As a relatively new owner of a relatively new beard, I
often wonder how best to maintain its cleanliness. I
have had hit-or-miss results with various types of
shampoo, both beard-specific and otherwise, but
have had very little luck in finding something that
doesn't make the world smell either
flowery or like
Luckily, I fried up some slices of bacon for breakfast
the other day, and some got caught - of course - in
my mustache. I spent
the entire day in a haze of bacony goodness, and I'm
fairly certain that the odor was faint enough that I
was the only one (if not,
consider this an open offer to be inspired). It was
I do not wish to keep secrets from the world. Join in
my joy. Grow a hair or two, and keep it clean.

||I have a beard that is relatively shallow (more than
just stubble, but nothing like the normal depth of
hair on top of my head). I just use ordinary bath
soap to clean it, like I use the same soap on rest of
my skin. The rationale is, hair in the underarms
doesn't prevent soap from cleaning the skin, so
why should hair on the chin prevent soap from
cleaning that skin?
||Head hair, though, with its very high follicle
density and greater length, needs shampoo
(nothing fancy). I would be willing to use shampoo
on my beard, if it was long enough. But I never let
it grow that long.

||If just reading about bacon has me making a BLT Sandwich, smelling it all day would make me a crazed and slobbering fat man.
|| You could use a cartoon of the result as a trademark.
||one forseeable problem is your olfactory ability to detect
nearby bacon will be hampered by the constant bacon
||I just use shampoo to cleanse the whole lot.
Stubble is stubble is stubble, and flowery smelling babies ain't the worst thing to smell like, am I right?...
Have I shared too much again?
I wasn't the only one thinking it...
||No, you're right about the flowery smelling babies. I like
wash my beard and pop in a copy of Wizard of Oz and
watch the arrival to munchkin land until they all start
follow the yellow brick road. Really puts you right in the
scene smelling those flowery babies.
||It's very close to being a flavour....
