THE STORY OF NIGHT WITCH.
1) The Nachthexen, or night witches. Formed in October 1941, "nachthexen" was the German nickname for the all female military aviators of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, known later as the 46th "Taman" Guards Night Bomber Aviation Regiment, of the Soviet Air Forces.
2) Wolf People, a vastly talented English psychedelic rock band who mostly hail a stone's throw from Phoenix and Beau and were formed in Clophill, Bedfordshire. Jack Sharp, Joe Hollick, Dan Davies and Tom Watt wrote and recorded the goose-bump inducing 'Night Witch' song for their 2016 album, Ruins.
A story of female heroism during WW2, of loss and of duty, this is a song that rips and snarls its way through swirling chords, fuzzed up guitar, pulsating bass and towering drums. We loved the song so much we wanted to dedicate something we make to it.
3) Old Spice, or specifically our want to offer our own homage to the classic staple. We've used the colour scheme of the Shulton Companies best known product and, given that this counts as our Halloween (Autumnal) release, thought it appropriate to go for design that links Old Spice, the nachthexen and the occult.
We hope you like it.
What does it smell of? A homage and doffing of cap to the staple classic that is the Schulton Companies classic scent 'Old Spice'. As you might imagine, it's a beautiful and aromatic fougere, with top notes of galbanum, lavender, bergamot, lemon, lime, orange and black current. The heart is made of rose and lily of the valley before dropping down to a base of patchouli, cedar, opoponax, ambergris and oakmoss.
