Perfect BBS, with Vetiver

with 5 comments

SOTD 22 Oct 2013

Cyril R. Salter’s French Vetiver shaving cream is really excellent with a strong vetiver fragrance. After thinking, about it, I don’t think the vanilla+vetiver fragrance combination works for me, though I do like each separately. This vetiver is where it’s at. (Come to think of it, I believe I have a vetiver shaving soap from QED; I’ll have to look for that.)

With the Omega 20102 I got a very fine lather quickly—it is a shaving cream, and shaving creams lather easily—and then three passes with the Eros Slant, which I’m liking more and more. I had no trouble at all getting a perfect BBS result, and it was an enjoyable experience.

A good splash of Saint Charles Shave Very V aftershave, and the day is launched.

  1. I’m a big fan of Omega Boars. That looks like a nice one. When I want a quick, no fuss lather, I reach for a Boar Brush. I remember the days when only a Badger Brush would do for your morning shave, Michael. I took the journey with you into Boar and Horsehair Brushes, and I’m glad that I did!

  2. When I resumed wetshaving, horsehair brushes were unknown, and only badger brushes got any love. For me, it was Zach’s evangelism for boar brushes that opened my eyes. And Bruce Everiss wrote a good article on horsehair brushes that turned me on to those.

  3. Yes, it does. This post has some close-ups.

    UPDATE: Actually, the handle looks a little different. If you click to enlarge the photo above and the one at the link, you can inspect the handle more closely.

  4. There was something that made me think it was not exactly the same. I think I will pass.
