Lenthéric and the iKon X3, with l’Occitane Cade EDT as aftershave

with 5 comments

Very  traditional this morning, I feel. The Rooney Victorian is a stately, elegant example of the badger brush in full glory, with a wonderful knot. The Lenthéric’s shaving soap, though made decades ago, still emanates a wonderful fragrance from the great lather it produces.

Prep complete. I put the iKon X3 to work. Here it’s mounted on the superb RazoRock Barber Pole handle, a handle that I like a lot. In fact, when they’re back in stock, I may buy another.

Three passes left my face completely, wonderfully smooth, and again I used an EDT as an aftershave, this time l’Occitane’s Cade. It has a spray top, so I do several sprays into the palm of my hand to get a “splash,” as it were, then rub hands together and then on face. It works well enough. Were it packaged as an aftershave, it would probably include some glycerin, but even just as an EDT it does the job as an occasional variation. Because of the lack of skin-nourishing/ehancing ingredients (like glycerin, for example), I probably would not use an EDT as my daily aftershave, but using it from time to time seems okay.

  1. Michael,

    Why do I see an Old Spice bottle of after shave?

    I feel I’m missing something. But what?

  3. Looks okay to me…

    🙂 Thanks. I find the new computer is sluggish, and when I move directly to upload the new photo I’ve just edited, it sometimes is not yet shown on the desktop. I should have gotten 16GB RAM (instead of 8GB) after all. Live and learn. That will be corrected in four years, when I plan to get a new computer.

    Again, thanks.

  4. Michael, get someone to upgrade the RAM, should be an easy and relatively cheap job. Better than 4 years of frustration.

  5. With the new Apple M1 SOC (system on a chip), memory upgrades are not possible. You get the integrated system with the memory you ordered, and that’s it.
