I already like the scent of Varen, but with a drop of menthol it seems to bloom more and off course the cooling effect is nice.

Brush and soap:
J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm and Wars:
A fine shave with simple stuff, at least as far as the ingredients are concerned, not the hardware. J&T® Zebrano OUMO Brush SHD WT (Super High Density, White Tips) finest 2-band badger 24 mm with Wars shaving cream from Poland. Costs little and lathers like a top-notch soap. General, but certainly not unpleasant, smell while shaving. Soaks the beard in just fine.
Blade and razor:
Used the Feather stainless Platinium for the 6th time.
The Feather stainless Platinium felt a touch better than yesterday. The blade is the same, but apparently the razor makes the very noticeable difference here. In the Mulcuto Schrägschnitt (plastic), super light scraper is the Feather stainless Platinium significantly better use, than in the Gillette Tech. Smooth shave and immediate excellent result. Those light plastic scrapers still make a difference and that in a positive sense.
Result: BBS.
Finally: some Turkish and Polish in the finishing, Ilgaz Düzce Tütün (Tabac), Naturlife Krem Vazelin Argan Ve Aloevera Özlü and Wars Classic EnergetyZujaci and I'm satisfied again.

Brush and soap:
Plisson Fibre and Martin de Candre Vetiver:
A French soap and brush, Plisson Fibre and Martin de Candre Vetiver, to make a soothing shaving cream is fine. MDC's Vetiver is a pleasantly subdued scent, smelling nicely pure of vetiver. Grassy, slightly woody and some lime freshness, with the grass and some earthiness coming to the fore according to my nose.
Blade and razor:
Used the Feather stainless Platinium for the 7th time.
The Japanese Feather stainless Platinium is still doing well after 7x, so again tomorrow. In the Homelikeshaving TAIGA AISI 316L (satin) the Feather stainless Platinium feels like new, but just a little run-in. Very pleasant.
Result: BBS.
Finally: with Abzehk Olive edc and Abzehk Olive oil cream refreshed and cared for, after which the Loris E-003 Acqua Di Gio the vetiver extended a bit with a nice floral and fresh note.
All around smooth and satisfied.

Brush: J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm,
Soap: Lavanda,
Razor: Gillette 7'O Clock New Made in England,
Blade: Feather stainless Platinium 8th x,
Edc: PeReJa Lavender edc,
Aftershave balsam: Kneipp Lotion Lavender ,
Edp: Lavanda Ach Brito aftershave.

SOTD_20220517.jpg

Brush and soap:
J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm and Lavanda:
Delicious lavender this morning. Using the J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm, foamed up a nice dot of Lavanda cream. Lavanda I find gives a nicely scented and good shaving lather, such a yogurt-like lather with nice amount of moisture, that makes the blade run fine.
Blade and razor:
Used the Feather stainless Platinium for the 8th time.
Although the Feather stainless Platinium still seems usable after 8x, it has disappeared into the savings jar just because it can. 8x is enough. The Gillette 7'O Clock New Made in England with the Feather stainless Platinium is a good shaving combo. No super refined and comfortable shave, no, easy open comb shave. Effectively the beard away and the skull bald.
Result: BBS.
Finally: after treat with pure lavender of PeReJa Lavender edc, Kneipp Lotion Lavender and Lavanda Ach Brito aftershave as completion. It smells Mediterranean again.

Soap: TFS Crazy Sandalwood,
Razor: Ikon X3,
Blade: Triton R3 1st x,
Edc: Ilgaz Düzce Tütün (Tabac),
Aftershave balsam: TFS Crazy Sandalwood ASB,
Edp: Provence et Nature Santal Absolu.

Brush and soap:
Oumo Brush LE 095/102 / silk HMW gel tip 26 mm and TFS Crazy Sandalwood:
Am in the middle of cleaning up and packing for an upcoming removal. That cleaning up is sometimes necessary it seems, because of one of my most favorite soaps, the TFS Crazy Sandalwood, the bottom of the jar came very insight, however the day before yesterday I found in my shaving cupboard in the wrong bin a fresh jar. So that one will last for now. With Oumo Brush LE 095/102 / silk HMW gel tip 26 mm this morning an extra large lather whipped for a delicious sandalwood shave.
Blade and razor:
Used the Triton R3 for the 1st time.
The old East German Triton R3 is a good shave. Too bad these blades are no longer manufactured, because this is really good quality, which can easily take on the better Gillettes and a Kai for example. In the Ikon X3 it shaves fine with the Triton R3. Too bad, that the X3 is a bit soulless, shaves well, but without nice feedback. This time I had a titanium grip under it, which gives a slightly different balance, making the feeling better than with the standard stainless steel bobbin. So all in all still fine.
Result: BBS.
Finally: Plenzing with Ilgaz Düzce Tütün (Tabac), lubricating with TFS Crazy Sandalwood ASB and enhancing the scent with Provence et Nature Santal Absolu to finish. Was it yet another fine shave.

Osage rub, L'occitan cade balm

The la cigale soap lathers best with a synthetic brush. The osage rub gives a rather refreshing feeling.

@Harkos we are just like little squirrels. We are opening a long forgotten box and that adds at least a few more shaving years to our lives.
