Dude, I’m kind of with you on A&e. It shaves great, then smells bizarre.

Sv has ruined a lot of other soaps for me.


Yeah I’m getting the feeling they might do the same for me. This is going to Ajax even though it was free. Just not my style.

Dude, I would have to gather together the brushes in storage and the brushes at home to put together what I bought in 2019. It was bad.... :lol:

The Soft heart shit is fuckjing awesome. This smells like hazlenut, but it has the piney woodiness of Diamond. Awesome.
Day 2 with the vintage Krona and Eversharp. Awesome.
Day 3 with Terror drops just because. They're awesome.
I have to use Heritage brushes for a while because of the dude's good service.
10/10

So. I gave away my Italian Blue Fougere soap a while back when it burned me. It came as a brick. Gorgeous scent. Pretty sure it was made by TFS.
Used it today in my mug. Amazing. Loved it. Great shave. Great lather. Great scent. If you can get it at a crazy price from IB, I recommend it. I think it was like $7 for the brick this time around.
RR BF aftershave = equally good. It kind of smells like a drunk person wearing too much parfum. I like it.
Sabre was pretty good today.
I am loving terror drops. LOL
Thater boar is like peas and carrots with Italian soft soap
10/10

EDIT: Blue Fougere Soap is on sale for $11.99 for a 300g brick. It's pretty awesome stuff.

EDIT EDIT: or you can get the soap and aftershave for $19.99. Down from $34.

I gotta tell ya... I'm really digging Catie's Bubbles aftershaves.
I have Midnight Dreary, La Terre Verte and now, Le Piment de la Vie... they are all awesome. They are the "before and after" versions.

I'm not sure I can describe Le Piment de la Vie... spicy but not as potent as Adagio, with some sweet floral but, not rose or lavender... can't put my finger on it. It also has that unusual menthol that they use in Midnight Dreary... menthol with eucalyptus? Great stuff.
Midnight Dreary is my fav followed by Le Piment de la Vie.
La Terre Verte is more of a standard, men's scent... like you'd get at Macy's cologne dept.

EDIT: I also have Catie's Bubbles 322 before and after shave - also great stuff. I think it was a limited run. Smells like Phoenix Vetiver Planet, but better and not as strong.

Made a super lather with the RR Gold Label stick and Sterling Lemon Chill.
Man, the Stirling Lemon Chill is really, really CHILL!!!! Holy cow! :lol:
The lather was thick and heavy... could have added some more water to it but, it worked fine.
Still working the Sticky - great razor.
Stupefacente ROCKS!!!
Weekend SAS 10/10 Fuck BBS!!!

Ajax, cool shave!!
Image

Today was special for me, but it almost wasn’t.
1. Had an awesome, sensual, vivid vision of a dream that involved the Sv 70th. I was forced by fate to use it. It delivered.
2. This brush is my freebie from heritage after my other one broke. Awesome service. Awesome new knot that isn’t made of pubes.
3. Gem bullet tip. I like this more than the open comb. Incredible.
4. Terror drops. Awesome.

My so put tremendous pressure on me to rush, and I didn’t let it ruin my shave.

It was just awesome. 10/10. Epic really.

I'm getting spoiled by awesome shaves. I don't know what's happening, but I think my face got stronger.
This Noble Otter scent is amazing. It's kind of like Soap Commander Serenity mixed with APR Fougere Trois. Amazing Scent. Great Performance.

I think I accidentally used this blade 6 times. Still gave me a great shave, but one side was noticeably failing more than the other.

LOVE my Wild West brushes.

10/10. BBS perfection. Barbedeaux feels so nice all day. BTW< I spritzed on some Saponificio Varesino Cubebe EDP. Amazing.

Another truly epic shave. I'm on a streak. This one was ridiculously good. SV = invincibility + luxury.
Image

The vintage Polsilver was really good. Not quite as smooth as the Blue Plat, but still wonderful. On par with a Minora or a 7 OC yellow.

The blackbird is a masterpiece.

This brush is pure luxury. Grizzly Bay chubby. 30mm SHD Maggards.

SV = perfection all around.
Terror drops are so fun. I love it.
11/10
