    Fireplace crackling in the background, gentle, comforting
    A pile of cushions making a nest for two
    Cognac glasses, cheese and dried fruits on the small table
    The glow from the fire reflecting in her eyes
    Dancing, alive
    Her smile filling the room with joy
    The time slips by unnoticed

    Once again Fougère Bourbon Rose delivers on an early morning shave

    The Icarus base is a much harder soap than the Bison Tallow, and I think all things being equal I like the Bison a little more.​

    Work has been crazy busy so my SOTD posts have thinned out but time this morning for a quick one. Beautiful HeV Absinthe joined by the splash courtesy of a @TomG PIF. I really like this base and the scents are divine to my nose.

    Pre: my lemon Myrtle pre shave oil
    Rockwell R4 w/Polsilver
    Yaqi Timberwolf
    Fine Fresh Vetiver
    Anherb balm

    Fine soaps are great! Very creamy lather that whips up very fast!

    The scents are great although I think I had a very slight irritation from this one. Nothing major but noticeable.

    quick shave this morning so no time for a straight razor shave. I thought I had had gone off this base plate, but I got great results this morning, so a happy chappy. Not so happy about having to fork out for a brand new motor for our heating. It seems like everything is breaking at once at the moment.

    Easy two passes for a satisfying shave.Used a little more water with the MWF than I usually do and this helped with the blade gliding a bit easier and the Bengall was working very well.No blood and that is always good after using a straight.

    Tortoise shell is about as avant garde as I like to take it with my brush colours :D

    Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
    Brush: Paladin Lotus Select Badger
    Soap: Declaration Grooming Colonia Balsamica
    Razor: Rockwell 6C (4)
    Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium (1)
    Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel / Myrsol Emulsion
    Scent: Acqua Di Parma Colonia

    First shave with the Rockwell 6C, loaned by the ever-generous @Greenpike. I took his advice that it was on the mild side for an adjustable, and set my first shave using the 4 plate.
    Quite a bit of blade feel, but a very smooth shave with no irritation whatsoever. I just went with the basic three passes, as it was my first shave with this razor, and I was at a mid-aggressive setting. A DFS and good rangefinder for future shaves. The Declaration soap again displayed top tier performance - very slick and cushioning, with excellent razor glide. The scent, both off the puck and when lathering, is to my snozzer very close to the opening of ADP Colonia, which I think is a considerable achievement.
