- Christmas tree scents
- pine scent
- aftershave splashes
I bought this with the same scented shaving soap. I usually do enjoy a strongly scented aftershave, hot this is STRONG. Overwhelmingly the biggest scent here is pine. Same scent as you would smell with the fake Christmas tree scents. I really can’t detect too many other scents in the splash because the pine scent is so strong. Coupled with the soap, it’s a good match. Wearing it throughout the day the scent remains fairly strong. Which is kind of nice wearing a mask, thinking about it. If the pine scent was a little more subdued I would give this 5 stars. But, it is fun for winter shaves as you smell very strongly like a Christmas tree. My hot take on it is I’ll use this throughout December and shelve it after Christmas/early January until next year. Great seasonal soap/aftershave combo.
My wife bought this for me cause she thought it would smell like Christmas... Soap is A+, lather's great and you get a lot of lather for such little soap that you use. All of BSG soap is top notch in my book. I did a recent post on Cap'n Dark Side. So same concept here regarding scent, take my scent review with a grain of salt. I think people have different pallets and sensitivities to smell than me. With that being said, the scent strength on this AS is strong, probably 9-10, and it last's for most of the day. The scent that I smell is pine, pine and more pine. After about 3 hours I could smell a sweet aroma, however, the pine still overwhelmed it. Does it smell like Christmas? Not to me, but could for you... again, all I get is the Pine note. What I did like about the Aftershave and the soap is the Menthol feel. Which it makes it feel wintry crisp. However, with that being said, I guess I'm just not a fan of overwhelmingly powerful pine notes. PS.. My wife said it did somewhat remind her of a Christmas smell but wasn't a huge fan of the scent.
As with other Black ship Grooming aftershave splashes, I find it difficult to express the medley of sent. That said, it is very nice! It feels great too. I will certainly purchase again in the future. Kelly, the owner, it’s great! Eager to help and I love getting free samples with every order!
