Having owned & used many of Fable’s oils and butters, I knew that I could count on the product to have great feel in beard. I first smelled the oil in bottle which smelled a lot to me like Beardbrand’s Lumber Yard in bottle. The oil in bottle smelled certainly like wood but did not have as much of the pine smell as the butter does in tub. The same remained for the oil in beard. I got mostly the wood smell out of the oil and less of the pine tree. As I use oil and butter combo in morning, the butter came in with an awesome pine smell. This is the first Fable experience where I feel as though the oil didn’t smell pretty much exactly like the butter. With all of this said, I don’t know if it was a blending issue or just the way it is meant to be... but for me I use both products in morning and have come to really like the partnership they have in beard.
