SE SOTD- What was your tool of choice today?



Oneblade v1 / FHS10 (7)
WSO Coconut Lime / Fine Fresh Vetiver

Fine Fresh Vetiver is my favorite AS splash, a subtle scent that stays close to skin for most of the day. I recently received an email announcing that Fresh Vetiver is being discontinued, I ordered 2 while they are still in stock.

If you like the scent of a quality unenhanced vetiver reminiscent of Creed Original Vetiver, but prefer a scent with a subtler projection, consider getting a bottle before they run out!

My Second use of this "Hampshire" Wool Fat soap, produced my UK Artisan soap maker. It really is good - not only does it facilitate a Shave but the post shave feel is so good, the skin feeling soft and refreshed.
