Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements - Immortal Peach - Aftershave Cologne
Description from PAA:
All Hail The Return of Immortal Peach!
Scent Profile: Close your eyes now and imagine the shiny, golden, juice-dripping slices of a ripen peach! Our most recent version of this classic captures just that and then some; beautifully rounded, sparkling, and even more invigorating than our previous renditions.
New & Improved? [From 2019]
After 6 years of Immortal Peach I decided, as I do, to take another hard look at the scent composition. I chose to rework it, apply any new knowledge gleaned over the years and shoot to make it, well...better!
This time around I figured I would not only source a better, purer peach fragrance but also use a Peach Lactone, Aldehyde C14! My oh my what a whole new level of depth did this "juice" add! That said, Immortal Peach 2019 is really something magical!
The Artwork, The Color
Man, have we had some fun with this one over the years and this year ain't no different! For 2019 I wanted to emphasize the shape, size and boldness of the scent and I think we succeeded in that, no?
Aside from the label, the art extends past that into the actual hue of color I chose to add to the splash using natural red sandalwood (red) and annatto seeds (yellow)! (Fear not, red sandalwood and annatto is scentless.) There was a bit of trial and error in this process trying to really nail a peach color but I believe we pulled it off quite well! You know me, I can never just stop at the scent!
As with all PAA's unique Aftershave/Colognes you will find nothing but the best ingredients inside every bottle of Immortal Peach: Chamomile Hydrosol, Aloe Vera, Glycerin, Carrot Extract. Then there is the sex panther of them all, Hedione!
Note on our label: The name; a double salute to the Canned Peach and The Peaches of The Immortals. The Scent: Simply put, it evokes Summer to this here artisan!
What is Hedione?
Although it has long been debated whether humans can actually communicate via pheromones - the chemical signals secreted by animals to help find a mate - Researchers have found that scent of Hedione generates ‘sex-specific activation patterns’ in the nasal tissue which links to the brain. It is the first time that a scent has been known to activate the pheromone receptor VN1R in humans.
“These results constitute compelling evidence that a pheromone effect different from normal olfactory perception indeed exists in humans,” says scent researcher Prof Hanns Hatt fro, Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany.
Hedione (chemical name methyl dihydro-jasmonate) – derived from the Greek word “hedone”, for fun, pleasure, lust – has a pleasant fresh jasmine-magnolia scent and is used in many perfumes.
It is synthesised from the organic compound methyl jasmonate which was discovered in 1957 and which is important in plants for seed germination, root growth, flowering, fruit ripening, and senescence.
As mentioned and as you can probably assume, this soap is SEASONAL, not Limited Edition. It will be available till the end of August!
