Beard oil generally comes with two main ingredients. The first is the carrier oil, which is a plant or nut based oil such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil, or argan oil. The second is an essential oil, which is a very concentrated plant extract. Both have many health benefits for your beard and facial hair such as keeping the beard hydrated, conditioned, and nourished with vitamins and minerals. The scent comes from the essential oils, and it is generally a subtle aroma that smells like the plant itself. For example, a beard oil containing pine essential oil would smell like pine trees, which is a very common scent in beard oils. The scent coming from the essential oil would typically last anywhere between an hour for subtle scents, to a few hours for more potent scents.
Another factor that affects the duration of the scent is the amount of essential oil added. Usually just a few drops would allow for an oil with a long lasting scent. But some companies add more, to get a more potent and longer lasting scent. Many people prefer this, while others prefer a more subtle scent that does not last very long. It is all a matter of personal preference. So the scent in beard oil typically lasts for an hour to a few hours, depending on the kind and the amount of essential oils it contains.
We here at Arabeard have introduced a way where you choose the intensity of the scent in our beard oils. You have the option to choose form three different scents, which are light, normal and intense. The light scent is a subtle aroma, and does not last very long. This is especially for those who are sensitive to the scent, or who prefer to wear cologne and do not want the scent of the oil to overpower it. The normal scent is the standard amount, which allows for a nice, lasting scent. The intense version has a very potent scent that is generally strong, and would last for the longest time compared to the other scent variations. So if you are looking to specify the exact scent intensity you prefer, use our Scent’O’Meter. This way, you can adjust the scent intensity of the beard oil based on your own personal preference, and we would custom make the oil for you just the way you want it.
