Meißner Tremonia Woody Almond and the new iKon X3

with 2 comments

SOTD 2016-07-29

I really like the Mühle silvertip brush shown: the handle has good heft as well as a good appearance. It was easy to load with Meißner Tremonia’s wonderful Woody Almond shaving paste and, as always with MT soaps and shaving pastes, the lather was superb.

I got my new iKon X3 head, the previous one having been shipped to The Son as a birthday gift. It’s mounted here on a UFO handle. The shave was easy, smooth, and flawless: BBS in three passes with an Astra Keramik Platinum blade (and continued thanks to the kind reader who sent me that pack, that blade being extinct).

A good splash of Pinaud Classic Vanilla and the morning begins—with a trip to the dentist.

  2. So far as lather quality and fragrance goes, I rate them equally excellent. However, I think the soap will last longer than the paste.
