I got this bottle of Houbigant Yama "cologne" yesterday. I took a chance and purchased it on eBay because the seller accepted my low-ball offer for it. However, all the other Yama colognes listed there have orange and black caps, while this one has a white and black cap like the aftershave ("Men's Lotion") that I already had. I can't discern any difference in fragrance strength between the new bottle and the Lotion one, just sniffing them. So I guess I'll have to try it as both an aftershave and a post-shower cologne to see what it really is.

I've loved the styling of this razor for a long time.
After a cheeky comment on a thread, I'm now the proud owner of this Pal adjustable, thanks to the very generous Mike B aka @mpf9ret . He even included a pack of NOS Schick Super Stainless blades in the deal.

That is just so waiting to be shaved with.
It'll just have to wait till after the 1912 patent anniversary on the 27th January.

I picked up a few vintage Gillette Platinum Plus blades. It has been a long time since I have used any of them, and I thought I'd do an informal comparison of them to my Personna 74 Tungstens, Gillette Swedes, and Wilkinson Light Brigades, just out of curiosity.

The postman delivered a grooming set that looks a bit like this. WP_20190123_001.jpgWP_20190123_002.jpgWP_20190123_003.jpgWP_20190123_005.jpg

The soap stick seems to still have it's smell, a pleasant mild floral scent.

I'm not sure what the razor is though. I presume it's a Wardonia razor? It fits standard DE blades and it's difficult to see in the last picture but it has the writing 'Made in England' and '6' on the under side of the bottom plate.

I have the same razor & was advised it’s a Souplex Bakelite, I use it as my travel razor.
