Paganini's Violin Aftershave Splash

24.99 Sale Save

Legends abound of the remarkable skill of Italian violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini, the greatest violinist of his time. He was so singularly talented that the story goes that he was playing a new composition at a nobleman's villa one evening, a piece commissioned by the nobleman to draw a pretty woman's affections. Paganini played beautifully, surrounded by admiring listeners, until one of the strings on the instrument snapped. Undaunted, Paganini continued to play without missing a note, and a second string snapped. He continued without interruption, to the amazement of everyone around him. Surely he could not continue? But then a third string snapped, and still Paganini continued to play, completing his performance on only the one remaining string on the violin. Awestruck, the listeners broke into thunderous applause, and the legend of Niccolò Paganini grew.

But in his later years, when asked by a biographer about the story, Paganini revealed the truth: the piece had been specifically written to be played on successively fewer strings, and it was Paganini himself who broke each one as he played, dazzling his audience in the process.

For Paganini's Violin, we have composed a fragrance built on multiple variations on a single note, all playing together into one unified, singular whole. The smell of clean skin after a hot shower, interlaced with fruity undercurrents and tea, Paganini's Violin is one of our most unusual experiments, and decidedly an in-house favorite. We know you'll love it too.

Such a great scent!

Paganin’s violin smells fresh like clean laundry, dried out on a clothesline in the sun. It makes for a great lather scent, and the balm and splash carry it forward into your day without being overwhelming.

Can’t put my finger on it, but it’s amazing!

I don’t know what this scent note is, but to me at times it smells creamy, and at times just ‘clean’. I find this scent to be addictive, I can’t pass the tub without smelling it. I couldn’t see this scent offending anyone, something that won’t interfere with your SOTD.

This is a very nice scent. It to me is a smoothing scent. Pairs well with the soap.

Excellent Scent!

The splash is a well-known quantity by now. The scent with this is just right. It's fresh, clean, and has just the right strength for just about any occasion. So often, aftershaves are either brutally in your face or tragically light after the initial splash. Neither of those options are inherently bad, but sometimes you want some fragrance, but not so much they can smell you in the office halfway down the hallway. Nor is it polarizing, as many tend to be. It would do well in an office. Or at school. Or just hanging with your friends. It doesn't ooze sexual energy. It doesn't hit your olfactory regions with some mystic or symbolic meaning. It's just a fresh, clean scent that lets you know you made an effort to smell good, but there are no ulterior motives behind it. Very well done!
