A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

Mühle synthetic, Martin de Candre, Dorco PL-602, and Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte

Martin de Candre, for all the simplicity of its ingredients, is a truly excellent soap, at least in my experience, easily loaded and making a great lather. This is one of the early Mühle synthetics—an effort to replicate a badger knot—and it does a fine job. It has a somewhat different feel than the Plissoft synthetics, but still matches them for overall excellence in feel and performance.

The Dorco PL-602 continues to hold its own as one of my best razors: comfortable and efficient, easily producing a BBS result as it did today. This really is a razor you should try. A quick search of eBay finds this listing: two razors, $6.85, free shipping. Since this razor is exceptionally comfortable and efficient, it makes an ideal razor for a novice, so buy the two pack and give one razor to a friend who must shave but currently hates the task. Great stocking stuffer.

Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte Moisturizing Skin Emulsion makes a wonderful aftershave balm. Highly recommended for your own use or as a gift.

Altogether, a great way to start the weekend.
