After the Rain, an Ascension to a perfect shave

with 2 comments

After the Rain is one of Declaration Grooming’s Milksteak soaps, and a fine soap it is. My Keyhole synthetic seemed to love it and loaded itself with a lovely lather. Three passes with Phoenix Artisan’s terrific Ascension double-open-comb razor left my face totally bereft of stubble, ready for Latha’s Post-Shave Splash. A fine way to start any Friday.

  1. Can I assume the After the Rain fragrance is similar to the clean and unique scent of “washed air” after a rainstorm?

  2. If you mean the fragrance called petrichor, then no, it doesn’t — not nearly like Summer Storm, by Chiseled Face. This fragrance is more woodsy and floral and in fact I don’t detect petrichor at all. I haven’t tried this Barrister & Mann soap, but I imagine it would have the fragrance.
