The second most divisive smell in the wet shaving world after Tabac. BS Maca Root - I love it! Awesome lather when combined with the Zenith brush. I do enjoy using boar brushes for my creams.

Really nice scent this soap. Love the scent. Today's lather is good...not great.
Blade alignment with razor was spot-on today. The key is the top-cap.
Shave with razor and blade pairing felt smooth and sharpish. So smooth today and was surprised by a few weepers on the neck after an atg pass. Otherwise a very smooth 3 multiple pass shave with between a BBS and DFS results.
Rating today 8/10

The star of the show today was @BrianH Eboracum, although i do enjoy a minty shave the Eboracum takes it that step further with the addition of Cedarwood and that makes it for me as i feel it reduces the "sweetness" of the scent. So much so i have made my own take on it with an Argan Oil lotion.
I had copious amounts of wonderful lather to protect my chin during the shave, a little goes far and the resulting lather is very very good.
3 passes for a BBS finish today.
A nice post shave leaving me feeling very refreshed.
Stay Safe and Enjoy your day All
