Mountain Man – Wilderness at its Best
The Mountain Man beard oil scent is the one for outdoors and wilderness enthusiasts. This scent has a few different notes, making it a rather complex, great-smelling blend. The blend contains cedarwood, rose and lime. As a result, you get a strong base of citrus combined with floral notes brought in by the rose, and cedarwood that helps make the whole blend a tad spicy and woodsy.
For wild scent lovers, this is a great option. The agile combination of cedarwood, lime and rose offers a large spectrum of aromas, without being too daring. Belligerent Beard managed to create a nice wild beard oil scent without messing around with sweet ingredients or using too much wood or floral scents in their blend.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Mountain Man beard oil scent :
Jojoba Oil*, Argan Nut Oil*, Almond Oil*, Avocado Oil*, Cedar Atlas*, Rose Otto Hydrosol*, Lime Hydrosol* (*USDA Certified Organic Ingredient).
Motor Oil – Clean and Fresh
The Motor Oil beard oil scent is actually a nod to the owner’s father, who as mechanic, never grew a beard fearing that it would always smell like motor oil and other chemicals used in his garage. The company created a beard oil scent that’s fresh, especially for their dad.
Don’t worry, this beard oil scent is far from smelling like a pint of Castrol oil :-).
This scent blends lemongrass and tea tree aromas. The citrus notes are rather strong, but thanks to the subtle woodsy ones of the tea tree, the end result is just fine. Obviously, if you don’t like lemongrass, you might as well pass on this one, since this what it smells like. But if you like citrus beard oil in general, and look for one that feels fresh, the Motor Oil scent is one that can sure please you.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Motor Oil beard oil scent :
Jojoba Oil*, Argan Nut Oil*, Almond Oil*, Avocado Oil*, Lemongrass Essential Oil, Tea Tree Essential Oil (*USDA Certified Organic Ingredient).
Gentleman – Put your Cologne Away
The Gentleman beard oil scent is close to that of floral cologne. The essential oils used are Tonka Bean and lavender, which are both floral. Tonka Bean has a very unique sweet smell, and it’s very present in the blend, whereas the lavender notes are milder.
I had never smelled Tonky Bean before, and I must admit that it smells pretty good. It’s kind of hard to describe though. I’d be tempted to say that it smells a bit like vanilla, with very subtle notes of citrus and mild notes in the likes of coffee bean. It’s a bit musky, but mostly sweet.
The end result can be compared to floral cologne, with a touch of musk and on the sweet side. This is a beard oil you can use every day. It’s a sure shot, and no one in the office will tell you that you smell like a pine tree or a cedarwood plank, for instance. They’ll just think you bought a new cologne.
Freedom – Spicy Freshness
The Freedom beard oil scent provides you with the freshness of eucalyptus and the spicy character of tobacco. This blend is an awesome one, and enables you to get a beard oil that feels fresh, without having to endure the very acidic smell of lemon or the strength of mint.
Eucalyptus is the best of both worlds. Being basically a floral aroma, it has moderate lemon notes. Therefore, you get the freshness of citrus, but indirectly. It’s not as “in your face” as citrus-based scents like lime or lemongrass, for instance.
In addition, Eucalyptus has minty notes (that’s one of the reasons why it’s often used in cough syrup and lozenges). But again, it only has notes, it’s not mint-based like peppermint.
The tobacco notes are subtle, but do a great job at adding mild spicy notes to the blend. I think the proportion of tobacco used in this beard oil is just fine. The scent benefits of its spicy side without being saturated with its presence.
The end result gives a solid beard oil that can appeal to floral and citrus scent lovers, especially. It’s also definitely worth trying if you’re not usually into those kinds of scents, you might be surprised at how good it actually smells.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Freedom beard oil scent :
Jojoba Oil*, Argan Nut Oil*, Almond Oil*, Avocado Oil*, Natural Vitamin E Oil, Tobacco Essential Oil, Eucalyptus Oil (*USDA Certified Organic Ingredient).
Oblivion – The Unscented One
The Oblivion beard oil is fragrance-free. Therefore, there’s not much to say about its scent, as it doesn’t have any.
This is a great one for two kinds of beardsmen : The ones who don’t want their beard to smell anything, and the ones who want to emphasize a scented beard balm they like.
