Drake conceived his "Tafia de Laurier" (Bay Rum) as he scoured the seven seas, to bring back to the Royal Crown of England the treasures of the world. His booty, his travels and adventures are reflected in the spicy notes of this Bay Rum, and here we are with him on the deck: we can feel the Caribbean sun, fruity and tangy, as we open the bottle. Then come notes reminiscent of the daily life of sailors: the ship's cedar wood, lemon to fight scurvy, rum that warms the soul and precious spices in the holds. Finally, when you think that the sea has already taken everything from you, the powder speaks and the fire sets the deck ablaze. Drake managed to survive to bring us his favourite aftershave, and Darwin is honoured to be able to offer it to you in his turn.
This alcoholic aftershave lotion is 100% natural. Specially formulated to calm razor burn, it is a real moisturizing lotion thanks to the vegetable and organic glycerin. It concentrates all the astringent, disinfecting and soothing virtues of selected essential oils. The alcohol it contains is also organic, it allows to disinfect any cuts and to give this light whiplash that awakens!
Scent is composed only of natural essential oils and real amber rum (10%):
- St Thomas berry and bay laurel : two similar fruits that are reminiscent of laurel, but that soften it.
- Citron: native to India, it brings a woody and fruity note at the same time. It is a citrus fruit similar to lemon, which scent is reminiscent of cedar.
- Frankincense: a woody, fairly mineral scent with a slightly spicy aspect.
- Amber rum: warm, sweet, spicy.
- Ambergris: powdery, warm, it helps binding the different notes together.
- Cade wood: smoky and woody.

"Qu'importe le flacon, pourvu qu'on ait l'ivresse ?" Et bien là on a les deux ! Outre l'esthétique sublime de l'ensemble, on se trouve bel et bien face à un Bay Rum d'une qualité exceptionnelle. Un vrai coup de fouet rafraichissant avec les même vertus hydratantes qu'une crème, sans le coté collant. Le parfum est subtil est tonifiant. Le tout fabriqué en France avec passion et ça se sent, que demander de plus ? Le colis est arrivé très rapidement. Bref, entièrement satisfait !
