Description

I couldn’t think of a better way to help celebrate the launch of Hegedus Mineral and Fossil Design to social media and web than by tying in wetshaving one of my other hobbies and passions in life. I am a third generation owner of the mineral and fossil shop Hegedus Design. Growing up in the business, I have countless fond memories of spending time with my grandfather both at shows and collecting fossils. This release is a tip of the hat to him, and I hope he's looking down with a smile on his face.

The scent is intended to be reminiscent of a warm spring day collecting fossils with my grandfather as a young boy. He was an old war veteran that walked with a cane (due to his injury from the Korean war) and a pipe in his mouth, everywhere he went. Half and Half was his tobacco of choice. Any time minerals or fossils were involved, he seemed to have some extra pep in his step. He managed some pretty rough terrain despite his injury. We went on many fossil collecting trips together every spring. The rough winters would help to reveal a new layer of material to go through. The scents accompanying us were unmistakable on those days. There was the fresh clean spring air at the forefront, with a touch of floral from the Easter flowers growing nearby. Following that was the smell of wet rocks and earth from the recent rains and melted snow that saturated the earth. Lastly, the aroma of pipe smoke floating through the air from pop's corn cob pipe, full of half and half that seemed to never go empty as he puffed away. I have to say through a handful of test scents and slight modifications, Chad completely nailed it! Every time I take a whiff of the scent it brings me back in time to that exact place. It's astonishing how the sense of smell can transport you to a different world!

Scent notes: tobacco, damp spring earth, fresh air, flowers, and wet stone
