Perfect shave with Eros slant, Pehaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet

with 4 comments

SOTD 7 Oct 2013

Sorry about having the bottle backwards. You can see the label in this photo.

The lather was excellent. It’s been so long since I used this puck that it has dried out, but that seems to do no real harm. A little brushing with my Rooney Style 2 Finest produced a really fine lather. I have read in the forums that Penhaligon went through one of those profit-enhancing reformulations that ruined the soap, but that recently they have reformulated again, this time for performance, and the soap is better. My puck is old and the soap is fine.

Three passes with my Eros Slant, still with the original blade, and the result is BBS over all my face. A good splash of the aftershave, and I’m ready to take The Wife to the airport for her trip abroad. She promises to bring back a rare shaving soap from a shop in Paris.

  1. Last time I was in France I picked up a cheap (just a few Euros) shaving soap called Authentique that comes in a cream colored plastic bowl. Found in a large supermarket. It is nice, but I guess your wife hasn’t really gone to Paris to pick up shaving supplies 🙂

  2. She has a specific mission: to pick up two jars of asses’ milk shaving soap: see this post.

  3. The container looks different, but the description is the same. However, the shipping for two conatiners from Mondebio is over €30 (for a purchase of €11), so I didn’t buy. I’m hoping The Wife will be able to bring me a couple of containers from Paris.
