Barrister & Mann Reserve Spice, with a Wolfman handle holding an Edwin Jagger clone

with 2 comments

The fragrance of Barrister & Mann’s Reserve Spice has a note I cannot identify but like a lot — it lifts the fragrance above the ordinary. The lather itself was excellent, thanks to my use of a synthetic knot, in this case the very fine Edwin Jagger synthetic.

The shave itself was wonderful. I really like this Wolfman handle though it’s somewhat longer than I normally prefer, and the Mühle/Edwin Jagger head design is first rate — which, of course, is why it’s so often copied, in this instance by Charcoal (who nowadays don’t really make an entry-level razor like this, but only high-end razors).

A splash of Reserve Spice aftershave with a couple of squirts of Hydrating Gel and I am ready for the day.

The tea this morning is Murchie’s Lemon: “Featuring the flavour of fresh lemon on rich Ceylon, Darjeeling, Keemun, and Nepal black teas.” This is an exceptionally nice tea.

  1. Michael, if you like the cloned Old Spice so much (as I do), I think you may like the Stirling Spice EDT, which is excellent and is long-lasting, if you enjoy aromatics which last for 24 hours–and it is inexpensive.

  2. Good tip. Many thanks. I was a big fan of Old Spice back in the day.
