Shaving Soap/cream: Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet
Shaving Brush: Shavemac 28 mm. Silvertip Flat 2 bander

DE-Razor: Mühle Rocca
DE-Blade: Gillette Rubie 3x

Aftershave: Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet
Aftershave balm: Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet
Eau de Toilette: Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet

Like the Gamechanger 0.84, the Mühle Rocca is also a fantastic Razor. The Rocca clearly wins in efficiency, but the kinship I'm referring to - in addition to a fine shave - is the friendly price.
At least when compared to Razors like the Timeless, Paradigm's and Charcoals. With these Razors you can easily talk about hundreds of Euro's while the Gamechanger and Rocca cost around 80 Euro.
This makes their price/quality ratio in my humble opinion excellent but as always uekaz.

Brush and soap:
J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm and Le Père Lucièn - Cedre Patchouli:
My preference for shaving soap has slowly crystallised. Flowers (rose and lavender), fern (fougere scents), wood (preferably sandalwood, but cedar is also always appreciated), citrus (lime), a mix of leather, tar, whiskey etc. and basic scents (Arko, Tabac??). Choice enough and yet clear boundaries. So this morning with the very enjoyable J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm stirring in the Le Père Lucièn - Cedre Patchouli was no punishment. On the contrary. I like this soap with a strong and mystical scent. It also gives a perfect lather if you pay some attention to it, so nice start of the day.
Blade and razor:
Used the Treet Carbon Steel for the 4th time.
The Treet Carbon Steel had some trouble with the main head hair this morning. The beard went fine, but the back of the skull was stubborn work. I don't know if it is the combination Rockwell Razors 6s plate 5 with the Treet Carbon Steel. The face is nice and smooth again. Tomorrow I'll try again and see if the blade reaches my 5 standard, but I'm sure I'll have a new one ready.
Result: BBS.
Finally: nicely finished with a firm splash of Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Tütün, the Proraso Wood and Spice ASB, for which I have to find a worthy replacement and the Loris E-220 Dior Sauvage Very Cool. The latter is a new addition with a somewhat cedar-like and fougere blend with something fresh.

After shaving 10 shaves in 20 days with Merkur 37C, Lord, Dr Harris Arlington Shaving stick and Epsilon Blue on a moving ship, I was desperate to change the exuipment.
So this morning:

Henckels Friodur 17 1/2
Saponificio Varesino Dolomiti soap and ASL

It seemed that the bathroom was still moving.......

Graydog/Japanese Sugi Pine/2BED synthetic
Eufros - Tobacco
Ator 13/16
Tunney

Not a bad synth, this 2BED. Loses a bit of backbone because of the high loft. My largest brush, but not too large. I like it.
Third straightshave this year (fourth if you count the Feather AC SS), first time in two years the Ator is used.
