Barbershop: The Story Behind The Fragrance
Today we are talking about our newest seasonal fragrance, Barbershop!
Taking a whiff of Barbershop is like stepping into a time machine transporting you to that iconic Barber experience of a soothing hot towel shave, light floral notes, wall to wall hardwood, and a refreshing splash of cooling aftershave to send you confidently on your way. It's like a stroll down memory lane with the unique scent of freshness and familiarity, with just a hint of nostalgia.
All across the country from big cities to small towns, people gather in their local barbershop not just to get a haircut or beard trim, but to connect with a community.
And this isn't some new trend. Barbershops have been around as early as 296 B.C. when Greek men used to gather to get their hair and beards trimmed while debating current events.
The trade was formally introduced in the US in the 19th century, and it's since exploded to cover every nook and cranny in this country.
Movies have been made about Barbershop culture, and if you have your local spot, you know what I'm talking about.
It's a place you can come together with men, have a drink, catch a game, and just talk shop.
We've been in barbershops...lots of em'...hunting for the best shop and barber to refer guys to.
And what we've noticed along the way is that when you crack open that front door, they share a familiar smell that we've all grown to love since we were kids.
Smell scientifically triggers memories more than any of our other senses.
And when I smell barbershop, I'm instantly transported back to memories as old as Saturday mornings as a kid getting a haircut and some ice cream with my dad, to as recent as the day before my wedding. And some amazing memories in between.
This scent is tied to some of the most important memories of my life, and many of us here at Live Bearded which is why it was the inspiration for our newest seasonal fragrance.
We all know that feeling after getting a fresh cut. You walk out of the shop with your chest up and head high, ready to conquer the world. Well now you can get that iconic barbershop experience in a bottle. The main notes are:
Talc, Green Aloe, with a hint of Sandalwood.

It's clean, bright, fresh, and soothing, and has phenomenal cologne like notes that bring out a dapper and sophisticated feeling when I wear it.
Here's a couple reviews on Barbershop.
Barbershop reminds of an era where men were Gentleman. 3 piece suits and combovers just to walk the streets. A clean, freshness with a touch of opulence - reminiscent of a bygone era
Barbershop reminds me of that fresh-cut feeling of empowering confidence. It makes me want to go out and get noticed!! The perfect combination of freshness and rejuvenation, the kind of smell that brings back the feelings of excitement and nuance of getting a new crispy cut.
Now, we aren't the first to attempt a Barbershop inspired fragrance. But we approached it differently than anyone out there and these notes hit differently than anything you've smelled before.
If you're looking for a killer fragrance that will have you stand out from the crowd, Barbershop is for you.
