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

A Vie-Long brush, Cooper & French Old Goat, the iKon 102, and Pashana

leave a comment » was a shave forum that has in recent years become inactive. Some years back they offered a horsehair shaving brush, and I got one. It does a good job, but my favorite horsehair brush seems better: a slightly denser knot.

Cooper & French’s Old Goat shaving soap seems appropriate at the this stage of my life, and it makes a fine lather. I like the fragrance, perhaps because when I began shaving in high school I used Old Spice shaving soap, and Cooper & French note:

The scent is an homage to the original 1930’s Shulton Old Spice fragrance! A classic that remains a popular favorite among men who are searching for a timeless scent that embodies notes of citrus with a subdued hint of warm vanilla.

The ingredients:

Goat Milk, Water, Potassium Stearate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Sodium Stearate, Potassium Tallowate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Tallowate, Glycerin, Fragrance, Sodium Lactate

The iKon 102 is an ideal razor for Monday’s two-stubble (and Tuesday’s one-day stubble, for that matter). Three easy passes left a perfectly smooth result with no problems.

A small splash of Pashana finished the job and the week already is off to a good start. I’m making Sam Sifton’s Picadillo for dinner. (The olives to use are the small salad olives, not the queen-sized Martini olives.)
