    Thumbs up Sun August 14th - Sat August 20th

    .
    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Genco 'Gold Seal'
    Brush: Simpson Polo 10
    Cream: Geo F Trumper Sandalwood
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    ASB: AOS Sandalwood
    EDC: Elizabeth Arden Sandalwood
    Summary: I always had a weakness for Genco razors and my 'Gold Seal' being no exception, it performed flawless today. Paired with the top notch GFT Sandalwood cream, AOS Sandalwood ASB and E.A. Sandalwood EDC I can honestly say, I was overwhelmed with Sandalwood fragrance for a very long time.
    As always, I'm also overwhelmed by everyone's participation and brotherhood in our SOTD. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this the best place in cyberspace.

    Last nights shave:

    Shaved in the shower. The one part of straight shaving I don't appreciate is that it is dangerous to do with a straight, I used a DE.

    Hot shower
    Stephan's Shaving cream
    1956 Gillette, Wilkinson Blade
    Lilac Vegetal AS
    Vaseline for men.

    Quick and easy shave while in the shower. Then off to dinner with the family. Anyone ever in Bergen County NJ and you like thin crust pizza, you have to hit Kintchley's in Mahwah.

    Enjoy the day.
