Another Solstice: Barrister & Mann with the Rockwell R4
Another fine shave with another good soap bearing the name “Solstice,” this one from Barrister & Mann. This one has quite a different fragrance, described by one user as “lemon, black pepper, and real damask rose absolute with just a touch of cooling peppermint.” This is one of the soaps that B&M make from time to time; currently, it’s not on their web site, but I imagine it will return, perhaps for the summer solstice.
The lather was excellent, and the Rockwell razor with the R4 baseplate did a very fine job: comfortable and efficient, with no problems at all.
A splash of Barrister & Mann Reserve Classic, and the day is launched.
