For someone who likes skating and going to sweaty gigs, I also quite appreciate smelling nice. Nothing quite like trying to watch your favourite band and being distracted by the horrible odour coming off the person waving his arms next to you. So I was rather excited to try out the Eau de toilette that The Bluebeards Revenge sent my way.
They describe it as a natural spray and do not really give much more description as to what you can expect, this might be for the best as anything too flowery (be in in odour or written form) could have their targeted macho audience running to the hills. Lets face it, no rugby player wants to smell of roses.
The box and bottle are also designed to keep the macho ego at check. A blue box with a big skull and cross bone is not going to get any sniggers from the big burly men I generally travel with, in fact its just the kind of cologne they would be happy to use too. Aesthetic may not seem very important to you right now, but just wait until your in a lockeroom after playing your sport of choice, surrounded by your mates who would like nothing more than to take the piss out of your girly perfume bottle. With The Bluebeards revenge that wont happen.
Describing the smell is difficult. Its fresh, nice, outdoorsy?It last a good amount of time and does not irritate my skint. Basically, I like it and would continue using it! Really looking forward to reviewing some of the other products they sent my way.
Any other tips on how I can look manly whilst smelling good?
