WSO May 2014 Thread

Ok So what I have decided is every month I will start a thread for the month where I will post updates. That way those who wish can simply check the thread for the month and see what going on here at WSO.

*The Store will be reopening tonight at 9pm EST. There are several new and exciting things happening. First of all the introduction of a new soap formulated specifically for straight razor shavers ( http://wetshaveobsession.blogspot.com/20...elthe.html ).

*The Pre-Shave Oils are fully stocked, both Regular and Mentholated.

*The aftershave Balm and Blash are both fully stocked in all scents.

*The soaps Bill the Barber, Zaro, Signature & White Lightning will be fully stocked.

*There are others that are in stock as well. The new scent Bevel mentioned above will be available in limited stock.

*Next to be stocked will be the new Vetiver, new Acqua Di Gio, then Vanillawood, then Coconut Lime & Lime. The summer months are here and I expect the Coconut Lime and Lime as well as the Mentholated White Lightning may be popular with their crisp, clean, cooling and refreshing scents.

*There are a several customers that I told I would notify when some of the scents mentioned above are available. Do not worry, everyone I have told will have their desired scent set aside and you will be contacted in the next day or two.

*I am working on the Pre-Shave soap and that may or may not be ready for release by the end of this month. My primary focus will be stocking soaps at this point.

*I want to thank all of my customers and supporters and also thank this entire board for the fantastic patronage and support. I sincerely appreciate it. I wish I could express my gratitude more but I just can't think of any better way to say it.

*Stay tuned. I expect the month of May to be a fun and exciting one here at WetShaveObsession. Join me in enjoying it!

Enjooy Your Shaves!
Regards,
Jim@WetShaveObsession

Hmm, very intrigued by Bevel... How does the formulation differ from your regular line?

Well obviously I can only go so far with my reply. I will say this, it was most important to look at the oils used and the specific fatty acid/triglyceride content and what those fatty acids/triglycerides translate to as far as the type of lather produced and adjust the oil amounts and ratios as necessary. Also the amounts or ratios of certain ingredients has been modified to produce a lather that may be more desirable for a straight razor shaver or even a DE or Injector or Cartridge shaver that perhaps wants a very slick lather with good cushion but that is not so thick as to clog between the blade and comb persey. There is some flexibility as to the consistency of the lather you can produce of course, but the natural tendency of this soap is to provide a thinner, yet still rich and slick lather.

I thank you very much for the kind words and for your patronage. Both are sincerely appreciated! Enjoy the Zaro. Hey I saw you refer to Grey Flannel in a post I believe (correct me if i am wrong). If you are a TomFord fan my new Vetiver scent that is coming out may be one you might enjoy. It is modeled after GF! Has that daily wear appeal to it much like GF in my opinion.
Thank You!

Ahh I thought I saw that! It is a classic Vetiver suitable for every situation from black tie to jeans and a t shirt IMO. That is why it was the scent i chose to mold mine after. Thanks Again for the order!
