Let me start by firstly thanking Rob (@Blackmass) for his kind gifts which appeared out the blue on Wednesday. I came home in the very early hours Thursday morning after a 22 hours shift and the pleasant surprise was waiting for me. It totally cheered me up when I got in. Thanks very much mate!
Onto this evenings shave....
With the Hedonisme soap and aftershave now in my den I was eager to try them out. The aftershave has a great scent in the bottle with the soap considerably lighter.
I followed my usual prep and placed a slightly wet brush in the soap. A few rotations and the scent was noticeably stronger. Definitely similar to Dior Sauvage EdT but nowhere near as strong or overpowering.
I don’t know if it was just my imagination but the brush seemed softer as I was lathering up. Really smooth with a nice rich lather. The blade cut through my stubble with ease with a noticeable glide.
All 3 passes were over in an instant with my skin feeling slick between each pass. There was no need for pickups with my face and neck BBS.
A cold rinse and splash with Thayers had me smiling from ear to ear as I knew it was a good shave. A small splash of the Hedonisme aftershave with absolutely no burn at all - brilliant!
A good 10 minutes after finishing my skin feels silky smooth and the scent from the aftershave has died down slightly. It was suggested that hints of Oud would appear and I couldn’t agree more. This is a scent I totally enjoy!
A great shave this evening with some new software that will have a solid place in my den. Thanks Rob!
Have a great evening folks!
