Wednesday, April 3, 2024

Pre-Shave: Warm water splash / YBN Glycerin
Razor: Mühle R89 Traditional Rosegold
Blade: Wizamet Super Iridium (1)
Brush: Arno Classic #12, Gen5 synthetic
Bowl: DSC scuttle
Soap: Barrister and Mann - Fougere Classique (sample)
Alum: none
A/S: Witchhazel (not pictured), Murphy & McNeil - Magh Tured Aftershave Balm
EdP: Byredo - Oud Immortel

A regular shave today with some old friends and some new friends. The R89 performed as reliable as ever and the Wizamet produced in two passes (WTG, ATG) a nice CCS. This is the last Wizamet in this tuck and it will have another appearance probably next week.

B&M's Fougere Classique is a lovely soap. I purchased a full tub of B&M's spice and two samples of Fougere Classique and Seville. B&M soaps get so much praise that I finally comitted to a full tub; but I also wanted to sample a few other scents. The soap is one of the easiest to lather, especially with this ultra-dense synthetic brush from Arno. I also feel very comfortable post-shave with no dryness whatsoever. The scent is great and very approachable. Can't wait to try the others.

I layered some witch hazel I got in a sampler before applying aftershave balm and I feel that it is great additional item post-shave, as irritation has always been a small issue for me. It's a sample I got with my order of Old Spice Classic. I couldn't chose the scent though and ended up with Rose. It isn't a big problem as the scent disappears after a few minutes.

This shave was completed with Byredo's Oud Immortel.

Wishing all of you great shaves.
