7 Doubloons

Ahoy Mates! There be treasure ahead in this here post.

Let me tell you the tale of the 7 Doubloons.  As Pirates, we have our little secrets. We like to hide things sometimes in plain sight, others you may need a map to find. Sometimes we need the map because we just can't remember where we put our things. You never know where or when the "X" will show up.

Each Brother has his own doubloon that's unlike any of the other seven. If a Brother doesn't show the proper Doubloon he walks the plank and gets to meet Davy Jones locker.

So what does this all have to do with shaving you ask? Well, I'm glad you asked. When I set out to create the White Whale scent, I reached out to the Brotherhood and sent all of those blackguards a small smattering of each scent to choose which they felt best to fit the majestic White Whale. 

mixing the 7After living with the samples, our Brotherhood choose the scent they felt was best for the White Whale. Several of us felt that another was the one best suited for the White Whale, but to us self-respecting pirates a vote is a vote and thus White Whale was born. Davy Jones be damned, I knew I had to come out with this scent. So I charted a new heading for this wonderful scent knowing that I had to come out with it. 

This year we knew was the right time to bring this scent to life. with its blend apple, musk, sandalwood, fir, black currrant, and cilantro. it's the perfect blend for summer. This past Saturday we had a chance to unveil it before hundreds of our fellow brothers of the shave. They all gave us a resounding huzzah.  I think you'll enjoy it as much as they did.

Do you know the pirates behind the making of 7 Doubloons? What about their pieces of eight. What can you tell us about them?

Let us know what you would like to see on our blog & stay tuned for our next entry into the Captain's blog.
