A BBS shave of great enjoyment. I do like rose as a shaving fragrance, and the Rose Otto shaving soap from Queen Charlotte Soaps is quite wonderful. With the Ecotools Kabuki, I got a wonderful lather after the usual slightly longer loading period—just 5-10 seconds longer, but my brush usually is fully loaded in 10-15 seconds so the extra time is noticeable: sort of an extra beat in the process.
Fragrant, thick, and wonderful, that lather worked like a charm for three passes of the Edwin Jagger Lined Chrome razor holding a newish Gillette 7 O’Clock SharpEdge blade. I was almost BBS after the second pass, so the third was mostly polishing.
A good splash of Savory Rose from Saint Charles Shave to finish the job, and I’m set for the weekend.
Bonus points to those who guess the shaving soap I will use on Monday, and more if you can guess the aftershave. You know my methods; apply them.
