This smells exactly the way I thought is would, which is something I can rarely say about beard care products. It's rich and smoky and the scent isn't overwhelming!
All the Ruddy balms feel amazing and work wonders for taming and shaping my beard precisely how I want. Headmaster is no exception. What sets it apart, however, is the scent; as soon as I unscrewed the cap, I was greeted with a wonderful and warm aroma. Slightly sweet and citrusy, there is a compelling undertone of coffee and vanilla that blends to produce a lovely leathery scent. It brings to mind images of wooden bookcases laden with great tomes and massive leather armchairs where one enjoys a good coffee early in the morning.
