Full PAA shave baby!
Well Almost.
The Van Yulay bowl is just too awesome not use. Besides, their travel scuttle has been sold out for ages and I don’t feel comfortable shipping ceramics half way around the world.


And we are back to the usual scent strength you come to expect from a PAA shave. Etiher that or my nose is just not picking up on Future Fiction as I should.
But we are doing Copalli today and whooooooooaaaaaaaa!
If you like woody scents like Oud, herbalistic scents like Sage, you are going to love this.

From Doug’s description.
” Black Copal Forward, with a kiss of Palo Santo. Ethereal, Aromatic, Resinous, Ambrosial and Balsamic. “

The long and short, Black Copal smells kind of like Oud with smoky blackcurrants, it had a romp with Sage or in this case Palo Santo and they had a kid and that kid is Copalli.

For anyone who loves Solstice, this is kind of like a more woody, oudy, smoky blackcurrant Solstice.
Sort of.
Where oud is darker more spicier, this is more green, still a little dark, a little heavy but smoky fruit undertone.
Where Solstice’s sage is kinda sweet and herbalistic, this is more resinous with amber on top, more raw cut woods, green fruit smell.

Copalli is definitely a very masculine and evokes an scent image of dark green woods.

The Cube and CK-6 formula is just too awesome. Super slick, super great feel post shave.
Getting Glass “I keep touching my face” BBS shaves every day, with zero nicks, zero weepers, zero irritation even when shaving twice a day should be illegal. 🙂

Smelling great!
Feeling great!
Effing epic start to the day!
