I would like to say a big thanks to MikekiM for a smooth flawless trade, a truly great bloke to deal with.

Creed Tabarome Millesime 120ml, and a Hart razor quarter hollow 6/8 with rosewood scales, the razor is very utilitarian but if I'm honest that's me all over pure form and function over fancy Dan any day, beautifully finished would put most vintage blades to shame, I would say this could very well be the Volkswagen Golf GTI of razors.

Stunning handle and brush, Ben 2vikoroNumber_one2vikoro
If not for you, I would have bought my first and last 3-Band Silvertip brush in faux ivory striped Chubby 3, but Mark told me the last handle was just being shipped - and that he only had that particular handle left in a Chubby 2. So I ordered that, and quite glad I did, because even in an extreme bulb it would bloom a bit too much in the huge Chubby 3 version, still will bloom quite a bit in the Chubby 2 version, but more controllable and more enjoyable in the smaller knot, I think.

But what a beauty (I repeat myself here, I really like the look of a Chubby 3 brush. A bit on the large size for my XL hands, yet still a fantastic handle to hold.

Creed Tabarome Millesime is an overlooked Creed, and one I enjoy and am glad to have in my collection. I got the 120 ml version for just €125 from Cheapsmells, and it is as legit as any Creed I own - the juice inside is wonderfull natural smelling, and last 8-10 hours on my skin. I get a very nice natural ginger blast from it at first, then the tobacco slowly evolves and come to the forefront. A classic fragrance, which I often blend with either Tom Ford Grey Vetiver or Guerlain Vetiver.

Yes Ravi, somewhat of a revival of a bygone status symbol and a new golden age for the shaving brush, to be sure!
