    So today it is the conclusion of my PAA Trial. What a way to finish and I couldn't decide if I liked Cavendish better than Harvest Moon , but in the end gave it to Harvest Moon. I have to say every single soap performed extremely well and the thing that was extremely impressive is how consistent this soap is across the range. Many for me vary wildly.

    The League table is purely my take on the fragrance and of course YMMV.

    1. Harvest Moon
    2. Cavendish
    3. Astra Planeta
    4. Gondolier
    5. CAD
    6. Dapper Docs
    7. Solstice

    SOTD WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 16, 2020

    This morning was one of those revelatory shaves on day 5 of the TSD G7DC where everything just came together on this beautiful morning in the Philly burbs! I’m talking about my mug shave. It may have had something to do with the alignment of the stars. Or perhaps a serendipitous concentration of ingredients gathered at the very bottom of this tub of Nancy Boy shave cream coupled with a lessening of my usual tremors. This three pass (WTG, ATG, XTG) mug shave was divine. I make formal obeisance to the shave gods! The shave is without doubt the closest face shave I’ve ever experienced in my 7 decades of walking the planet! That includes every safety razor and straight razor shave to date. Here at TSD we say “technique trumps tools”. Those whiskers never stood a chance! I still keep feeling my face an hour or two after the shave. If there’s a level beyond VBBS that’s what I achieved with today’s face shave! It was so good, I decided to forego the dome shave! My face and neck feel amazingly smooth!

    RAZOR: Feather DX Wood Handle
    BLADE: Feather Proguard
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE Knurled Aluminum Handle Hybrid Knot
    CREAM: Nancy Boy Signature
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by Humphreys Lilac WH and Osage Rub. Finished with Pre de Provence Bergamot & Thyme Balm.
