Somewhere lurking in the garden of your memory banks at dusk, dangling in that perfumed summer breeze of your youth...you will catch a whiff of honeysuckle long before you see it; Heady and nectarous, a little like jasmine tinged with vanilla. You know this scent well and the memories it spawns and will spawn with every shave to come...this. is. Time. Travel!

Excerpt from 2019's Original Re-release: Fans of our original Honeysuckle will truly enjoy our latest variation on this Phoenix Shaving cult classic! Fran and I took a long, hard look at the original recipe and noticed some room for improvement, so improve we did! Son of Honeysuckle tackles the more sophisticated side of the Japanese Honeysuckle Flower this year; a bolder, deeper, moodier expression of the true soul of the blossom.

Using a blend of both Japanese Honeysuckle Hydrosol, Calendula Hydrosol, and Benzoin Resin, I was really able to add more body to the profile of the accord while not getting in the way of the original notes. This pushing and pulling of the scent made a difference in how the fragrance develops during the course of the day. Son of Honeysuckle comes to life during the dry down. Fans will be astounded.

Keeping it thematic and equally beneficial, I also chose to include Honeysuckle Extract & Pure Calendula Oil as skin food in the aftershave/cologne!
Honeysuckle Extract: Rich in flavonoids and saponins, which are sources of antioxidants and protect the skin against free radicals that can contribute to skin damage and signs of aging.
Calendula Oil: A natural oil extracted from marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis). It's often used as a complementary or alternative treatment. Calendula oil has many beneficial properties that can help soothe, protect, and rescue dry, puffy, irritated skin. Possibly the most obvious choice for adding some magic to an aftershave!

Lastly, there are my usual skin food superstars, Aloe Vera & Vegetable Glycerin finishing the job! Happy Spring!!!!
