The newest scent from Irish beard balm is called Cigar.
Over the years we have had lots of requests for a tobacco-scented beard balm but there were already a few people doing tobacco scents so I decided not to do one.
Well, one day somebody asked me not for a tobacco scent, but a cigar scent. And since I am an avid cigar smoker and own a cigar accessory company I figured I’d give it a shot.
We took our blend of Jojoba, Sweet Almond, and Argan oils and added several Ligero leaves from a farm that grows strictly cigar tobacco. We then took those leaves and oil mix and let them steep for 12 weeks. We then added hemp and coconut oils along with an all-natural Tobacco Absolute essential oil for an additional cigar scent packing punch.
We then sent out samplers and when I started to get the feedback, I knew I had a hit.
No two testers got the same fragrance. Though they did all agree that the scent did indeed smell like a cigar, they all got different smelling notes.
The smelling notes they got were Vanilla, Cedarwood, Smokiness, Clove, Coffee, and Cocoa. Though none of those scents were added to the balm.
As a YouTube cigar reviewer, I also watch many other cigar reviewers like Bob the Cigar Guy, Vik the High Desert Man, and Bryan Glynn, along with many more.
And there are cigars that many reviewers have smoked and reviewed and usually they all get different tasting notes or scents.
So when I got the feedback and read all the different smelling notes, I knew we actually blended a balm that is just like a cigar, complex.
This is a strong smelling product! This probably isn’t for the faint of heart. If you like strong cigars, you’ll probably like this product.
Can be had as a beard balm in a 2-ounce screw top tin or a beard oil in a 2-ounce aluminum pump bottle.
Irish beard balm blends coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, hemp oil, and beeswax.
The ingredients in Irish beard balm are all-natural and certified organic. The balms contain absolutely no chemicals or artificial preservatives.
Unlike most other beard balms on the market, Irish beard balm’s recipe doesn’t include cocoa, shea or other kinds of butter that are used to thicken balms. In testing, I found that butters built up in my beard over time, making it heavy. After extensive research and development, I discovered a way to make balms that didn’t use butters and left my beard feeling light.
All Irish beard balms use the same base ingredients. The only difference between the variety of options is the essential oil used to create each of the fragrances.
