Casablanca Long Lasting Aftershave/Cologne - The Shaving Shop Signature Scent: w/ Hedione
Casablanca, to quote Con Kazantzidas, is "Filthy". You must hear this word spoken in an Aussie accent to truly "get it". Similar in effect to how James Brown uses the word "Bad", if you will. Casablanca is classic man, classic Bogart, Classic, Exotic, Black and White, Smokey, a bottle of gin by yourself romantic...ahhhh Ingrid Bergman...sigh. We'll always have Casablanca.
I created this scent especially for my good friend Peter "Charky" Charkalis, owner of The Shaving Shop Online Store and popular wet shaving "Youtuber". Peter had been going on and on forever about this "Filthy/Dirty" scent for months before finally something clicked and he had my attention.
"Filthy...ahhhh, now i get it!"
Casablanca is a very sophisticated scent, deep, complicated, poetic even. The notes are comprised of Cavendish, Arabian Rose, Smoke, Saffron, Tobacco Absolute, Honey, and Rose Absolute. You will surely be whisked away to another time and place after one splash of this juice!

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.
