Brush and soap:
Mühle Silvertip Fibre® 21mm and Martin de Candre Rose:
This morning I had the opportunity to try the roses from MDC. A friend from a FB shaving group gave me a firm sample and I immediately put it in the brush. The Mühle Silvertip Fibre® 21mm lightly loaded with some Martin de Candre Rose and just whip it. That stuff is so economical in use and gives such a nice foam that it is a pleasure to shave with it. Then the scent of the roses turns out to be quite right too. For comparison I have Vulvix Old English Rose and LPL Rose de Pushkar plus some other roses, which don't matter here. I'm ready, the LPL is nice with just a little more soapy fragrance and the roses are not so sparkling, the Vulvix is moving to the 3rd place and the MDC is so good foam, rose scent, which is not strong at all, but so subtly present, that it is a pleasure. Going to find it almost worth its money, but for that I have to use it a few more times and that's possible too, because I got a firm sample! My spouse completely agrees with me after an olfactory test.
Blade and razor:
Used the Gem Personna Pfte for the 7th time.
The Gem Personna Pfte blade also had a revival this morning and did its job properly. In the Ever-Ready Ambassador the Gem Personna Pfte was fine on cut and the beard and head hairs went off easily.
Result: BBS.
Finally: Some splashing with the PeReJa Rose edc, lubricating with the Regina Floris Rose Oil of Bulgaria ASG and another puff Rose Fernelle Provence et Nature and I still smell like roses. Lovely.

Yesterday:

Shavemac zebra/beehive/24/56/bulb/Silvertip/D01
CBL Tonsorial - Roasted Outmeal Stout
Frankendonia
Treet (1)
Tunney

The oatmeal chocolate cookie smell of the CBL did not resemble my Stout I drank earlier in the afternoon, but nobody cares, as smell and shavingproperties are top notch.
My Frankendonia is an adapted Wardonia, that takes normal blades. I now have to find out if the topcap comes from a different brand or is a very old Wardonia one. Still: good shave.

What's the quality of the Cyril shaving soap?
I've been on the verge of buying this soap from Paul Kox a couple of times only the faint Lavender smell of the shaving soap stopped a purchase but still it keeps attracting me.

If I wanted to buy it the other day it was sold out, you'll always see.

The Proraso shaving brush is a stubborn little pig. :hammer1
Now after having used it 25 times I think 60% of the hair still hasn't split.
When I compare this with the Omega and Semoque shaving brushes I've had this is rather disappointing.
