CANE Artisan Shave Soap & Aftershave Cologne | A Seasonal Bundle Deal | Winter Fougere
Nothing says Merry Christmas like our holiday classic, CANE!
Scent Profile: Peppermint, Cornmint, Rose, Talc, Bergamot, Oakmoss, Vetiver!
It is year 6 folks for one of our all time, top holiday favorites, loved by pretty much everyone; men, women, elves, reindeer...and the toast of the town on the Island of Broken Toys! You can say it's a real crowd pleaser for sure.
More Than Just Peppermint
With a name like CANE it's easy to assume this is straight up peppermint, but it's actually not! Granted, we did turn the peppermint all the way up but it's the dry down that is really special and where it truly begins to take shape; Cornmint, Rose, Talc, Bergamot, Oakmoss and a touch of Vetiver! If I were to classify it I would call it a crisp, winter fougère.
Cornmint not only adds to an already minty top note, but also lends a mild/light menthol kiss! Fresh, Brisk and Festive.
Matured/Aged 1 Year
Those of you who are no stranger to Phoenix Shaving know that since year 2 we have always "steeped" our CANE splashes for one year, so this year is no different...but man do I always forget this before I pry open the vat! My eyes not only teared up with joy and nostalgia but also with that pure, potent burst of Christmas...undiluted. Lucky for you I still have to add the Peppermint Hydrosol to the blend to balance it out and cut a little of that wintery edge.
I should also add, the Peppermint Hydrosol was freshly made (distilled) by yours truly only two days ago! Nothing but the best for our loyal friends and customers. Honestly, this time of year is a lot of fun for us, I mean, it's still crazy busy but we make it fun. We approach our holiday offerings as grandma approaches her Christmas Cookies...minus the muumuu. (not that I don't own one)
Aside from pure peppermint & cornmint essential oils, you will also find Peppermint Hydrosol, Rose Water, Glycerin, Hedione, Carrot Seed Extract, and Aloe Vera in this festive blend of winter bliss!
Rose Water: Rose water can be beneficial to all skin types, it can help sooth and cool sensitive and irritated skin, balance and cleanse oily skin, rejuvenate, soften and tone mature skin, and add glow to the normal skin. Rose water is filled with anti-oxidants and various vitamins, therefore, it can help nourish the skin.
Carrot Extract: Carrot Extract is high in vitamins A and E and beta carotene. It helps to soothe chapped and uncomfortable skin. It is believed to bring balance and moisture to the skin.
Although it has long been debated whether humans can actually communicate via pheromones - the chemical signals secreted by animals to help find a mate - Researchers have found that scent of Hedione generates ‘sex-specific activation patterns’ in the nasal tissue which links to the brain. It is the first time that a scent has been known to activate the pheromone receptor VN1R in humans.
“These results constitute compelling evidence that a pheromone effect different from normal olfactory perception indeed exists in humans,” says scent researcher Prof Hanns Hatt fro, Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany.
Hedione (chemical name methyl dihydro-jasmonate) – derived from the Greek word “hedone”, for fun, pleasure, lust – has a pleasant fresh jasmine-magnolia scent and is used in many perfumes.
It is synthesised from the organic compound methyl jasmonate which was discovered in 1957 and which is important in plants for seed germination, root growth, flowering, fruit ripening, and senescence.
