Yuzu/Rose/Patchouli Post-Shave Toner
There is a lot to be said for the beauty of simplicity. Especially in shaving. Many of the so-called advancements over time tried to improve something that did not need improving. We see the beauty in slow shaving: taking more time to not only do it better, but do it by the dint of your own, personal skill.
The same can sometimes be said for scent, or any type of art. It can be impressive to blend a bunch of different and interesting elements. But often the most interesting works take sparse, solitary elements and work fastidiously to blend them to perfection.
Henry Shaw is responsible for Tower Grove Park and the Missouri Botanical Garden in Saint Louis. In that garden, flowers and plants from the Far East coexist to species native to the Saint Louis area. In this scent, reflective of Shaw's oasis in South City, the uniquely distinct smell of yuzu citrus, enveloping the unmistakably recognizable smell of rose and the dry, woody scent of patchouli come together so all three work together in unison to create something greater than the sum of their parts.
