Impression

Hello, old friend ...

The Muhle played wonderfully on a couple of days' growth. The Feather, alas, worked but this shave proved to be its last. Seven runs is good going for a DE blade, let alone a Feather.

I finished with a custom home made blend of gin, witch hazel, essential oils and two fern scented EDT samples (10ml in 200ml). Lovely floral scent, cooling and good evaporation, leaving a green ferny, mossy scent which will develop overnight and no doubt be with me through tomorrow. I might top up in the morning with something complimentary.
