Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements - Planet Phoenix

Perfumed by:
Douglas Smythe

Scent Notes: Neroli, Bergamot, Mandarin, Frangipani, Labdanum, Oud

This was only available as a Limited Edition Release for 1 day for the Facebook Members of PAA. It originally was only a scent made for a small shaving soap that was included for free with a shatterproof travel scuttle, but some members of the Facebook group just wouldn't let it go as just a shaving soap. So it was given a 1 day release. I am a member of that groups and never had smelled the soap and didn't know what the fuss was about. When the 1 day drop happened I blind bought the aftershave/cologne thinking, "what the hell?". What the hell indeed. This should be a full release. Unfortunately, it's back in the ether and unavailable. PAA is a company that apparently loves to tease it's cult fan following with small batch releases that last short times, but one day?

Anyway, think of those notes and add Honey as a note. Smells like Honey to me anyway, and it's a central note in this one. It gives it an almost Oriental sense to the composition. I like this one, but haven't worn it yet. Off the nozzle this aftershave/cologne smells more like an strong EDT, near EDP. Looking forward to wearing this on Friday.

**Edit - The aftershave/cologne isn't lasting as long as I assumed. I would definitely opt for the EDP instead on this scent. It's a scent that should have some 'umph' to it. I really enjoy this scent.
