Shaving Product Review - Wet Shaving Products "Bay Rum"

Value (Cost, Packaging and Performance)

Lather (Density, Glide and Feel)

Post-shave (Healing, Moisture and Feel)

Scent (Quality, Strength and Longevity)

Each bar has three metrics, each representing 33% of the total (11% = below-avg, 22% = avg, 33% = above-avg, except cost)

Breaking out a favorite; warm, ambery vanilla with myrrh and musk by Wet Shaving Products called Black Amber Vanille in a #soap and #aftershave combo.

My regular readers will know that I'm a huge fan of vanilla in all its forms. For example, Vanille by Barrister and Mann or Lavanille for example - but it doesn't stop there. In fact, I've done a lot of vanilla reviews (the scent, not the reviews themselves). I also enjoy amber and musk a great deal. So it should come as no surprise that I picked up this combo... And gave Black Amber Vanille an in-depth review earlier. I haven't used it in a while, and it was time.

Long story short, notes include vanilla, amber, myrrh and musk. This scent (and performance of Formula T for the money) actually sold me on #wsp_shaving products. Love or hate the tins, it's hard to argue with the value. But I'm all about the scent on this one. It smells fantastic and has nice longevity of 6-8 hours.

Razor today included the stainless steel #TimelessRazor with a .68mm gapped smooth top cap and straight bar rwith a titanium #Stork handle and a fresh #PolSilver blade. Brush for today was the sweet #WildWestBrushworks piece with a Cashmere knot of 24mm. The #GTP scuttle was doing its thing, as always.

Lovely shave today... Not particularly close for some reason, but a DFS at the least. Smelling like a million bucks though.
