Uno…. one. 1st day, 1st shave. I figured this was the perfect setup to start the year off right.
Uno is an offering made in collaboration with Grey Matter Parfums and Ariana & Evans. Scent notes on this are bergamot, vetiver, leather, geranium, lavender, patchouli, and cedar. This is a fantastic scent, very well balanced. This has the brightness of the bergamot, a hint of floral and a nice grassy/earthiness over a really solid base of cedar. Think of this as a very upscale barbershop cologne. A magnificent blend.
Performance was on point as always with A&E. Still one of the top bases in my den, I have this dialed in spot on. Fantastic cushion, elite slickness (lathered and residual) and a fantastic post shave. If you don’t have one in your den, make it a goal for this year.
The Wostenholm made short work of the shave today. Two quick and efficient passes ad I was good to go. No cuts, no weepers, a damn fine shave. Perfect way to start the year off right.
I hope everyone had a fantastic and safe New Year’s celebration last night and I wish you all the best on 2020!
