Razor - Timeless SS 0.95 OC

Timeless is still the king of smooth; impressive every time. The software was a real treat. I don't get a lot of the oud until the splash, but it's killer regardless.

Razor: Gillette Slim Adjustable 3/5
Blade: King C Gillette (8)
Brush: Omega 10098
Lather: Proraso Green
PAA Scuttle
Post: cold water, witch hazel
AS: Brut

My first experience with Proraso Green. How invigorating. The cream is great at making lather and the menthol is so refreshing. Easily enough lather for 3+ passes. I should probably get the matching after shave, but the Brut works well with the cream fragrance. Very pleasant shave. 8/10
