partially shaving related ... picked up a wooden box from Facebook marketplace. Instead of having my shaving gear in 2-3 different cabinets/wardrobe in my room, gonna organise the space in this box.
But first - will be restoring it a bit. Sand it down (some places are a bit too misaligned for my liking, plus wood darkening stuff someone used dripped a bit in places) darken the wood again - only on outside (got some wood oil or something as such for that), polish the hinges and realign them (top sticks out a bit more on one side than the other). Will be a fun small project - should take a few hours.

not bad for a £10 spent

Now that's a real treasure chest!

One problem, though ... it's not big enough! Or won't be soon enough.

It can double up as a coffin after your missus sees your next Baxters delivery

Everyone on here currently - "I've found a bag big enough to hold all my gear....."

A bit like the Oaken Labs "Earth of Mankind" (from #theemporium), but that one has a stronger cinammon smell
Went out tonight at 18:00 ; scent had almost gone so I had a wee top-up and it was great. Noticed and commented on by the drinking buddies but...........
strong drink was involved.

No adverse comments though!
Very pleased that a (cheap) aftershave splash can hold its scent so well. Bring on the Inferno!!!!
