    I'm Loving Declaration's Persephone

    I visit Declaration Grooming's website frequently, as I'm a huge fan of Scott's soaps, brushes and aftershaves. By chance the other day, I happened upon a new release called "Persephone." I couldn't help myself, even though I've got a couple of lifetimes of aftershaves, and ordered a couple of...

    Pleased to See Declaration Grooming Doing Well...

    I happened on a Declaration Instagram post yesterday when he announced he was releasing a new aftershave (and soap) today called "Maroon." I checked out his website at about 9:10 this morning, and the aftershave was sold out. Good for Scott at Declaration. He seems to have a lot of fans...

    Congrats on the Blackberry Blossom Bay Tribute

    Yesterday morning Declaration Grooming released a new scent, called B Cubed. Chatillon Lux provided the scent. Shawn at CL is now out of the scented aftershave business, but fortunately has a partnership with Scott at Declaration to use CL scents in the Declaration aftershave formula...

    In Praise of "Beach" Scents

    Perhaps it's the time of year here in the northern hemisphere, but I've been truly enjoying my "beach" aftershaves. They bear a resemblance to the "aquatics," but with an added tone of suntan lotion, seaweed, hot dog stands, etc. My three aftershaves in this category are "The Beach," from PAA...

    My Last Chatillon Lux Aftershave Purchase

    I just received by mail my likely final aftershave purchase from Shawn at Chatillon Lux, a pair of bottles of La Petite Prairie. Chatillon Lux is my favorite aftershave. I believe I’ve got every aftershave he’s released, in most cases at least two bottles. Shawn is now focused on his EDT/EdP...

    Is XPEC Gone for Good?

    I used XPEC Original this morning for the first time in a very long time. I'd forgotten how much I like the stuff--the scent, the performance. I don't use it much because I know it's hard to find, and expensive. I just spent too much time trying to find it for sale, anywhere. No luck. Has this...

    A Tremendous Aftershave, though hard to get...

    Five or six years ago, I was introduced to L&L Grooming (now Declaration Grooming) through a BST purchase of a slightly used set of Harmony soap and aftershave. Once I used the soap, I knew this was my artisan. I still love the bison base best (though Milksteak is also good). And Declaration and...

    British Shaving Creams

    I recently went on holiday to Spain, and decided to buy three Spanish shaving creams. I posted about it. Now we're thinking about going to Great Britain on our fall vacation next year, so yesterday I ordered four British shaving creams: Trumper's Rose, Trufitt & Hill's Trafalger, St. James of...

    Spanish Shaving Creams

    I spent a couple of weeks in Spain during October and toyed with the idea of picking up some Spanish products while there. Not wanting to haul extra gear, or to hear from my wife, "What? More shaving stuff?"--I decided not to acquire any shaving supplies while there. Yesterday I bought my...

    For those seeking to buy a Wolfman...

    Check out the “Latest News” tab on the Wolfman site. He’s created an email order form that works like a charm. I bought a new WR2 about an hour ago. Congrats to James for ever upping his game...

    Bandit: A Women's Fragrance I Enjoy

    I'm often an outlier but, at 63, I figure I'm entitled. This afternoon, I sprayed some Piguet Bandit EdP. About five years ago, knowing it's a "women's" perfume, but having read a lot about its aggressiveness, I bought it blindly (at a much cheaper price than today's). Every time I've used it...

    Did anyone else snag one of these today? I ordered the aggressive version. I'll be interested to hear others' reactions...

    FT Wolfman WR1 .74 OC for WR2 1.25 OC or WR1 .94 OC

    I know it’s a long shot, but let me know if you’re willing to swap your WR2 1.25 OC or WR1 .94 OC for my WR1 .74 OC. I’m the original owner, and it hasn’t had much use.

    WTB MdC Agrumes Shaving Soap

    As I approach my 2019 Sabbatical (wish me luck—I’ll need it!), there’s one more product I’d like to have in my den—a full or nearly-full tub of Martin de Candre Agrumes shaving soap. Can any of you fine folks help? Thanks for reading.

    Declaration Premium Bison Soap Base

    I’m a huge fan of Declaration’s (or L&L’s) legacy bison base. I’ve tried his other base, Icarus, but it just doesn’t perform as well in my hands and on my face. In fact, only MdC rivals Declaration’s bison base in my den, which contains bunches of Grooming Dept, Wholly Kaw, Eufros, Sudsy...
