    This is a find from the wild for $10. It was almost completely black all over and I assumed it was some sort of German travel-sized Gillette New clone... but the tarnish on the head looked very much like silver tarnish so I thought it was worth a gamble at that price. Thanks, Guildford! So I cracked out the polish gear just now and suddenly all the details (and logos) appeared.

    I think this is a Gillette Canadian Tuckaway (based on the handle) but it could be a frankenrazor. The head is silver and the handle is gold. It has a serial number and the diamond Gillette logo. Does anyone have any more ideas?

    Oh, and my daughter found me a full Avon aftershave that smells divine. Sadly there is no sticker but this is on the Pinaud Special Reserve / Brut end of the scale. This is 70s man!

    It's amazing and the cologne/aftershave is Wild Country... based on my nose and researching classic Avon scents. Wow. There is a party on my face.

    I just call all omelette and omelette, it's large amounts of eggs and what ever veggies I have in the fridge at the time, can you tell I'm no foodie?

    Couple of eggs, little cream and the truffle slivers on top. It was yum!

    Another of the beautiful soap containers from SV and a refill set. The lather from the SV is just superb and the Stella Alpina has a beautiful fragrance :)

    These arrived today .. trying an after shave balm. Had a sample of Stray Whiskers which I liked but saw this as something to accompany the soap. Not a fan of After Shave Lotions.

  12. It used to be a bovine aphrodisiac for bulls! REALLY! Trust me... I'm an old cattle man! I believe it was removed from sale many years ago in Australia after some hapless & moronic humans tried it on themselves! I don't think they were Spaniards... more likely Queenslanders! :sneaky::woot::joyful: Now all you young blokes have learned something new! I'll bet you're all on Google tonight!

    Just gave them all a run through the brush .. the Dance of Agrumes seems to be the strongest scent, but not much difference between them for lather .. even to Washington's Blend which seems to me to have a very basic but pleasant scent. Can't wait till King of Oud and it's after shave balm are made and sent!

    @Phil you've got a lot of catching up to do on the donkey milk because I've got 6, and I'm still waiting on the King of Oud which is going to be 7 all up ;)

    I'm keen to see how these go in "The General". So far the Feather Professionals are the best in this razor for me.
