4.5 out of 5 stars

See the SLANTember thead for my thoughts on the razor. The soap however was perfect, super slick as Wholly Kow usually is and the scent while not what I would call an iced tea smell is wonderfully citrusy and interesting. A few weepers but otherwise a perfect shave.

Semogue Saturdays

Hello friends

Tempered Saturday around here. After a whole month of the stupendous Arko! and boar brushes only, today I was able to debut my new PdP 63 and go back to my favorite brush: Semogue SOC Mistura. The soap is very good, it provides fast and abundant lather, with a sleekness and protection, if not marvelous, above average. The fragrance is wonderful, which made me try a match with Pinaud Clubman Special with some success. The ever-present Saturday Green Cult 2.0 plate IV and my current favorite blade, Gillette Silver Blue (5), guaranteed me a deep yet smooth BBS. A shave from the Gods!

On this incredible journey, a real genius of the baritone saxophone: Serge Chaloff.

Have a nice weekend and great shaves.
