Today I figured would be a great day to roll with an aquatic scent. Up today is this recent acquisition from Cold River Soap Works. Colonia Mediterrana is a really nice aquatic cologne scent. It is described as aquatic, citrus and herbal. Scent strength is on the lighter side of medium, which I find pretty typical for me with aquatic scents.
This particular soap is in the Cold River Soap Works ‘Glide’ base, a triple butter & tallow formulation. This would be a mid-soft base. For me, I didn’t get the large pillow of lather rather, I got a very silky and creamy textured lather. I wouldn’t say it was overly thirsty, I was able to get a nice sheen to the lather without adding a tremendous amount of water. I found performance to be really nice. Cushion was good, slickness (lathered and residual) very good, so much so I almost lost the razor in hand. Post shave was really nice as well. I was able to get a really smooth 3 pass shave.
I’m really enjoying this Ever-Ready SE. The razor feels very different than the DE razors I typically shave with. It is hard to describe, but I can tell there is a bit more rigidity to the blade. I don’t know if this will be the case with all SE razors, but I intend to find out 🙂 I highly recommend adding one to your collection.
For the post today, I just added a touch of unscented balm to ensure the cold prairie winter doesn’t continue to wreak havoc on my skin. I then followed up with a couple swiped of my Zoha Aroma Invictus Aqua inspired fragrance oil. I find this aquatic/woodsy scent was a really nice match for the soap and left me smelling like a boss. An awesome shave for the day.
