Description:

This aftershave/cologne is a very special tribute to a good pal of mine, Fire Marshal John Perry. I'm actually not sure if Tribute is the right word, maybe Signature or maybe Collaboration even? Regardless, it's near and dear to me and I feel very grateful for the opportunity. I might also mention that I believe this to be some of my best blending work to date! (but you decide)

Not only was the name John's idea he was also very instrumental in shaping the scent profile, right down to a last minute tweak on the amount of apricot in the soap. (The aftershave was fine.)

John and I have been kicking around the idea of a special soap for a long time and finally the planets seemed to align. Truth be told this particular project has probably been in the works for the last 6 months and the scent was one of the hardest I have ever put together...but well worth it.

John is a huge fan of both Dapper Doc and my Sandalwood, for awhile he's been on me to combine the two, however, that's not what happened, lol. He's also a huge fan of Harvest Moon and knew he wanted elements of all 3 in our scent profile. Though the notion seems rather abstract I had a good idea what John was going for, so I went to work pushing and pulling. With the determination of a method actor who wants to understand the character he is to play I delved into the part...no shortcuts were taken.

All kidding aside, this soap was made to honor John and all the other men and women who are first on the scene and have to see through the smoke, flame and confusion. Those who have to make split second decisions that could easily mean the difference between life or death for them or their crew...kudos to you fine folk for the sacrifices you make to keep the rest of us safe.

$2 from each sale of the soap and splash will go to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. I really wanted to take advantage of the theme of this soap and use it to build some awareness while raising some funds for our everyday super heroes, it's truly the least we could do. I hope this will also inspire others to seek out this organization and make a donation from time to time.

What does it mean you ask? Well, we all have our own definition but for me it is: a rush, a job to do, decisions to make, a struggle to play through, a challenge, and a battle to be fought and won. We as firefighters live for those words, defeat is NEVER an option.

First Due means You are one of the privileged few to see and assess the fight ahead. The first one to beat the door in. The first one to walk into the dragons den and slay it. The first one to know that the beast won't die easily. The first one to feel the triumph when all are safe and the job is done. This is First Due."
