The Wow Signal 2020 Argan Oil Body Soap | A Phoenix Shaving Classic, Original Scent!
The Wow Signal Returns!
Scent Profile 2020: Osmanthus, Tobacco, Labdanum, Bourbon, Agarwood, and Benzoin Resin.
This my friends is a Phoenix Shaving classic! Ever since we discontinued The Wow Signal the steady write in campaign began from its cult following! This could not be ignored any longer, something had to be done! That something was Fran & I revisiting this fragrance, which is always nice to do.
Our Original Scent was mainly Osmanthus, a heady, out of this world floral. It was lightly grounded with just a kiss of labdanum and Copaiba Balsam. I loved it back then but going back and looking at it again we felt like it just wasn't finished or rather, not done evolving. So with that in mind we decided to build up the foundation more, something to tether this Space Balloon of a scent to, really fatten it up.
Enter Tobacco, Oud, Bourbon, Benzoin and a little more Labdanum
Yup, that was just what the doctor ordered. Often when you add, you must also take away, and that too is what we did. Copaiba Balsam was replaced with Oud. It was a tough call but in the end I think it was the better, rounder choice. Then came the Bourbon. Why Bourbon you may ask...because pappy is currently stuck in the house and it just made sense. In short, sometimes bourbon just makes sense. :)
Kidding aside, I really love what the bourbon does to the shape of this fragrance, especially in combination with the woody notes.
If you enjoyed the previous rendition, I believe you will really appreciate The Wow Signal 2020. I truly think you too will agree this tweak was much needed. If this accord was just a signal before, we've now added some definite substance to it!
I also thought I should keep the old write up intact too, for posterity, no? So here we now go back in Phoenix Shaving time! I also left up some of the old photos too for your viewing pleasure! I fondly remember taking these in Roswell, New Mexico while visiting the UFO Museum. I love my job.
