Brush and soap:
Vulfix 404 Grosvenor mixed Badger and Boar Bristle and Le Père Lucièn - Rose de Pushkar:
Never experienced before, but with the Vulfix 404 Grosvenor mixed Badger and Boar Bristle whipped foam from Le Père Lucièn - Rose de Pushkar was not consistent. While I'm brushing I see the quality of the foam gradually decrease and the brush feels different than normal. Whether it's the water here I don't have a clue, because the previous days with the other soaps didn't really stand out that much. Always get a creamy foam. Well, I could shave, but not such a rich layer of foam.
Blade and razor:
The Gem Personna Pfte used for the 6th x.
The Gem Personna Pfte doesn't care much about the foam. As long as it's soaked and wet this razor goes through until it's really dull and that's certainly not the case after 6 times. In the Gem G Bar the Gem Personna Pfte is supple and effective. So nice and smooth again.
Result: BBS.
Finally: the foam quality does not affect the finish, but it does affect the perception, so nice splashing with the Ilgaz Rose Isparta to nourish the mood. Weleda Aftershave Balsam to nourish the skin and Rose Fernelle Provence et Nature Edt to nourish the pleasure of my surroundings.

I did a touch up of the straight razor. I had to do some work. It was a cold water shave. End result was not bad. About the smell of the clubman lilac vegetal a lot has been written and using it I can understand :)
