Green Irish Tweed is a scent that you either love or have no affection for, whatsoever. Me? I Love it.
And while I no longer splurge on a Creed bottle for the scent, there are many clones out there that are so close that unless you have a perfumer’s nose, you can hardly tell which is the clone and which is the real thing.
WSP’s offering is one of these or at least close enough that there is not that much difference to make a difference. 😉

Trying out new blades too. Treet Black Beauties, that from most accounts, are good blades if somewhat without longevity. But considering that it was 100 blades for less then $8.00, longevity is not really an issue.
This blade had conflicting reviews but as they say, your mileage may vary and I have just found that out myself.
For me, the blade is sharp.
Not feather sharp, nothing is feather sharp but definitely along with say Personnas and as smooth.
On a fresh blade, the shave took off stubble from my difficult areas easily and left me with a glass BBS face. At the price I paid for, even if they are “one day” blades, they are a good buy.
As with everything shaving, YMMV.
