Review: +Top Shelf Subscription Box  - Take Two
Founder: Garry Johnson

In my first review of Top Shelf I pointed out my concerns on a number of things and made some suggestions to Garry on how he might go about making changes. Well, Box #2 is here and it’s a whole new ball game. What a difference 30 days makes. 

Let me start off by saying how nice the presentation is now. Gone is the over sized box, no more ugly bubble wrap. Gone is the contents list on scarp paper.  Now in box #2 we have a wonderful sized box tailored to its contents. All items are cushioned by a bed of tiny accordion like strips of paper (very festive) and the contents list is presented on a thicker cardboard like piece of paper. The text is clear and legible highlighting all the included items in bold text along with Garry’s personal take on each one.

Box #2 contents:

Boellies Panama 1924 Shaving Soap
Omega shaving Brush #1147 “Mixed Midget”
Antica Barbieria Colla Aftershave Milk/Balm
Treet “Black Beauty” Double Edge Blades 10pk
Treet Vintage Super Single Edge Blades “For Display Purposes Only”
Shaving Soap Stick Container

So let me talk about the hits of box number two. The Boellis Panama 1924 Shaving Soap. I was so happy to get this I can’t tell you how amazing it is that this was included.  It has a wonderful almond scent and is crafted with pure almond oil. This soap is considered to be among the best in the world but it’s not cheap 8oz for around $50.00

Next up is the Omega shaving brush #11047. The Omega Mighty Midget Shaving Brush combines gray badger hair and boar bristles in a smart looking acrylic handle. This compact brush is high quality. The perfect blend of two hairs makes it ideal for soaps and creams and even works great as a travel brush.  This brush retails for about $17.00

Another is Antic Barbieria Colla aftershave. This Almond scented aftershave oil is just wonderful. At 3.oz for $79.00 it better be. I have never seen this one before so let me read you the description. This alcohol free post shave treatment cools, relaxes and invigorates the face after shaving. The scent is both invigorating and divine. In fact, if you close your eyes, you will swear that you are sitting in a swanky barbershop in Italy.

Lastly the shaving soap stick container great for travel and for using with your soft soaps or creams. 

Let me talk about the misses. I see only one. I can’t guess why it was included “The Treet Vintage Super Vingle Edge Blades” for display purposes only. This display box is from 1970 that’s 45 years ago. Garry said he found most of the blades he’s open to be rusty which is why they are for display only. I’m not sure what the thinking was here nostalgia? Cool looking box? As stated in the contents card they just didn’t pass quality inspection. For me it  holds no value. I would have rather had anything, styptic pencils something other then this.

So this box was truly TOPSHELF a great value and wonderful presentations with a few surprises to boot. I’m very impressed and hope to see more boxes like this in the future from Garry.

 Well Done!

Review
Company: Dr. Jon’s Shaving Soap
Product: Black Label

I received a Dr. Jon’s Soap from Nathan Clark with a custom brush I ordered a few weeks back. (That story coming soon) and now had the chance to try Black Label. Not a big fan of tobacco scented soaps but I was eager to give this one a try.

 The 2oz travel size tin has a great looking label. Two crossing straight razors with a man (It might be Jon) in the middle dressed in top hat, round glasses and sporting great mustache.  The top has the popular elastic strip that wrap around the outer edge on the tin. You have to love the way Jon labels his products. They are without a doubt some of the most eye-catching graphics I’ve seen on artisan soaps they do have a way of capturing your attention. 

The scent is not your standard tobacco scent. This one has uniqueness about it not found in others. It’s a sweet smelling scent but it has a masculine side to it as well. The notes on this are tobacco, oak moss, lavender, strawberry, bergamot and violet. I do notices almost all of the notes but what comes thru for me most are oak Moss, Lavender, strawberry and tobacco in the order.  Scent strength is about a 3.5 to 4.  I need to point out that the soap is very soft almost cream like so loading your brush is should not be a problem so don’t push down on your brush too hard no need for that here.

If you ever tried Dr. Jon’s soaps before then you know that the performance is top notch the lather is amazing slickness and glide are present for the entire shave. Jon’s offering of the smaller 2oz size allows me to try all of his soaps for less than $35.00. Currently that’s 5 different soaps and you get more than enough shaves from each one. I’m on my 6 shave with the same 2oz tin and have plenty left for another 6 and beyond.

So I really did like Dr.Jon’s Black Label. It’s a soap that is unlike any other as scent goes. Very unique and the performance is excellent.

Dr. Jon’s Shaving Soap
Black Label 2oz $7.95 / 4oz $14.95

You have to love the way Jon labels his products. They are without a doubt some of the most eye-catching graphics I’ve seen on artisan soaps they do have a way of capturing your attention. 

The scent is not your standard tobacco scent. This one has uniqueness about it not found in others. It’s a sweet smelling scent but it has a masculine side to it as well. The notes on this are tobacco, oak moss, lavender, strawberry, bergamot and violet. I do notices almost all of the notes but what comes thru for me most are oak Moss, Lavender, strawberry and tobacco in the order.  Scent strength is about a 3.5 to 4.  I need to point out that the soap is very soft almost cream like so loading your brush is should not be a problem so don’t push down on your brush too hard no need for that here.

If you ever tried Dr. Jon’s soaps before then you know that the performance is top notch the lather is amazing slickness and glide are present for the entire shave. Jon’s offering of the smaller 2oz size allows me to try all of his soaps for less than $35.00. Currently that’s 5 different soaps and you get more than enough shaves from each one. I’m on my 6 shave with the same 2oz tin and have plenty left for another 6 and beyond.

So I really did like Dr.Jon’s Black Label. It’s a soap that is unlike any other as scent goes. Very unique and the performance is excellent.

I was looking for a place to shoot and came across Brookhaven Range and I'm so glad I did. The knowledge of the staff is simply amazing. You will meet the most friendliest people at this range. One of the best things about this range, they take safety SERIOUS and if you're not YOUR OUT! This place has so much to offer Rifle/Pistol/Trap/Skeet/Archery speaking of Trap, Bill one of the guys who mans the pulling station has given me so many tips on shooting Trap its like having a private lesson. In the main office sometimes have used rifles for sale they also sell Ammo paper targets and clothing. I hope its stays here for many years to come.
