One of my favorite smells and fondest memories is of my dad's Old Spice...I'll have to check out the Bay Rum for hubbo. Dad always shaved with a brush and soap. He had an Old Spice soap mug for years until it got broken and I gave him a handmade pottery mug for Father's Day. When he died, I kept the mug and old brush and the last drop in a bottle of Old Spice. I used to give him some every Christmas my whole life...in later years it was kind of a lark, but he asked for a new bottle every year. My brother recently thought it would be nice to use soap and a brush and I found some and then found an Old Spice mug at an antique shop. I gave it to him this Father's Day and my sister in law secretly told me that he got teary eyed at bedtime that night
Dad used to give my grandpa good old fashioned hot towel, straight edge type shaves when he was in the nursing home. It made him feel so much better.
And I think that a good clean smelling man is super hot!

i haven't made shaving soap in awhile, mason. what do you like in a shaving soap besides dense, creamy lather. does clay help?

(btw, i make bar soap, not cream/foam soap.)

Clay? I have no idea what goes into the stuff but can't imagine it containing clay. Most of the soaps these days are like a hard gelatin type soap. I buy those as well as tubes of cream which seem to work into a thicker lather.

The most important aspect is good lubricity, but a nice lather and scent are good.

I have had guys walk by and make my knees go weak just from the way they smell. My all time favorite was when we went out and Daniel wore Swiss Army. Lord we danced extra close those evenings. I love that smell. I haven't been able to find it in a longgggg time. I also loved to watch him shave. So many things I miss like that.

Recently, my husband wanted some cologne and picked up a bottle of Old Spice. He smelled gawd awful. I don't remember it being that bad when my Dad used it. Maybe they've changed the formulation.

I shop from a little catalog/online store www.vermontcountrystore.com and they carry all sorts of stuff like bay rum, razor blades, shaving soap, etc. I think they carry Hai Karate, too. But my favorite was the English Leather I always bought my DH.

Mason, my older brothers and dad all had brush cuts and they used to share this humongous pump jar of Brylcreem. (Replenished frequently.) And then to make sure the front of the brush cut stood up properly, they used Butch Wax. I don't think the boys had to worry about to many women running their fingers through they hair. LOL!
