What have you “settled on”?
Settled is a terrible word. Settled is what you do when your in a marriage prison, she's got the key, and there's no way out. The minute you buy something new, you'll fight with the war department until you surrender, because you know, that is your only recourse. Because If you don't settle, the misses will put an opened stick of Arko under your pillow, making you think she had your side fumigated for dandruff insurgence.
I've only been traditional wet shaving with DE for 8-momths, close to 9 now. But in this time, I found my dream razor, a PAA Copper Ascension Twist Adjustable in Rose Gold. And since I fell in love with Stirling soaps, I've really taken a strong liking to Stirling Wintergreen shave soap.
I have also fallen in love with PAA Ice 2.0 PreShave Cube, it produces a slick lather on it's own, there's no question who the king of PreShave slickness is! My favorite shave brush is my Cayune Workshop Dark Nebula shave brush, with the 26mm Tuxedo synthetic knot. I also love my Cayune Workshop Dark Nebula matching shave bowl as well.
With blades, its gotta be Wizamets all the way. Nothing says sharp and smooth like having a Wizamets slice whiskers off. For aftershave, I'm going all in with Duke Cannons Ice Menthol aftershave balm. And because I'm addicted to menthol, there's nothing like that Chill Mill grinder from PAA, to bring the cool, to my lather.
For frags, I haven't tried very many, I'm not really a frag connoisseur. But if the ones I have tried, anything that smells like Creed Aventus is a winner for me. Stirling Executive Man EAU De Toilette is a favorite of mine. I'm thinking about trying out other alternatives as well
