Titan Beard is an American beard product company from California. The company has been producing all-natural beard products since 2014. Besides creating high-quality beard products, Titan Beard donates a portion of their proceeds to support charities such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Fisher House Foundation, which is a very respectable initiative.
This article is the first part of a Titan Beard product review series.
These 3 scents, just like the other ones I will review in this series, are rather complex and surprisingly well-blended.
Disclosure: The products reviewed in this article have been given to me free of charge. I did not receive any other compensation for writing this review.
Hades Heat – When Vanilla Meets Smoke
As a vanilla scent lover, I was totally amazed by the Hades Heat scent. Titan Beard achieved something very interesting with this blend. They describe it as “mildly smoky, sweet and smooth with hints of vanilla and amber”. This is accurate, and I couldn’t have described it better.
The vanilla is not overly present, and the smoky notes aren’t either. The amber, however, makes a big impact in the mix. This beard oil is fairly sweet, thanks to the vanilla, and mildly smoky, thanks to the amber. Without amber, I think this beard oil would be way too sweet, even for vanilla lovers.
The blend gives a terrific beard oil for sweetness lovers, and the smoky notes can even seduce beardsmen who are more driven towards woodsy scents. For me, the Hades Heat scent is the best of both words, and a blend I like very much.
Leviathan – A Touch of Incense
The first impression I had when I tried out the Leviathan scent was: “Man, it smells like incense!”. It actually does, but after wearing the oil for a few minutes, I realized that the scent is a lot more complex than that of typical incense.
Titan Beard describes the Leviathan scent as “a fresh, spicy scent with earthy base notes and top notes of lime and pine”.
The incense scent I referred to is the most popular, classic one they use in churches. I think what reminded me of incense is the strong smell of pine, combined with the earthy base notes. But while I stick to my initial impression, this beard oil actually smells far better than typical incense. The top notes of lime and undisclosed spices help make this scent very special. It’s sweet and woodsy at the same time, without any predominance from either side. The blend is incredibly well-balanced, and can appeal to most beardsmen.
Quite frankly, this is not the kind of scent I would expect from a beard oil, but kudos to Titan Beard for creating a daring, complex, versatile and tremendous beard oil scent that looks like it came out from another century.
Great Oak – A Rich Scent of Wood
The Great Oak scent is for woodsy scent lovers. This beard oil doesn’t smell like a wood plank per se, but the sandalwood base it contains is rich.
Actually, Titan Beard describes this beard oil scent as “a rich, woodsy, and slightly sweet scent with a base of sandalwood”. Personally, I think this blend is very woodsy, and if you don’t like wood scents at all, I suggest you pass on this one. However, it’s a different kind of woodsy beard oil scent. An undisclosed sweet ingredient helps make the scent more balanced, and the sweetness is noticeable, rather than providing a full-blown sandalwood beard oil that seems to come straight out of a forest.
The Great Oak scent can be a good option for those who want to try out a wood-scented beard oil that’s not too aggressive or realistic. Nonetheless, be prepared to apply rich aromas on your beard.
