A RazoRock ReDiscovered

I was perusing my hoard of soaps and creams and discovered...

RazoRock MCMXXIV Italian Master Barber Limited Edition Artisan Shave Soap

The soap is packaged in a special gift box.
The box base is lined with cushioning foam.
The soap is wrapped in plastic and then black paper.
The soaps were individually numbered from 1 to 100 and I have 78 / 100.
Scent is Classic Italian Almond.

This is great soap. It was released a couple of years ago around Thanksgiving. It's like finding $100 under your sofa cushions. Wish I still had mine.

MCMXXIV = 1924. That's Boellis. The packaging is even similar. Maybe that's old news, but I wasn't around the shaving boards when this stuff was released.

* That is what I was thinking, also, but it actually doesn't look as large as I had thought and can see it disappearing in the drawers! Biggrin

Ben, that's a great find. I know you'll enjoy it.

I have three RazoRock soaps (XXX, Don Marco, and Caprician Lemon), the Shave Gel (whch I use as a pre-shave), Don Marco Aftershave Balm, and the Aftershave Wax and virtually every one of them is a superb product. I had a XXX shave this morning. Biggrin
