  • Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Aftershave - Otra

    Otra is built on a fougere base that I constructed from the ground up, note for note and drop by drop. I could have just stopped there but I chose to go further and build on top of this very green foundation, imagining it to be the mossy green wrappings around the riverbed. Next comes the sandalwood and rosewood, scents I imagine the trees that populate the forest to be emitting. I sprinkled the forest bed with white clover and watched it shoot to life, full & four leafed! Then the river itself, reeds and water plants were created with the addition of white sage hydrosol, rose water, and organic seaweed extract, not overpowering but in the background, you wouldn't notice it sitting on the banks but you would if it was absent. Lastly our star player, Centaurea Cyanus. 

    The stage having been set, I added the corn flower...would it work or was it another let down? Dear gods did it work! There was something very familiar about this scent, a definite family resemblance with Al Fin. This could be attributed to the light motif running through both, White Clover...but I prefer to think it magic. Judge for yourself.

    I find Otra to be the perfect scent on a hot summer night, very sensual and stimulating...yet puts me at peace. I also find Otra Shaving Soap to compliment Al Fin Aftershave wonderfully! I am very excited to finally offer a soap that works "genetically" with Al Fin...maybe I can rest now? Nah....

    As with all PAA's unique Aftershave/Colognes you will find nothing but the best ingredients inside every bottle of Otra: White Sage Hydrosol*, Rose Water*, Organic Seaweed Extract* (Seaweed extract is useful for oily skin, clarifies skin and increases hydration.), Alum (tones, refreshes skin and antimicrobial), Aloe Vera (healing, moisturizing,anti fungal & antibacterial), and my favorite humectant, Glycerin (moisturizer and smoother).

    Organic Seaweed Extract contains all major and minor plant nutrients and all trace elements. 

    White Sage HydrosolWoodsy, dry, herbal.... A natural balancer, deodorizer, and cleanser, sage hydrosol has potential for many uses. Mildly astringent, this antioxidant hydrosol is considered an anti-aging skin treatment, and is also a wonderful hair and scalp conditioner and treatment

    Rose Water:Rose water can be beneficial to all skin types, it can help sooth and cool sensitive and irritated skin, balance and cleanse oily skin, rejuvenate, soften and tone mature skin, revitalize and add glow to the normal skin. Rose water is filled with anti-oxidants and various vitamins, therefore, it can help prevent the signs of ageing and nourish the skin.
    Rose water also has natural antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

    Aloe Vera: Aloe vera has been used for a host of purposes since the ancient Egyptians called it the “plant of immortality.” Since then, its uses have become more targeted and medicinal. Aloe vera is a 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 leaves secrete a clear gel that when broken off from the rest of the plant that can be applied topically to heal wounds and soothe skin.
