Real men, we mean actual gentleman, are typically described as earnest and authentic. They exude a certain notable and sincere confidence. These same qualities are difficult to find in the everyday products we take for granted. Take shampoo, soap and shaving cream for example, these easily forgettable goods offer the tasteful gentleman an opportunity to outshine his adversaries. It is the distinction found in these simple details that separate the grown men from the young man.
Portland General Store (PGS) has done an extraordinary job creating a product line that is both thoughtful and provocative. The scents in their cologne line aka toilet waters, hark to simpler times. Take the scents of moss, saltwater and tobacco for example. They may evoke stark, earthly images but the scents associated with their names are surely reminiscent of fond memories and times past. Additional cologne “themes” available from PGS include Professor and Maine.
PROFESSOR – Reminding of tweed jackets, leather, and cherry pipe tobacco. Starts off rich and dark, and eventually melds with your skin and wears like vintage wool.
MAINE – A scent to celebrate the rugged land and hardy spirit of Maine, with notes from the sea and forest.
Provocative, yes. So much in fact that they are immediately being added to our 2012 wish list.
The kind folks at PGS are even going to make it easy to slip into your new favorite scent with an after Christmas special.
