Whisky aftershave launched

Men’s skincare brand Portland General Store has launched a whisky aftershave said to evoke the feeling of relaxing below deck with a favourite Scotch.

The “aftershave splash” is scented with a hint of whiskey and fortified with “nourishing” sea minerals to hydrate the skin. Suitable for all skin types, the cologne features sea kelp extract, blue-green algae, aloe vera juice, tea tree essential oil and black willow bark.

According to its makers, the scent is “reminiscent of a yachtsman relaxing below deck at the end of a long day on the wild ocean, a favourite Scotch in hand”.

Based on a recipe from the 1920s, the “distinctly masculine” scent boasts notes found in your favourite single malt like wood, amber and spice, with floral hints. Housed in a brown glass bottle, the fragrance costs US$18 for 120ml.

The US-based Portland General Store specialises in male grooming products and sells an array of quirky scents including tobacco, salt water, wood and moss.

This isn’t the first whisky cologne to go on sale. In 2013 online fragrance company Commodity launched a range of 20 scents including “whiskey” and “gin” cologne and “Pinot” perfume funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign.
