Brooklyn Soap Company Beard Oil

We can imagine it. We’re walking through a dirty narrow New York alleyway. It’s a crisp autumn morning. Big scarf is wrapped several times around the neck. Beard on display. We stop outside a shop window with a barely noticeable crack down in the left-hand corner. Our gazes are drawn inside. Behind the glass, on a pedestal, is a sample of Brooklyn Soap Company Beard Oil. “That one must sit like a worn-out baseball in a newly-oiled catcher’s mitt”, we whisper in unison. Were we right?

Scent
“It smells like gin!” the first one exclaims. “It smells like JUNIPER!!” yells the other. We kept at this for a while, until we agreed that the scent isn’t enough to place it among the top favourites. It just smells like you’d expect a beard oil to smell. A little pine-y and a little oily. No added points to speak of. Sorry.

Bottle and packaging
Eve here, it feels rather neutral. An okay bottle with a (barely) acceptable label. The dropper is good, though, and that’s always a plus.

Conclusion
If you’ve been to New York more than five times, have one of those I LOVE NY t-shirts in the closet, and love everything about “The Big Apple” ― THEN this oil might be something for you. If not… nah.

Ingredients:
Lots of different oils, none of which really stand out.
