Time to jump into the (not so) way back machine and revisit the first scent I ever developed! Original is a blend of sandalwood and bergamot.
When I was just starting Declaration Grooming (previously known as L&L), and had never made a scent before, it was imperative that I started off with a scent that was simple, clean, and safe. While many budding scentcrafters would likely turn to a fragrance wheel, I drew my inspiration from the dignified Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
This is my take on a scent that I think would be appropriate for the bridge of the Enterprise. It is crisp yet soft, present yet subdued. The kind of scent a seasoned diplomat would wear to an important negotiation.
Simple. Safe. Picard.
I aimed to create the least-drying alcohol formula possible while still retaining some of the alcohol burn. The burn is quickly soothed by witch hazel, aloe, my signature botanical blend, and light menthol. I also added a few extra skin-conditioning ingredients to keep your skin looking and feeling great all day – without excessive drying. Please shake very well before use.
