My Sunday morning shave this morning was my best shave ever!
DFS!!
prep: a hot shower, bloom water
it was also my first super lather combining Lisa's Natural Herbal Creations somali rose with TOBS Rose shaving cream.
the dark rose scent of the LNHC blended wonderfully with the much brighter TOBS scent. worked the lather in a bowl.
brush is an unbranded silver tip badger.
razor is an L4 (1966) gillette tech head (NOS travel razor) matched with a maggard MR3 SS handle (98 grams). perfect balance just north of center, YMMV
post shave in order of appearance: alum, Thayers Lavender witch hazel, Prep Dopobarba
oh yes and a big smile
Smile
if I ever figure out how to post some pics.... Huh

I think some varieties of rose smell like geranium, I'm not a fan of those types of rose scents.

I'm glad you liked it!  It's nice that a mundane task can bring some happiness.
