    Cheers, hopefully it's not lost in transit. No card re customs either.

    I am of the opinion that you won’t get one where Colonial are concerned (customs payment) it will just get delivered.

    Cheers, a waiting game then for the parcel to come through the door, hopefully!

    All the best,

  5. @Sid James is quite correct, both of mine just came straight to my door and bypassed the revenue men! :) P.

    Cheers, I'm a little worried that the tracker shows that the parcel has been in transit for 4 days - me being impatent possibly :)

    A few arrivals today, some blades from Agent Shave and a small sampler from Try A Blade, superb service from Try A Blade, ordered Saturday or Sunday evening and arrived today. Same time as my Agent Shave order, now that is good service!

    P&B Borealis also arrived, I do have the flu at the moment but the scent on first sniff leaves me underwhelmed. With Tallow & Steel Boreal waiting in the wings, I don't hold much hopes of it being a keeper. Which is disappointing :(

    EDIT Sniffed both side by side, definitely more going on with the Boreal than Borealis. Hopefully Borealis opens up in use.

  9. After speaking to a nice chap at MWF a small order was placed as the body lotion apparently makes a nice post Shave balm.

    The Colonial (General) Black arrived today, out of the blue.

    It looks beautiful, I cannot wait to shave with it.

  16. Not shaving related, unless I need to shave in the dark during a power outage, but new for me is this BLF Q8 super-highpower flashlight, obtained through a group buy on a flashlight forum. Its output is 5,000+ lumens, with a peak intensity of 50,000+ cd, and a range of 450+ meters. It is waterproof and weighs 400g without the batteries.

    I just bought the same ones, purely based on the scent descriptions!
