Alt-Eleven Aftershave & Cologne - A Mentholated Classic!
Notice: Contains Alcohol, Only Shipped Within The USA (lower 48), no International or Military Addresses]
THIS my friends has been in the works for about 3 years! Alt-Eleven is clearly an homage to Alt Innsbruck and man did it take some time; a pet project I would return to every few months to push and pull once again, really tweak it out. This is not only a tribute to this classic 63 year old splash (and edt) but also a toast to our customers who kept emailing me and checking in, pleading and begging for a matching soap! I told you it would happen gents and it is finished!

*The Stuff That Sets Our Aftershave/Colognes Apart:
As with all my long lasting aftershave/colognes Alt-Eleven is packed with more than enough face saving ingredients too: Spanish Moss Hydrosol, which grows wild in Virginia and seemed fitting not only for it's soothing, astringent qualities but also as a grace note that typically would be wafting in the air around the tobacco fields.
I also added a bit of Apricot Blossom Hydrosol that has a similar, complimenting profile to the tobacco flower added to create shape, body and add integrity to the projection length, also a wonderful skin soother and rejuvenator. Lastly some of my favorite quality ingredients: Aloe Vera, Carrot Extract, Cucumber Seed Oil, Seaweed Extract, Prickly Pear Oil and of course, Alum.
Virginia Tobacco Flower: Nicotiana Alata. Whimsical yet manly, rugged and genteel at the same time. Then there is that big kiss of menthol that really gives this scent it's lift. I need to emphasize, this is not a cured tobacco scent of cigar or pipe but the flower itself, a completely unique scent or the true signature, unadulterated scent of the plant, natures aromatic profile of Nicotiana Tabacum. Note: I did also add tobacco absolute to the blend in order to achieve a holistic depth on the overall shape of the scent. An expensive decision on my part but well worth it for the end result achieved.
*A Note On The Ingredients:
Spanish Moss Hydrosol:
The Medical News Today website reports that Japanese cosmetics researchers from the Noevir Company believe that certain extracts from Spanish moss appear to strengthen the small blood vessels, or capillaries, in skin as well as protect them from damage. In addition, the researchers reported that their studies indicated the Spanish moss extract inhibited the breakdown of skin cells. Together, these results have led many to believe that Spanish moss contains compounds that can prevent the effects of aging on skin.
Apricot Blossom Hydrosol:
Known for it's natural astringent qualities; tightens, firms and tones skin while reducing excess oil. Anti-Inflammatory, meaning it calms the skin and protects against agitation and razor burn. Antibacterial, known for centuries for treating irritating skin conditions. It's also just plain soothing when applied to sensitive, irritated or damaged skin. Like Spanish Moss Hydrosol Apricot Blossom also contains antioxidants that is laboratory studies have shown to fight off pro-agin and skin damaging free radicals.
Aloe vera has been used for a host of purposes since the ancient Egyptians! Called by them the “plant of immortality.” - The Aloe Vera cactus plant that belongs to the Liliaceae family. It grows in dry climates such as those found in parts of Africa and India and has been used medicinally for centuries.
Aloe moisturizes the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion. Aloe vera is used as an aftershave treatment as its healing properties can effectively treat small cuts caused by shaving.
Carrot Seed Extract:
Carrot Seed Extract is an important ingredient in most of the skin care products. It proves capable of adding moisture or antioxidant protection to skin. High in vitamins A and E and beta carotene. It is an anti-inflammatory, soothing chapped and uncomfortable skin. It is thought to bring balance to the moisture in the skin.
Cucumber Seed Oil:
Cucumber Seed Oil possesses a remarkable amount of phytosterols making it a noteworthy ingredient in wet shaving products!
Studies indicate that phytosterols help the skin strengthen its lipid barrier, restoring proper moisture and balance; smoothing the skin’s surface and improving skin elasticity. Phytosterols are also known for their ability to nourish and stimulate the skin cells to encourage regeneration of healthy skin. Cucumber seed oil contains a significant percentage of oleic acid and linoleic acid and can be effective in treating –
- Dry skin
- Sunburned skin
Cucumber Seed Oil contains 14-20% oleic acid and about 60-68% omega 3 linoleic acid. It also has a high amount of tocopherols (Vitamin E) and again, phytosterols as well as skin nourishing fatty acids.
Seaweed Extract is rich in vitamins and minerals and helps to soothe, soften and reduce sensitivity. It also protects and maintains skin’s natural balance. Seaweed Extract has a soothing marine botanical that relieves irritation caused by the environment. It accelerates the natural repair process whilst providing added protection. Seaweed also promotes skin hydration as well as tightening of the skin and has anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties.

Prickly Pear Oil:
