SOTD - June 24, 2015


Shaving Product Review - Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements "11235..." and
Krampert's Finest "Frostbite" and

Great SOTD today - with a motive! It's all about the numbers today, folks. PAA 11235... #soap and 4711 #EdC with the sub-zero temps of Krampert's Finest Frostbite #aftershave.

The software is a relatively new creation by #PAA that borrows the scent of a certain German concoction by the name of 4711. What to call it? 11235... of course (1+1+2=4 4+3=7 7+5=12 or 4712). It smells dead-on; citrusy to the max. The problems however, are twofold. There's no matching aftershave, which would also overcome the biggest shortcoming of 4711 - longevity. But this is good, as I'm getting a hot #MailCall today... By the time I get it, the scent will be a memory and I can try some of it out!

Since there was no matching aftershave, I went with Krampert's Finest Frostbite. This juice is the shizznit! Outstanding face feel and healing properties; it's got all the right top-shelf ingredients. The least of which is certainly not the menthol. When this stuff is fresh (it seems to fade a bit over time), it will freeze your face but good! Rinse your hands, lest your fingers get a chill.

Hardware consisted of the #Dovo silvertip badger brush and #Feather AS-D2 razor with a #Gillette 7OCB blade somewhere on shave... Four? What else, #GTP scuttle held onto the suds.

A nice, easy, breezy shave for the midweek - and lovely scent on the wind!
