What is a facial serum?
Compared to lotions and moisturizers which hold in moisture by basically blanketing the face, facial serums are made up of much smaller molecules that have the ability to penetrate far deeper into the skin delivering not just moisture, but also nutrients that improve and enrich the production of new skin from its inception. The result is healthier more nourished skin from the start.
Our Facial Serum is a concentrated blend of highly nutritive, reparative and beautifying oils (including the great equalizer jojoba and miracle moisturize argan) that help restore and maintain balance to the delicate skin of the face. It may seem counterintuitive, but our botanical serum is good for all skin types, even people with oily and problematic skin. The oils are light and absorb quickly, vanishing deep into the pores after only a couple minutes. Consistent use will regulate the skin's production of sebum (natural facial grease) by mimicking the sebum itself.
In time the consistent moisture balance will allow your skin to regenerate evenly, alleviating the frustration of problem areas and safeguarding against dryness---thereby slowing the skin's natural aging process.
Come to think of it, maybe we should call this stuff a potion.
Directions for Use:
**Never apply the facial serum without first thoroughly washing the face: if the pores are not opened, you'll just be wasting the product. After you've washed the face in warm water and patted dry, apply 3-4 drops of Facial Serum (1 to each cheek, 1 to forehead, 1 to chin) and gently rub them into the skin. Allow to absorb. (using too much will only waste more product and cause your face to appear greasy: the pores are tiny and relatively shallow. REMEMBER: a little goes a long way)

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.
