Crowne & Crane Thuringian Forest today. 20 seconds to load the Honey Farm Designs/TGN Premium Silvertip brush. Easy, thick, slick, lather. Vintage Gillette Platinum Plus still in the Gillette Slim. Excellent smooth, close, shave. I finished with Stirling Executive Man aftershave.

Baume.be~~Simpson 2 "Chubby"~~Dovo 91~~Myrsol Emulsion
Such a beautiful evening last night. Had all of the windows open, glorious.
*********UNTIL*********
5:30 am, I wake to the gut-wrenching; nose-hair burning stench of SKUNK!!!
The ENTIRE house (30 windows) reeks!!!
Move to close all windows, turn on the AC/fans/light candles, etc.
It's now 10:00 and finally the downstairs is clear. I can still get a faint whiff upstairs.
On the other hand, I had a terrific shave.  
The Baume.be is a magnificent product. A little pricey, but you get a huge jar and a little goes a long way.
Here's a lather shot:

Took the Dovo to the Shapton 16K before the shave, followed up on a CrOx Linen strop and finished
with 40 laps on my SRD 3" leather strop. 
Results were buttery-smooth. Very pleased with the shave. 
No nicks, cuts nor weepers. DFS+++ (I always have a couple of patches on my neck that I can't get smooth with a straight.
I can get them clean with a DE, but I am not pushing the envelope)
Alum was silent. Thayer's was "medicated" 
and finally, the Myrsol Emulsion left my face well-hydrated.
Finished with a dab or two of some Patchouli EO. 
Have a great day!

Want to give a shout out to @Wetshavingproducts on their generous and surprising mail call! Love the shirt and the scent of their new Vetiver is very nice! They describe the scent as follows.. "This is our fresh take on vetiver. It reminds me of freshly cut grass on a breezy summer day; of baseball games and boating on the lake. This version of vetiver is clean and refreshing, like fresh cut grass and a cool lemonade. Lemon, florals, sandalwood, patchouli, musk, and vetiver are blended to create this refreshing interpretation."


Scent off the puck is very fresh and perfect for spring and summer. If you're like me you don't care about seasons and use what you want year round so I see myself doing the same with this one. This one is their Rustic formula (Vegan). I lean more towards their Formula T with tallow but their Vegan is still very good! I loaded off the puck with no issues, building a thick, creamy lather. Cushion, slickness, & residual were very nice and provided a irritation free shave with no nicks or weapers.

I plan to obtain the matching splash but until then I find that Country Club for Men's Frozen Vetiver, which IIRC was an homage to Creed Vetiver, compliments it very nicely in the scent wheel house. If your in the market or a fresh, green Vetiver scent for your rotation this is definitely one to pick up!
