Vintage from Clearing Out the Cobwebs 1 at Dark Delicacies on February 8th, 2009.
To celebrate the opening of the Black Phoenix Trading Post, we are offering this rugged, visceral dark cowboy scent. Now widely considered a portent of doom, the Dead Man's Hand is a term used in five-card poker when you have ""aces over eights"" or ""aces backed with eights"" — the hand allegedly held by Wild Bill Hickock when he was gunned down from behind by Jack McCall in Saloon No. 10, Deadwood. According to the saloon's proprietor, Hickock was holding all black cards, aces and eights, and it is believed that he was about to draw at the time of his murder.
Our Dead Man's Hand is the quintessential western scent: dusty rawhide and oiled leather.
