Grove Aftershave/Cologne | Oakwood, Cranberry, Currant & Moss | A Phoenix Classic Holiday Scent!
Scent Profile: Oakwood, Cranberry, Currant, Moss and a kiss of Apricot. A cool crisp, boozy, almost camphorous holiday accord that you will fall in love with at first sniff!
Lol, as you all know, we get requests a lot. Sometimes for reboots of classic scents and sometimes for our own classic scents that have long since been discontinued. GROVE is just that, a classic Phoenix Shaving scent that was discontinued a couple years back.
That was actually a sad day since in my opinion, it's such a great, solid Fall/Winter accord! Now mind you, i'm not tooting my own horn, this was a Fran fragrance creation, not mine! In fact, here's a little factoid, all of our fall/holiday releases so far with the Shave Cadet (spaceman) on them are Fran scents! If that tells you anything about the strength of her blending capabilities!
GROVE was released way back at the same time as a few other Fall/Winter scents. This approach of dumping so many options on the shave crowd always has a negative effect on at least one product. So GROVE was eclipsed. Looking back that's all it was. Those who happened to pick up this black sheep know exactly what I mean...and that brings me to Ian Ryan.
After you get GROVE in the post and fall madly in love with it, you'll need to thank Ian Ryan for making this happen! I'd say single handily but he seemed to have recruited half of shavedom to help shake us down. Laugh, but i'm serious!
Many of you may have seen his posts on social media, heck, he may have even got you wondering out loud to yourself, "What is this GROVE stuff Ian seems unable to live without?". So we figured we'd do it and surprise him. The trick was just knowing when...I think Black Friday is perfect, right?
So there you have it Ian, GROVE! If you look carefully, you may also find a little piece of Ian in the artwork too...but keep that on the DL. Thanks for believing brother and ENJOY this little Christmas miracle!
Now, the scent.
Grove is as right as rain, as fine as December sunshine...until sundown, that is.
A complex blend of Santa's List sureness tucked like tobacco into a haunted little pocket of the crisp winter woods; where the sound has been known to shut off in an instant, and the snow flurries move in without warning, where Christmas past, present and future apparitions can be seen dancing in the corner of your tearing wind kissed eyes, where you would never dare to go alone or stray to far off from the wassailers, where the veil is thin, where you, our holy day hero, shall solve the greatest mystery of our time...there's something festive still in those winter woods of yore.
A very smart, masculine blend of Oakwood, Cranberry, Currant, Moss and a kiss of Apricot. Smooth like a good scotch and engaging as a good tale told on a star filled winter night safe inside, nestled down in front of the fireplace.
Happy Black Friday Folks & Happy Holidays...All Of Them!
