SOTD - June 30, 2016

Barrister and Mann

Today's SOTD is Vetiver Madness with products from Crabtree & Evelyn, Barrister and Mann and Guerlain from #soap to #aftershave and even #deo!

For the shower I used Crabtree & Evelyn Vetiver and Juniperberry triple-milled Heritage soap. I've mentioned this soap before (e.g. so I won't get into it here.

For the shave, the software I used was a combo of "old school" Barrister and Mann white label (and since discontinued) Vetyver Santal soap. Awesome scent; I wish it could live on. I always wanted a nice vetiver soap to go with the Guerlain stuff... This is it. The soap performed wonderfully - copious amounts of cushiony lather with good glide and medium scent strength. See my initial review of Vetyver Santal for more info.

For the finish, I used #Guerlain Vetiver #aftershave and #EdT as well as the matching #deo (some not shown). I love this stuff. I wish it lasted a bit longer, but it's the definitive vetiver for me. Not the smoky Haitian variety; more grassy, more green. Top note is lemon; middle notes are tobacco and vetiver; base notes are nutmeg, tobacco and pepper.

Hardware today included the trusty #Mühle R89 razor with a #Feather blade on shave five. The #Dovo silvertip badger brush did the business in the #GTP scuttle which kept things nice and warm.

I love "vetiver day" thanks to all these wonderful products. When you're hankering for The Green™ this is a solid roundup of products that truly perform.
