Holy Cow, it's year 3....BAM! That's right folks, our humble little traditional shave gathering has made it to it's 3rd year, who would have thunk? Tokyo Rose is an instant classic, if you ask me.

From the program

This years Official Shave Soap & Splash of The Big Shave West is fittingly titled, Tokyo Rose! Maybe "Fittingly" is the wrong word? I really wanted something to tie in with this years 1940's pinup vibe and the geography, Pasadena. I also wanted something mysterious to tie into as a character in the Phoenix Universe I have been creating over the last few years. 

It's true, for those of you not paying attention, it's always been more than just shaving here at PAA. Each label tells a story or part of a story, each ad released on social media adds to the story with it's imagery, even our sales pages have become small novellas (check out AGHARTA for an extreme example). I didn't want this special soap to exist outside the ongoing saga like last years did...until I redesigned the labels after the fact! 
The character of Tokyo Rose is part historical and part fiction in the tale I am weaving. The use of Rose is clearly a tribute to Pasadena and it's history and Cherry for the cherry blossoms of Japan and the origin of this mysterious lethal siren(s). I liked the name Tokyo Rose because it reminded me of a pinup girl or fighter plane art...and then there was the actual real tie in with WWII. This was totally the feel I was going for and I believe I pulled off...you be the judge.
All this said, stay tuned for Tokyo Rose to appear in future Shaver Mysteries and Trilogies to come from Phoenix Shaving!
Scent Notes: Rose, Cherry, Ambergris, Sandalwood, Oud, Amyris & Cardamom.  The overall accord is almost reminiscent of cherry coke, another All-American Classic!

Smell each individual scent oil and gain a new appreciation for the delicate art of scent blending!
