    It's that time again - In memory

    As for reacquiring, I will not be reacquiring any of these as I am working through everything Ihave. I would not buy the Figaro again. Mediocre at best, but not as good as Proraso, Cella or numerous other soft italian soaps.

    It's that time again - In memory

    Hmm. A chunk of Cella, a tube of AdP cream, Palmolive stick and a palmolive tube, Proraso green and red aftershave splashes, a tub of Figaro gold, a pot of wholly kaw fougere. That's what i can remember though I believe there may be more. Having just finished the Figaro yesterday, I am going...

    🐗 Decemboar. Yup. It’s a thing! 🐗

    Man I really wonder what type of boar brushes you guys are using. None of my boars (over a dozen) eat lather. In fact, they get flingin' lather all over the bathroom. Maybe its boars that are not broken in???? One of the great mysteries of life I guess....

    Top Tier UN-scented Soap Suggestions

    I will second Mystic Water Sensitive. I think it is the best performing of all of her soaps, which all perform very well.

    No matter what anyone says, in my notsohumble opinion, boar brushes are the best. Also, in the wild, a boar beats a badger every time. Today was a 610 for me as well, which lathered up my Figaro Gold like a wild man. Now granted, I use boar 98% of every month so...

    Its a good soap. The post shave feel is nice, but for me, I don't find the actual shave with it anything extraordinary. It's good, but I don't think it is a top tier product. To me, it is a GREAT smelling soap. While I do have some moderately hard water where I live, I have not had any...

    My Guess... 3017

    I lied to you all. I started the tube of Barbon but then after the first use, opened up a tub of Figaro Monsieur. I only got through one day with a cream. It’s not a bad cream. I was just really jonesing to use one of the TFS soaps I have and I will tell you, it doesn’t disappoint. It’s a...

    Car shopping

    You might be able to find a Kia Forte GT used in that range. It’s a fun little car to zoom around in. And, the modern Kia’s aren’t like the ones of yesteryear. Reliable, comfortable, and up to date.

    My Guess... 3017

    Started new victim today. No wasting time in between. My first shave revealed a very good performing cream with a nice fresh, barbershop like fragrance. It is less powdery than a U.S barbershop but a great real nice scent with many of the same notes. I like it.

    My Guess... 3017

    We had a good run Cella! Today, as I lathered the last bits in cup I smashed it into, it slipped out and down the drain before I could catch it. I could have gotten another shave, maybe two. I got some great shaves since starting that chunk on September 22ndish. I thought it would last...
