Some Barrister and Mann love gifted to me by a friend.  They're all excellent which I always expect from B&M so no surprise there. Happy2

How's the Pencil Pusher scent?  Reading through the description on website had me very curious about that one


Jason and Dave, my friend got that particular one for me because I was an elementary school teacher for 35 years and, yes, a sharpened pencil does bring back school images to me.  As for the soap scent, I like it but it isn't exactly 100% accurate (at least to me) but I can see where the folks from Barrister and Mann were coming from on this one.  I finished off the Pencil Pushers shave with D.R. Harris Marlborough cologne which complemented the soap nicely without matching it exactly.

It was named Cosmic, which fits... But I can't help but think of a blue geode.  Regardless, I'm excitedly waiting for the knot to arrive. [Image: 72128ee1543f8cf373648021aad1df21.jpg][Image: ea22191423da275a82709aa06593e46b.jpg][Image: 20ee260838782ddbee248b577be713e0.jpg]

Another beautiful handle! I am going to check this shop out this weekend!
Thanks Eric! He seems to do more wooden handles than resin (guess the name Sawdust is appropriate). However, he has a small selection most times.

Fwiw, I have to stop posting pics of my acquisitions as soon as I get them. My mail comes later in the evening and the lighting is always abysmal.

Here's a daylight shot to show off the blue better. A whole lot of pronounced blue sparkles (that shocked me). I generally don't like the sparkly resin, but I kinda feel it works with this setup. As I believe I mentioned... It has a geode rock feel to it with this color scheme.

Happy Friday folks![Image: c33e86c4d83054140ba35448fb992522.jpg]

I just received  a custom made shave brush holder from NortonCustomDesign on Etsy.  He customized it for a 36mm opening and will accommodate other request as he has in the past.

RAD is just a permanently temporary condition.  I'll get over it.. eventually.

Spotted this Avon dog decanter at the Salvation Army Thrift Store. It's about 2/3 full. I have no idea how old it is, but it still had some scent. [edit - possibly as old as 1974] I put a drop on the back of my hand and walked around while it dried. I decided that the scent was okay, and ran it by SWMBO who thought it was acceptable, so I got it.

Definitely a "Dad scent".

Not to be confused with the "Deep Woods OFF" insect repellant.  Wink

[edit] One source gives the notes as "citrus, aldehydes, herbs, tonka bean, lavender, oakmoss, patchouli".
