Doppelgänger and Gillette Heritage

leave a comment »

Doppelgänger was, I believe, the first soap Phoenix Artisan made in the CK-6 formula, and I recall my being amazed by the quality of the lather. This is Doppelgänger Orange, an homage to (or knockoff of, depending on your view) Ralph Lauren’s Chaps:

Top notes: Anise, Clary Sage, Bergamot, Lavender, Lime, Lemon
Heart notes: Jasmine, Patchouli, Orris, Geranium, Sandalwood, Cedarwood
Base notes: Amber, Vanilla, Musk, Honey, Moss, Benzoin, Tonka Bean

The fragrance is delightful, and the lather all that you would expect from an ultrapremium soap.

Three passes with the Gillette Heritage did a good job, though at one point I noticed the head was loose. I’ll have to check head tightness before using this razor, since I didn’t loosen it, so it must not hold itself in place all that well.

A splash of Doppelgänger aftershave with a squirt of Hydrating Gel, and I’m ready for a walk.
