Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Shaving Soap - Agharta
Description by Douglas Smythe:
This has been a long time coming, AGHARTA. The final installment of our recent Trilogy and what an adventure it's been. For those that follow what we do here, you know PAA is more than about just shaving, but about an experience. Maybe a shave happening in our own unique PAA universe or your own shave realm/dreamscape pieced together by stimulating all the senses. I hope that opening up a new jar of our suds or aftershave is like walking into a movie theater as the lights dim, or discovering lost treasure, or listening to a vinyl record and following along with the liner notes...I know it is for me!
Soapmaking for me doesn't just end when the soap is cured. There's the story, the label design, the photos and artwork chosen to tell the tale, the research, the scent research and how they work with each other, the dry erase board, the clippings, sometimes even the travel. (Remember I'm the guy who drove to Roswell, New Mexico just to release a soap!)
First and foremost, for those who just want the straight notes of AGHARTA, behold: Talc, Ambergris, Amyris, French Vanilla Bean, Japanese Sandalwood, Cedar and Oak Moss.
