Scent Profiles


*Now Available 

5 pack beard oil scent samples

These are the profiles of our active scents. 

All of the following scents are available in beard oil, beard balm, and beard butter form. 

Apple & Bourbon

When you think apple here, think apple cider. It's not a sharp sweet like that of apple juice, it's deeper, richer, thicker apple like you'd expect from apple cider. It's still sweet, just not as sharp. The usual sharp, high pitched sweet from the apple is turned down by the bourbon. In order to balance these two contrasting scents, something else needs to be added to give it a full balance. To do that, we added the slightest bit of clove and cinnamon. There's not enough of either of those to notice, they're just there for balance. This scent is popular year round, but we have to bring in extra during the Autumn season.

Birchwood

You're looking at kühn's first born. Well, ok, not exactly our first born. It is however, the first scent we officially released. Birchwood is very popular, especially with women. There is something there that seems to draw them in. Obviously men like it too, but this one gets the most positive reviews from women. They love the way it smells on a man. It's no wonder really; it's light, it's slightly sweet, but not too much. It's manly, but not too much. It's soft, but not too much. This is one of our most complex scents. With notes of cypress, lime, sea salt, oud, leather, amber, moss, birch, & sandalwood.

Whenever I'm asked to recommend a scent, this is always on the list.

Black Currant

One of our newest scents. We've playing around with the red and black currant berry. These berries have a incredibly unique scent. The blackcurrant berry, also known as black currant or cassis, has a sweet top note as you'd expect from a berry but a little muted like a cranberry, and with a woodsy base. Similar to Utah Summer, we incorporated a little grapefruit. You'll also catch some lemon, jasmine, and peach with a base combo of black currant. Its wildly popular.

Black Sea

Plums have always been one of my favorite fruits. The purple can look so cool and there's nothing better than a perfect plum. This was the inspiration behind Black Sea. We wanted a scent designed around plum. So to start comes a hint of bergamot, followed by the sweet and mellow scent of a ripe plum, then balanced with a beautifully rich and tame musk. The plum shines through, the musk is a perfect balance. 

Cedar & Amber

This is very much what its called. Imagine a big log of cedarwood smoldering on a fire. Still fresh enough that it doesnt smell burnt, but definitely smokey. Now take that smokey cedarwood and add just a touch of sweetness to it. The littlest bit of amber and a hint of vanilla. The sweeter notes really takes the edge off the strength that cedar can bring to a scent. It can be very overpowering, just not here. 

 Mahogany

Picture this.
You're sitting in a mahogany floored library surrounded by mahogany bookshelves filled with the classics. You catch a hint of musk but can't determine if it's coming from the wood or books. It's not so strong that it smells dirty or dusty. It hangs rather loosely in the air, like someone was smoking a pipe or cigar maybe 20 minutes ago. You also catch the faint scent of something sweet. Apple perhaps? 
You do a double take. You were certain the wooden floors and shelves were mahogany. So where did that cedarwood come from, or is it oak? Or maybe it's both, but there's definitely more wood than just mahogany. Ah, there's the sweetness you were picking up. An open bottle of bourbon not 10 feet away. Someone lined the glass of bourbon with apple slices. Apple slices? Is that a thing? 
All of that is the mahogany experience. 

Misty Mountain 

Utah Summer and Smoke are two of our most popular scents. Think of Misty Mountain as a blend of these two. The cranberry and grapefruit top notes of Utah Summer with Smoke bass notes of cardamom, musk, sandalwood, and vetever. It's our newest scent and already one of our most popular. 

Mountain Forest

This is how it sounds. It's what you would expect an early morning walk through a densely wooded mountain forest. That earthy smell you'll pick up if it's slightly damp a long with a hint of pine, sage, and basil.
Like a forest high up in the mountains, it never gets old.  

Mountain Whiskey

You'll catch a some bergamot, clove, soft musk, hint of leather, and patchouli. At the very end you catch the most subtle of orange peel, it's barely there, but just enough to give it a touch of sweetness.
It's one of our most popular scents. 

Red Currant

As you'd expect, red currant has some properties similar to black currant. The biggest difference? Red currant is more tame, not as harsh. Red currant is like black currant with the volume turned down. The volume gets turned down by adding to its bass note. By adding black tea and anise to the bottom, the sweetness that shines through with black currant gets muted by the rich earthiness of the black tea and anise. It's the perfect balance of sweet and earthy.

Smoke

When you think of smoke, don't think of a burning house type smoke, or the putrid smell of burning rubber, or that of a cigarette. When you think of kühn "smoke", think of the sweet smelling smoke of cherry wood or hickory. This has a lighter, sweeter scent profile like that of Utah Summer. You'll catch grapefruit in there too like Utah Summer, but with the addition of cardamom, birch, sandalwood, and vetiver. 

The Woods

The Woods is what it is because of the combination of cedar and sandalwood. However, keep your preconceived notions at bay. You'll probably barely notice either one. Thrown in there to help soften up both are a combo of vanilla and amber. This is on the lighter side of our woodsy scents. Whereas mountain whisky, mahogany, cedar & amber, and mountain forest are a little deeper, a little smokey, the woods is different.
If you like a little sweeter and a hint of vanilla, you should check this out. 
 

White Birch

I'm not a fan of pine by itself. Pine needs something. Piney scents in general can get old a little fast. 
Enter white birch.
In the beginning I was getting asked about pine and if we would come up with something for that. There are a lot of people who really enjoy pine, eucalyptus, minty type scents. This is our answer. 
You'll catch eucalyptus right off the top. As that fades you'll catch some cypress and pine finishing off with a smokey woodsy scent.

White Cedar

If you do not like the smell of cedar, move on. 

I repeat, if you do not like the smell of cedar, move on. 

This is a scent we made specifically for the cedarwood lover. Made for the person who could bathe in a cedar and never tire of it. Ok, that's probably going overboard a little bit. It is definitely for the person who prefers the smell of cedar over all other masculine scents. If you enjoy cedar, you will absolutely love this scent. You catch a hint of bergamot and vanilla at the top, deep rich cedarwood notes and touch of patchouli and oak for balance.

White Sand

You know how just prior you first imagined smelling a smoldering log of cedarwood? Replace that smokey cedarwood log and replace it with sandalwood. Except that log of sandalwood has been sitting out for years. Unlike a fresh piece of sandalwood that can very strong, this old piece of sandalwood has but a whisper of what once was. Can you smell it? It's just barely there. Now take a sip of that ice cold vanilla flavored cream soda. As you breath in the faint scent of sandalwood through your nose, the vanilla cream soda washes down the back of your throat. That is white sand.  

Utah Summer

Summer in Utah is hot and dry. I wanted to make a scent that reflected that; something HOT, something FIRE! So here it is, the essence of summer in Utah, reflected in this manly scent. You'll catch a spicy blend of grapefruit and redwood with a hint of cranberry. Followed up with a deep amber that comes out more woodsy than it does sweet. This is on the lighter side of our scents. It's sweeter, which was the point.
That's what summer is to supposed to be.
