Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Aftershave Cologne - ATG
Description by Douglas Smythe:
Originally Prickly Pear ATG was just a classic, Western Barbershop scented Pre-Shave Soap, and what a pre-shave soap it was and still is! Not only did it change many a persons mind about the usefulness of using a pre-shave but the scent really turned some heads too! I knew eventually we would release a matching soap and aftershave, just didn't know when. That is, until the emails began!
You begged for it, you got it! (Now what is it?)
Sweet Orange Essential Oil, a hint of Rose, Benzoin Resin, Sandalwood, Desert Brush, Prickly Pear Oil; both Dry, Woody and Musky...what I can only describe as straight shoot'n masculine, Western Barbershop Scent. As with any classic splash I thought a light menthol tingle and some *Hedione should be included!
As with all our Phoenix & Crown King Aftershave/Colognes you will find nothing but the best ingredients inside each bottle! Quality oils, Frag and Resins are used to last all day and sometimes into the next. Then there is the other face saving, natural ingredients that will give your skin that silky, moisturized feel: Aloe Vera, Vegetable Glycerin, Prickly Pear Oil, Alum and Rose Water!
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.
