A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

Geo. F. Trumper Rose this morning

with one comment

Couldn’t resist the Rose, which I applied with a Simpson X2L Best Badger—a brush I’ve not read about, but looks a little like a small Simpson Polo. Very good—and fragrant—lather, which I attacked with a Gem G-Bar carrying a Ted Pella blade of one shave. Three passes, with a very smooth face resulting—not so smooth as yesterday, with the Slant Bar + Swedish Gillette, but still quite good: 9/10 instead of 10/10.

Naturally, after the alum bar I used Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel. Only traces of fragrance left—it doesn’t last, with Thayers—but withal a pleasant way to start the day. A day, BTW, that will see my implant implanted by the oral surgeon.
