Good morning friends.
As the book of Anne Geddes remains on the table, I thought about looking a picture to match my UFO Godzilla, chubby and soft, and I found that this fits well. The Calani Iberian Sun is great and the Coimbra Water, delicious.
Forza Alonso, Forza Ferrari!!!

Omega Wooden Handle
Super Speed/Rapira day 4
Arko Ice Mint SC
Gillette Series Intense Cooling AS Balsam
Osage Rub AS
Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui EDT

This was a fantastic and ultra-BBS shave today, and with so little effort. The Rapira blade on its 4th day knocked off my rough stubble so easily in just 2 passes. The Ice Mint is the only Arko cream with a significant menthol effect, and it smells great, and gives plenty of rich lather and good skincare. The Gillette Series balsam is frigid and very moisturizing, and the Osage Rub is in a class of its own. Sorry, no photos today!

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Tradere OC
Blade: Gillette Super Thin
Brush: Omega 31025 "Scarlatti" Boar
Soap or Cream: Mitchell’s Wool Fat Soap
A/S: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel, Taylor’s Mr. Taylor Splash

A very fine shave–the sixth one on the blade, but just as smooth and nice as shave #1 with this blade and razor combo. Of course, the MWF and the Omega boar brush deserve a lot of the credit, too, for working so well together. My face feels great and the Mr. Taylor provided a refreshing finish.

Pinaud Lime Sec EDC

The Pinaud Lime Sec EDC is an interesting scent. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet as it is entirely different compared to my usual scent preference. It will take some time to get comfortable with the heavy citrus notes. At any rate, it seems appropriate for a hot summer day. Cool
