Phoenix Shave Soap - Fresco

Phoenix Shave Soap - Fresco


Scent Profile:

Top Notes: Herbaceous, Eucalyptus, Citrus, Fresh 
Middle Notes: Cardamom, Spicy, Green, Balsam
Bottom Notes: Woody, Patchouli, Mossy & Masculine!


Aromatic Fougèrea derivative of this class (Fougère), that contains additional notes of herbs, spice and/or wood.


Fresco is a fine example of just this, an Aromatic Fougère containing Top Notes of Orange, Galbanum, Bergamot, Lime, Lemon, Lavender and Black Currant; Middle Notes of Rose, Cardamom and Lily-of-the-Valley; Base Notes of Patchouli, Opoponax, Cedar, Oakmoss and Ambergris. Herbaceous, Citrusy and Fresh; Spicy, Green, Mossy, Balsamic and Woody! Truly a beautiful accord to experience/live. As one reviewer said to me in private, 'Wearing Fresco is akin to wearing a classic 80's adventure flick.' 

Fresco really IS the scent of Epic Adventure; Vivid, Lively, Pulse-Pounding, and Explosive! Much like my hormones were at the time I discovered it, but more on that later. It's these very desirable attributes that make it so hard for many to believe that it is actually a forgotten, discontinued classic! No really, I have now been wearing this scent for months to the gym, especially the deodorant, and have had at least 4 different conversations about it by inquiring gym rats. (That's kinda like science.) -- My point is, Fresco, or it's namesake Fresh really resonates with more than a few, young and old...and for a good reason. Fresco Rocks!

Introducing The CK-6 Formula: Fat of the Land

CK-6 is made up of some very Exotic Butters, Oils and Waxes from around the world: Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Jojoba Wax, Bacuri Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Murumuru Butter


A Mystical Trifecta of Slick

Bacuri Butter: is very popular in the north of Brazil, it comes from the seeds of a beloved local fruit with a rich pulp, and flavor.

Bacuri butter has a high absorption rate, due to its high level of tripalmitin (50% to 55%), which penetrates the skin quickly. The high amount of fatty palmitoleic acid (5%), compared to other oils (less than or equal to 0.5 to 1.5%), makes the Bacuri oil a fantastic emollient, and a super moisturizing agent. Think killer post shave feel!

 Capuacu Butter: is a close cousin to the cacao plant, the trees and fruits are similar, however, cupuacu has a richer pulp. Cupuacu butter is naturally softer than cacao, therefore easier to use, and offers more benefits than the cocoa butter.
Cupuacu butter has very high water absorption capacity (Over 200% Greater Than Lanolin)- Read that again. Due to its capacity for water absorption and the ability to obstruct the evaporation of moisture from the skin, Cupuaçu butter just might be one of the best moisturizing ingredients available. 

Murumuru Butter: is a phenomenally slick butter that gives a most excellent skin feel and slip. It is called the "vegetable silicone" for its ability to rapidly replace mineral silicon in the dermis. It comes from the seeds of a palm tree that is very abundant in the wet regions of  the Amazon forest. 
Murumuru Butter is also rich in vitamin A and C and Omega fatty acids 3, 6, and 9. The main fatty acid found in this butter is called Lauric acid (at an astonishing 47%) It also has myristic acid, oleic, palmitic and linoleic acids. When these 3 sisters combine with Kokum, Cocoa, Jojoba & Shea you get some serious Premium, Luxury, Fatty Lather; killer creamy, slick, buttery goodness that possesses Superb Residual Slickness and Earth Shattering Post Shave Feel! You will not even need to use a balm after and good luck keeping your hands off your face all day!
