Shave of the day, 13th July 2021, PAA Fresco

Pre-Shave : Shower, PAA Cube
Brush : PAA Peregrino
Soap : PAA Fresco
Razor : PAA Copper Ascension w/Bic Chrome Platinum Blade
Post Shave : PAA Fresco Aftershave Cologne
Others : PAA Fresco Deodorant and Epic Solid Cologne


Fresco to put it bluntly, was a surprise, as I have never used the original so I had no idea how it would smell like other than “fresh” and based off the notes Douglas provided.

From the Fresco Page :

” Top Notes: Herbaceous, Eucalyptus, Citrus, Fresh 
Middle Notes: Cardamom, Spicy, Green, Balsam
Bottom Notes: Woody, Patchouli, Mossy & Masculine!


Orange, Galbanum, Bergamot, Lime, Lemon, Lavender and Black Currant; Middle Notes of Rose, Cardamom and Lily-of-the-Valley; Base Notes of Patchouli, Opoponax, Cedar, Oakmoss and Ambergris.

What popped out at me the most was Eucalyptus, lime dominant citrus, a strong cardamom backbone sweetened by florals and a hint of woods.

I had to wonder, why, how did Shulton fell given that they had a scent that could have easily come from any of the blue blood Perfume Houses. Had this scent been put out by Dior, Creed, or Guerlain, no one would have blinked an eye.

And yes, love it.
Would recommend it to anyone who love fresh, spiced or summer scents.

The Copper Ascension and Bic Chrome Platinum combo made for a fantastic easy faceturebation BBS shave.

Stay safe
Stay sane
Stay happy
