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

It’s been said that a taste for simplicity cannot endure. (Eugène Delacroix said it, in fact.) And, of course, similarly one eventually tires of ornament and decoration, so we spend our lives oscillating in our tastes.

I was thinking of that this morning as I contemplated my shave. Having settle for a time on the Merkur Slant and Iridium Super blade, that decision is made, and I note that it’s somewhat of a relief not to think about it. If I were to stick with the Rooney Style 2, that would also probably be a relief, so I’ll try that for a while. Eventually, of course, I will tire of the regimen and long once more for variety.

So far as soaps and shaving creams, I do like to change those more frequently. This morning it was QED Sandalwood shaving soap, one of this best: great fragrance. Fine shave, and then TOBS Sandalwood aftershave to finish. What a great start!

I’m back to the 3-pass shave. The two-pass is interesting, but I do like the ease of three passes, with the more gradual stubble reduction.
