    @gabba32 Where did you buy those samples from? They look intriguing!

    I reveived my first shaving mail call in aeons! Have really been enjoying my r89 which I bought from @Cris a couple of months ago (been having the best shaves of my life!!!) and splashed out on a nice aftershave which is something I've always wanted, plus these soaps/cream:

    I have a question because in many ways I'm still a newbie to this - is it generally advised to buy an aftershave with its matching soap, or is it fine to use a particular aftershave as a stand-alone? Either way I'm super excited about my first APR product (actually apart from TOBS those are firsts in all of the brands :p)

    addendum: just occurred to me that the word 'neophyte' is a better fit than 'newbie' lol

    When did you place your order @Rami? I placed my order on the 22/06. Suspect I'll be waiting a while. Expected this though.

    I prefer to have matching sets, or atleast match the scent notes where I can. But I notice a lot of people don't stick to that formula.

    That Ozymandias will go great with the Spitfire I think. I have never tried the Seville, but being a barber shop scent, I guess it would pair ok with most things as well?

    Xerjoff Richwood and Kampuchea Noir Attars arrived today. A couple of reserve B&M Sinfonia’s, a greatly underrated soap.

    Sorry, @Rami I was in a hurry yesterday afternoon getting ready for Lodge, I didn't have much time to answer your question correctly sorry about that.

    I ordered my full set of CB Karve razor on the 25th May and the package was sent on the 24th June, that's nearly a whole month waiting for my CB Karve razor and was shipped on the 24th June and takes 17 days for International shipping to arrive in the Land of OZ into my Australian Post parcel locker for me to collect yesterday.

    Two days ago I finally received my Rockwell 6C (stupidly slow shipping, thanks DHL) I wont bother posting a pic as you all know what it looks like :)
    But I must say after 2 shaves i am very impressed. 3 days growth on plate 3 and an Astra blade and it just mowed the stubble down. The area of my neck that gets usually irritated did not flare up at all. After 3 passes I can say its probably the closest and best shave I have had in a long time. Believe the hype

    All I wanted is the shipping duration. And you answered exactly what I needed to know. I placed my order a while ago already.

    All good.
