Ylang-Ylang and the S3S

leave a comment »

Comfortable but not a close shave—I think the blade was too old, so it’s now been discarded.

Nonetheless, I’m certainly presentable, and I did enjoy the shave: just a bit more polishing at the end. The Simpson Emperor 3 Super worked up a terrific lather from Mama Bear Soaps Ylang Ylang, and the iKon S3S is a very comfortable shaver. As usual, I switched between the straight-bar side and the open-comb side during the shave, just as with a symmetrical razor, thus enjoying a little extra variety.

A splash of Floris No. 89, and I’m ready for a day of next steps.

I’ve received some good feedback on the first set of surprise boxes, so soon will offer 5 more. I want to do them in small lots so I don’t get overwhelmed.
