Autumn Leaves

These are leaves from cherry blossom trees (which, although there was an abundance of blossoms, gave rise to no cherries that I’ve seen). It struck me as an autumnal image, and of course there’s a tune to go with it.

Krampert’s Acadian Spice Bay Rum, with a French shaving soap and the S1 slant

with 2 comments

Yesterday’s shaving cream was a gift The Wife brought back from Paris, and so is today’s shaving soap — a very nice shaving soap that responded well to the brush, my Rooney Style 3 Size 1.

It seems that this week I will be alternating slants and conventional razors, and the slant today is the excellent Above the Tie S1. Three pleasurable passes prepared my face for the splash of Krampert’s Bay Rum. I decided that I’d run through the bay rums I have. This one feels on the face somewhat like a witch-hazel-based aftershave, and it is surprisingly moisturizing for a splash. Let’s take a look at the ingredients — aha! “Witch Hazel, alcohols (isopropyl, ethyl and propoxylated), vegetable glycerine, natural scent and color from spices.” I didn’t know that, but witch hazel aftershaves have a distinct feel.

Very nice finish, and I offer my wishes for US readers to have a fine Thanksgiving.
