Some vintage Floris Rose Geranium eau de toilette is coming.  I'm going to use it to add fragrance to the lather of some old tallow shaving soaps that have lost their scents.  The toilet water is a consolation prize, since I've never found any of the mythical Floris Rose Geranium shaving soap.

A backup bottle of Cigar Aficionado aftershave.  It is my favorite of the green tobacco-toned aftershaves.

"But I saved money on it, honey..."

A set of Yardley shaving soap, talc, and aftershave, which I didn't need but on which I got a good price.  Same old story.

Couldn't resist any longer, bought a Karve Razor with D, E and F base plates. Also bought a jar of Talbot Buttery Brook shave soap.

Some Phoenix Accoutrements Chella Cool aftershave.  I had asked for ideas for almond aftershave, and this was recommended.  It is mentholated, which I wasn't really looking for, but I'll give it a try.

Well, despite my efforts to downsize my shaving stuff - and even though I also had just ordered the PA Chella Cool aftershave - once I gave in to curiosity and went to the Hemingway Accoutrements site and spun the wheel and got 15% off, and then remembering too how much I had enjoyed having a Hemingway Mont Blanc fountain pen in the past... I just had to order the box set of shaving cream, tonic, and balm.

A puck of vintage Mohawk shaving soap is coming.  It's another old tallow-based one that I've wanted to try.  And at $5, it's a cheap experiment.

I've been on a sort of tobacco scent roll lately.  I don't know what triggered it (perhaps use of Cigar Aficionado aftershave), but I began remembering when I first started college many decades ago, standing around at formal pre-dinner gatherings at my faculty advisor's house, everyone wearing ties or bowties and blazers with leather elbow patches, sipping sherry and smoking pipes and trying to sound erudite about literature.  A Southern California surfer trying to be Ivy League sophisticated.  So I've now ordered some Cavendish shaving soap, just from nostalgia.
