Part 2 of our Tang of the Spheres (Odor Universalis) Series

What if extraterrestrial languages appealed to our sense of smell rather than hearing? What if they have been communicating to us all along through our strongest of scents? An advanced race utilizing the advanced of the senses.

Seems more than plausible.

What if we only now find our self on the brink of this new scentsual evolution brought on by a collective shift back to traditional forms of shaving? A wonton palette and a willing suspension of disbelief is all it takes to touchdown on this mysterious green orb that has only recently appeared on the edge of our galaxy...a Vetiver Planet.

Vetiver Planet is Green as it is Dirty. A carefully designed blend, layer upon layer of Vetiver in all its purest forms; Indian Vetiver Absolute - Réunion Vetivert Hydrosol - Haitian Vetiver Essential Oil - Sri Lankan Vetiver Essential Oil and Vetiver Double Distilled Essential Oil.

So Why All The Vetiver?

Vetiver, much like people, differ from place to place. Depending on the conditions it is grown in will greatly shape and alter the aromatics of the roots, where the scent essence is derived from. So much plays a part; geography, soil quality and conditions, altitude, etc...Having so many tones and variations of a essence is most excellent when trying to build a Vetiver Planet!

Know Your Roots

Each bottle of Vetiver Planet contain clippings of the Indian Vetiver Plant, that not only add a thematic, otherworldly visual element, but also in time, a depth to the aftershave through a slow tincturing process, set at a steady rate by the addition of the Vetiver Hydrosol...Alchemy, Ayurveda and Esoterica are strong in this one!

Indian Vetiver Absolute: Unlike the notable sweet top note found in the Indian Vetiver Essential Oil, you will find it muted in the absolute. Instead a bold, cade-like smokiness and choya leatheriness takes shape in its own orbit. You may also pick up a slight citrus coolness that mingles and teases bitter notes of chocolate, decomposing wood, mossy mustiness and deep, dark amber.

Réunion Vetivert Hydrosol: Vetiver was introduced to Reunion Island in the 1800s, Originally distilled by Ferdinand Pévérelly. Vetiver is grown mainly in southern Reunion. Three varieties are grown on the island and this particular hyrdrosol comes from the Java Vetiver strain which carries a slightly smokier aroma.

Organic Haitian Vetiver Essential Oil: Deep, slightly sweet and resinous, with pronounced earth and root notes and light smoky undertones.

Organic Sri Lankan Vetiver Essential Oil: An excellent, full-bodied, deep, rich and smoky, with strong wood and root notes; has the deepest, most complex character of all the Vetiver oils used in this blend.

Organic Vetiver Double Distilled Essential Oil: Exceptionally smooth, sweet, and refined aroma with a very light green top note; smoother than the other Vetiver oils found in Vetiver Planet and without any smoky or harsh notes, yet has a deep, rich, earthy, and tenacious character and an appealing sweet wood quality.

Our Other Choice Ingredients:

As with all our aftershave/colognes we use nothing but the highest quality skinfood. PAA/Crown King aftershaves are known for that great, silky post shave feel while providing all day staying power. You will immediately FEEL THE DIFFERENCE.

Vegetable Glycerin

Vegetable glycerin is derived from plant seed oils like palm, coconut, or soy. Being a Humectant it's easily absorbed into the skin, making active ingredients in our aftershaves easier for the skin to absorb as well. Vegetable glycerin isn't an additive that has no value (like some other sugars); it actually helps your body attract moisture and sop up healthy ingredients. 

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera has been used for a host of purposes since the ancient Egyptians!  Called by them the “plant of immortality.” - The Aloe Vera cactus plant that belongs to the Liliaceae family. It grows in dry climates such as those found in parts of Africa and India and has been used medicinally for centuries.

Aloe moisturizes the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it`s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion. Aloe vera is used as an aftershave treatment as its healing properties can effectively treat small cuts caused by shaving.

Alum

Alum cools, tightens and tones. Also used historically to inhibit bacteria growth and as a cooling astringent. Seals and protects micro cuts on skin.

Hedione 

Although it has long been debated whether humans can actually communicate via pheromones - the chemical signals secreted by animals to help find a mate - Researchers have found that scent of Hedione generates ‘sex-specific activation patterns’ in the nasal tissue which links to the brain. It is the first time that a scent has been known to activate the pheromone receptor VN1R in humans.

“These results constitute compelling evidence that a pheromone effect different from normal olfactory perception indeed exists in humans,” says scent researcher Prof Hanns Hatt fro, Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany.

Hedione (chemical name methyl dihydro-jasmonate) – derived from the Greek word “hedone”, for fun, pleasure, lust – has a pleasant fresh jasmine-magnolia scent and is used in many perfumes.

It is synthesised from the organic compound methyl jasmonate which was discovered in 1957 and which is important in plants for seed germination, root growth, flowering, fruit ripening, and senescence.
