Kiritimati Aftershave/Cologne - Seasonal Release: Frankincense, Myrrh and West Indian Bay - One Year Aged
Scent Notes: Frankincense - Myrhh - Bay - Seaweed - Toasted Oak - Ambergris - Benzoin - Blue Spruce - Tobacco - Labdanum - Lavender
Kiritimati is possibly the most rugged, bad ass, scent of the holiday Season! Bay Rum just got festive!
This is what Christmas should smell like...however, it would take a dramatic series of events to make this possible.
1) Santa needs to be real.
2) Mrs. Santa leaves him because she's bored and he sleeps too much.
She really just longs to be held and the foot massages by the elves isn't cutting it anymore.
3) Santa reacts to this rather poorly, heads to Christmas Island in the East Indies and turns it into a pirates utopia! At least this is what comes to mind when I take a whiff of this stuff!
Oak Barrel Aged
This batch of Kiritimati is part one of my Oak Barrel approach to perfuming and man is it magical! I have kinda blurred the line between brewing and perfuming thanks to a good brewing friend of mine.
Honestly, Working with casks just seems more manlier and in-tune for the vibe I am trying to create...Pirate Island meets the Night Before Christmas! The charred oak barrels add a sweetness, a wholeness and a woodiness that you would typically only get from a good, aged drink. The batch was matured or aged for 1 year using pure essential oils and resins.
Yep, that's a genuine West Indian Bay Leaf in there too! Lol, probably what folks remember the most about this seasonal classic, that bay leaf! Though naturally decorative this intact leaf will also add to the aftershave in time inline with a traditional tincture!
Happy Holidays Folks and a YO, HO, HO!
Aftershave is 100ml glass flask bottle
