Blade: Rapira Platinum Lux
Brush: DS Cosmetic Synthetic
Soap: The Club Amber Rose
Aftershave: The Club Amber Rose
A day late. Things have been a bit crazy around here lately. My day job has switched as I started a new position at work. My slopitch season has started with our first tournament and league games (and I’m already on the DL) so I haven’t been able to get a SOTD write up lately.
I did receive this new set in a mail call from The Club so I really wanted to give it a go. This was a blind buy, a set I added in while ordering the Choco Cubano splash to match the soap I already had. The label was cool and the scent notes of Amber, Rose, Incense and Tobacco sounded right in my wheel house so I added it to the cart. Boy am I glad I did.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of the Tallow & Goat Milk base that Peter was put together. Right now, top soap base in my den. Slickness (lathered and residual), cushion and post shave are all at elite levels. His scent strengths are nice and dialed up and his packaging is on point. His matching post shave also performs exceptionally well.
The big surprise of the show though was the scent. I really loved this offering. The Rose and Incense play together very well, softening both the floral and spice notes which, on their own, could easily overpower. The Amber and Tobacco bring in some sweetness and *man up* this soap with the masculine vibe. I can’t believe this scent isn’t getting more buzz as it is a big win for me. If you are a fan of Peter’s product and don’t have this, don’t sleep, pick a set up. You will need a Club membership but it is worth it just to see all the cool offerings he has coming down the pipe.
As for the razor, the open comb plate has taken over for my closed comb plates in a big way. All the Karve plates are incredible smooth but I find this just works with the lather better and the audible feedback is a big improvement for me. Now I just wait patiently for the stainless version.
A great shave for a Friday…. posted on a Saturday. Have a great weekend all!
