Description

It's true folks, this is more than a mere label change! I have actually gone back into the "code" and made a much needed tweak that I should have done a long time ago! (and what a tweak it was!)

As you can imagine, scent is REALLY important to me, and like so many humans, I hate to leave things unresolved...so I revisited Alt-Eleven.

If you don't know, Alt-Eleven is my tribute to the timeless classic, Alt~Innsbruck. I worked long and hard on that scent for years and was finally satisfied with my then, results...at least for the aftershave/cologne, but the soap was a different story - Something was missing.

Alt~Innsbruck is known for two things, Virginia Tobacco Flower & Menthol, the perfect alchemical marriage. I mean, that initial blast from the atomizer you get truly defines this epic frag to me and most. But I totally left out the menthol in my soap formula...duh. It took me years, and I don't know why, for it finally dawn on me!

So now, without a doubt, I can say Alt-Eleven truly tips the hat to that iconic blend...with a little added Phoenix Shaving sparkle thrown in...and just in time for summer!

You will flip for that light menthol kick and man, that Virginia tobacco flower is really something else!

The Scent
´╗┐Virginia Tobacco Flower: Nicotiana Alata. Whimsical yet manly, rugged and genteel at the same time. I need to emphasize, this is not a cured tobacco scent of cigar or pipe but the flower itself, a completely unique scent or the true signature, unadulterated scent of the plant, natures aromatic profile of Nicotiana Tabacum. Note: I did also add tobacco absolute to the blend in order to achieve a holistic depth on the overall shape of the scent. An expensive decision on my part but well worth it for the end result achieved.
