    Nostalgia Times and Shaving

    It seems the memories of old times are coming back to my mind - so far away now - when I was just a boy trying to become a man through the adult rite of shaving. At those times I was using what I had available at home, and this means my father's shaving products, including his razor - a Gillette Flare Tip Rocket II, which is now one of the very few DE razors in my collection - as well as his soap and after shave. I guess his favorite soap is no longer in production and I cannot exactly remember its name - it certainly was Italian and had a lovely strong almond fragrance - however I still keep his brushes, including a gorgeous Omega 47 and the memory of his favorite aftershave: Aqua Velva Ice Blue. It took me sometimes to discover Floid - it was once the dominant fragrance you could smell when you entered any Italian barber shop about 40 years ago - which then became my favorite aftershave. Yesterday, while I was shopping in a mall, I noticed Aqua Velva and I was surprised to see nothing of the bottle of those times survived today: different shape, different closure and logo. I could not however help buying a bottle and this is the aftershave I used today. It was not so bad, the fragrance seems to be quite the same as well as the performance, bringing back the memory of those old times.
