Durban Poison is a pure sativa from a landrace strain originating in Durban, South Africa. This strain has a very distinct citrus yet piney aroma and flavor. Durban Poison has a legendary reputation for its energizing and uplifting effects and thats why we chose it as the inspiration for this fragrance. Once we found the terpene profile for this strain, we went about formulating it into a fragrance that would be an accurate analogue but would also be perfectly wearable to even the highest class event. The fragrance is light, refined and bright. The lemon, grapefruit and bergamot notes on the open are refreshing while the hints of earth, fresh pine needles and parsley keep the scent grounded. Underlying tartness reminscent of rhubarb help to bring out that slightly "skunky" finish that really makes this fragrance shine as not just another citrus scent.

The scent of this soap is reminiscent of days at sea on a large vessel through the Caribbean. Ocean breeze, salt air, oak, leather and dark rum will transport you to a time of pirates and privateers. By far our best seller.

Sandalwood oil has been used for thousands of years and it is a staple in the shaving world. If you don't own at least one sandalwood soap, cream or aftershave, you are missing out one of the most luxurious classic scents made specifically for a man. I have also added a slight hint of woodsmoke to further the masculine undertones of the sandalwood.

So… This is Christmas. This is literally what Christmas smelled like in our house growing up. This is the one fragrance for this Secret Stash drop that we are the most excited about.

A staple in traditional shaving and barbershops, this is THE classic lime fragrance. Non intrusive and light, definitely a great way to start the day off right.
Bay Whisky Lime
Our Original Scent, and still available in our Supermax Pomade, Bay Whisky lime is made from Bay Oil,(Pimenta Racimosa) and Lime essential oils to bring you the closest thing to what those pirates and privateers were using in the west indies in the 1600s. Light, fleeting and fresh, this is a perennial favorite.
Ramos Gin Fizz
Modeled after the famous prohibition cocktail, this scent is all creamsicle and a barely detectable hint of juniper. If you like citrus, cream and a sweet finish, this one will knock your socks off.
Mr. Hyde is dark, brooding; evil. Raw Unrefined Vetiver, Patchouli and Sandalwood create an earthy, heavier feel diametrically opposed to Dr. Jeckyll yet decidedly similar. An almost imperceptible hint of amber helps round this long lasting scent. Animalistic and powerful, Mr. Hyde is the epitome of masculinity without being overbearing.
Besides the obvious ties to Edgar Allan Poe, the theme here is blood and wood. The fragrance for this exclusive set was custom blended and allowed to mature. Dragonsblood imparts a familiar powdery incense note and dominates the initial exposure to the scent. Oud(agar/aloeswood) brings a dark, almost dank feeling to the overall fragrance here as subtler notes of teak, cedar and sandalwood balance out the wood accord, almost strangely.

Made with real oils of Frankincense and Myrhh, this smells exactly like a Catholic church on a sunday morning. If you like resinous incense fragrances, this is the one for you.
Scarab is a polarizing scent. Red Egyptian musk, from the Ambrette plant and the only musk derived from a grain, is said to be the worlds most alluring aphrodisiac. Powerful and long lasting, fragrant musk is mixed with heartwoods and a touch of rose to tame the sometimes overwhelming musk notes. Perfectly balanced for every day wear, this is a head turner. Originally formulated as a custom scent, friends who have gotten a chance to smell it have been asking us to produce it.
Is this the greatest Nag Champa based fragrance ever made? We think so. A mix of the classic incense notes, Frangipani (Plumeria) and Sandalwood, we also added a healthy dose of West Indian Vanilla which emulates, what we think is the greatest incense ever produced; Sai Baba SuperHit. Sweet and smooth is probably the best way to describe it and every note in this fragrance tends to be a clinger, so be prepared for people to ask about it when you use this soap.
From our Christmas Cookies project, Sugar Cookie smells just like it sounds, those little pretzel shaped cookies in the blue tin. This is a crowd favorite.
