What is your favorite set-up?

I know a question like this comes along every now and then but it's fun to see what everyone's favorite set-up is right now.
If you had to pick just one razor, one brush, one soap, and one aftershave, what would that be. A picture would be nice if you can.
My current favorite set-up is:

razor: Parker 97R
brush: Chubby2 synthetic
soap: Nivea stick
aftershave: Cella

Before I found B&B I always used the same set-up year after year. I could be happy just using this set-up forever.
(Of course it's more fun to mix things up sometimes.)

This is hard.
One soap: Cella Bio
One splash: Cella Bio
One blade: GSB
One Brush: my Jayaruh Horse hair
One Razor: can't. Gillette NEW SC and a pre-war Tech. I could use the same handle though. 😇
 
Soap: Tabac.
Brush: Semogue 2016 Foro Afeitado LE.
Blade: Feather.
Splash: Vintage Faberge Brut, before the Brut 33 rebrand.
Razor: Eclipse Red Ring, Leresche #34, or Henckels Henso. OK, if I have to choose then the Eclipse takes it.

Soap: MdC
Brush: Paladin El Dorado
Blade: Personna Medical Prep blade
Razor: Wolfman WR 2-SB 1.05
Aftershave: Thayers Rose Petal WH + DR Harris Arlington Aftershave Milk.
 
To date: Proraso white soap, Typical Omega boar brush, Merkur Progress razor with an Astra SP blade. It may all change soone, as I received a Rockwell 6S yesterday, and had my first successful straight/shavette shave today...
 
One soap: Tabac
One splash: D.R. Harris Pink
One blade: GSB
One Brush: SOC Boar
One Razor: Gillette Red Tip
Ahh....yes! The Red Tip!!! Might be the one if I really had to choose! I have 3 and just haven't used them in awhile since I've been on an OC kick lately. One of Gillette's best. The King of TTO for sure! Thank you for reminding me of my lost love that kicked my adustables (all 3 iterations) to the curb.

Mine changes like the wind, but this would be my preferred assortment of shaving gear that I enjoy at this moment in time!
Razor : Oneblade Core- excellent daily driver + minimal irritation+ minimal cuts & weepers.
Blade: Gem SS PTFE modified- just a great all around blade.
Soap: Razorock Santa Maria del Fiore "Firenze" -Great scent and lather properties.
Brush: Yaqi tuxedo knot 24mm Synthetic- great brush with some back bone with soft whisker tips and creates great lather.
Aftershave: Razorock XXX- very nice with a freshness scent when it settles out.
Balm :Avon "True Gent"- very nice balm scent.
Ultimate shave Gear for this moment in time! (2).jpg
Soap in my customized lather bowl is left over from morning shave.
Have some great shaves!

Hello Cal, I knew you liked Proraso red Sandal wood aftershave and so do I. I'm not a minimalist as of now but I might change. I had a touch of Rad in 2019 recovering from Surgery and got bored possibly.
Have some great shaves Cal.

I keep trying to be a minimalist also but it seems like an up hill battle.
