Similar Speick Shave

leave a comment »

I was asked how the fragrance of Speick shaving soap (used yesterday) compared to Speick shaving cream, so that directed today’s choices. I went with the Simpson Emperor again, but the 2 instead of the 3, and once more enjoyed a fine lather and the comfortable handle of the Emperor brush.

Speick shaving cream’s fragrance is much more noticeable than the soap’s, whose fragrance is quite muted. The shaving cream has a good, strong, fresh fragrance and makes quite a wonderful lather. Good as the Speick soap is among soaps, I would say that Speick’s shaving cream stands relatively higher among shaving creams.

The iKon OSS with a Gillette 7 O’Clock SharpEdge blade did its usual fine and comfortable job: three passes to perfection. A splash then of Specik aftershave and I’m ready and raring to go.
