Hello everyone! First time forum member, but old time shaver. I first started shaving wayyy back when I was 16, and only stopped for 2 years, a few years ago, back when beards made a comeback. I have been back for a number of years, and it’s been a pleasure! So many options nowadays, it’s such a joy to shave. When I started, I loved GFT Sandalwood cream, followed by Clubman Vanilla aftershave. Oh how things have changed! It’s an incredible and pretty dang exciting time for the shaving world! I love it! I was always fascinated with this old world shaving, from working up the lather to using straight razors, the classic aftershaves that bring back those days of my pops, aqua velva, tabac, English leather, Brut and Yardley. I’ve always read this forum, but never participated, until now! Thanks for taking the time to read my post, hope everyone is staying safe, and have a nice shave day, or night, or afternoon, or maybe even break!

Clubman Vanilla AS is one thing I would NOT change. I just discovered it a few months ago and it's become one of my favourites.
Welcome to ... whatever it is we've got here!
