For those of you that missed it, Planet 9 is the rebirth of Neroli...hmmm, that sounds kind of vague, no? Let me explain.

Neroli is an essential oil & absolute produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium subsp. amara or Bigaradia).

It is a very unique scent with such a rich history when it comes to perfuming, you could say it's a perfuming rockstar. Not only is it one of the most used notes in the biz, it was also the shining star of the world's first Eau De Cologne over 300 years ago!

Historically Known For:

• Exotic, Classic Masculine Scent 

• Aphrodisiac Effect (you're welcome) 

• A Calming, Relaxing Effect on Mind

• Antimicrobial & Anti-fungal Properties

A Soothing Natural Anti-inflammatory

Aphrodisiac Effect (again, you're welcome)

[and this is just a few things this stuff is known for!]

"But what exactly is the scent profile Doug?"

Great question...

Planet 9 is instantly pungent, energizing and intoxicating, containing delicate floral notes with a whiff of citrus, honey and green/spicy facets. Comforting yet exotic with a slight element of mystery. Think Temple of Doom type "mystery" vibe.

We originally put out Neroli 5 years back and immediately a cult following grew around it! Our Neroli Deodorant really put us on the natural deodorant map too with much fanfare!

But then as we grew and introduced more scents it seemed to have fallen off the radar. I admit it was odd...and though it broke our hearts, we pulled it due to dropping sales.

"I am fortunate enough to have had a sneak preview of Planet 9, and I must say....it is out of this world! A very pleasant and surrounding scent that titilates the senses, and soothes the savage #6 setting on your adjustable! Can't wait to get an entire bottle of this fantastic splash!" 
~Roberto Myers

But I digress...So up till recently, Fran and I had no idea our Neroli was still being talked about in a big way, sought after even!

This was partly because the buzz was in forums we are not a part of or don't have the time to participate in. If it had not been for our recent AMA on the Damn Fine Shave Forum we would of still been ignorant of the demand...THIS really put a smile on our faces, we could bring our baby back...and better than ever!

After perfuming for more than 5 years now, it would be interesting and fun to go back to one of our earlier scents and apply some of our experience and skill we've since attained.

So I immediately set to work on revisiting our Neroli and pulled out all the stops when it came to redefining the scent. If you are a fan of Fran's past Neroli, Planet 9 is that x 10!

The scent you fell in love with in 2012 is still intact, but I have given it much more depth, shape and dimension. I really tweaked it and brought more of the subtle, natural characteristics of Neroli to the mix...I found it's soul!

(man, that sounds so bloody pretentious...I need to find a better way to say that...but until then, it's clear I'm a dork and I apologize.)

This is probably my favorite single note scent, it's pungent, tart, floral, spicy, and almost bitter. Even though it was mentioned somewhat jokingly, I don't think they were wrong to think they captured the soul of neroli here, they definitely bring out all of it's best characteristics. The soap itself is fantastic as are all PAA and crown king soaps, very easy to lather, great slickents, with a big coushiony thick lather and great post shave feel. It's also a fairly strong scented soap, around a 7.5 for me, which is a big plus in my book. If you're a fan of neroli you'll absolutely love this stuff.

In my opinion, perfumers can really mess up Neroli. For some reason, many perfumers like to match this scent with sweet elements and emphasize its tartness. I see this as a huge misstep as it either makes the accord overly saccharine, and thus, too feminine; or worse, too antiseptic, making it smell like bathroom deodorizer, or air spray.
Thank goodness this isn't like the typical Neroli at all. Instead, Crown King brought out Neroli's natural mild spice (you might say native bitterness) and musk. This renders it not just palatable, but masculine and enjoyable! Instead of just existing at the happy intersection of citrus and floral, we get a Neroli with the added complexity of masculine musk and a hint of spiciness!
To my nose, this scent conjures spring and flowering fruit trees. It balances this freshness with that orangey spiciness. Planet 9 is approachable because the spicy element isn't overly emphasized.
I don't know the source of the musky quality I'm picking up in Planet 9, but I love it! The entire accord conjures in my mind an Italian-style colonia, albeit perhaps a bit more forward than some of those mild treatments. It smells orangey and fresh; but masculine. It's no mere citrus. Absolutely recommended!
