Today when I opened the curtains I suddenly noticed that the leaves around the stately mansion suddenly discolor very quickly and start to fall .. But even though I am more of a summer person, I can also really appreciate this period in the year. The soap used is a bit of an ode to this period.
Together with the used Koraat, it provided a mirror-smooth skull cap.
A qoute from a TV series is therefore in place .. "I like it when a plan works". Anyway i'm ready to cycle around Tjeukemeer. (with a stop here and there...im not mad..) ;)
Gentlemen have a great Sunday (now I assume that there are only gentlemen hanging out at this Forum.)

Wasn’t in the mood for triple milled soap today, so sort of a budgetshave.
With a few drops of glycerine the Proraso is just that little bit more caring for the skin.
The Grelot 355 6/8 is like a sheep in wolfsclothes. Everytime I expect quite some irritation regarding the feel and noise when I shave, but when I take out the alum there’s hardly any stinging.
Anyone uses this balm as well? The stuff costs next to nothing, has a good smell and absorbs quickly. Like it.

Last week I used Castle Forbes Lavender cream. The version of St. James has a totally different scent. The CF has a more earthy Lavender scent. The St. James is more bright. I can appreciate both. Have a good day!
