"what do you do all day?"

Recently David Plotz from Slate came by to interview me for another installation of his series "What do you do all day?". I was nervous to listen at first (isn't it nerve-wracking to hear your own voice?) but I have to say, I'm proud! I kept my cool. Thanks Slate for coming in and asking such interesting questions about small-batch perfume making. Give a listen below:

how to grow a beard for the first time

GQ recently published an article called How to Grow a Beard for the First Time featuring yours truly, our Dude No. 1 Beard Oil. The article has proven to be been wildly popular, and lived on their homepage for several weeks as one of the Top 5 reads and we have been seeing tons of traffic to our site because of it. So, I thought I'd share their tips + tricks here for those of you in need of some beard growing, grooming, and styling tips.

1. Have Patience

It'll take most guys about a month to grow out a full beard. Resist overshaping it in those early days till you can see what's really going on. Though, do use a trimmer to give the hair an even look.

2. Accept the Itch

New beard hairs can feel like a cactus poking your skin (sorry fellas!). The prickly sensation goes away after about a week so stay strong.

3. Wash That

It's hair, so you need to clean it or dirt can get trapped underneath. You can just wash it with shampoo about twice a week, when you're showering.

4. Soften It Up

Here's the important step: use Dude No.1 Beard Oil! Hair that's supple will lay flat and won't itch your girlfriend. Plus the subtle herbs and wood scent is sure to woo her. 

5. Avoid Hard Lines

Your beard look is really customizable, but a natural look is in right now. AKA, a beard shouldn't end at your chin. Let the hair grow naturally up to about an inch or two above your Adam's apple, then allow it to fade using a few different settings on your trimmer.

6. Shape Your Face

Christian Olvera, from LA's Baxter Finley barber shop says," Everyone should aim to trim in tighter on the cheeks and leave hair a littler longer where a goatee would be."

new fall candles

To celebrate the coziness of the upcoming Fall/Winter months, we are introducing two new candles into our lineup: NOBLE and GARDEN. These candles are hand-poured in Brooklyn, using a blend of soy, vegetable and beeswax, with a 100% cotton wick. The burn time is approximately 50 hours. Candles make a wonderful gift item!

rj

RJ moved into the studio space across the way from us a year and a half ago and life has not been the same since! She is wildly funny, stylish, and a caring mama with lots of advice to dispense. She transformed her studio into a ceramics haven, with hot kilns and clay everywhere, and now I'm lucky enough to own a few pieces of her amazing jewelry holders. RJ also introduced me to Brazilian cheese bread and for that move alone, she wins. 

Name: Re Jin Lee

Occupation: Ceramicist

Hometown: Sao Paulo, Brazil

Where do you currently reside?: Brooklyn, NY

Favorite MCMC fragrance: At this moment, Garden. Before this moment, Dude No. 1

When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: Oh man, that's hard. The furthest I can go back in memory lane is the time I was crazy about Colors by Benetton.

If you were a plant, what would you be?: A rose

What's in your refrigerator right now?: Lots of Coca Cola and baby yogurt

Three words that describe you: Simple, intense, gullible
