AUTHENTIC SHAVE & CUT
I feel kind of odd writing about a barbershop, being a girl. I am not even allowed in the store. There are a few things about this barbershop that make me want to be a guy for a day though.
First of all, the ambience. The weathered walls, the industrial feeling combined with the class of the fifties. Hats, braces and the antique furniture.
Then the smell. Smells always get to me. Wether it is the smell of a dish while walking a strange city, or a smell of wax in a salon… They instantly trigger memories in my brain.
At Figaro’s Barbershop there was this one guy that was spraying around a fresh smell constantly. I can’t tell what is exactly… but I’m guessing lavender-ish.
This brings me to my next big love about the shop; the spraybottle was an empty Jack Daniel’s bottle with a sprayer on top! You can imagine my memory about Jack Daniel’s is rather confused from that day on – same image, different smell…
Wandering Lissabon soon? Bring a guy so you can secretly sneak around the front door a bit and enjoy the shop as much as you can. If you ARE a guy… Get a full treatment and go back over and over again!
