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!
