    Early month Avon acquisition! This baby is more green than menthol. Interesting and I'd not heard of it before. $5!

    Dropped into The Stray Whisker on the way home through Lithgow on Monday and scored some Saponificio Varesino Felce Aromatica triple milled soap, Barrister and Mann Seville soap and AS, and The Sudsy Soapery Lavender & Peppermint. Can't recommend The Stray Whisker highly enough. Con and Kim are fantastic to deal with. Really enjoyed dropping in and learnt a lot too. @FluffyGroodle - visit to the candy shop.
    Then when I got home Australians All was waiting at the Post Office. This lot will have to wait as I've still got a fair bit of gear ahead of me in the Travelling Box #4B. Test lathered the Felce Aromatica though and it was magnificent. Take back what I said about Italian soaps.

    @SchoolForAnts this would have made a better label for the soap :D

    Nearly forgot this. One Semogue 1305 Boar. Hanging out to try this too but using brushes I'm familiar with whilst working on the travelling box. My wife thinks my boar brushes ugly but she likes this one which makes a purchase easier.

    A reverse aquisition - had my Pitralon Swiss confiscated at airport as it is a 160ml bottle
    What an idiot - I knew 100ml was max, but took the chance and lost out ☹️

    Another reverse aqcuisition!
    My friendly security attendant added to my Swiss Pitralon misery by also confiscating a tub of German shaving soap, despite it clearly being labeled as Rasierseife. It was a new artisanal Brand - can’t recall the name, but looked good. I insisted it be opened, and it was a croap similar to Cella, but the Joker was having none of it and binned them both (or maybe took home for personal use?)

    What possible reason could security have for confiscating soap?

    He may have been looking for the EU approval mark, all soaps sold in the EU have to be marked with the insignia to confirm that they use approved compounds prior to being sold or possessed. I am currently going through the process with AP Reserve, compiling an intelligence dossier on the soaps and having the compounds checked against CAS and the EU equivalents.
