On every forum you'll meet members who talk such nonsense that they'll put themselves out of action and won't be taken seriously by me anymore. :augenroll1

Recently on the German forum there was a member who indicated that the Acqua di Parma had almost the same smell as Arko. :augenroll1

Then I answered that my Acqua was probably produced by another soap maker and has the most beautiful complex smell of all my soaps. :yes_nicken

Then this querulant answered that Acqua didn't produce any shaving soap itself.....gosh that was completely unknown to me. :kaputtlachen1

Great brush for todays growth. Great soap as well, forgot how great it smells, and Meißners quality is a known good quality.
The Bohin did a great job today, slightly different angle from last time and a world of difference. Tres Pret side for the forst two passes, pret for the last pass, and a buttery smooth shave, and great result. This is not a bad razor :)

Maigret delicious read I have all his books on the E-reader and of course the whole DVD series.

Recently I saw some new broadcasts of Maigret with "mister Bean" or Rowan Atkinson as Maigret was a strange sensation does not make it to the original.

@The King I also read it on my E-reader. And yes it is strange to see Rowan Atkinson playing Maigret.

I liked Bruno Cremer playing him. Rowan Atkinson wasn't nearly drinking enough and Maigret is sometimes a really ruthless person. Atkinson couldn't play that.

Brush and soap:
Simpsons LE TSN 2013 P8 Phyl #195 Best Badger and Meißner Tremonia Indian Flavour:
Yesterday too lazy to shave, so this morning double pleasure. The Simpsons LE TSN 2013 P8 Phyl #195 Best Badger well loaded with the Meißner Tremonia Indian Flavour. Nice foam to tackle the two day beard.
Blade and razor:
Used the PolSilver Super Iridium for the 2nd time.
This morning the real Polsilver Super Iridium in the R41. The cut of the blade is good. Nice sharp and no drag. The combination Mühle R41 (2013) with this Polsilver Super Iridium is fine. I don't want to make a clear conclusion yet, but there is a noticeable difference between the two Polsilver blades and that makes me think.
Result: BBS.
Finally: For the care today Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Tütün and Naturlife Krem Vazelin Argan Ve Aloevera Özlü. Nice scent from Loris E-181 Noir Man and I feel a lot better than yesterday at the same time with an unshaven head.

And what a discipline this King has, because the week started again with the use of the shaving soap and pre-shave from the layout range.

An example for many of a steeled iron backbone.:yes_nicken

You're absolutely right and it was more politically correct and the characteristic pipe was not nearly as present in the new series.

By the way, speaking about our hobby I sometimes wonder when I see Bruno's face how long it takes him to shave, because it is extremely gentle lavishing on his face. :Eek
