Gardenia and the Emperor

leave a comment »

I used the Honeybee Spa Gardenia shave stick this morning and the Simpsons Emperor 3 Super, which I’m finding quite pleasant again. The Apollo Mikron with its well used Wilkinson blade—a little too well used, I decided, and I swapped it out at the end of the shave for a new Treet Classic for next time. As I experiment, I went with a two-pass shave: across the grain and against the grain. It worked reasonably well, though of course it deprives me of one pass. Still, a smooth, pleasant, and nick-free shave, not quite so effortless as one would want. Paul Sebastian for the aftershave.
