Brush and soap:
J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm and BdF Esclusivo:
Whipped up a nice Italian lather this morning with the J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm from the BdF Esclusivo. Fat lumpy fine stuff with a decent yet somewhat citrusy scent. The brush I have to keep an eye on for a while, because after some use I notice, that inside the bristles bend and entwine, about the same as happens with horsehair brushes. This eventually gives you an open hole in the middle of the knot. With a toothpick or so, this can be untangled, but shouldn't get much worse.
Blade and razor:
Used the Wilkinson Sword for the 1st x.
Used a fresh Wilkinson Sword. That's a blade from the Turkish toko and not the Gillette Wilkinson Sword. Shaves fine and should be good for about 7 shaves.At least in the past because May 2018 was the last time I used it. The combo Apollo OC with this Wilkinson Sword is good but basic. Just good smooth shave with some rawness.However that razor doesn't hide anything and that blade needs to run in I guess. In any case, good smooth!
Result: BBS.
Finally: Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Kolonya Klasik Limon, Naturlife Krem Vazelin Argan Ve Aloevera Özlü and Loris E-220 Dior Sauvage Very Cool. This does scent again for a while and I'm tightly smooth.

Shaved after a bike ride. The weather is really crappy here. I even had to ride through a hailstorm. I was so glad that I had a rain jacket with me. Otherwise I would have to ride 50 km soaked to the bone. Then it can be become really cold.

Never shaved with a gillette slim before. It was sitting in my drawer for at least a year and a half. The mechanism was jammed when I tried it yesterday. So the ultrasoon cleaner and wd-40 had to come to the rescue.

I'll have to try the sonnal with another blade. The tatra doesn't feel smooth, but is skin friendly. The combo feels rather rough.

Brush and soap:
Plisson Fibre and TOBS (Taylor of Old Bond Street) Jermyn Street Sensitive:
Took the Plisson Fibre for the TOBS (Taylor of Old Bond Street) Jermyn Street Sensitive, as it goes well together. Slack synthete with soft cream. That jar does not want to empty. Bottom is fortunately in sight, because this is not super stuff for me.
Blade and razor:
Used the Wilkinson Sword for the 4th time.
The Wilkinson Sword goes through nicely. Average, but adequate cut. Ikon X3 with Wilkinson Sword is a somewhat unfeeling combo, but shaves in the end.
Result: BBS.
Finally: after the citrus in the Jermynstreet some Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Kolonya Klasik Limon, Arko Nem Avokado ASB and Loris E-085 Dior Fahrenheit. Pleasant scent for the day. One more shave at home tomorrow and then on the road with the caravan for about 5 weeks.
