    Hey @SpeedyPC I guess you're named speedy for a reason?

    Err.. a little too early for a new weekly SOTD thread as it's still very much Friday 24th here in the UK.

    The mods have requested no new threads until after midnight UK time.

    I'm pretty much the wrong guy to ask about scents given that I can't breathe through my nose at the best of times (deviated septum and broken nose) BUT It's a reasonably strong Patchouli scent on opening the tub and giving it a good sniff but the scent does tend to evaporate when lathered.

    As you've been forced to live in the ATG/GMT space time continuum, I hope you don't get too many complaints from your Aussie neighbours, regarding the awful weather surrounding your home. :eek:

    Birch Tar Soap and Groomed Facial Scrub
    Vitos Preshave Cream
    P&B Imperial RumSoap
    Yaqi Mysterious Space 26mm Tuxedo
    Ikon SBS on a Windrose Damascus Handle
    Gillette 7 O'Clock Yellow Blade
    Alum Block and Rinse
    BBA Post Shave
    Benjamins Mentholated Bay Rum

    First time using the Ikon SBS which was given some heft by the Windrose handle. I have never had much interest in dual format razors...but for some reason this one intrigued me. Perhaps it was the reversible base plate . For this shave I used the less aggressive mode and got a wonderful BBS shave with 3 passes and a little touchup:)

    My nearest and dearest is away for the weekend attending a British Dressage event, so tonight it will be Beer, Burgers and Strictly......or perhaps that should be strictly Beer and Burgers!

    Enjoy your weekend:)
