I was really anticipating this combo when I saw the scent profile. Once I receive it and smelled the oil and balm, I knew this would be one of my favorites. The oil felt good in beard. It had a wonderful smell. The balm smelled the same. The balm was very easy to get out. I only wish the scent would have lasted all day. Not a deal breaker by any means. It lasted about 5 hours. This did not discourage me because I then ordered another combo.
As always this is a great quality oil! However the scent profile just didn't appeal to me TOTALLY A PERSONAL OPINION NO REFLECTION ON THE OIL. It reminded me of a whisky I use to drink in a past life and just wasn't what I was looking for. That being said, I gave it to a friend of mine who loved it and to him it came off as a different profile so like all other scents it is based on the individual.
