For those of you who grew up grinding, kick flipp'n and busting 50/50s, This one's for you!  

To my skater brethren, you all know that classic skate shop scent that I'm going for here, consciously or subconsciously. It's really tough to put into words what's going on exactly or where it's actually permeating from; new decks, bearing lube, polyurethane, wheels, the combination of it all in one small room? This whole concept began as another challenge from a friend,

"How about a...Skate Shop?" he asked

"Gee, that's kinda random."I absently answered not taking into account he stood before me with skateboard in hand.

"Right."

I got to it! 

it's truly a unique scent and I believe I have captured it! Whether you skated or not I believe all will agree this is a really, bodacious, wondrous scent that is most other worldly and truly enjoyable!

Sk-8 Shop is a rather epic blend of exotic, high quality wood essential oils, florals, Rose & Beeswax Absolutes and REAL MANUKA HONEY, The Miracle Honey (read more below on Manuka Honey)! I have been maturing Sk-8 Shop for over 3 months and like a fine wine, the scent is superb, long lasting and full. Skate On!

Notes: Manuka Oil, Tamanu Oil, Zucchini Blossom, Capaiba Balsam, Rosewood, Rose Absolute, Juniper, Manuka Honey, Beeswax Absolute & Lavender. Lastly Hedione!

Hedione?

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.

Omg why did I not get this aftershave sooner! Guys get it while you still can!!!! this AS stays with you longer than any paa I own I never was a skater so I can't say I smell a sk-8 shop in this AS but I can say the scent smells like buying buying a brand new pair of vans while getting that new shoe smell with the mix of walking into a mall shop with the smell of new products in the air it's soooo intoxicating the combination of beeswax and honey blend soooo good 5 stars all day everyday !!!!! Reminds me of being in a mall

This doesn't remind me of a skate shop as it reminds me most of the experience of buying a new board- unwrapping the plastic, smelling the fresh wood, slapping on your old truck/wheel setup, lubing up the bearings, and taking a cruise down the streets of Oahu- breathing in the florals as you cruise on by. More specifically, you get the first hints of bearing lubricant and a lasting scent of the Manuka honey lingering throughout the day. As with all PAA aftershaves/colognes, the moisturizing properties are top notch, not to mention the addition of alum is pure genius. This is a scent of nostalgia for me and a pretty darn good one at that.
