About

The smell of 2 Stroke exhaust is a powerful and amazing fragrance. We are certainly not the first to consider the idea of capturing this essence in a cologne, but we will be the first to market.

  • We have conducted extensive market research;
  • Our trademark application for "2 Stroke" has been accepted  (serial number '86745242');
  • We have formulated the perfect combination of 2 Stroke fuel with the softer tones of douglas fir shavings, pine and spruce;
  • and most importantly, we have confirmed our findings in controlled and uncontrolled experiments about town.

All we need now is your help to fund the first round of production. By pre-ordering your cologne, you will help us surmount the higher costs associated with the low-volume, first run edition.

Proven Manufacturing Partner

While we are all probably used to pouring a little oil or gasoline on ourselves, we have been told that this is not actually healthy and could in fact be harmful. Well, I'll be! That was news to us! So in the spirit of prolonging our lives to allow for many more 2 STROKE experiences, we have partnered with a proven perfume and cologne manufacturer.  

Our Manufacturing Partner is proud to use only 3 ingredients in 2 STROKE: ❥ Alcohol ❥ Fragrance oil  ❥ Glycerin. It is interesting to note that the perfume industry is not regulated in the US. Many companies use chemical enhancements in their perfumes to reduce costs (less fragrance oil).  Those chemicals are not allowed in many countries because they are found to interact with the hormone system. We searched for a manufacturer that uses natural ingredients that are not harmful. This means we use more fragrance oil than most manufacturers, and while the cost is higher we believe in offering quality products. And after all, it is 2 STROKE COLOGNE, so more oil is good, right?!

Stocking Stuffer

We apologize for not being able to deliver by this holiday season. In consolation, when we have reached our funding goal, we will email all backers of $30 or more with a black & white digital e-card that can be printed and given as a gift place-holder. 

Whether you are a sawyer, lawyer, motor-head, or head-of-state... the son, daughter, husband, wife, or father ... please join us in making the 2 STROKE phenomenon a reality!

Risks and challenges

We all know how great the smell of 2 STROKE is; how it combines the scent of the great outdoors with the feeling of power and hard work. The challenge now is to just make sure we don't fuck it up when we put it in the bottle. Believe it or not, we're serious about it and have been working with a leading perfume manufacturer. They've assured us that they can replicate the scent we want, but there is of course a risk that the scent does not meet our or your expectations.

We expect our initial production run to be completed within four months. This is a conservative estimation, and we expect that we'll all be enjoying 2 STROKE by mid-May. While we are experienced in business and meeting deadlines, there is a small chance of delays outside of our control. After all, we have no idea how large the "lumber-sexual" market is on the west coast, and we could become overwhelmed with demand.
