My first try with Fable was with Captain Red. I like the idea of what it would smell like, and the company is recommended by DanC so gave it a try.
Received the order in about a week and was carefully packaged. The balm is a very good quality and feel and is generally nice.
I rated it 4 stars / very good. The reason its not a 5 is because of 2 reasons. 1. The smell is decent but not one that makes me say “wow”. I was expecting a piña colada or something similar, but this balm is muted and the smell dies after an hour. 2. The labeling is a little underwhelming. While the theming is cool and the artwork is nice, the actual print/label quality on the tin is a little amateur.
The balm quality itself is very good. Nice hand & beard feel, control and applies great. Some minor tweaks and this could be great.
I will continue to try other of the balms to see if I like one better, but give them a try.
