Phoenix & Beau seasonal soaps - Baskerville and Whitechapel.  Both are favorite soaps and scents.  I did like the 2017 Baskerville with Sherlock on the cover - the hound is more artistic and probably better match.  The Whitechapel label is certainly controversial with a goal (?) of depicting the horror of the Jack the Ripper murders (which  were committed in or near the impoverished Whitechapel district in the East End of London).  Buying P&B soaps comes with a history lesson on their web site.

[font=.SF UI Display][font=.SFUIDisplay-Semibold]I have been on a roll finding vintage Gillettes lately. A Toggle last week and now this. A 1948-1950 Aristocrat that seems to be NOS. The razor appears unused and the Speed-pak “dispenser” is still sealed and unwrapped. I think it is closer to 1950 because it has the lip built into the top lid to hold down the blade bank.[/font][/font]

A set of small M&F Blondes arrived.  I'm not really sure why I bought them, since I already had a full brush rotation.  And at this point I don't know if I will use them or not; initially I'll probably just admire them.

Today I received a small box from West Coast Shaving with just one soap I have been wanting to try since June this year.  I figured I'd wait until fall.  Oleo's Old Orchard Cider just smells so good off the puck.  I can't wait to try it tomorrow morning!

My favorite fall scented soap. I used up a half puck of her vegan formula last year, and am enjoying a new puck of her canard base this fall. You can't go wrong with apple, cinnamon, and honey.

Picked this up a while back but forgot to post. It is a vintage Creed (tallow) soap from the late '60s/early '70s - Epicea. The fragrance has been vaulted for some time.
Still in original cellophane wrap. Looking forward to giving it a whirl......

Vintage Gillette Sun Up aftershave.  It smells great, with a sort of barbershop tone.
