The history and passion of: "Barrio Sweat" by Mariachi El Bronx
In the fall of 2008 while under the spell of the infectious Mariachi sounds that relentlessly oompahs as the soundtrack for Southern California, The Bronx created "Mariachi El Bronx" as a vehicle for a border bending journey of the senses. Not merely content to immerse themselves in the sounds of Mexico, Mariachi El Bronx wanted to capture Mexico's intoxicating fragrance as well. But how?! The hombre blancos de Mariachi El Bronx ensnared this primal smell like one would a wild puma. Outsmarted it, caged it while gaining its trust ala Stockholm Syndrome yet made sure not to tame it in getting close enough to the beast to milk it of all its musk. The end result of their hard work: Barrio Sweat, the cologne! Barrio Sweat is a full leather, man of virtue scent aged in oak casks for 14 months. Inhale my friend - unfiltered mineral spirits on the top of the nose quickly fades to a Mission garden bouquet of sage, thyme, and green fig. Now exhale – earthy properties of adobe, loose sand and dry grasses function as a base scent that transport a sweet agave and caramelized goats milk finish. It is a fragrance of another time for today. Each bottle of "Barrio Sweat" comes complete with a larvae of the agave snout weevil imported from Jalisco (known to gringos as "the worm") drowned at the bottom of this mystical potion. "We wanted to honor the manliness of Olde World Mexico that continues to shape the barrios where we live today" muses Mariachi El Bronx's Joby Ford. "A tribute of respect bottled to be shared with people of all nations. In these trying economic times it is increasingly hard for a man to maintain a grip on the values which make us who we are. Adorn Barrio Sweat and let our cologne speak your soul without moving your lips."
