There is no rosemary scent, but it is cooling. But as I'm a commoner and not the @The King I'll finish the soap. I had a nice shave the lather was good.

3P La Crema Prodigio,
Plisson Fibre,
Martin de Candre Rose,
Rockwell Razors 6s,
Gillette Platinum 4th x,
Ilgaz Rose Isparta,
Naturlife Krem Vazelin Gül Ve Aloevera Özlü,
Rose Fernelle Provence et Nature Edt.


Brush and soap:
Plisson Fibre and Martin de Candre Rose:
As the skin seems a bit sensitive lately, first only a little 3P La Crema Prodigio lubricated. Then with the Plisson Fibre of the fresh box Martin de Candre Rose a fragrant and nice fat foam beaten. Delicious, nice on brushes and the smell is nice again.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette Platinum for the 4th x used. I am starting to like the Gillette Platinum more and more. Now used 4 times and it's best a good usable blade. Only a few turns of experience, but it's already coming in the direction of my favorite blades. If the quality remains constant, they are a nice addition to my assortment. The Rockwell Razors 6s first with plate 4 for the bald head and then 5 for the beard was a nice combination with the Gillette Platinum. I have to compare that once again, but the Gillette Rubie is just a little bit more pleasant I think, but that can also be suggestion. So let's fiddle on. Result BBS.
Finally: Ilgaz Rose Isparta, Naturlife Krem Vazelin Gül Ve Aloevera Özlü Rose and Fernelle Provence et Nature Edt for the completion and again a successful turn.

Sunday. Here in Frysland rain... and that's why I think I slept a hole in the day. 11:30, I came rolling out of bed... Exceptional because I normally wake up around 7:00. Showering and shaving... Something I haven't done in a while, by the looks of the beard growth... Today I woke up with a nice cooling shave, stirling Wintergreen was my turn again this time. Menthol soap with the smell of Bazoeka gum. (This jar is almost empty, luckily there is still some left.;)). A nice shave where the nose hairs and oorsprieten are not forgotten... I'm the gentleman again.

@The King probably I have a strong imagination and was still feeling the effects of the prep. I aggree it is a shame that the rosemary smell is absent

Proraso Crema Pre Barba,
Luyixian Synth-24x68,
BdF Raffinato,
Merkur 39C Slant Long Handle Barber Pole,
Gillette Platinum 5e x,
Rebul Dark Spice,
Weleda Aftershave Balsam,
Loris E-162 Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb.


Brush and soap:
Luyixian Synth-24x68 and BdF Raffinato:
After a little smearing with Proraso Crema Pre Barba with the Luyixian Synth-24x68 a rich foam made of the BdF Raffinato. This soap is pleasant to use, some hazelnut and almond like, not too sweet and great lather. No smell bomb, but nice and decent.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette Platinum for the 5th x used. The Gillette Platinum has passed my 5 norm well. Goes still further, let's see how far this blade goes. For now, the cut is still fine. In the Merkur 39C Slant Long Handle Barber Pole Gillette Platinum is good to feel, but in a pleasantly effective way, as should be with this slant. Nice smooth shaving. Result BBS.
Finally: some spiciness of the Rebul Dark Spice fits nicely with the soap. The Weleda Aftershave Balsam is a good caring product and the Loris E-162 Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb a nice firm spicy finish.
