Gents, it's all gone!


I'm considering doing a LE of my experimental menthol (for sale) with a few changes. Some have the x-menthol, others only know the moisturizer package from the Bay Rum.

It'll have 2x (or more) the menthol and lots more scent. If you use even a moderately aggressive razor it should freeze your face. Same moisturizer package as the KFBR. I might make 20 or so bottles if I can get my friend to design a label for it (if there's an interest) since I'm definitely not an artsy person. I won't release it w/o a label.

I already have it mostly made, just tweaking things to get 'em right; esp' the menthol level.

Interested beyond mere curiosity? Let me know in this thread.

As mentioned before, I love menthol. I like the current experimental menthol A/S - twice the menthol should be twice as good.

Let me know when and where to send cash Tongue

Menthol would be a nice addition. I'm already a big fan of your products.

Brian, can they do the lawn? Biggrin

OK, I'll ask for a label design then.

This will probably be the last menthol for some time.

I'll post here when it's available and it'll be first come, first served, until the available bottles are gone. Probably by PM or e-mail through the website. I don't think my webmaster will have time to write code for 20 or so bottles. Frankly I don't want to ask him for that amount.

I love menthol and actually added menthol crystals to your KFBR. Go for it.

How did that turn out? Menthol has a tendency to over power other scents.

-----------------

BTW, someone asked about price. It might be a few dollars more than the bay rum. I don't know yet, haven't figured out what the final result will be yet. Still tweaking. The more menthol I add the more scent it requires. To get the face freeze I want I'm considering just letting the scent take a back seat and just go for the ride. I already have a huge amount of scent in it! Nothing subtle about this LE menthol, but like the BR it's not super long lived. After 3 hours it's very faint.

My volunteer label designer tells me that he'll get to it but that it might take 2 weeks.

With the amount of crystals needed for a little cooling, I've found your bay rum scent remains strong. I've added enough for a face freeze yet.

I really like the Experimental Menthol. If the skin care remains the same in the face freezer, this is another, incredible winner!

I say, I'm in if there is still room!

I'm not taking orders yet. This is only an update.

I bottled it today. There will be exactly 20 bottles available. When they're gone they're gone.

I'm still waiting for the label design so nothing is even near ready to ship, and I won't take any $ before they are ready to go out the door. In e-mailing back and forth with my designer, he told me that he has something special in mind for the label. I don't even know how it'll look.

I'm not going to do a production cost analysis for just 20 bottles- that'd be just ridiculous. But I know it used A LOT MORE ingredients. For pricing I don't think I'll get hurt too badly at $12.99/4ozs + $3.99 shipping (standard) + Paypals cut (.30 + .03%)= $17.79 per bottle CONUS. Non-CONUS contact me for additional shipping. PayPal it as "goods". (But not yet)

When it's ready I'll post here and inform those who expressed an interest by PM.

One thing with the LE, definitely be sure to shake it before using. There's a lot of EO in the mix and they will definitely come out of suspension. You don't want a handful of essential oil to rub on your face.

EHV, skin care is the same, maybe a hair better, the menthol is 2x, the EOs are off the chart. BTW, I see your post is #18, so you're definitely in.

Maybe I'm menthol sensitive, but the LE almost hurts me... almost. Use it after an aggressive razor shave and you'll definitely feel it. Use it after a menthol shave soap to enhance it even more.

Oh yes, this sounds great! What EOs are used in this LE menthol?
