Avon vintage aftershave lotion and cologne. I bought mainly for the bottles and the boxes that are awesome looking.

Congrats! Nice selection! I think I would have done the same thing, if I had all these wonderful products widely available here. Thanks God I don't Smile

Today due to some more super-fast shipping I received a tub of BdF Esclusivo from Phil and my new custom brush from Bob at Elite Razor. M7-style in Black Pearl resin with a 24mm TGN Finest knot

Edit: Hah, the purple in the handle is actually a reflection from my fishtank that has a pulsating light.

Thank you Johnny! I've a bunch of them in SOTD pics and I had to have one for myself. This was a more economical route than getting a custom through Simpsons, and I've been wanting to try a TGN Finest knot lately as well.

That material looks really nice. I'm already back in touch with Bob trying to figure out another brush. His work is addictive! Biggrin

Thanks to a friend from another forum I received a "puck" of Green Mountain Soap as a surprise. The scent is Balsam Spice which the company describes thusly...

"Balsam Spice: This unique scent derived from pure essential oils evokes the spicy tang of fresh snow on fir trees. Top notes of Camphor, Fennel, Spruce and Spearmint are a pleasant mix of fresh mint and balsam. Middle notes of sweet spice come from Ylang-Ylang, Nutmeg and Clove, tempered by the fresh, woody, earthy scent of Siberian Fir. The earthy-mossy, leathery aroma of Oakmoss and the vanilla-like nuances of Peru Balsam ground this versatile addition to your rotation of shaving soaps."

I bought a soap puck of Anise from Stirling Soap, I agree to test and give feedback on the Coastal soap,and also a sample puck of Ben Franklin. Will post reviews on them after I use them a couple times.

They smell great. Super fast shipping too.

Not only are these Elite7's great to look at, but after making some test lather last night this has to be my most comfortable brush to hold. I'm going to enjoy using this one BiggrinBiggrin
