Space Nog returns and bay rum fans rejoice!
First off, I am absolutely infatuated with this scent, Rich, Creamy, Spiced, Traditional Egg Nog with a splash of Atomic Age Bay Rum...yeah, that happened. Seriously, this is possibly our most addictive scent to date and I am not even a huge gourmand fan! I'm pretty certain this will make real egg nog jealous. [if you are reading this egg nog, we are coming for you!]
Much like Atomic Pumpkin, blending Egg Nog with Atomic Age Bay Rum seemed like a no brainer. I mean, we all know the best Egg Nog has a splash of spiced rum in it...Santa's Little Helper as dad called it. However, it was not as easy as it sounds.
Admittedly, I created more than a few variations on this blend before I nailed it. The first few versions were too Bay heavy or too Rum heavy. The Nog was present, but just not leading the way - That had to change. What I finally ended up with was truly something magical, smooth and pretty damn nostalgic.
I know many of you have heard me talk about hydrosol in the past and how it is a key part of what sets our aftershaves apart from the rest, Space Nog is no different in its genetic make up.
Many will use purified water in their splashes which is fine, but it adds nothing. Unless that is what you are going for, but it's not how I roll. I am all about subtle ghost notes or grace notes; elements you may not immediately notice but would notice if they were not there...like the lack of an arm rest in the rental car you just picked up, not a big deal, but it could be better. Hydrosols add this other layer and bolster up the depth of the fragrance, and essentially add to the overall experience.
In the case of Space Nog, I chose to distill my my own vanilla hydrosol from Madagascar Vanilla Beans, the best in the world! I don't believe anyone else is doing this especially for what Madagascar Vanilla Bean currently trades at, second to saffron...but it's worth it!
Along with some ratio balancing it was the inclusion of my Vanilla Hydrosol that really took the edge off the top and smoothed out the final variation of this juice. Nothing but the best for my customers...plus I need to wear the stuff too and won't settle for half ass. (There is a do unto others lesson somewhere in that.)
Year Long Staying Power
I should also mention, though Space Nog is a holiday scent, much like CANE, I can see MANY returning to this stuff all year round for the scent is really intoxicating...I mean it!
Happy Holidays & Merry Xmas to All!
