduce the Fougere scented soft soap or create a hard Fougere...

    New shaving soap "discovery"

    I've discovered a new shaving soap, it might not be new, but it's new to me. I was browsing ebay a few weeks ago and came across a shaving soap by the name of Seagrapes Studio. I was intrigued and decided to take a chance on a few tins. I must say that I'm pretty pleased with my purchase. I've...

    I have a problem, I'm such a hoarder.

    I decided to count the soaps I have and here they are. Eighty-five, not including three yardley soaps, an old spice mug n' soap, eight creams and two soaps I will be selling, and four soaps that will be being used in the shower. :a52::a52: ]

    Nibs compatible with Nemosine Singularity?

    I like my singularity and the calligraphy nibs that I got with it. Are any other nibs compatible with this pen? Or am I just stuck with what is made for the pen? Thanks.

    Scents or "flavors" for shaving soap/cream?

    I always notice that some people refer to different scents of shaving soaps or creams as "flavors", when, they are just scents. You do not taste them, I hope. :tongue_sm I mean, do those who call them flavors call fragrances flavors? So, which term do you use? Scents or "flavors"?

    New fountain pen acquisition. Help, please.

    So, I've just acquired this Sheaffer fountain pen/pencil set from my great uncle. He said he got it when he was younger, for graduation or something. I opened it up, and all these parts are there. I have no clue what's going on here. It's not like the ones sold now with just an ink cartridge. I...

    What's the most you've spent on a blind purchase? (Creams, soaps, aftershaves)

    I was just talking to someone through pm, which made me think of the idea for this thread. What's the most money that you've spent on a blind soap, cream, or aftershave purchase? I've spent somewhere around $90.00 on seven tubs of Olivia's shaving cream (German artisan), and I've been very...

    New here in the NIB, question about notebooks

    I was pif'd a fountain pen by a gentleman on the shave nook. It was a cheap papermate that I believe he paid less than two bucks for. It was just so I could see if I like writing with them, needless to say, I do. :biggrin1: Anyway, I've been looking for a notebook online. I'm interested in one...

    A public thanks to Juan @ Gifts & Care

    About a month ago I had placed an order with Juan from Gifts & Care. I wanted a Vie Long 2-Band brush with a flat top shape. He said that I should place the order for a brush with the handle design I wanted and just write a note that I want flat shaped. He would then have Vie Long make the...

    In honor of. . .

    This was on a TV show called "The Voice" and I figured I would share it here for people who haven't seen it. Gentlemen, comments on the video are welcome. Please, no discussion on anything else that had to do with this unfortunate tragedy. Let's not have this thread locked. Thank you.

    Warmer weather fragrance recommendations

    What are some of your favorite warm weather fragrances? I'm trying to ditch the ADG for '13. I'm finding it repulsive as of late.

    Shave ready? Are these chips on the blade's edge?

    I'm searching through ebay and find this razor, the seller describes it as shave ready. I zoom in and see what seems to be small chips in the blade. Am I seeing things? If these are chips then I'd hate to be the poor person that purchases this razor and shaves with it thinking it's "shave...

    Has Shavemac changed their D01-Silvertip hair?

    I have a D01-Silvertip from Shavemac that I purchased in December of 2010. Compared to the D01 hair that is in production now, the older brush has less backbone and softer tips. Both of the brushes are equal in density. I'm curious to know if it has been changed. I'd like to hear other people's...

    Awaiting the arrival of my first DSLR

    I just "pulled the trigger" on a Nikon D7000 with 18-200mm lens kit and am now patiently waiting for it to arrive. This is my first DSLR and I'm pretty anxious and excited in learning this camera. I still must pick up a few more lenses, though. How many of you guys shoot with a D7000?

    Olivia's Crema - Shaving Cream

    I had heard of this cream from a thread on another site and I took a chance and ordered seven tubs of cream. I know it was risky not having read any reviews or seen any photos of lather, but I like to take risks once in a while. Anyway, the consistency of the cream is more like a croap (a hard...
