STRIKING OIL

GQ (Australia) - - STYLE -

As with so much else, Tom Ford set the ball rolling when he brought out a range of beard oils to match some of his ex­ist­ing scents. Pen­haligon’s did like­wise and now Burberry has joined the party with a com­pan­ion to its best fra­grance in years, ‘Mr Burberry’. With notes of cin­na­mon, tar­ragon and patchouli, ‘Mr Burberry Beard Oil’, $56 (30ml), pulls dou­ble duty by conditioning your face fur. Also on board is Vik­tor & Rolf with its smash-hit ‘Spice­bomb’ spawn­ing a scented oil. ‘Spice­bomb Pre-shave Oil’, $35 (30ml), is only avail­able from over­seas and de­spite hav­ing “pre-shave” on the bot­tle, also func­tions fetch­ingly on a beard. From an item that can only be sourced in­ter­na­tion­ally to one that is fi­nally here – Kiehl’s ‘Nour­ish­ing Beard Groom­ing Oil’, $45 (30ml), con­tains sal­i­cylic acid, which buffs away dead skin cells thus nix­ing the dreaded beardruff. The san­dal­wood and eu­ca­lyp­tus scent can also sub­sti­tute for your scent of choice. au.burberry.com; sel­f­ridges.com; kiehls.com.au
