SOTD JULY 23rd
July 2023 GRUME


Hello friends

This weekend I didn't shave on Saturday as usual. Instead I did a late Sunday shave. And since I felt pretty lazy, I opted for a cream instead of a soap to deal with my 4-day beard. For that I chose the R41 with Wizamet (2), Proraso Blue and Semogue SOC Mistura. I finished with the stupendous Alpa Windsor AS. A wonderful BBS.

With us, Gerry Mulligan.

Rating: 10


Have a nice Sunday evening and great shaves.

Post 1: P.A.A. Alum w/ No-Slip Grip System & Dry Dock System
Post 2: Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Deep Cleansing Astringent w/ Menthol & Eucalyptus
Aftershave: P.A.A. Doppelganger Oxblood

Mine and my lady's baby shower was yesterday and this was my shave of the day in preparation. Obviously, it was a busy day so I had no time to post.

So, Doppelganger Oxblood... I chose this software because it's just so freakin' good! As of right now, this is my favorite scent of '23. Seriously! If you pass on this one, you'll never know. But I will! Lol.

It's an homage to Penhaligon's Sartorial. Which may not mean a lot to you if you're unfamiliar with the brand or fragrance. But believe me when I tell you both Penhaligon and Sartorial are legendary.

I'm actually wishing I bought a backup set and some of the other offerings in this scent since I don't know how long it will be before we see this release again.

The Aylsworth Kopparkant Plus very much fit into the color scheme and is a fantastic razor that I'm still excited to use. It's both smooth and efficient with just the right amount of blade feel. I'm really digging all aspects of this razor.

All in all this was a great shave! I easily walked away with a bbs and was smelling like a true gentleman, ready to welcome our family and friends.

Take care and enjoy your shaves.
