Razor: Wolfman WR1
Blade: Vintage NOS Personna P74 (1)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel
Scent: Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve

The vintage P74 blades were bonded together tightly, and the usual alcohol soak and gentle heating were unsuccessful in freeing them up.
A little dispenser surgery, and they are now all neatly tucked away in a Wilkie box; albeit the one I loaded into the WR1.
The better blades from the Golden Era are something else; you just have to gently brush them across your face and they erase growth as if it is simply not there.
The bold Clubman Special Reserve scent was a good foil for the Lavanille soap scent.

Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Aqua Velva Musk
Nice aromatic coffee scent from soap and lather. Lather quality is somehow mediocre. Shave with razor and blade...very nice, smooth and comfortable. 3 multiple passes with satisfactory result. Seems like there were some tiny creepers but upon closer inspection, there were none. Post & Aftershave was great! Rating 9/10.
