Tombstone Cologne/Aftershave | Made w/ Genuine Lady Banksia Rose From Tombstone, Arizona!
Scent Profile: Gunpowder, Leather, Tobacco, Geranium, Bergamot, Lady Banksia White Rose [Sourced From Tombstone]
When you hear the word Tombstone (Arizona), like a trigger, it immediately conjures up images of Wyatt, Virgil, Morgan Earp, and that rascal Doc Holliday on that fateful day, rugged, ready and cool as cucumbers. Maybe a quote from one of the movies automatically leaves your lips...but what about the scent?
Not only did I do my homework on old time perfuming for this one but I also even went as far as visiting the bustling little mining town of yore to take it all in. [8x!]
What my nose picked up on was the heavy scent of horse saddle and holster leather, gun powder from spent shotguns and pistols of the reenactment, sweet & intoxicating whiffs of opium seeping from the canvas flaps of makeshift opium dens, tobacco scents escaping the mouths of the doomed McLaury & Clanton boys, and the beat up spittoons precariously rocking on the floorboards of the rowdy saloons. Then there are the sweet floral scents of the overly painted faced ladies of the night to consider...and last but not least, the complex, sophisticated aroma of Earl Grey steeping in a tea cup below the hung-over mug of Doc Holliday in his chair at the card table.
Fun Fact: The worlds second oldest and largest Rose bush is in Tombstone! The Lady Banksia Rose, white as snow and full with bloom every April! The scent engulfs the town every spring and has since 1885!
Another Fun Fact, I personally steam distill Lady Banksia Rose hydrosol from flowers from this very bush! That's right folks, our Tombstone aftershave/cologne contains Tombstone in it's very genetic make-up!
Much like a gunfight, each note in the scent profile, like each gunslinger in the shootout, takes its turn and has its way with you. That added menthol feels like cold steel pressed up against your neck. So put some swagger in your shave today with a blast from the past. Tombstone, you ain't no daisy!
