Please note that during weather changes, your balm may have a slightly grainy consistency due to the Shea butter "crystallizing." If this happens, you may restore the consistency by placing the tin into a water-tight bag and submerging it with a pair of tongs into freshly boiled water for about 30 - 60 seconds. Hold down into the water with tongs to heat all of the product. Now, with the tongs, remove from the water and place into the fridge to reset.
After a shower or while hair or beard is slightly wet, scoop a small amount of balm onto thumbnail and soften between fingers. Apply thoroughly to beard, mustache, or hair. Take your time - imagine coating every hair on every side.

Fort Greene Smells fresh and alive! Think of it as a cologne version of mechanic's grease (it does not smell like an auto-body shop). It has an aroma that is pointed, invigorating and masculine without being butch. It is NOT "masculine" in the way that traditional men's fragrances are. It doesn't smell like a fragrance: it's more like a delightful bonus breath for some lucky bystander when you happen to pass wearing it. With its distinct botanical notes of pine (thankyouverymuch Rosemary) and the added character of Juniper, Fort Greene carries off a breezy balance with the dulcet additions of floral lavender and bergamot.
Why Name a scent Fort Greene?The beauty of our fragrances is that they stimulate the olfactory sense in a completely different way from your everyday cologne, perfume or scented lotion. Whether she knew it or not, when Mckenzie originally formulated our core scents, what she was doing was redefining the relationships between fragrance and wearer, fragrance and smeller, and probably wearer and smeller as a result! She was blazing trails in the cliche-fraught fragrance industry. Our version of Fort Greene is a unisex blend of invigorating herbs and spices meant to regenerate, soothe and inspire. It is scented with juniper and rosemary, two incredibly uplifting herbs, and is balanced by lavender and bergamot to help create a beautifully balanced botanical blend of spiced, floral greens. The driving force behind this scent was to reflect Fort Greene's rich and varied musical history. In our studio we listen to a well-balanced variety of hip hop, rock n' roll and classics to get our inspiration: and so here's that inspiration, all bottled up, tin-sealed and ready for you to experience: Fort Greene.
