The Wooden Brat olfactory family is: Woody – Aromatic. Top notes are violet and violet leaf; middle notes are cedar and vetiver; the base notes are fir, musk and amber. Wooden Brat was born after having visited in the province of Lucca a centuries-old oak with a diameter of more than 4mt of trunk, a foliage of about 40mt in diameter, one of the largest in Tuscany. It is known as the witches tree, but legend has it that this oak is the one on which the puppet was hanged by the killers who wanted to rob him from the book “The Adventures of Pinocchio – Story of a Puppet by Carlo Collodi”. the birthplace of the mother of the writer Collodi is not far away. Visiting the place one perceives an almost magical air, a sense of well-being and serenity. The smell of oak wood is melted together with the floral of the spring violets that extend at the foot of the giant. All these smells and sensations perceived on a beautiful spring day, I wanted to include them in Wooden Brat
This aftershave by Toscana Factory Lab in addition to soothing the skin, nourishing and hydrating it, also takes on the function of Eau de Toilette given the percentage of fragrance present inside. Here are explained some properties of the ingredients present in it:
Glycolipids : These compounds made up of macromolecules that contain carbohydrates linked to lipids are obtained from plants. Their function is cellular recovery, i.e. the skin’s ability to retain moisture, minimize transepidermal water loss and overall skin tone and texture.
Aloe juice : this gel obtained from the homonymous cold-pressed plant and from organic farming, has a healing power.

It is this penetration that allows for essential hydration.
