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.
