Come sit down next to the campfire as old Doug here shares with you a tale of righteousness and woe. How's that for drama?
Ok maybe that was a little too much but what I will say is, Tokyo Rose is a Phoenix Shaving classic and originally the official scent for The Big Shave West 3! So popular it was that day that it sold out within the first 2 hours of the event! (that didn't go over too well at the time but we swore to make up for it with a public release!)
The scent was inspired by Pasadena, original home to the first 3 Big Shave events; Roses in homage to the Rose Bowl and Cherry in tribute to the Pasadena Cherry Blossom Festival (which happens during the same time as our event each year.)! So through these two celebrations the scent created itself, with a little help from me. It's always magical when an accord comes together so effortlessly!
As you may have noticed above, Tokyo Rose is much more than those two harmonious notes however; Ambergris (vegan), Sandalwood, Oud, Amyris & Cardamom, and though supporting notes, they play a huge, collective part in the success of the fragrance. Both spicy and masculine with a subtle undertone of sensual playfulness in an almost Cherry Coke type heart note! Sounds amazing right?
I said it then and I'll say it now again, Tokyo Rose is Truly an American Classic, as classic as denim and white cotton t-shirts any day! A melting pot and marriage of notes like nothing else before or since, and a must have for every shave den across the land!
If an aftershave balm and alcohol based splash were to have a baby, our Star Jelly Aftershave Formula would be their love child. Not to be confused with an alcohol free balm, meaning; this stuff still contains alcohol and a kiss of menthol to give you that classic splash feel at first. Then there is that familiar cool down we all know and love...but something more is going on, something cosmic!
Unlike traditional balms, our Star Jelly absorbs rapidly into freshly shaven skin without any greasy, heavy feeling build up! Star Jelly leaves your skin moisturized and silky. A refreshing, alternative that you instantly will fall in love with!
Allantoin: a naturally ocurring nitrogenous compound used as a skin conditioning agent. It can be derived from animals, however the allantoin we use is derived from plants.
Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides: from coconut oil and glycerin, it’s considered an excellent emollient. It’s included in cosmetics due to its mix of fatty acids that skin can use to resist moisture loss. This ingredient’s value for skin is made greater by the fact that it’s considered gentle.
Vegetable Glycerine: is derived from soy and is used in cosmetics and body care products to assist in retaining moisture. It is invaluable as a natural source ingredient with emollient like properties which can soften the skin.
