Phoenix Bakelite slant with Lenthéric and Floïd

with 3 comments

SOTD 2016-09-03

My tub of Lenthéric is a treasure: it makes a wonderfully thick, slick lather and the fragrance is unusually good. The Wee Scot did its usual excellent job and held plenty of lather for the shave.

I’m getting the hang of the Phoenix Artisan slant, and I have confirmed: it is indeed bakelite. Today’s shave was very comfortable and my face felt perfectly smooth after the second pass, but I did a third pass anyway. The ATG pass did do some clean-up on chin and upper lip. Altogether a very fine shave indeed.

A good splash of Floïd (to show that a little menthol is okay with me—plus I love the fragrance), and the Saturday events can begin.

  1. Bakelite? Doesn’t hold a candle to ABS.
