Oh, that Monday shave! I love the Eros.

with 3 comments

I think it’s a good thing to look forward with some eagerness to Monday mornings. My Copper Hat silvertip brush raised a great lather from Barrister & Mann’s Cologne Russe. I started with a well-shaken-out brush that was barely damp, and after starting to load added just a small driblet of water, which turned out to be just the right amount for a perfect loading: ample soap in the brush, with no large bubbles. I noted that the fragrance of this soap is more complex than that of most soaps I use, and much more in the direction of a fine EDT.

I lathered my face well, and then set to work with the Eros, a French slant of a certain age that I suspect is based on a Wahlbusch design (but that’s just a guess). Three easy passes with no damage left my face perfectly smooth.

A splash of Cologne Russe aftershave with a couple of squirts of Grooming Dept Hydrating Gel, and the week begins.

The tea this morning is Murchie’s Lavender Cream: “A beautifully balanced lavender black tea with creamy vanilla.”
