    Scent and Story

    Ronin simply translate to “wandering man” in Japanese. The Ronin was a masterless Samurai that roamed the lands, freely.
    Most Samurais have Lords. Some Samurai’s Lords get killed by the enemy during battle. The Samurai then becomes free of his duties.
    They can either become outlaws or join the good fight. The choice is now theirs. Ronins are rebels. Beardsman are rebels.
    We grow and wear our beards proudly, not concerned what others think. We are masterless warriors. 
    Miyamoto Musashi was a Ronin Samurai and the greatest known swordsman to have ever lived, who was never defeated in his 60 sword fights.~Keith Villanueva

    Introducing THE RONIN🇯🇵 Barbu's latest release is an exotic and unique profile with alluring complexities reminiscent of Japan's culture, landscape and philosophy.
    Similarly to other Barbu profiles, we take time to capture the essence of the culture we choose to represent through scent. The Ronin delivers a wild, balanced and smooth experience. Aromas of Japanese Hinoki, Bamboo and Cherry. But never assume that these are to be taken literally because this profile has many other hidden gems that make up this unique creation.
    Though I have always held an ambition to create a scent as this, the timing of The Ronin coincides with the inspiration I have gathered from my friend Keith, a veteran, martial artist and author. In our many talks I found myself reminiscing to my days of MA training and realized that this was the right time for me to undertake the creation of The Ronin.

        How to Apply

          Depending on your beard length place several drops of oil in the palm of your hand and rub both hands together. Massage the oil into your skin and out onto your beard in a back and forth motion. Rub the leftover oil into your hair or those faded out tattoos (if you have any).  Use our handmade in the USA, Barbu Beard Co. Walnut wooden comb and brush in a downward motion carefully not to graze the skin. If you need added hold use our Barbu Beard Co. beard balm to keep those little wild beard hairs in line. The Barbu Beard Co. bristle brush is also great to lightly shape your mane.

          One of a kind!

          This is just pure genius. First scent profile from Japanese heritage I came across and instantly got it. I was blown away. It's genius in a bottle and when I got my hands on the butter, it matched perfectly to the oil. This is an amazing product. Scent that lasts and a scent with each inhale just makes me go wow! Oh and feel in beard. Yes absolutely matches the scent in absolute enjoyment all day long!

          The Ronin

          I have been a long time fan of Abraham’s work. The Ronin is no different. I order a profile with a pre dispositioned idea of what it will be like. I always end up getting something very different and way better than I could imagine. Most companies are very literal with what is in the profile. Abraham keeps you guessing. The Ronin is outstanding. I’d recommend it for sure. A nice clean profile.

          Awesome Scent

          When I first opened balm and smelled Ronin, I immediately wanted to order more but it sold out quick! I put in at 5:30 am and it's now 7pm and I can still smell it, I love long scent durations, so glad this was not a one off and is going to be part of regular lineup as it will definitely be in my regular rotation. I think it's awesome Abraham.
