Excerpt From Sun Up Ad (1963)

"Sun Upmanship That’s the name of the game.

George goes around smelling like flowers in bloom. You go around with the manly scent of Sun Up after-shave. YOU get the girl. Gillette didn’t pick flowers to find this new scent. We’re not perfume people. We captured only the manlier, muskier, spicier scents of nature. And we came up with the scent that you wear like a man...like a man who’s one up on the other guy."

["Sorry George, My Grandmother Just Flew In"] 

Sun Down is my take on a very classic, special aftershave splash from the 60's (63-69), Gillette's Sun Up ! I have been working on this scent for almost a year now with much trial and error...mostly error...but finally success, which was well worth the effort!

I really can't say it better than their classic ad, but I'll try.

Some have compared this scent to James Bond and what he'd wear, others relate it to that classic, working man scent! I subscribe to the latter scent description myself, in fact I find it very close to Aqua Velva...at least in the same club. Let me clarify, close to AV at first sniff, but during the course of the day and initial dry down it's own unique character shines through. In short, "Sun Up" was truly a perfect name for the stuff! If the 60’s had a “smelltrack”, there’s no doubt this would be it for the everyday man on the street...and such an interesting time in our history (usa).

I am actually at a loss as to why this was ever discontinued after only a 6 year run. I mean, even the bottle was super cool; shapely with a cool bakelite cap...classy!

Now for the scent:

Talc, Oakmoss, Lemon, Petitgrain, Bergamot, Lavender, Rose, Animalic Musk, Clary Sage, Vetiver & Sandalwood. I have also added a refreshing burst of menthol to the splash giving it that bright, cooling, classic feel!

Sun Up was my Dad's favorite after shave until it was discontinued and he finally couldn't find it anymore. So when I saw that Crown King had an homage version I jumped on it. Although I haven't smelled Sun Up since I was a kid, this scent immediately took me back to those days, so I think they got it right. Thanks for the memories!

Ok, this is it! If you are looking for the ultimate aftershave splash with the best classic scent out there, then you MUST buy this. The day that I received my first bottle, I immediately ordered a second one before they ran out. Outstanding face feel and scent.
