I would say the dude no 1 beard oil is pretty great. The smell is really nice. Very much a wood scent, but also throws in some earth and a dab of spice. I like it because I don't really wear cologne. I usually rely on either beard oil or after shave if I wear scent. I would say if you're going to invest in a good beard oil that can probably also double as a light cologne then I would say get this one. The oil is a lot lighter than other beard oils i've tried in the past. And as Ive said smells better too. However obviously 65 bucks is sort of steep for beard oil, but I can honestly say dude no 1 smells great, and it works really well. Also it's natural and hand made. Also you should know it comes in a roller ball application not a dropper. I don't know if that makes a difference. It wasn't that difficult to apply.
Smells great! Very Shiny!
I got this product for my boyfriend last christmas. It smells very good, almost like a winter forest, but not too strong. It made his beard very shiny and healthy looking.
want to like but not a perfect product...
I'll be honest, I don't think this product is really DOING very much. I've been using it for about 6 months and I do enjoy putting it on, but I don't think I'd buy it again.
That being said, I think the price and lack of "results" puts this product in a cologne category. As a cologne, the smell doesn't stick around for very long, and for the time it is around, its STRONG. it literally smells like liquid wood.
I WANT a product like this. If they could lower the price or make it less STRONGLY wood scented and make the scent last longer or make it have more of a beard softening effect i would buy it either as a cologne or as as beard softener.. but right now its just kind of a novelty...
Softens and smells great!
I bought this for my boyfriend for Movember and his beard is so much softer and smells really good. His skin underneath seems a lot more conditioned and less flaky which is a big plus!
