A314 Rev “27 Brute” – This was a version of A314 that was about to never exist.
One of the facets of A314 Classic’s strong masculine assuredness is driven by a microdose of androstenone (the same molecule that drives the raw sex appeal of Turn Up the Heat).
In the Classic formulation, the Androstenone ratio is small – just enough to tingle the subconscious, mostly used to synergize with the other pheromonal energies and establish those uncrossable male boundaries (Yeah, YOU try eye contact with an alpha male silverback gorilla and see how YOU do). Androstenone is *so potent*, a little bit goes a really long way and can overpower anything it touches. We actually sequester its stage of formulation to keep from contaminating everything.
Well, more than halfway through weighing the parts for what eventually ended up as the “Brute” version, the technician at the time accidentally weighed way too much androstenone. Michael intervened, finished the batch himself, then tested it amongst himself and a handful of other trusted users. It was certainly A314… but more… brutal, cold, and calculating. Instead of throwing out the batch, we’re just calling it as we see it and giving it its own version number. A314 Brute Version is now here.
All the same general “androstenone caveats” apply here. Don’t wear in polite company. Don’t wear to church. Don’t wear around a menstruating woman.
You’ll want A314 Brute if you’re in a high charged competitive environment where you need to edge off rivals with low grade ape-like intimidation factor, while dominantly emitting a competent and confident air of excellence. You’re not just another idiot testosterone fueled rival with a hot head and a weak spot to exploit (such an androstenone problem!), you’re a brute force who earned his badges with calculated effort.
