Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Aftershave Cologne - Coconut Bay
Description by Douglas Smythe:
Another classic scent from us that seems to have a cult following. The origin of this scent is a bit foggy, I do believe a few years back a customer asked me to add some coconut to my bay, a tip that didn't take much arm twisting. So a big thanks to him. Then there was the edition of lime, citrusy goodness surfing on the top of it all with a hint of Chamomile. Finally feels like summer now that I find myself "cooking" this one again! Here Comes The Sun!
As with all PAA's unique Aftershave/Colognes you will find nothing but the best ingredients inside every bottle of Coconut Bay: Chamomile Hydrosol, Alum, Aloe Vera, Glycerin and Carrot Extract. Then there is the sex panther of them all, 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.
*As With Any Bay Rum Scent, this may be irritating to sensitive skin or those sensitive to spice oils. ALSO, Contains ZERO Clove Oil.
