The Bearded Man’s Summer Activity Guide

Summer is well underway and if you’re like most, you’re probably looking for fun outdoor activities you can partake in to enjoy the warm weather. Well, you’ve come to the right place! We outlined summer activities below for every interest — whether you’re heading to the beach, the woods, or on the road.

Check out our guide below matching the perfect Fresh Beards scent for every summer activity.

Surf Some Waves — Beach Blend

Hang loose! Plan a day spent at the beach this summer and test your skills surfing some killer waves. Surfing is the ultimate summer activity for adrenaline junkies and will help you beat the heat. When you grab the surfboard wax for your board, don’t forget to grab beard butter or beard balm for your man mane as well. Our Beach Blend coconut and lemongrass scent is the perfect tropical mix to soften your beard after spending the day in the sun and salt water. Surf’s up!

Grill Outside — Voodoo

When you think of summer, what comes to mind? If working the grill with a spatula in one hand and a beer in the other while listening to your favorite music sounds like the ideal pastime to you, then you’re not alone. Pick up your favorite slab of meat from the butcher and work your magic on the grill. If you’re proud of your title as the “Grill Master” and your dinner guests ask for your secrets, then Voodoo is the blend for you. Our cologne blend is made with bergamot, fresh lime, jasmine, sweet orange, and eucalyptus, and like your skills behind the grill, it works magic.

Pitch a Tent — Campfire

Some of the best summer memories are made sitting around the campfire surrounded by the woods and night sky. Ditch the phone, pitch a tent, and roast marshmallows for a quiet and lowkey summer getaway. One of the best parts of camping is the smoky aroma and you can indulge in that same scent for your beard. Pack our Campfire blend for your next camping trip. 

Go Fishing — Woodland

Hang the “Gone Fishing” sign in your window and head to your local waterway to reel in some fish. But don’t forget your beard butter first. Putting in your favorite beard care products isn’t only reserved for special occasions or dressing up and our Woodland cedar and patchouli blend is perfect for any fishing outing. Whether you score a great catch or leave without any fish, at the end of the day you’ll still be a winner with our Woodland blend.

Perfect Your Pitch — Major League

The summer is the perfect season to enjoy quality time with your kids in the backyard playing catch, perfecting your pitch, and enjoying friendly competition. While it may seem like an obvious choice, we recommend our Major League blend for both a casual hangout in your backyard or for any attendance at a sporting event. There’s big league appeal in our Major League's raw tobacco and clove blend.

Go for a Float – Shipwrecked

Whether you blow up a raft, grab your paddles, or captain a boat around a lake or ocean, there’s something relaxing about spending the day floating on the water. When packing your cooler and boat for the day on the water, don’t forget to include our Shipwrecked beard butter as well! Our bay rum blend is the ultimate scent for any adventurous man who captains his own ship. Don’t bother looking for buried treasure out at sea, our Shipwrecked blend is all you’ll need.

Hit the Trails — Recon

Get outdoors this summer and explore the trails by taking a hike or covering ground on your mountain bike. Spending time in nature is a great way to clear your mind, get in some exercise, and admire great views. Our Recon blend is the scent every great outdoorsman loves — fresh cut pine. Opt for this refreshing and clean scent on your next outdoor adventure.

Embark on a Road Trip — 1920
