Not so many years ago, I’ve been convinced that I was a muggle-raised Hogwarts prospect whose admission letter got lost somewhere in the owl postal service. If you’re one of those wrongfully neglected wizardry students, you will probably remember the following quote:
“I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death.”
Awww…years have passed and I still haven’t met Snape’s equivalent – someone who could teach me how to master the art of potion making. Yet, I recently discovered a brand with similar capabilities.
Daneson is a candian brand that offers gentlemen’s style in a vial – bottled manliness, if you will – turning everyone into a modern version of James Dean.
From Wands to Toothspicks
Alright, after this Harry Potter homage version of an introduction, you are realizing that this is going to be a review on…toothpicks. You are tempted to leave this page looking for something more enticing, but hear me out: these splinters are special.
When making these small batch flavoured toothpicks, Daneson uses only veneer quality A-Grade wood milled from northern white birch in America. Infused with premium natural ingredients like essential oils and single malt scotch, these sticks unfold a subtle aroma that develops slowly once the toothpick warms up in your mouth. From cinnamint to ginger & honey, from single malt to bourbon, there is a variety of flavours to choose from. On top of that, Daneson toothpicks come in small vials that convey the ultimate gentleman’s charm.
From Status Symbol to Gourmet Experience
A toothpick is more than just a toothpick and it always has been. But here’s a fun fact I didn’t know before. Back in the days when people rarely could afford eating out, toothpicks were a status item suggesting you actually could afford dining at a restaurant. Hence, toothpicks were quite popular among young men trying to impress the ladies. Nowadays, toothpicks have lost this charm.
Daneson, however, is reviving the toothpick’s heritage. We now can savour thicker high-end toothpicks while wandering off to memories, relaxing the mind, and appreciating the moment.
To me, these toothpicks certainly are more than interdental cleaning instruments. Similar to a good wine being more than a liquid to accompany a good meal. I have to admit, I’ve always been a sucker for toothpicks. I simply enjoy rolling the stick between my lips like others enjoy chewing gum. With Daneson toothpicks, I get to bring this pleasure to the next level.
My favourite time is around sunset when I would sit on my balcony and soak up these honey coloured sunbeams while enjoying the moment. And hey, if you’ve read my blogpost on CRDF, you might agree that these sticks put some flair back to my face. 😀
We all are witnessing the emergence of a movement that cherishes the old-fashioned gentlemen’s demeanour. From stag’s antlers to barber’s shops, many lifestyle products have adopted this aesthetic to appeal to a new generation of men. So whether you are looking for a unique father’s day gift or a way to treat yourself, Daneson is the way to go.
So which flavour would you like to try?
