Semogue 1250 Shaving Brush
[Boar Hair]

€11.17 Ex VAT
€13.74 Inc VAT

As Vintage Scent is coming up on it's 5 year anniversary, I thought it would be appropriate to bump this thread about one of my favorite brushes. As most brush reviews are written in the excitement of a newly purchased brush, it's interesting to look at the brush month's down the line.

Along with the 830, the humble 1250 is in effect my "go to" boar brush. That's not to say I don't love my other Semogue boars, but when I dream of face lathering soaps while I'm asleep, it's the lovely wood handled 1250 that I see.

Now that I've used 1250 a little over the year it is incredibly soft and has maintained it's backbone. Although it's fine for bowl lathering both creams and soaps, it really excels as a face lathering brush. It easily loads any soap, the soft tips feel great on my face (I prefer little or no scritch) and remains as handsome as the day we met.

Hats off to Bruno at Vintage Scent and Senior Gomez for producing such a brush.
