Mr Pomp, Phoenix Solstice, and the X3

I do like the fragrance (and lather) of Phoenix Artisan’s Solstice shaving soap, so I finally bought the matching aftershave. Today Mr Pomp made the usual excellent lather from Solstice, and I again noticed that lathering this soap works best if the brush is well shaken out and merely damp.

The Astra Keramik Platinum blade, which didn’t work at all in the Gillette 1940’s Aristocrat, went into the X3 for this morning’s shave, and it worked fine: three passes, moderate blade feel, very comfortable, no nicks, perfectly smooth result. It’s always good to start the week with a great shave.

A splash of Solstice aftershave, and I’m ready for the day, which begins with an eye appointment.
