Declaration Grooming - Cuir Et Épices - Alcohol-Free Aftershave, 3.1oz
“Cuir et Épices” is a blend of leather, tobacco flower, cedar, anise, oakmoss, and patchouli. This scent is unique unto itself and somewhat difficult to describe. The beta feedback was all over the place, but we think the closest to capturing the scent was:
“This is what I imagine John Wayne’s kitchen smelling like – soft leather, vaguely appley, with a twist of some kind of baking spice.”
However, this is absolutely not a gourmand scent, so don’t let the “appley” or “baking spice” fool you. We would rate this scent as neutral tending toward masculine. This scent is decidedly more masculine in aftershave form and blends beautifully with menthol.
Our alcohol-free formula is the perfect splash for any season – light enough for the hottest summer day and protective/moisturizing enough for the harshest winter. (Please do not quote us on this if you’re an Antarctic researcher).
Our formula is fortified with four botanical extracts that we hand-steep into a glycerite tincture.
White Willow Bark: Contains salicin, which may help ease pain and reduce inflammation.*
Burdock Root: Antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, may help soothe post-shave discomfort.*
Sea Buckthorn: High concentrations of antioxidants as well as palmitoleic acid (Omega 7) which may provide anti-aging properties as well as aiding wound healing.*
Grape Seed: High concentrations of antioxidants (oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes) that may have antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties.*
