(2023) Happy VD People! hmmm, maybe I should rephrase that. Happy Valentine's Day People! Some of you in the Phoenix Fan Facebook Group may recall our poll a couple months back asking for what our next Doppelgänger scent should be. Well did we ever get flooded with requests! We will have enough ideas for the next ten years for sure! Out of all the scents however, Ombre Leather kept popping up! It wasn't number one, but it was up there!
So rather than make it a "Dopple" 3 years from now, we thought what better way to show our appreciation to the people that pay our bills than deliver them something they love! That said, we decided to shelf our past VD scent offerings in favor of Ombre! NOTE: Chocolate CUBE 2.0 will be available for certain this year! Click Here!
Danaides? Really Doug? And you expect me to pronounce that?
Indeed I do, hee, hee, hee, as advertised, we have always been more than just shaving people! I mean what better way to express the theme of love than with a tip of the hat to Hypermnestra, the Danaid who chose to defy her father and not kill her husband, Lynceus on their wedding night...unlike her other 49 sisters! Thus foiling his plans. A classic greek myth from grade school.
So with that in mind I went to it creating the artwork and if I do say so myself, it came out rather epic! There's a lot going on in it for sure and some visual story telling or clues that relate back to other past & future releases! So keep a keen eye, especially if you score a holographic label! It's like staring into a stargate!
As for the scent, Ombre Leather is considered king of the modern leather fragrances! Think Tuscan Leather with bold and full supportive woody and tobacco colors supporting it. Definitely a scent to be worn all year but I particularly think it works the best in the cooler months...and is Perfect for Valentine's Day!
