At Fresh Beards we say the beard doesn’t make the man, the man makes the beard. And if you're going to cultivate your best facial hair, you need products that speak to your personal style.
One of the many things that sets us apart from the competition is our huge collection of scents and fragrances. Our scents are distinct, diverse, and unique, just like our customers.
In this official Fresh Beards Scent Guide we break down our core collection so you can have an easier time choosing the right option for you. Each scent is available in our high quality butter, balm, and oil formulas.
And remember, if you read our guide and you're still not sure, our sample sets make it easy to try as many scents as possible.
Let’s get into it!
This scent alone is enough to curl your mustache. 1920 gives you that vintage barbershop feeling.
They say memories can be triggered by certain scents, and even if you’ve never been to an old timey shop, 1920 will manifest thoughts of rich shaving lather, checkerboard tiles at your feet, and the hypnotising barber pole spinning in red, white, and blue.
This scent is perfect for anyone who’s a bit old school, with a well kept beard, who looks like he came straight from the barbershop every morning.
*Cling* *Clang* With our armor scent, the only thing you’ll really have to fend off is the affection of suitors. This sandalwood and bourbon blend provides a powerful aroma with an air of chivalry. If you want a full set of beard armor you’re in luck because this scent’s been forged into butter, balm, oil, and wax.
If you feel an urge to clap coconuts together, drink and know things, or you simply love bourbon, Armor is perfect for you.
The wind blows and the waves crash as the tropical aroma of coconut and lemongrass fills your nostrils. Welcome to the beach, brotendo! If you find yourself taking trips to the beach more than once a summer, or you can’t stop fist pumping, this is your scent.
Coconut and lemongrass blend perfectly in every package, and as soon as you rub this fantastic Beach Blend scent into your beard you'll feel only easing going, loose hanging, beach town vibes. Surf's up!
Black Light may evoke thoughts of raves, CSI, and laser tag, but this scent is far more sophisticated than that. This is a luxury cologne that’s as smooth as the men who use it. If you’re heading out for a night on the town, a big interview, first date, or anything else serious - or seriously fun - Black Light is the scent for the occasion.
Treat yourself and your beard and embrace the high roller lifestyle with Black Light.
You sat around a crackling fire with your friends all night, and now your clothes have a strong, smokey smell. Some people would immediately throw them in the hamper, but you’re different. You love that ashy aroma. The rest of the day you proudly wear it, and with every breath you’re reminded of the beers, hotdogs, and s'mores you enjoyed last night. Life's easier around the fire.
If this sparked something in you, then get excited. With Fresh Beards' Campfire products you can have that smokey essence with you everywhere you go.
Maybe scents aren’t your style, maybe you know that your own manly musk is perfect the way it is, or maybe your nose is easily irritated. No matter the reason, some guys just aren’t that into sporting an added aroma, and that’s why we offer our Classic unscented products. Classic works just as well as our scented products, but it is entirely smell free.
Classic is also a penny pincher’s favorite, because it's $2 cheaper than the rest.
Percolators, drips, presses, oh my. Coffee can be made in so many ways, but we prefer this deep, dark brew inside a 4 ounce package of beard butter. If you’re a coffee enthusiast who simply can’t get enough of that caffeinated carafe, then our Dark Roast scent is perfect for you.
We’ve also been told this scent is great for anyone who has trouble waking up in the morning. Simply rub this scent into your beard and suddenly you’ll snap awake. That's the power of rich, freshly brewed coffee.
No one wants to be called a freak, but face it: Some of us are a little freaky. This beard scent is meant to help you embrace that inner weirdness. It’s infused with fresh lime, lemon, orange and herb to put a little zest and a touch of spice in your life. There’s nothing wrong with being who you are, and Freak will empower you to feel fresh and a little freaky at the same time.
Freak is one of our most popular scents. We pride ourselves in creating a citrus smell that is nothing like all those cleaner-esque ones you'll find elsewhere.
Major League is like a giant cuban cigar rolled into the size of a baseball bat.
Imagine you’re sitting in a premier Havana humidor perusing the finest cigars on the market while the biggest baseball game in the world is being broadcast from the radio overhead. If that sounds like heaven, you'll understand the big league appeal of Major League's raw tobacco and clove blend.
Step up to the plate with this hecho a mano scent and take a puff!
Have you been to the land down under? Well get ready for a fanfare of didgeridoos, because No. 5 is infused with tea tree oil.
Tea tree has been used for centuries by Aboriginal Australians for it’s incredible cleaning, healing, and moisturizing properties. The scent is that of earthy eucalyptus, without the termites. We also infused No. 5 with the scent of lemon drop to compliment the spice and give it an extra fresh appeal.
If you’re down to earth this is the scent for you.
Recon was created to honor our country's brave servicemen. This scent is pure, bold, fresh cut pine. Recon is perfect for the classic man's man who isn’t afraid of anything, the patriot who stands with pride, the outdoorsman with rifle in hand, and anyone who doesn’t blend into the background regardless of their camouflage.
If this sounds like the scent for you then, check out our PTSD Foundation of America Package. This set of Recon products will help you give back to those who gave everything. With each purchase we donate $5 to Camp Hope and the PTSD Foundation.
Are you a pirate? If so that’s incredible! What are you using to read this blog? Do eye patches really provide night vision? Where has the rum gone?

Shipwrecked is the treasure that every pirate was looking for.
Put away your dolls, gentlemen. This scent is for men who want a cologne that works magic.
Voodoo is made with bergamot, fresh lime, jasmine, sweet orange, and eucalyptus, a spellbinding blend sure to conjure up the good kind of trouble. Sound like too much? Trust us, you will be entranced by this witch's brew of complementary ingredients.
Voodoo is for the men who head to the bayou alone but always come back with company.
Fireflies flicker as far as you can see, the ground is cool and covered in moss, and the trees reach up almost as high as the stars that cover the night sky. You’re in your happy place, the great outdoors. There’s nothing like the freedom mother nature provides us, but our Woodland scent is our best try at capturing it inside a container. With outdoor aromas of cedar and patchouli this scent evokes a feeling of freedom, nature, and the open air.
If you’re an outdoorsman at heart, this scent was specially formulated just for you.
