Planet Java Hive and Progress

leave a comment »

A stylized photo that shows a shaving brush that has a white knot with gray tips and a white handle with a red base next to a tub of shaving soap whose label has a yellow background, the lower portion of which looks to be a honeycomb. In the foreground is the helmet of a purple spacesuit with "Planet Java Hive" in yellow just below the faceplate, which reflects a bee hovering above a sea of java under a turquoise sky. Next is a transparent rectangular glass bottle with a black cap and a label like the one on the soap. In fron is a gold DE razor, a Merkur Progress, the adjustment set at "3."

The Fine Classic brush immediately brought forth a great and fragrant lather — CK-6 FTW — from my tub of Planet Java Hive, whose coffee+honey fragrance I find very appealing. My Merkur Progress, set at #3″ as shown in the photo, easily wiped away all stubble, and a splash of Planet Java Hive aftershave/cologne finished the job. The shave was truly excellent and a great way to step onto the threshold of the weekend.

The caffeine this morning is another cup of my Assam-Ceylon-Keemun blend I made yesterday. Not bad at all, but of course, I was working with Murchie’s excellent teas.
