Have you got the three plates?
Yes

What plate do you use?
The mildest one. I can't remember what it is called.

Do you have an issue with loading with the injector and blunting blades?
I think I know what you mean. The "scraping" noise if you inject directly from the side?
Yeah. It bothers me. So I dismantle the razor and place the blade in manually. It only takes a few seconds and ensures that I haven't blunted anything.
I'll emphasise that I don't know for sure if it's causing any trauma to the blade; it just gives me the willies. So I figure why take the risk?

A 1948 English made Gillette Aristocrat #15 with rhodium plating for just $10?



The Krona they had was more. It needs a polish. At that price it should.
So the thing fell apart during polishing. I've had so much fun working out how to put it back together, fixing the crimping and thoroughly cleaning, polishing and oiling it inside and out. The rhodium looks brand new and I'm pretty proud.

Mail called today, two Barrister & Mann.

The white tub is the Fougere Angelique (Angel) which is a light scent of Lime, Lavender, Lemon, Neroli, Geranium, Tonka Bean, Cedar, Balsam Fir, Sandalwood, Smoldering Flame, Oakmoss. (Spring and Summer Season)

The dark red/black tub is the Fougere Gothique (Devil) which is the dark scent of Lavender, Oakmoss, Tonka, Balsam Fir, Bergamot, Vetiver, Geranium, Cedar, Earth, Sandalwood, Musk, Leather. (Autumn and Winter Season)

I have no idea what’s the scent smell like which are Smoldering Flame and Geranium.
Sounds like bull 💩

I’m only interested in the brush, looking for feedback review.
It's a soft, thin knot that's lost about 10 bristles in the process of my first shave with it. Synthetic without much backbone. Yaqi is the place to get affordable brushes BUT if you were travelling sans your normal brush and couldn't find an Omega, it's fine for a bowl lathering man like me.

Sounds like you’ve been pissed on that crappie boar brush, it’s not worth it in my den.

Thanks anyway 🥃🥃

Both are exceptional- The Fougère angelique is an exclusive to Maggards razors (still in stock)and while there is a splash, there will be no Edt/EdP and I'm gutted, its such a beautiful fragrance. Having to make do with just the splash is killing me!

Never mind @todras you can always make your own EDT/EDP very close or similar to the Fougère Angelique scent ;):happy: and you’ll feel sexy again
