Van Yulay’s After Dark with the Standard and Creed’s Green Irish Tweed
I do like the shape of the handle of that brush, and the knot is wonderful (for me). Van Yulay’s After Dark has an arresting fragrance (for me): it goes beyond “pleasant” and really got my attention in an attractive way. Her description:
Cinnamon, leather, cypress, sandalwood, tonka bean, amber, patchouli, lavender, mandarin orange, musk, benzoin, vanilla, apple, cedar and bergamot.
She notes “Compared to Carlos Santana Fragrance,” a fragrance I’ve not tried, but certainly I’m now interested.
The lather was as good as the fragrance. The soap is one of the vegan ones:
Stearic Acid, Aloe Vera, Coconut Fatty Acid, Castor, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Coconut-Emu-Babassu-Olive-Argan-Jojoba-Oils, Calendula, Extracts, Poly Quats, Sodium Lactate, Allantoin, Silica, Liquid Silk, Bentonite Clay, Essential Oil, and EO’s and Fragrance.
Three passes using the Standard head on the Wolfman handle, and then a good splash of Creed’s Green Irish Tweed. The weekend begins! (The Wife is taking today off, so we have a longer weekend.)
