Refreshing, traditional cologne made with oranges, lemons and neroli. It makes you want to pour it over ice and drink it up. (Please don't - the fine fragrance is not designed for that!) The Hairdresser's Husband was inspired by a film by the same name where the main character becomes obsessed with hairdressers, marries one and in one scene drinks the cologne and the aftershave.
"I trained as a hairdresser but never made it as a hairdresser. So the film 'The Hairdresser's Husband' is obviously pretty suited to me.
I fell in love with the concept of beauty and being surrounded by beautiful women. The film is about a young boy who falls in love with the idea of the hairdresser and keeps going to have his hair cut over and over again even though it obviously doesn't need cutting. As an older man he marries a beautiful hairdresser and hangs around in the salon entertaining the clients. One day he has an argument with his wife and afterwards they want a drink, but all they have is cologne. So there's this wonderful scene where they drink the cologne and the aftershave."
"The first alcoholic perfume, Queen of Hungary Water, was based on grape alcohol and rosemary. More herbs and citrus notes were added to later formulas. The ability to distil strong alcohol was new at the time. When Queen of Hungary water first appeared, it was treated like a cure-all - you'd drink it, bathe in it and rub it on your skin.
Today the alcohol in perfumes is denatured (made undrinkable) mainly for tax reasons."
