Wow, it really has been months since I’ve posted one of these. The last few months have been very full with my new job taking up a lot of my headspace of late. And to top that off I got hit kind of hard with the covid bug which took me a bit of time to come back from. It has been over a month and just in the last week or so would I say I’m 100%. It seems kind of fitting for my first SOTD back to be with Plague Doctor from RazoRock. I didn’t pick it up specifically for this post but I can say I was intrigued by the moniker since the whole pandemic thing came about.
Plague Doctor is described as being a scent of 17th century Venice, white musk, herbs & spices. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I picked it up but I absolutely love the scent. I’d describe it as fresh, sweet and with just a touch of herbal floral nature to it. Scent strength is on the lighter side of medium. This is an absolutely perfect scent for spring / summer. It is very refreshing and enjoyable for the shave but will pair with a tonne of seasonal fragrances. RazoRock soap won’t win any marks for performance but it gets the job done. It is a basic, yet stable shave soap formula. You will get a solid lather with enough slickness to protect for the shave. Post shave is pretty bare bones. It is a good entry-level soap with pleasant scents and is pretty easy to work with for newbs. The aftershaves are really good value if you like straight-up alcohol splashes. The scents are strong and the price is wallet-friendly.
Had a nice, refreshing shave today with this set and I can honestly say I’ve gone back to this scent several times since picking it up. For me, definitely a win.
All for now – J
