Uitwaaien aftershave balm with pump
Uitwaaien is a Dutch idiom meaning a walk in the wind, as a means of refreshing and clearing the mind. Uitwaaien is a woody iris perfume with a salty aspect, inspired by a rocky beach I used to go with my friends as a kid. We'd climb the cliff a hundred yards from the edge of the sea, our hands digging into the clay, grabbing roots to pull ourselves up, the sound of wind and ocean indistinguishable from one another. We climbed til we stood at the top, wind whipping, full of freedom and togetherness and accomplishment.
Top: Cold iris, tinged green, with a barely there subdose of mint.
Heart: Transparent deconstructed florals ride the salty wind, underpinned by a haze of seaweed and driftwood.
Base: Rooty orris and vetiver mingle with cedar, sandalwood, and spiky modern superambers.
A portion of the sales of Uitwaaien will be donated to RestoreNYC and their work to make freedom real for survivors of trafficking in the United States.
About the balm
I reached out to Vida of Chicago Grooming Co. to collaborate on a postshave product to complement the Tusk base. I really wanted a runny balm inspired by her fantastic Good Oleo skin serum. Mammoth Magic aftershave balm is the result.
Usage: A dime-sized amount applied to a wet face after your shave. Turn dispenser top 1/4 turn to lock and unlock.
