Tombstone Cologne/Aftershave - Contains Menthol
Scent Profile: Gunpowder, Leather, Tobacco, Geranium, Bergamot, White Rose
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 but I also made some innovations adding Menthol and Glycerin to balance it all out in the realm of sensation upon freshly shaven skin. I even went as far as visiting the bustling little mining town of yore to take it all in.

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 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!
Much like a gunfight, each note in the scent profile, like each gunslinger, takes its turn and has its way with you. The added menthol feels like cold steel pressed up against your neck and the alum leaves your skin feeling fresh and toned, while the glycerin adds a new kind of moisture one doesn't often get from traditional alcohol based aftershaves. So put some swagger in your shave today with a blast from the past. Tombstone, you ain't no daisy!
