    Story and Scent

      This scent is inspired by Chris Burnett aka @chris_b_1121 one of our Barbu Barbudos and a huge supporter of the bearded community. During the production stages of this series of limited oils, Chris and I spoke often about what scent profile we wanted for his custom blend. Being based out of Virginia but having lived in many other southern states, the idea of capturing the essence of the "American South" became an obvious choice.   

      He said, peaches!, I said, OKAY! But in typical Barbu fashion it wasn't going to be just a peach scent, now that would be just boring! Chris had stated that there were very few peach profiles out there that he could enjoy. So it was on! I wanted to create such a unique and complex profile that he would absolutely love and enjoy above all the rest. If you ask him, we sure did.

      The Governor Scent is a complex and extremely unique profile that changes throughout the day. A long lasting scent that was created in homage of the American South. A part of our country with rich history and an ambiance of mystical charm. In The Governor you will find base notes of Cedar and Vetiver delivering a well blended woodsy and slightly smokey concoction. Interestingly, your nose will pick up a natural peach from the start, then it will take a back seat and only reemerge ever so often to remind you of its presence.  There are also small touches of earth tones and a citrusy top note of Bergamot and a few others to balance out the sweetness from the middle notes we added. This is not your typical peach profile, rest assured!

Carriers oils used in our products are: Organic Jojoba, Organic Argan, Organic Moringa, Cold pressed pure Grape seed, Organic Sweet Almond, Organic Castor and Vitamin E.


          The last thing you need is runny ink on your hands when you are applying your oil. All our product labels are oil and water-proof.

          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 left over 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.

            If I could pick only one, this would be it!

            The Governor has been my favorite scent profile since I first tried it. The vetiver and cedar give it a slightly woodsy and smokey profile with the added sweetness of peaches and bergamot. I get more compliments and questions about this one, than any other scent I’ve used so far. It’s been my go-to beard oil and I plan to keep this one on-hand for as long as its available.

            There's a new Governer in town...

            I have had my beard for years and have tried my share of beard oils. Some good and some not so good. I was recently in the market for a new oil and timing couldn't have been more perfect to cross paths with Abraham. After several DM's through Instagram and reading about Barbu's products on this website, I was convinced I needed to give his products a try. I couldn't be happier! Specifically this oil, The Governor, is simply amazing. The description of the scent is 100% accurate and it lasted for most of the day. But even after applying it to my beard I still couldn't wrap my brain around it's complexity. I can't describe it except to just try it for yourself. You'll be happy you did!

            The Governor - Gets My Vote!

            As usual, Abraham has created another winner with this oil. it smells exactly as described and feels just as great in beard as all of the other Barbu oils. Keep up the great work.

            Frankly my dear, I don't give a .......

            Yes, you read that right, and this scent will take you right back there when you use it. True southern style with the glorious smell of fresh peaches, cedar and all the other scents that take you back in time to where you and your belle are walking through the gardens... you in your tall, stiff collar and bow tie and your lady in a fancy ball gown.Whatever and where ever this oil takes you too it is a wonderful addition to your collection. Light as a feather and long lasting. Oh, and I cannot forget the personal touch Abraham puts into ALL of his customer service. Thank you for another awesome product!


            Abraham’s customer service is hands down great
