You know what’s great about subcultures? Many of them highlight and rely on traditions. You can hate them, you can love them, but you cannot deny the fact that various subcultures revived so many forgotten things and brought them to a new level with a new modern twist.

Ye Olde Barbershoppe is a rather nice combination of woodsy and spicy scents (mostly amber and bay rum, with a bit of musk according to Mama Bear’s website). Does it smell like a barber shop? Well, I guess that depends upon the barber shop. I guess the problem is that there isn’t any real agreement on what a barber shop scent should smell like, even amongst the experts. I can say it doesn’t smell a thing like Taylor of Old Bond Street’s Shaving Shop cream. Which overall I think is a good thing, I do prefer this scent.

I am a convert to wet shaving since September, 2010. My Dad taught me how to shave with canned foam and a DE razor. I went electric for many years and I think my beard became tougher in middle age, which instigated my return to wet shaving. You’ve heard it before: couldn’t get a decent shave with an electric, even with new cutters; tried cartridges again, they clogged; got sticker shock at the prices of replacement cartridges, checked out DE razors and got hooked, yadda, yadda, yadda.
