Phoenix Shave Soap - Tombstone
When you hear the word Tombstone (Arizona), like a trigger, it immediately conjures up images of Wyatt, Virgil, Morgan Earp, and that rascal Doc Holliday on that fateful day, rugged, ready and cool as cucumbers. Maybe a quote from one of the movies automatically leaves your lips...but what about the scent? On the ground research was clearly needed.
What my nose picked up on was the heavy scent of horse saddle and holster leather, gun powder from spent shotguns and pistols of the reenactment, sweet & intoxicating whiffs of opium seeping from the canvas flaps of makeshift opium dens, tobacco scents escaping the mouths of the doomed Clanton boys, and the beat up spittoons precariously rocking on the floorboards of the rowdy saloons. Then there are the sweet floral scents of the overly painted faced ladies of the night to consider...and last but not least, the complex, sophisticated aroma of Earl Grey steeping in a tea cup below the hung-over mug of Doc Holliday in his chair at the card table.
