I keep for getting how much I love the scent of Group Captain's Blend, smells more relaxing than Tabac in the winter season. This soap is a REAL MUST have into your bloody den, otherwise, you’re really missing out on this amazing smell of Group Captain's Blend during the winter season shave.
I'm not sure @klinker assumed we'd be tripping when looking at his photos.
I read a very interesting book recently on psychedelics. Had no idea just how significant they were in the development of modern history.
The last two shaves have been super smooth but not as efficient as I'd like...? Normally I bin a blade after 5-6 solid shaves but seeing as the Polsilver SI's is showing no drag I decided to keep using it.
Great performance from the soap, the brush continues to delight me with the Rhodium, handle and colour scheme working so well! Finished off with some cologne and balm for two great SOTD... Happy shaves!
