Musgo Real - New Scents

I was running out of Musgo Real shaving cream, which is my favorite by far, so I had to put in an order with Bullgoose Shaving for some more. 

That's when I found out that MR has released five new scents.  Orange Amber, Spiced Citrus, Lime Basil, Lavender, and Oak Moss, in addition to the classic.

Curious, I went ahead and started doing some research on the new flavors.  Without being able to nail down anything too specific, it started to look like Oak Moss (pictured above) was the way I wanted to go. 

But, if I have learned anything in researching shaving creams, aftershaves, colognes, and any thing else that's scented, it's this: everybody's taste is different.  What I love you may hate.  What you call the second coming I will call the next going.  Nothing that I can think of is as individual as one's personal taste and distaste.

Bearing this in mind, I ordered a tube of the classic scent as well, one that was proven the only way it can be - by personal use.  I am SO glad I did.

On the morning after it arrived, I opened up my tube of Oak Moss MR Shaving Cream and lathered it up.  It looked like MR, it lathered like MR, certainly it FELT like MR; but good lord, the smell.  I scraped it off my face with my razor for the first pass, gave it some thought, then opened the classic scent.

In case you didn't catch it, I didn't even finish my shave with the OM MR.  The scent that so many swore by on Badger and Blade was a bust for me.

Don't take this as a reason not to try it, because Musgo Real is a damn fine shaving cream.  And like I said, you just might love it.


  1. Nice thing you have mentioned in this article everyone's test is different, they use accordingly whether it may be shaving cream.

  2. Thanks for your Blog about Shaving.

    I recently found a business called (Aussie Shave) that allows you to make low price subscriptions so that cheap high quality razor's will arrive to your door step each month so you don't have to worry about buying them! It's something that annoys me, I figured you might be interested since this is a shaving blog :)

  3. Its interesting but I like Gillette Silver Blues, and they are pretty inexpensive already.

  4. Tom,
    I hope this finds you well. I was told by a few of my safety razor friends to send you a link to my review of 8 different blades i did the other day. I do not really have an outlet for this, i just wrote this up for fun in my spare time. I have put a link bellow. I look forward to hearing what you think. If you happen to take the time to read it, make sure you expand all the photos as you scroll. Thanks
