a weekend in Munich
we began the day with a long walk at Englischer Garten, before the masses hit there. Villa Stuck is worth a visit, Pinakothek der Moderne had seven new things by Baselitz (and all their permanent things well worth another visit).
Saturday we went to Bavarian State Opera, a ballet evening with Max Richter music, quite a treat.
Rammstein was performing the very same evening, tough choice:)
Sunday a jam session at Unterfahrt jazz club, pretty good.
I preferred the locals to the South American combo which played before.
Did I mention food and beer in Munich? Do go there.
I like that city a lot.
MDC fougère is a gas. I like it a lot. Superb performance and a dream of a scent. I‘m really curious about their vetiver soap. A 200g jug, hardly a trace of the earlier shaves on the surface of this damn hard soap. Glas jug, metal lid, will be used in the kitchen when empty (after many years). Mühle 70 years jubilee brush with silvertip synthetic knot.
I like this knot when traveling. Heavy handle, the chrome end is really massive and heavy, bordering the uncomfortable.
The mild and uncomplicated Barbaros was a very fine match with a Feather blade. Wildly underrated stainless steel razor.
Bulldog a.s. balm feels good, is fully organic, cheap and it’s odd scent doesn’t disturb the edp of the day.
Original Vetiver is a less popular edp by Creed.
I like it a lot. Fresh, green, grassy, elegant, light.
I easily prefer it to other vetivers I had sniffed at, which mostly were less complex and musty.
Notable exception: the new edp by Hermès, a vetiver flanker to Terre d‘Hermès. Less fresh, more bitter notes, more austere, less freshness. Very different, but I like it a lot, too.
No a.s. balm available:( Max Richter composes film music and modern, but melodious stuff. „Kairos“, played that evening, reminds of Vivaldi, but soon gets more modern, streamlined. I liked it a lot. #featherblades #mühleshaving #muhleshaving #martindecandre #barbarosrazors #creedfragrances #shavelikeyourgrandpa #shavelikeyourdad #wetshaveloyalists #wetshaving #scentoftheday #fragrancearmy #fraghead #instafragrance #instafragrances #perfume #fragrance #fragrantica
