Timeless / Voskhod pairing was as smooth as can be - literally close to zero blade feel.
I think I could use Tabac soap full time. It always delivers during and post shave
I'm liking the matching aftershave a lot too
Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice Brush:- WCS Two-Tone Tall (Blue & White) Extra Dense Synth. 26/56mm knot Soap/Cream:- Barrister & Mann ~ Nordost Razor/Blade:- Muhle R41 with iKon Bulldog / Astra Superior Platinum #1 Post/After-shave: T.N. Dickinson Witch Hazel Astringent mixed into the 240ml bottle with Natural Glycerin (20) & Tea Tree Antiseptic (10) Tipple:- Johnnie Walker Double Black
OMG! I LOVE my Muhle R41 attached to an iKon Bulldog handle which I haven't been using it for a very long time, almost a whole year (a real shame), the whole shave was truly magnificent giving my face feels a super smooth and a very close shave as a
without any nicks or cuts or irritation and razor burn.
The B&M Nordost doesn't smell smoky or smoked enough in the background, because, I get more orange smell throughout my whole shave which isn't very strong at all. A real shame for the B&M Nordost shaving soap with not enough smoky smell in the background to blend into the orange scent with my favourite scotch whisky throughout the shave is Johnnie Walker Double.
Johnnie Walker Double is a smoky whisky with a hint of orange, clove, caramel, spicy and vanilla, a good combination together with B&M Nordost and a very enjoyable and a magnificent shave with the Muhle R41.
As for the B&M Nordost needs to improved a bit further in the smoky orange background scent without the overpowering burning smell of charcoal wood-like similar to Stirling Texas on Fire which is pretty strong.
