Alt Innsbruck: Fresh from the Austrian Alps

March 12th, 2012 § 0

Conceived and nurtured in the heart of the Tirol, the refined products of Alt Innsbruck are as fresh and pure as the surrounding snow-capped Alps. Alt Innsbruck’s intoxicatingly aromatic fragrance is full with Virginia tobacco, rich and nostalgic and reminiscent of a deep breath of an antique humidor brimming with the finest hand-wrapped cigars. A crisp, yet harmonious, note of icy menthol cools and refreshes, balancing the aroma perfectly.

Available in Pre- and After Shaving Emulsions, Colognes and Aftershaves, this irresistibly manly scent was formulated carefully in the late 1940s and early 1950s by a master Austrian druggist, Franz Gatterer. Herr Gatterer created a rare classic, a bracing measure of cooling menthol followed by the light but authoritative ambiance of the tobacco and its flower. Its two-note fragrance is clear yet complex, lingering yet never cloying.

Badger Brush Basics: When You Need a Deeper Clean

March 5th, 2012 § 0

Life is full of vagaries. The quality of light at the villa in Tuscany was ethereal, but the water was mineral-filled. The cleaning staff at the hotel on your last business trip thoughtfully repacked your dopp kit for you, but before your shaving brush was dry. The endless winter is over, but a recent humid spell is making the entire bathroom a bit damp — and a little “fragrant.” The long-awaited wedding of your closest friend is tomorrow, but your favorite shaving soap is hundreds of miles away, necessitating an emergency run to the drugstore for an inferior replacement.

Time, accidents and choices can wear on the badger shaving brush you long coveted and now treasure. Although a closely-followed daily cleaning routine usually can keep your brush in fine lathering fettle, water hardness, humidity, improper storage and certain shaving products can cause brush failure. Stiffened or crooked hair or a growing soap-scum ring are signs you may need to deep clean your brush. And, the unmentionable, but quite possible, mildew or begins of mold on the handle or base of the hairs — not on the brush you use on your face! Take a deep breath, never fear, as you probably have exactly the ingredients for a rejuvenating shaving brush spa treatment in your kitchen, laundry and bathroom.
