Felt like really utilizing some of my spring scents here on the morning of the time change. I need to dedicate some time to old gem razors again, they work really well for me everywhere but my neck.

Round two... Today I used the "+" base plate and man was it good. I was impressed with my initial run when I used the "original" but this one was a noticeable step up in efficiency. I wouldn't feel bad if I only had the original to use but given the choice, I'm on board with the plus.

My software for today comes from a new artisan, Night Watch Soap Company in the form of Midnight Moods. It has scent notes of pineapple, citrus, geranium, limewood, sage, cedar, musk, and vetiver. As you can see it has some fruit and floral notes blended together but to me the overall accord is floral. I find it bright, clean, and pretty with an attractive quality.

With a soft Yaqi Purple Haze synthetic brush and a well-designed Fine Accoutrements Fine Lather Bowl, I whipped up a nice big bowl of fluffy lather. The soap is vegan in case you're wondering and though thirsty, it easily blows up when worked and is very slick on the face. If you're looking for a unique, pleasant-smelling, slick soap you can't go wrong with Midnight Moods from Night Watch Soap Company.

I did a four-pass shave appreciating my time with both the razor and soap. Each was a pleasure in its own right and helped me achieve a sweet bbs face.

Being in the floral wheelhouse, I chose the also beautiful 42 from Barrister & Mann. Though not with the identical notes as Midnight Moods I still felt it was a fine match. Turns out I was right based on the compliment I received afterward.

I want to wish you all a great day. Thanks for reading and as always, enjoy your shaves.
My first time trying Wet The Face products did not disappoint! I really dig how Donald comes up with these movie and tv show themed products, and since the Peaky Blinders was one of my favorite shows, I went with a set of their "Thomas Shelby's Signature Scent" (which is really nice). The hardware used includes a medium CaYuen bowl, PAA Astraeus brush, a Gillette Old Type razor loaded with a Gillette Platinum blade.

Brush: Shavemac "Kleiner Bayer" 14/42 Silvertip D01 2-Band
Soap: Clubman
Razor: Gillette NEW Flat Bottom GT
Blade: Gillette 7o'clock Black (6)
ASL: Aqua Velva Ice Blue

A very pleasant shave. :biggrin:

There were no mishaps today, now that my new Aqua Velva Ice Blue is in a bottle I can dispense from accurately. :whistling:

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:
