    After a trying day saying bye to my dad at the crematorium for the last time, I decided to mark the day by buying something to remember him with.

    Had my eye on the brush for a week or so and today seemed like the best day to buy it. Hopefully I will not get stung by tax but I doubt I will be that lucky.[​IMG]

    The purchase was down to curiosity really and I liked the handle. Plus half of purchases with wet shaving are purely guess work as not many people are able to try a product before recieving an item.

    I have one of those. Bought mine in Dec. 2014 if I recall. It shaves just like a regular Krona except it is lighter and somewhat more bulkier.
     
  8. Excellent! That's good to know, I'm yet to try a Krona, although I've been scanning around for some. But will give this Platinum a go in the meantime. I understand this was a short lived successor to the Krona.

    3 Attars, courtesy of @globalm.

    I received:
    1. Al-Rehab Shaikhah - agarwood (oud), white musk, rose, jasmine, carnation, saffron, cardamom, ambergris and resins! Sounds like an interesting concoction.
    2. White Musk. Not sure of the origin of this one!
    3. Al Haramain (maybe?) Attar Makkah - potentially a sweetened, strawberry incense which is apparently reminiscent of Montale Mukhallat.
    Looking forward to trying these out!

    Also, circa 30mL of Green Irish Tweed. 10mL of Armani Code Ultimate.

    Ooh, interesting... Shaikhah sounds potent ;)

    I got:

    1. Ajmal Royal Amber - Really interesting scent on this, sweet, sour, warm and slightly smokey. Someone online said this of it: "Beautiful warm sexy scent that brings back memories of Arab culture and incense and smoking shisha on the beach." That's a perfect description that I cannot improve on.

    2. Al-Afdal Persian patchouli - This is sweet and heady, the most delicate patchouli I've ever smelt.

    3. Nemat 96 "My Choice" - From the bottle it smells like acetone :eek: Not tried it on skin yet... Tomorrow!

    I've worked out my No. 2 to be Al Haramain as well. Trying a small bit on the back of my hand. Very nice and subtle fragrance but kicking out a good waft of smell. Musky-sweet, rather than sugary or floral.

    Went into Superdrug on way home for a shifty and picked up a bottle of Nivea 2 Phase Aftershave Lotion. Noticed they sell Ingram shaving cream which I had never seen in there, did not pick any up though as I have enough soap and cream to be going in with for the moment.

    Gave the face a wash and splashed the lotion on, nice and cooling with a faint scent. For two pound odd it is a bargain, though I will need to see how I feel after shaving with it.

    Three attars courtesy of @globalm arrived today.

    Al Haramain Sultan
    Al Haramain Judi
    Al Haramain Najdah

    I've not tried them yet or looked up the scent notes. Had a little sniff of the oudi and first impressions are it's very potent.

    Thanks again for these.

  15. The butterscotch Muhle synthetic Steve Bowles was selling. At last a decent brush to take away with me.

    Williams has a Denim vibe to it, I will check again as I have tested several of the new fragrances today. I haven't owned a Blue Floid before, it is marked as Revlon rather than the subsidiary name that escapes me.
