Oh boy. My rose essential oils and hydrosol arrived. I'm going to divide the hydrosol into smaller bottles and add a drop of a different oil to each hydrosol bottle. Then I can try adding a couple drops of a mixture to my shaving lathers - sandalwood, fougeres, tobaccos, colonias, etc. to jazz them up a bit. This is going to be fun.

NOS Trumper tallow in coconut oil.  The scent is very nice, and more complex than just coconut .

A vintage butterscotch Rooney boar brush, which appears to be NOS. I have not used a real boar brush before, and I'm looking forward to trying it.

I received 3 mail calls over the past week and a half and just haven't had the time to post.  A package came in from PAA to stock up on some deodorants, a new alum block (I dropped my current one) and holder, the Prismatic razor - something I always wanted to try, and completed the collection of the PAA retro acrylic brushes.  I believe these are one of the best values in the business with cool colors and styling, excellent synthetic knots, and reasonable pricing.  I can't forget the Clown Fruit Cube.  Love Clown Fruit and could not resist.  I just wish it was mentholated.  


I also received a small package from the Razor Company.  I did not know about these guys, but they are local in Michigan and provide free shipping for orders over $10.  I recommend trying them.  I have been intrigued by Leviathan for some time, but put off purchasing last year because I just disliked the label artwork so much and hoped B&M would redesign again this year.  I really dig this latest artwork.  I just wish B&M made a normal AS this year instead of the balm.  I was not going to buy the EDT until at least I knew I liked the scent.

Today I received the Classic Monster tribute from Dr. Jons. Shave Till The Grave.  Not quite as elaborate as the Holy Black offerings, but still very cool.  I just hate the crappy metal tins, but if you want Dr. Jons, there is no choice.  The artwork is great and makes up for the use of metal.  From a quick whiff of each soap, the scents smell great.  It is hard to tell until they get lathered up, but the set should be fun and enjoyable.  I just wish it was one scent at a time per year.  3 seasonal soaps all at once is a lot of soap.  They wrapped the package in a thick red paper and it all looked nice.  I am really excited about this one. The shirt that came with the package will be delivered separately. 

It looks like plenty of awesome shaves ahead!

Yeah, actually I used the Chill Mill last week with the Clown Fruit set up.  I like both the Mentholated Cube and the Chill Mill.  Over all, I think I like mixing the extra lather from the chilled cube leftover from my initial face lathering, just blending it with my soap lather.  It provides just a nice cooling effect and is easier to control then the ground crystals.  Both work well.  
Steve
