There is no end to the geometric, architectural and sculptural possibilities when you’ve got some facial hair and a tin of Brooklyn Grooming Mustache Wax.
There’s the classic handlebar, worn by men of distinction throughout history from President William H.Taft to Panama Jack. The Dali, the Fu Manchu, the Chin Puff, the list goes on.
The point is, if you can dream it, it’s possible.
Castor oil and kukui nut oil condition your sub-nasal caterpillar while beeswax gives it supple hold and pliability. If you’re new to mustache wax—and this is the best place to start—you may be surprised by its firm, thick, gummy texture. It’s basically mustache glue.
But hey, as you know, the hair of the ‘stache is probably the hardest, most bristly hair on the face—maybe the whole body. So even with the stiffened hold of the mustache wax, you may have to spend time “training” the hair to bend and curl and defy gravity. Don’t hesitate to apply heat from a blow dryer to encourage uniform shaping.

What does Fort Greene smell like?
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 idea 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 going: and so here's that inspiration, all bottled up, tin-sealed and ready for you to experience: Fort Greene.
