Very nice, good job. I use neutral wax for last 2 layers to give some depth, but this is not critical.
New suit, new suit, new suit! New shoes, new shoes, new shoes!
Anyone tried Or du Serail yet?
Artisanal low volume products can reap the benefits of technology- Meermin MTO via crowdsource funding for example. In high volume cases, not so easy. I suspect it is just more cost effective for suppliers to use wholesalers as compared to going direct. But supply chains are getting more efficient, so perhaps one day, we will be rid of the evil gouging middleman.  For Australian's, be very careful what you wish for, because the gouging power may just be transferred from...

I have a tobacco fixation recently.    Jeke Slumberhouse- smoky rich cigar, still my absolute favourite, followed closely by TF Tobacco Oud- sourish dirty tobacco backed up with a hint of oud, preferably layered with TF Tobacco Vanille- which is too sweet on its own, for me Keiko Mecheri Oliban- very uniquely well done, but a bit weak, still trying this out.   The non-niche ones I have tried: Boss Number One- synthetic top notes, but the drydown is surprisingly...
Here we go again...gentlemen, start your bitch engines....
Perhaps the reason is to obscure stains and other general signs of poor housekeeping?
