Wood Smells . . .Really Good

What is it about smelling like wood that smells good to people? Here's Campfire Cologne - you douse yourself with it by lighting a match, and you smell afterward like you've been camping for days.

  A video explains it all: It begins with a bearded guy who hikes in the wilderness, lights a campfire, deeply inhales and is one with nature – the epitome of manliness. Just when you think that he couldn’t be manlier if he tried, the same guy wakes up from his daydream and finds himself in a dull open-plan office, wearing a headset and staring at a pile of burnt sticks.

Created by Antler & Co, the beardy men’s perfume promises to be the ‘true scent of your best summer ever’ and ‘a nostalgic ode to the unending days of youth’. While it may not be the next best-seller at the perfume counter.
