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

Rooney butterscotch Emilion, Lenthéric shaving soap, Baili BR171, and Peary & Henson aftershave

The Rooney did its job efficiently, and again I was greatly taken by the fragrance of the vintage Lenthéric shaving soap. The Baili 171 continues to be great; the fact that it cost $6 is a bonus pleasure. A splash of Peary & Henson from Prospector Co. finished the job:

This aftershave splash takes its roots from old maritime travels. The arctic blue color and the chilling smell of bay leaf and coriander brings to mind the voyage of Robert E. Peary and Matthew Henson who were the first explorers to reach the North Pole. Peary and Henson were the most determined and steadfast explorers having made several record-breaking attempts. In April of 1909, along with 4 Eskimos, reached the highest [northernmost – LG] point on earth.

Witch hazel, cedar water and aloe bring the bay to life and fresh coriander [? – don’t see it in the ingredients – LG] adds a sharp bite. The smells and properties of this aftershave will invigorate, refresh and tighten your skin and prepare you for another day of endless nautical miles.

Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Distillate, Organic Aloe (Barbadensis), Distilled Water, PolySorbate 20, Vegetable Glycerin, Pimenta Racemosa (Bay), Commiphora Myrrha (Myrrh), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary), Eucalyptus Globules (Eucalyptus), Pinus sylvestris (Pine), Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavendar), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree), Phenoxyethanol.
