Rooney Butterscotch Emilion, Nuávia, Merkur Progress, Antica Barberia Colla aftershave
The Rooney Emilion is a very nice brush, and it made a fine lather with Nuávia Verde. I noticed today that I had to load a little longer than usual, adding water a couple of times. The Nuávia fragrance is light but pleasant, and the soap performs well.
The Merkur Progress is still a very fine razor: three passes, totally smooth, no problems. One of the Progress’s claims to fame is that it will not clog, though as a daily shaver I don’t find clogging is ever a problem. But if you have only once every week or two, the Progress (or the Parker copy, the Valiant) is worth considering.
A small dot of the aftershave milk from ABC, and I feel refreshed and ready for the day—not to mention the weekend.
This is for dinner: Oven-Roasted Chicken Shawarma . It’s been marinating since 6:00 this morning.
