3017'd the sample of Stirling Deep Blue Sea. Got another puck coming shortly. Of the eight samples I bought from Stirling, this is my favorite. I'm thinking of getting Bleu de Chanel EDT to pair with it. It's such a great scent.
Have a great day, Gentlemen!

Birthday shave so it felt appropriate to use a razor made the year I was born. I would like to be in as good shape as this lovely Diplomat — the shave was smooth, comfortable, close and without the slightest drama. Much like me Seriously though, this year just making it this far somehow seems like accomplishment enough.
My biggest razor, brush and AS format.
Was waiting to skip a day without shaving to finally shave with the DS cosmetic Z0. Was also using that brush for the 2nd time. This razor was designed to perfectly fit the rule "No pressure, let the weight of the razor do the work". It's big, it's heavy, it's efficient. I'm happy that I've been able to do the 3 passes without any cuts or nicks with an Astra sp. The brush is fantastic and easily release lather, it doesnt stay jammed inside. Havent used Tabac since TabOCtober and when I opened the stick the scent filled the bathroom.

The GSC Espresso is really a terrific razor. Smooth, maneuverable, and surprisingly efficient. After an ace lather from the DG, the razor knocked a ton of the stubble down with the first pass. A smooth second pass cleaned it up nicely. Face feels comfortable and very smooth, just how I like it.
