Categories : Grooming

Hey, boys listen out- there’s a new cologne in town. But what sets this apart from others is that this cologne comes in SOLID form. It is pretty compactly sized so you can fit it in your pocket and carry it wherever you wish. The man behind this genius idea is Adrian Cheong who is also the founder of Analogue Apotik. We know you are curious to know more about Analogue Apotik and their high raved fragrances. Don’t worry Beauty Insider Malaysia has got all the news for you.

Who and What Is Analogue Apotik?

Formerly known as The Apothecary, Analogue Apotik is founded back in 2015. The idea of the brand is to complement the essence of a modern man and woman and easing their grooming routines with convenience. The name ‘The Apothecary’ came about from the word ‘pharmacist’. It was the term used to call pharmacist way before the development of drugs and medicines, when the empirical observation was the key to the cure.

How Did The Idea Behind Solid Cologne Came About?

It all started when Adrian’s fragrance bottle accidentally broke in his bag when travelling. That’s when he thought it was time for a change. Adrian Cheong decided it was time for a change. Despite looking cool and classy, the glass-bottled fragrance is extremely fragile and inconvenient. If you love fragrances you will understand what we are talking about. Adrian also noted that most of his inspiration for scents come from the things around him and his travels.

How To Use The Solid Cologne?

Oh, it is pretty easy to use and in fact very similar it’s super easy to apply. Just like your usual liquid cologne, you apply the solid one your pulse points (neck, throat, inner elbows, or back of your ears). Just dip your finger in the products and dap as much as you like.

How Are Analogue Apotik Products Made?

To Adrian, Analogue Apotik should stand for more just the scent. He believes that every product they create needs to make sense. Hence, they pay meticulous attention from their ingredients right down to their packaging. Behind, each scent there is a story. Each scent goes through a 5-6 month process of making. One of which is getting feedback from friends and family, especially his wife who he says has a different taste from him.

What Else Can You Find at Analogue Apotik Beside Solid Cologne?

The company recently launched candles that use beeswax in their formulation, unlike most brands that use soy wax. Despite being slightly pricier, beeswax burns more cleanly and releases negative ions into the air which works like an air purifier. That is why at Analogue Apotik they use beeswax.

They will also be launching refills for the crackle case soon so that customers can change them once they are done with their fragrances. Plus, Adrian has since expanded the range into oil-based fragrances and hairstyling wax, in collaboration with his friend Kevin Tan, founder of The Oven Cuttery, a barbershop in Petaling Jaya.
