One day whiskey, the next day beer: such is the Spyce of life

with 2 comments

Meißner Tremonia’s Black Beer No. 1 has a very present but hard to define fragrance — perhaps it’s the beer combined with rosemary and lemongrass. Beer is indeed an ingredient:

Stearic Acid, Cocos nucifera oil*, Beer, Potassium Hydroxide, Orbignya Oleifera oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Macadamia terifolia oil, Glycerin*, Rosmarinus officinalis leaf oil, Cymbopogon flesuosus oil, Red clay, Talc, Citric Acid, Simmondsia chinensis oil*, Maris sal, Citral**, Geraniol**, Limonene**, Linalool**, Citronellol**.

* Bio – Qualität
** from natural essential oils

MT soaps all contain clay, and they all produce fine lather, but the formula varies from soap to soap. My WSP Monarch did a great job because it is a truly excellent brush (and using a good soap helps, of course 🙂 ). 

Fine’s Marvel razor head (no relation to the Marvel movies, so far as I know), here mounted on a UFO bronze handle, did a terrific job today, and a splash of Royall Spyce (augmented with a couple of squirts of Grooming Dept Hydrating Gel) finished the shave well.

The tea this morning is Murchie’s CBC Radio Blend: “A blend of choice Ceylon and China black teas, Jasmine and other green teas with a touch of citrus.”
