Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet
This morning I took the G.B. Kent BK4 in hand and made a fabulous—9.5—lather from Penhaligon’s excellent Blenheim Bouquet shaving soap. I put a new Feather blade in the English open-comb Aristocrat and shaved enjoyably, finishing with Blenheim Bouquet aftershave. Entire shave: about 9.2.
It occurred to me that the English language lacks sufficient words for shaving, just as (it is said) it does for “snow”. Thus we resort to numbers.
