The Scent

Every few years, something completely and utterly cool hits the market. Something so different and special that you just have to have it. A game changer so to speak. Our favourite dudes from Brooklyn Soap Company in Hamburg have revolutionised men’s care in our neck of the woods with their natural grooming products. Plus, they put all their heart in it and did it in style. All products – whether beard care products, shampoos, grooming clay or body wash – are free of bullshit ingredients and smell wonderfully manly. Each one offers a different little journey into the land of herbal scents. But what scent brings everything Brooklyn Soap Company stands for together and sums it up in one little bottle? For their first very own fragrance they put their noses together with perfumer Mark Buxton and came up with the ultimate olfactory expression of new urban masculinity. Elegant and woody – with aromas of mandarin orange, nutmeg, absinthe, myrrh, amber and musk it spreads a hypnotizing fresh and spicy-floral scent. Instead of smothering you in a heavy cloud of essences, it surrounds you with an almost magical aura. Or to put it in Mark Buxton’s words: „It’s a fresh, spicy, floral, woody, musky fragrance!“ The bottle is entirely made of birch wood. The name „The woods“ is a tribute to the eponymous bar in Brooklyn, a place the dudes would often meet during the first chapter of founding Brooklyn Soap Company. The 50ml bottle of Eau de Perfume costs 69 Euro and can be pre-ordered at, orders will be shipped mid October. We got hold of one the very first bottles and are giving it away to the most dapper chap around. Send an email titled MY NECK OF THE WOODS to Oh, and needless to say and just like all other Brooklyn Soap products, The Woods is made of all natural ingredients. A new kind of manliness we love.
