    Enjoying using this soap, the scent scenery changes. Today I was picking up more orange citrus but later the earthy lavender, camphor notes. I love using the Asylum occasionally but not as daily driver unless I stuck to one pass.

    Fantastic lather from the tiki soap! Truly wonderful soap with a pleasant subtle scent.

    The EJ brush is my smallest synthetic but it's so awesome!

    Gave the blade a good strop and worked fine.Whipped up a nice creamy slick lather with the Proraso and two passes for a standard smooth straight result.Bloodless too by the way and zero irritation,even on the chin.

    A fantastic 3 pass shave resulting in a near BBS finish (missed a bit under the nose). Love the grape bubblegum scent from the soap and performance wise it's a winner :) Loaded up the larger knot and whipped up some creamy lather in under 30 seconds which was great! Very smooth and efficient from the Charcoal razor head and the blade is quickly becoming one of my favourites. Finished off with the delightful balm and I'm ready to go to work a happy chappy (y) Goodnight P&C community and happy shaves!!!

    A booty call collection if ever there was one. Lol. No, I'm just trying out new gear. The Nacet blades are excellent in the R41 but I'm still preferring the white Gillette Stainless for perfection. The Local Gent Blackmoor was an impulse discounted buy from Maggards to pad out my Roam purchase. Great performing soap that suggested blooming which I did. Very good indeed. I like the sweetish, woody scent but it's a 2 rather than a 5 out of the tub in strength which is probably why it was discounted. No idea why the whole horror woods styling on the label except for a tenuous Holloween tie-in. I don't find it a dark scent at all myself... Valobra is more a Holloween scent!!

    Being such a gentle scent meant any post combo was possible so went for my new Reef Point Submariner AS which is a sweetish tonka bean and patchouli love-in scent too. This I liked a lot and it made be think of Versace Eros as the EdT to finish.

    I'm lickable right now. This is a lady friendly shave indeed.

    Shaving is almost a luxury these days. So busy I go days between shaves. It's always very therapeutic when I have lot of growth to see it fall off leaving me clean and smooth. Today was just one of those shave with 4 days growth after working bulk hours on the weekend. I took the opportunity to test drive the tweaked formula (plus plus post shave!) and scent. Full marks all around. My daughter went to the bathroom after my shave and came out asking "what smells so nice". :)

    So pleased you went with the VPS suggestion. And great to hear that scent strength is that good. I was thinking that 2 of my order would be presents but now... they’ll all be mine!

    I wish I picked up the EdT! So far it and apr winterfall are my top cold day scents, unfortunately I can't wear winterfall to work because the guy in the desk next to me starts sneezing and complaining about a "dusty" smell lol. That's just from the aftershave

    Would you say these razors give and aggressive or mild shave? I was looking at them yesterday, I love the vintage bronze look. So steam punk!

    APR splashes last for a long time. My best suggestion is to have in the next desks women, as I do have. Then the complaining will be automatically transformed into compliments :D
    You should talk about it with your boss, as I did :ROFLMAO:. In my galley, of 12 desks, only three are males (one is me, and other is just in the far place from my desk, my boss). I am sure he would try to annoy me if sitting closer, but then I would annoy him back :whistle: :p

    I do work in quantitative science (3 black screens on a row with colored text that needs to be compiled or executed hahahaha). But still, there are so many 'hens' wanting to work with whales, seals etc, that they almost outnumber us.... so at the end I am the handy man that told them how to do something, and also I do most of the fieldwork, I can show them my pictures with seals or in Antarctica etc.... so I am well cared by the 'hens' too hahaha

    Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Alt Innsbruck Emulsion
    Brush: Tony Forsyth P&C LE 2017 Platypus
    Soap: Declaration Grooming Trimegistus
    Razor: UFO Goliath / ATT SE1
    Blade: Schick Proline P-30 (1)
    Post: Alt Innsbruck Emulsion
    Scent: Terre D'Hermes EDT

    Don't think I will bloom the Declaration soap in the jar again - it is quite soft, and hence went a bit mushy. Nothing that a quick bit of lathering in the Little Wren bowl couldn't fix. This soap is thirsty and very, very slick. Three passes for a DFS+ shave, and a very nice post-shave feel. The scent of the soap is very similar to Terre D'Hermes, making the scent choice obvious.

    Do not misunderstand, it's not that the guy just does not like the smell, it actually sends him into a bit of a hay fever spin. Sniffing, sneezing and blowing his nose. It would be a bit of a dick move to pretend to not know what was going on and continue to wear it every day.
