BBS and DFS rollend in one, two rounds was all it needed, no touch-up. Now i need all other Fasan Models, i love this razor, smooth shaving, with bladefeel without being cut-throat.
The Stirling Arkadia is a lovely scented soap, it vaguely reminds me of the stuff my granny used to polish her expensive wooden furniture, quite a heady smell daumenh!. Its companion ASB is at first different, it reminds me of fresh baked bread, but the woody notes take over soon. The loris is to strong to leave any remnants of the Arkadia peek trough, a bit of a shame, i have to consider to get the Arkadia Splash & EdT.

Brush and soap:
Semogue SOC Badger Cherrywood and BdF Distinto:
There are some of these predictable factors that you know in advance how it will work out. The Semogue SOC Badger Cherrywood with BdF Distinto is one of them. Leave the brush to moisten in warm water and then load it firmly from the Distinto pot. This good beating in a ribbed bowl, in this case my Polish, provides a beautifully shearing and civilized scented foam. When my database spits out this soap as soap of the day, I feel like shaving in advance.
Blade and razor:
The Saddle Stainless Blades for the 5th x used.
The Saddle Stainless Blades performed quite well this 5th time. However, it did disappear into the piggy bank, because a good result required the necessary attention and I keep the last 3 in my collection box for museum blades, because these are irreplaceable. The RazoRock Game Changer 0.84-P takes every blade to a better level and with the Saddle Stainless Blades it was, but taking out the 6th turn is too much for this blade.
Result: DFS.
Finally: The Rebul Dark Spice gives a nice spicy final note, the Weleda Aftershave Balsam softens the skin and the Loris E-181 Noir Man takes the flavor from the Distinto again nicely up.

Yes, you always have to be careful not to come across as a show-off or exaggerator or snob or whatever you can be in someone else's eyes in some opinions. :blush
Especially if the shaving cream and Aftershave to be discussed means a considerable financial loss in the hobby wallet.

So may I say carefully that the new Acqua Di Parma without any reservation is by far my best shaving cream.

What a magnificent complex scent this cream has and also the lather doesn't drop a single stitch.
And if there is also a very slight cooling of pearling menthol crystals can be observed. Then many people probably understand why this Sunday shaving cream as the Utrecht “Dom” Tower is my ultimate number 1.

Rod Neep Silvertip extra dense LE 2014 #07/12 Shasoc,
Stirling Grapefruit extra Menthol,
Gillette New Made in England,
Sharp Durablade HI Chromium 1st x,
Pinaud-Clubman Citrus Musk Eau de Cologne,
Mennen Baume Energisant,
Loris E-048 Cool Water.


Brush and soap:
Rod Neep Silvertip extra dense LE 2014 #07/12 Shasoc and Stirling Grapefruit extra Menthol:
Fresh and fruity foam this morning. The Rod Neep Silvertip extra dense LE 2014 #07/12 Shasoc with the Stirling Grapefruit extra Menthol, a glacial, special extra with menthol provided at our request, is a particularly refreshing start to the day.
Blade and razor:
The Sharp Durablade HI Chromium for the 1st x used.
The Sharp Durablade HI Chromium for the 2nd time in use. I got a few test blades of this and the previous one went 6x with it and it felt well enough. So I am curious. Turn 1 was not wrong, more than sufficient. In the Gillette New Made in England the Sharp Durablade HI Chromium is not too effective for me. Something sensitive to the angle, but that can clearly be due to the razor, which runs best, when the head is almost flat on the skin.
Result: BBS.
Finally: The freshness is extended with Pinaud-Clubman Citrus Musk Eau de Cologne. Lubricate and massage with Mennen Baume Energisant and a nice scent of the Loris E-048 Cool Water.
Good start of the week.

Pre-Shave: Prep
Shaving Soap: WCS Pear-Brrrr Shoppe
After Shave: Williams Fresh Control

Shaving Brush: Shavemac 28 mm. Fan Silvertip 2 Badger

DE-Razor: ATT S1
DE- Blade: Treet Carbon Black Beauty

It's suddenly there that new shaving soap or cream that has a positive effect on your mood soap from the moment you open the jar until well after the shave.

The West Coast Shaving Pear-Brrrrrr Shoppe is a fine example of this.
A very different but so delicious barbershop smell in which clearly the fresh not too sweet smell of pears is noticeable.

Then there is also a very slight menthol cooling that makes the skin feel fresh during the shave.

Also the shaving properties are more than Excellent so a soap that comes high in the ranking. :yes_nicken

The ATT S1 with a Treet Carbon Black Beauty knife joined in cheerfully because this is a fantastic combination.

Nice to shave; a little late today ...
I had to bring my mother to the hospital early this morning unexpectedly.
But fortunately all is well!

The shave, again, was a little rough. This is not a good combination. Off course I should have known, since last week.
