    Default Bit of a bargain

    I can't resist a bargain and beside I like my Omega boar brushes. That is not to mention the Omega soap is none too shabby either. Anyway I got the Omega set at Winners for $12.50 CAD/$ 10.00 USD/8.60 Euro/7.65 GBP. Think I covered all the bases.

    I'm glad you got a bargain. I am most entertained by the multiple currency conversions. It should have everyone covered off.

    I guess I could have added the conversions for the Ozzie and Kiwi dollars too just to be more inclusive. Inclusive is one of those little known Canadian traits, I believe.

    The brush stand and case look handy for travel.

    What scent is the cream?

    My thoughts exactly on the brush stand and case. The scent of the shave cream is sort of eucalyptus which is not too surprising as the fragrance is listed in the ingredients as Eucalyptus Globus Leaf Oil. Seems pleasant enough to me.

    I got that same set a few years ago in the U.S., but don't remember exactly what I paid except it was in USD.

    I love the brush and still use it as part of my regular rotation. The soap used to be made by Proraso, and was the same as Proraso Green minus the menthol. If that's not it, it's really close. I imagine it's still the same. I like it too. The brush stand works for most smaller brushes quite well. It was probably one of the best shaving purchases I ever made for the cost. Enjoy!

    I've never used a boar brush. Never saw the appeal, but so many people here seem to really like them. I think I might have to track one down. I have always assumed that they were stiff and scratchy, am I wrong? I expect very good for hard soaps though.
    Fact: Opinions are not the same as facts... Well, that's my opinion anyway
