All through the longest and hardest day, the way you smell brings you pleasure.
When beginning my line of deodorants, toothpowders, toothpastes and mouthwashes, I wanted to honor the man who is credited with introducing deodorant and toothpaste to society, a man named ZirYab. He was a 9th century musician whose many contributions to the Andalusian royal society make him one of the most influential courtiers of all time.
He began as an African slave who’s beautiful voice and interpretive skill earned him the nickname Blackbird. Perhaps his most impressive contribution was his innovations in music, the influences which revolutionized Andulsian music at the time. He was so popular that people followed his lead when it came to fashion and social graces, so when he began to find ways to keep his body and breath smelling fresh, the rest of society joined him. He also is credited with introducing the concept of seasonal fashion.
