    Hi Renato, I think my technique definitely needs work as no matter how lightly I shave my alum block always gives me a telling off. I tend to use an Alum block then a splash of pinaud, after that I...

    I'd get a refund on your nose if you don't like rive gauche. That said, I can see why you wouldn't like Kouros, it's a patchouli horror story.
  5. Re: Paper Passion: The Smell of a new Books/Paper fragrance!

    I'm an academic and a teacher, I will wear this along with Tom Ford Tuscan leather before an interview at a university. I will smell like a leather bound book and they will not be able to resist me!

    Re: Best Combo with Shaving Scents?

    i actually prefer the smell of shaving soap over and against cologne smells. In fact I buy colognes with one single thought in mind "what fragrance will smell like I have freshly shaved all day". The...
  12. Re: The Secret of Nick-less Wet Shaving Appears to be...............

    I use shave oil, not the pre shave oil, the stuff that you are meant to use for a shave straight away. I put this on before working up a good lather with a quality shave soap and then use a DE with...

    Re: Tuscan Leather Concentrated Oil

    i am pretty sure it will be the surrati knock off, it won't be the pure perfume oil as this would be too strong to wear, it would burn your skin and i am sure he would be selling it a little more...
