Nice kickstart of the week with Mühle Monday - effective, comfortable and smooth. This razor is definitely in my top 5 of all time.

Extended shave notes can be found here.

Enjoy your shave today!

Four weepers today, only. That's a good result for me and my face 😉 The Timeless Bronze .78 OC is a beautyful razor. But it's my most aggressive razor (it's sneaky in terms of biting without further warning)... I would have sold it already if there wasn't the .38 baseplate which hopefully will suit me way better. As some might recall I'm eagerly awaiting a friend of mine to import the plate to Germany. Bought the plate back in 2023.

I hope everyone's enjoying a relaxed Sunday!

Cheers, Comrades!
Forget the razor - that brush is my jam! :001_wub:
🪒 💈 🪒 💈 SOTD - “Matchy Matchy" Theme Week - May 27th to June 2nd, 2024 🪒 💈 🪒💈

May 2024 Gentlemanly Restraint Until Month End (GRUME)

Hello friends

Misty start to the week here. To somehow follow the theme of this week's SOTD I continue chasing the scent of roses and this time I combine Mike's Rose, Patchouli & Cedarwood soap with Guerlain Habit Rouge EdT which has these scents in its middle notes. A match made in Heaven.

Greencult 2.0 II, Gillette Platinum Light Blue (3), Semogue SOC Mistura and Floïd Mentolado Suave were magnificent.

With us, the wonderful voice of Dorothy Dandridge.

Rating: 10

Have a nice week and great shaves!
