This fragrance boasts a depth of character not to be missed. Its complexity is derived from the striking diversity among its four key essences. Classical, nature-derived aromas work in symphony to create a contemporary re-imagining of what a man’s fragrance ought to be.
Strapping, woody Cedar Atlas and Cedar Virginia stand alongside the brightness and warmth of Ho Wood and the delicate, floral fruitiness Ylang Ylang.
It’s a life-affirming hike through the woods on a cool, dewy dawn; it’s a rowboat reaching the center of a lake just before sunrise; it’s walking through the turnstile past the crowd, down the subway stairs and onto the train a split second before the doors close behind you.
Williamsburg smells like personal triumph.
Why Name a scent Williamsburg?We love Williamsburg because if you’re sensitive, quiet or attentive, you can positively feel a surge of creativity everywhere along the neighborhood’s streets. The people in the area are passionate and driven. Often written off simply as hipsters (whatever that means), Williamsburg's residents are known for their fashion, lifestyle and sensibility that embraces and glamourizes the distinctly unglamorous, blending the best of the past with the cutting edge of tomorrow, perhaps only for the sake of irony or the novelty of juxtaposition. Either way, it’s inspired.
One of our guiding principles at Brooklyn Grooming is that “In order to achieve success, you must love what you do.”
We have always felt this idea is reflected in the community of Williamsburg.
I grew a freedom beard as soon as I entered Terminal Leave from the U.S. Army in May of 2013 and haven't looked back. It is no longer freedom beard, but it is part of my identity now. I take my beard grooming very seriously and have tried thousands of dollars of other products. I've watched many vlogs/reviews, read tons of articles on the subject, and I keep coming back to Brooklyn Grooming-Williamsburg scent products. I love how smooth and soothing the balm and oils are, and how amazing they smell. There is not a strong cologne smell, but subtle scent of awesome. I hate colognes and perfumes, so this was perfect. I have never had an issue with bad skin reactions or the products having the inability to do what it advertises. However, there have been two different occasions over the past year where the beard balms haven't been blended or melted together very well which left little balls of wax throughout instead of the usual smooth balm. But, BG was very accommodating and worked with me to solve the issue. I encourage anyone who has issues with the products to email and/or call BG and they will work with you. I highly recommend the Williamsburg scented products to any serious bearded maintainer.
I recently hugged a guy friend and noticed that he smelled really pleasant. I ordered this balm mostly for the fragrance but it has proven to soften my beard. I will continue to buy this balm as my beard deserves a little pampering. I wish the fragrance lasted longer but it seems to be gone by the end of my work day. A very small problem though, love the Williamsburg balm.
Placing a reorder, love the product. I made a mistake with my shipping and they had it corrected and respond back within minutes!
I am so glad that I read about Brooklyn Grooming years ago in Details Magazine. This beard balm is simply the best. I have tried others and have always been disappointed. Whether I have my beard shorter or longer, this product is always beneficial. It feels good, and I get complimented on the smell, in the only way a man should in my opinion. Up close and as if it's my own scent.
Something to give your beard that edge and ability to hold shape in the breeze. I highly recommend and I myself continually purchase, despite the international freight costs.
I also have this product to thank as it has taken my beard to a level where I am no longer called a hipster (This offends me as I am a seafarer and a beard is a damn rite of passage!). Instead I receive compliments and I am now compared to Ned Kelly(Australian history, if you care). Which I guess is better but I digress.....
I cannot recommend this product any higher.
