Mostly French shave—Creed GIT, Plisson—and the Maggard V3A

The other day The Wife commented that she really liked the fragrance I was wearing—Creed’s Green Irish Tweed, as it happened—and I am as alert as the next guy to things that please the Significant Other. So I expect you might be seeing Creed a little more often.

Certainly it will be no hardship for me. The Creed GIT shaving soap is top-notch, and with the Plisson synthetic shown I easily created a wonderful lather with the Green Irish Tweed fragrance.

Top Notes: French verbena, Florentine iris
Middle Notes: Violet leaves [I have no idea what violet leaves smell like – LG]
Base Notes: Sandalwood from Mysore, ambergris

That’s from Creed’s description, but they fail to list soap ingredients. I note the price is now $125 for a tub of soap, which IMO is way too much. (I purchased my tub of soap a few years back, directly from Creed, and it was just under half that price: $62.) I doubt that I’ll replace this in the event that I use it up.

The V3A is quite a good razor. It has a fair amount of blade feel, but it is very efficient and not uncomfortable. I would particularly recommend that men with a heavy beard give it a try. The head alone is $10, as you see at the link. I quite easily got a BBS result with no problems at all.

A splash of Creed’s GIT EDT as an aftershave, and the day is looking good.
