Nebula Has Launched!
American Rock Royalty meets an English Gentleman Explorer. Men from different worlds with spirits in tune. A fellowship born from a most remarkable sequence of events...
The new Nebula range launches with a Beard Balm, Beard Oil and Moustache Wax, distinguished by a simply delectable fragrance. Top notes of exhilarating bergamot & aromatic myrtle riff with a bittersweet tang of grapefruit, rising to an intense heart of earthy, violet orris, dark coffee & tenacious woody cedar. A pulse of seductive musk trails a smoky backbeat laced with vetiver & luxurious leather.
This melodic collaboration has produced a work of true majesty!
But how on earth did this extraordinary partnership come about?
Well, chums, I shall hand the microphone to the maestro. Ladies and gentlemen...
The words of Mr John Petrucci himself...
Several years ago I was given Captain Fawcett’s Mustache Wax Cornucopia as a gift from my wife Rena. I was immediately drawn in by the amazing scents, quality of the product, beautiful presentation and whimsical creative lore present throughout the design. I instantly became a die-hard fan and loyal customer.
Years later I received an email from The Captain. A member of his crew, who happened to be a guitar player and a Dream Theater fan, recognized my name on an order. Through some coordinated social media posts, the beginnings of a new creative relationship took root.
As a professional musician, I truly believe that the most successful and artistically rewarding partnerships happen organically and this was no different. At the end of February 2020, I finally met Corey, the aforementioned guitarist at Dream Theater’s show in London and told him that if The Captain was ever interested in developing a signature beard oil with a certain bearded guitarist, I’d be onboard in a heartbeat!
And there you have it…a few weeks later we had our first Skype meeting. I met The Captain’s Right Hand Man and a few members of his brilliant artistic team and we were immediately discussing everything from scents to packaging to marketing opportunities.
I could tell from that very moment that our creative partnership would most definitely yield something incredibly special and just like that, the John Petrucci Signature Series Nebula beard product line became a reality!
And there you have it! The veritable wonders of the universe distilled into a magnificent fragrance for hirsute gentlefolk of style and discernment. Perchance the very best gift for musicians in the known universe! What better way to say ‘Sir, You Rock!’
