Lime Ginger Tea Tree Aftershave/Cologne - Mentholated (Liquid Silk, Tea Tree Oil, Seaweed Extract and More!)
What could be more refreshing and exhilarating than Lime, Ginger and Tea Tree Oil...aside from the log ride at 6 Flags...?
All kidding aside, this scent was brought to you by very popular demand and kinda out of left field. You see, we originally created our first shampoo/conditioner bar in this scent and didn't think anything of it. It was really just a test product that we never expected to catch on...but it did, in a big way.
Our Old Tyme Lime Ginger Tea Tree shampoo/conditioner bars are our number one selling shampoo bars and I find that odd. Not because they don't get the job done, because they do and more. The tea tree adds a nice tingle and medicinal quality to the lather and the ginger and lime really wake you up with a zing! But it's shampoo and that's it, no matching cologne, shave soap, etc...just a shampoo puck. After the success of this puck I started creating Shampoo/Conditioner bars to match all our most popular scented lines and though they sell well the Lime Ginger Tea Tree kills it when it comes to sales.....I'm still baffled.
The emails and PMs have been off the hook when it comes to people wanting a matching shave soap, deodorant and aftershave! Being known for listening to "the people" we are very excited to spring this one on the masses!
What's it smell like?
To my nose and delight it is not too heavy in any of the key notes but perfectly balanced, a vined wall of scent if you will. Very reminiscent of a end of summer garden or cart at the farmers market, green. The scent is vibrant and vital, packed with energy and green light. A very, very refreshing scent that holds onto summer while rolling a wheel barrow into fall.
I chose to add a slight burst of menthol to represent the colder months approaching and in combination with the tea tree oil this splash will make you feel alive!

The scent begins with a bright, fresh lime smack in the jaw, then the clean spicy ginger shows up while the tea tree calms and soothes the skin. I never got a medicinal scent from it at all - only lime, ginger and other green notes I cannot identify.
The skin care is on par with the rest of PAA cologne/aftershaves, with the tea tree providing an upgrade in terms of less redness for me. I can't isolate the benefits of the other ingredients, but it all adds up to a great feeling on my face.
I am going to have to get the matching soap at some point.
