I do love a shave with Le Père Lucien soap and Cyprès Boisé certainly impressed! As per their usual formula, the soap is simple and clean. The scent, quite lovely and described as lemon, fresh, green & woody ... a kind of fougère, and it is.

I'm really enjoying running through my various cased 1912s at the moment and this one, a good example of a mid-1930s British Made gave a great shave. They all do, but there is something quite special about the razors made in that era and the ones made right at the end of the 1940s and into the 1950s.

Finishing off with a splash of Novaya Zarya Russian Forest was inspiring, the faintness of scent just left from the soap bolstered and grounded by the Cologne. Wonderful!
