    Saturday, June 29, 2024: Et Ego in Arcadia


    After a long time, good-bye stubble! Very nice shave, with a satisfyingly creamy lather (much better than the Cella I used while traveling).

    Have a good night!

    Sandalwood Saturday, The Penultimate Challenge

    • Brush: Zenith r/Wetshaving exclusive MOAR BADGER (Silvertip) #SUBBROOSH
    • Razor: Eversharp-Schick Hydro-magic (I2, NOS)
    • Blade: Personna Injector Blade
    • Lather: Proraso – Sandalwood
    • Post Shave: Taylor of Old Bond Street – Sandalwood
    • Fragrance: Le Labo – Santal 33

    I can’t believe that LG is already almost over again!

    Theme: Proraso Red is a dry, warm, slightly dirty sandalwood scent.

    Relevant post and frag: Both the post and frag are completely sandalwood-forward frags. I smell like dry twigs on a sunny patch of forest floor.

    Challenge: It would be a bit unethical for me to answer since I know the current rankings. Well, now I do, but I knew this challenge would come, and I answered today’s challenge on day 1, before I had relevant knowledge. Here’s my answer:

    • Main ROTY will go to u/MudAccording. He’s going full hog right out of the gate. The other two roty prizes are random so your guess is as good as mine.
    • photocontest goes to u/Crossan1983, that black and white shot looks well set up, like he means business.
    • FoF u/Hugbckt: Great write-up, someone to watch.
    • LG goes to u/Tsrblke. He was a joy to follow last year, and this first post looks like he’s full of energy this year, plus, he has that racing team!
    • No Scruba: The real winner here is going to be everyone (awww!) I’m looking forward to u/Enndeegee’s no scrub list, and dread his scrub list.

    • Brush: Summer Break Soaps w/Maggard 28mm Silvertip Badger
    • Razor: Wolfman Guerilla (Gen 1)
    • Blade: Bolzano Superinox (German) (17)
    • Lather: Proraso - Red - Soap
    • Post Shave: House of Mammoth - Santa Noir - Aftershave
    • Fragrance: Stirling Soap Co. - Varen - EdT

    Proraso Red is the only soap I have, that I know of, that has any sandalwood in it at all. Luckily it’s all sandalwood, so there’s no question about it meeting the requirements of today’s theme.
