If you’re in the mood for a more tranquil expedition, try Campfire Cologne Sacred Sage.

Campfire Cologne

Birchbox Breakdown

Maybe it’s just us, but nothing is truly manly until you light it on fire. Take Campfire Cologne. This aromatic ode to the untamed trapper takes a direct approach to scent, conjuring the nostalgic smell of a burning fire with actual wood and flame. Sure, it’s more work than you’re used to, but so is fighting a bear, and you don’t see Jim Bowie complaining.

How it Works

In lieu of extracts and essential oils, this fragrance draws its potency straight from the source. A selection of aromatic wood and some stalwart matches are all you need for an instant trip to the far off wilderness. Beaver hat and musket not included.

How to Use

Start by selecting your desired amount of fuel: more sticks will mean a stronger scent. Arrange them on a fire-proof surface, and set the pile ablaze. After the sticks have fully combusted, extinguish the flames, and waft the rising smoke over your shirt and, presumably, your enormous beard.

Aromatic woods, gumption

A fun gift

Bought this as a silly gift for my husband. He thought it was fun, the packaging is really great and the idea is unique.

Good but not great.

I'll admit I wanted to like this, but it's really just some pieces of cedar wood that you light on fire and waft the smoke on yourself. Its not a bad thing, but its nothing special either. On the plus side it does smell good for the time its lit on fire. I don't know if I would repurchase it.

Smells wonderful!

If you love the smell of campfires, this is for you. The scent is spot on, the delivery is simple. I did have a little trouble with the matches because the cologne sticks don't catch fire quickly enough before the match burns down. Easy fix: just use a lighter. Bonus: these will last you for a LONG time, a little goes a very long way.

Read the fine print

I also didn't read closely and was irritated to find a box of matches. My husband and I laughed about it, but seriously save your money!

Unique Holiday Present

I purchased this for my dad for Christmas and I can't wait to give it to him! It is a really creative gift, very well put together, and memorable. It is perfect for anybody who is a fan of the outdoors. The previous reviewer is correct -- you have to read carefully to understand that you are actually just buying a campfire in a box! But that is the fun of this product. Everything was packaged and designed perfectly and it all smelled authentic. I highly recommend.

Know What You're Getting Into

What you're purchasing here is, literally, a box of sticks and a matchbook. This is more or less laid out in the description, but it's easy to miss, especially since this product is called "Cologne" and the language is a bit flowery.

The idea is that you light the sticks on fire, blow them out and then waft the smoke towards you for a "natural cologne." The braver among you may love this. I am not one of them.
