Van Yulay Bay of Roses with the Rockwell

The Omega silvertip badger brush shown is quite good, but it’s not one of my big, puffy Omega badgers. This one is more a normal steady silvertip brush, and it did a fine job with the Van Yulay sample of Bay of Roses. The soap has an interesting rose fragrance, not so in your face and somewhat more complex than many rose-fragranced soaps. The vendor describes it:

The allspice, cloves, nutmeg and crisp pine needles of bay rum with beautiful roses added to the mix.

The lather was effective as well as fragrant, and with the Rockwell I got a good shave, though I seemed to work a little more at it. When I checked following the shave, I saw that I had been using the R1 baseplate instead of the R3 I assumed. I changed it to R4 for the next shave in any case.

A good splash of Saint Charles Shave’s Dark Rose aftershave, another more complex rose-based fragranced, and the day begins.
