Phoenix & Beau LE 2017

Good morning. We are looking to conduct another group buy with Kerry at P&B, hoping for a Spring release. I have been chewing the cud with Kerry, and the mods on ATG. Following discussions we have come up with a preliminary scent profile.

'Imagine walking into the a shisha bar at night. Dimly lit, a stunning decorated glass shisha pipe, pineapple head, coals smouldering. A rhetorical scent of grape, wood and faint apple/melon. Turmeric lingering in the distance, all gathered together by a whispy warm Oud.

It's broadly based on Perfume Parlour's version of Tom Ford Oud Wood. Gorgeous clean Oud with a refined sawn wood vein. Turmeric, grape and green apple/melon mix in addition.

So what I would like as per Obsidian is for us as a forum to perhaps invent a name for the new soap. Also to register interest at this stage (no money needs to be parted with as of yet) so we can ascertain the total product required.

The base will be the famous P&B standard and the scent strength requested as 'strong' . I will be looking for a couple of testers alongside the mod team to help cement the profile of this LE soap. Numbers to follow in due course. Price wise it should be similar to that of Obsidian.

Thank you for your interest. Please add your name to list if interested. Thank you.

Superb! When reading 'shisha pipe' you almost lost me, but taken by the hand walking on into that olfactory room, I most certainly followed with pleasure :) Name wise I am thinking something royal or noble (with my avatar, what else...) and with eastern inspiration.

So @Nishy is the list for testers or for the actual group buy? I would be interested in testing to get an idea before I buy. scent sounds good but i'm not after a too strong of a pungent oud scent so I really am holding back on anything based on words alone

This is the preliminary order list, to gather an idea of amount needed. The brief is a strong scented soap. Something akin to Stirling or Mystic Waters. Similar to the scent strength of Obsidian. I will be looking for one or two further testers (we already have 4 including myself), which will be confirmed at a later stage. Oud should be a prominent note to be honest.
