Another sandalwood, stronger — and the excellent RazoRock MJ-90A

with 2 comments

Despite Tcheon Fung Sing’s “forte” designation for its Linea Intensa “Crazy Sandalwood,” I found that fragrance much less intense than that of Art of Shaving’s (excellent) Sandalwood shaving soap. (BTW, TFS’s soap is made with almond oil (olio de mandorle), which I don’t see in many shaving soaps, though it certainly fits with the Italian love of almond-fragranced shaving soaps.)

The Kent Infinity, a very nice little brush, made a really excellent lather immediately from the AOS soap — it’s a good soap, and I would say that it contains no clay — and the highly comfortable and highly efficient RazoRock MJ-90A did a bang-up job. (“A” is for “aggressive”; I would name it the MJ-90E (for “efficient”), since it is not aggressive at all in feel.)

A splash of the interesting Ogallala Bay Rum & Sandalwood, and the day begins on a good note.

  1. Michael, do you still have and use your Weber DLC razor? It seems they only sell razor handles when you Google them. It’s still my favourite razor and I’m glad I bought a spare when they were available.

  2. I do not, and I wish I did. I got rid of it in one of the purges. It was a harbinger of the DE razor renascence, when demand had reached the point that it supported the design and manufacture of new razors, not simply recycling past razors.
