Prep - Noxzema / Hot towel
Pre shave - Proraso
Razor – Weber ARC
Blade – Timor
Brush - 'The Archduke' (Brad Sears Archduke 26/50 2-Band Manchurian)   
Soap – Shannon's Soaps Silk Pajamas
Post - Witch Hazel, Jojoba oil.

Well. I must admit that Shannon's soap didn't overwhelm me, maybe it could have been slicker, but I cannot deny the fact that my face is BBS, and irritation free, with a very pleasant post shave feel. It's a soap that delivers where it matters, and that's what really counts. Yep, this gets a thumbs up... 'it does exactly what it says on the tin', as the saying goes.... Smile

RazoRock Tuscan Oud today. 20 seconds to load the Elite Razor Silvertip. Easy, thick, slick, lather. I moved the Wilkinson Light Brigade to the Red Tip. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with RazoRock Tuscan Oud aftershave.

Van Yulay - Soap of the Gods "Black Cavendish"
BSB-Ti | HMW Extra Dense
RazoRock Black Mamba | Feather Hi-Stainless (1)
 
[Image: wiXhAZE.jpg]
 
Again, I won't bore you by restating my thoughts about Van Yulay's soaps.  I have lots of experience with a variety of their soaps, and I can confidently say they all perform in line with my other favorite artisans and can stand up to any of them.
 
I picked up "Black Cavendish" with trepidation.  I absolutely love a cherry tobacco fragrance.  In fact, one of my all-time favorite scents, "Captain's Pipe" by the artisan formerly known as "Beaver WoodWright", has to be placed on the back shelf due to the nausea it evokes upon my wife.  I have to reserve my use of said Captain's Pipe to hunting season during which she's gone for a few days at a time.  Captain's Pipe quite accurately reproduces the aromatic tobacco, Captain Black Cherry.  When I saw the scent notes for "Black Cavendish" on Van Yulay's site, I feared it would elicit the same response from my wife.  Fortunately, Black Cavendish varies enough such that she's fine with it.  I very much enjoy it.  There's a definite cherry tobacco fragrance up front, but there's enough woodiness to alter it quite a bit, and set itself apart as a different fragrance.  As the shave progresses, a slightly powdery, smoky, chocolate accord quite faintly moves in to really round out this delicious fragrance.
 
I used the paired alcohol-free splash, just to prolong the scent. I've said this before, but all of Van Yulay's splashes have a creamy scent initially that I assume is from the skin-care ingredients.  That creaminess is pleasant, but it does fade rather quickly and allows the matching scent to come through accurately.  As a nice surprise, I did notice some sweet vanilla notes in the splash that I hadn't picked up with the lather. 
 
Black Cavendish is a very nice release from Van Yulay that certainly fits in the family of cherry tobacco fragrances, but its depth and complexity keeps it from being a blatant reproduction.
