    Default how does your shaving den look?

    If I have posted this in the wrong place I apologize and feel free to move it.

    I have his and hers sinks in my bathroom but I'm the only one that uses it because my wife has her own. Rather than drilling into the tile I have a large piece of granite floor tile across the second sink and thats where i keep my soaps, brushes, post shave balms and beard oils etc. It's getting a bit full now but I have been wondering how you guys with a serious collection store or display your soaps in a way that you can remember what you have and be able to easily get to them when you want to.

    Would love to see some pics of your shave dens and soap collections, if my wife sees how many soaps you have she might leave me alone when I buy more.

    We have his and her sinks, unfortunately we only have her counter, drawers, cabinets, and linen closet.

    If you're wondering I'm probably being sarcastic.

    Mighty poorly I'm afraid to say. Too crowded, but it works.

    I haven't got very much yet but my sickness is still quite new and it's a work in progress:

    Blackbeard
    Mahogany
    Cognac & Cuban Cigars
    Duc De Santal
    Haverford
    Sandalwood
    Pre De Provence
    Tobacco

    I have Agar (Giveaway prize) and Sharp Dressed Man on the way.

    Each soap has the matching post shave balm and beard oil as well as it's own wooden beard comb.

    I keep my den to a minimum. Aside from a bunch of razors that are put away in rolls in a drawer, I have a seven day rotation on display. I have a few brushes stored, but only use the same one daily. I'm down to 4 soaps and will probably be down to 2 by February, and only the one that I'm using every day out on the shelf. One aftershave and one balm. Several strops in storage, but just the same one I use every day hung in the bath.

    Don't think i've posted the 4" x 16" counter space that the wife so generously allowed.
    Obviously not enough room for straights which are kept in the den.Name:  20200108_135942.jpg

    I don’t have a “serious” collection, but this is “my side.”
