    The Colonia hat box is for me, I’ll keep one of the Ambra and Essenza. (I’ve just had a squirt and I’d forgotten how good Essenza is) The rest I’ve bought as gifts for others.

    You do know that they offer brightly coloured brushes don;t you? You don't have to go with plain old boring black.....

    Brightly coloured brushes are like fragrances used out of season, gauche.

    Winterfell and Winterfall and two very different fragrances...wearing Winterfall would be appropriate while wearing Winterfell would not. Try and keep up Rusty :D

    When I have a little time I'm going to post a fragrance/perfume seasonal guide, and included in it will be a section that explores and discusses the whole issue of notes listed in a fragrance as opposed to how they are experienced. From my general reading on this forum (and on FB and other wet-shaving forums) over the last year or so in particular, people are quite understandably a bit confused and perplexed. It will be a no bullshit, no perfume waffle kind of guide/explanation too, aimed at wet-shavers.

    Some people are not going to like it and run with "I like it I will wear it whenever and Tobacco and Agarwood is awesome in the middle of summer" which is fine (go on be gauche) but for the others I just feel the area urgently and comprehensively needs some explanation and discussion as a whole. I think most people will go "aha! so that's what it is about" but time will tell. The explanation uses a really simple, easily understood model too.

    Finally got that birth razor I had been hunting for over a year. Very happy with it; original and in excellent condition. Very lightly used if at all.
