WestMan Shaving - Nirvana - Aftershave Emulsion Balm - Made in Portugal
Fig, Sandalwood, Cardamom, Carnation, Myrrh, Musk, Cedar
Nirvana features a harmonious blend of Fig and Sandalwood, enriched with a captivating selection of supporting notes. Perfect for gentlemen who appreciate the art of scent and take pride in their grooming ritual. Originally released in June 2022 as a special edition for the facebook group "O Lado Gourmet do Barbear", this fragrance now returns as a new regular collection.
The Fig invokes a sense of natural sweetness and freshness. It was important to make it as close to nature as possible. It does not smell too sweet/ripe or green like a fig leaf. It is more of a happy medium with balanced green and sweet tones. The heart of the fragrance is rich in warm and woody Sandalwood. Then a touch of floral elegance from the Carnation note, the spicy features of Cardamom, the resinous qualities of Myrrh, the subtle animalic facet from Musk and finally, woody and earthy tones of Cedarwood to anchor the scent.
Figs are among the oldest fruits known to man. It is therefore not surprising that they are mentioned in several ancient scriptures. Nonetheless, it is still interesting to see how different religions make more or less important references to Fig (either fruit, leaf or tree). In the Old Testament, Adam and Eve covered their nakedness after eating the forbidden fruit. There is a story in the New Testament where Jesus cursed a barren fig tree. In the Quran, figs are considered one of the six fruits of paradise. But more importantly for our inspiration in choosing the name of this collection, Buddha achieved enlightenment (Nirvana) under a fig tree. Secrets of the world.
