In response, the present invention is biphasic composition consisting of alcohol, a polar compound, a fragrance and a branched hydrocarbon. It creates a formula having different olfactory and/or colored characteristics in the individual phases of the composition, giving it a unique and appealing appearance to attract the consumer's attention.
