This is my favorite scent of anything I've received in almost three years from Birchbox. I always get compliments on it. Not overwhelming, just musky and "dirt" enough (love that product description) to smell like a man but not pungent and spicy and overwhelming. It's perfect.
It works very well as both a body wash and a shampoo. The scent is very present even later in the day, but it's not overpowering
Honestly husband loved...
Bought a travel size for husband to try and am now buying full size. It made his skin feel clean and hydrated, but not slimy. The scent is strong in the bottle but much more balanced on the skin. The scent lingers without overpowering.
Cut packaging and marketing. My husband liked it, especially the scent. I doubt I would pay full price for it, though!
My husband likes the manly, peppery, woodsy scent. It's very cologne like, so maybe reserve it for a sexy date or something. The name is fun "the bomb"? In German? It's a nice shower gel, foams up great and skin feels clean and soft after.
