BBS and fragrant face

SOTD 19 January 2013

The ominous black bottle is Creed’s Green Irish Tweed, as is the shaving soap. Once again I got a wondrous lather, today with the Simpson Persian Jar 2 Best. The fragrance of the lather is excellent, and the Weber DLC with a Gillette 7 O’Clock SharpEdge blade did its usual wonderful job. And, as in all things, practice makes one better: I got a much better nick this morning. It was actually a small cut on my lower lip: it had some width, but not much depth at all—it barely bled, but it did leak enough to be a better test of the Clubman Nick Relief, and that did a fine job. So there’s a good alternative to My Nik Is Sealed, though I still prefer the latter’s rollerball. But the nick efficiency of the two seems to be on a part.

The Creed Green Irish Tweed in the bottle uses a very fine spray—it’s not really a splash. I sprayed a few sprays on my hand, then rubbed hands together and rubbed my face. I enjoyed both the smoothness and the fragrance. Great shave to start the weekend.

And, as a bonus, note this wonderful thread at Wicked_Edge with its homage to Henry V.
