I'm trying something new this weekend, a medium-hold pomade called Orange Blossom Special by this cool cat Ben March (Mr. March's Pomade). Now, what he tells me is that the OBS is formulated after Johnny Cash's favorite pomade, and yes, it smells like orange blossoms. So I tossed some in as soon as it arrived and will rock it for at least the first half of the week.
So far, this is great!
This guy's stuff is raw, man. Home-brewed and full of attitude. He sent me some sample of his other stuff, and I'm already dying to try the Cold Duck, which just knocked me out with the menthol smell. I'm not a big "mint" fan when it comes to the taste of mint, but the smell really gets to me. Nice. But for now, the Orange Blossom Special.
He's got some labels coming for those tins (I've seen em. Excellent art), but in the meantime, it's very cool to get the stuff with the Sharpie work. Seriously, that's just raw right there.
And here's how it's looking right now. I like it. A nice small pomp. Smells great, looks slick.
I think I've found a definite winner. And the Cold Duck, I've got my eye on that for mid-week.
If you buy some this month and next, some of the money goes to support both an autism and diabetes charity, for reasons very personal to Mr. March. Since I'm a diabetic now, well, if cool pomade will help fun a cure, I'm all over it.
In a few days, I'll write a post about NoirCon, how I'm eager to get back after being away for so long. So yes, a non-hair related blog, can you believe it?
