Ruffians Fragrances

Ruffians Fragrances
After much time, effort and deliberation we are excited to launch our range of exclusive bespoke fragrances which will be available online and in store imminently.
 
As with all of our products, our award winning team of barbers had a major input in the development, even visiting the lab to select and refine the key ingredients which form the final scent.
 
The result is a five piece collection which we feel perfectly reflects the locations that we call home. From the street vibes of Shoreditch to the crisp sandstone smells in Edinburgh, our fragrances work by pairing complementary notes to evoke a feel and scene of place.
 
Here we take a brief look into each option and what makes them unique.
 
 

Edinburgh


The first Ruffians shop and our original home, we knew how important it was to capture the essence of this amazing city.
 
We wanted to reflect the historic and refined nature of Scotland’s capital to make you feel as if you were amongst the sandstone buildings and breathing in the sea air, even if you are on the other side of the World.
 
The result is a fragrance that is at once both refreshing and classic, with a natural edge.
 
Notes
 
TOP: Sea Breeze, Bitter Citrus Accord + Hops
MIDDLE: Geranium, Lavender, Mossy 
BASE: Dry Amber Accord, Driftwood, Patchouli, Basalt Rock
 
 

Covent Garden


Our first flagship store opened in Covent Garden some eight years ago. Since then it has become one of the country’s most renowned barber shops, winning numerous awards.
 
The shop is located on a street directly behind the World famous Apple Market, where traders have been peddling their wares to discerning punters for generations.
 
We wanted this to be reflected in our signature Covent Garden fragrance in addition to the glitz of the areas famous theatres and restaurants.
 
Notes
 
TOP: Grapefruit, Hint of Lemon, Pepper Oil Black, Spicy Accords of Clove & Cinnamon 
MIDDLE: Patchouli, Sweet Resins, Tabacco
BASE: Amber, Musks, Dry Woods, Vanilla
 
 

Shoreditch

 
Our East London outpost is situated in an area renowned for its edgy, urban appeal. Where niche boutiques rub shoulders with some of the world’s best street art and cocktail bars.
 
Our aim was to create a scent that captured Shoreditch’s unique laid back and creative vibe and effortless cool.
 
To achieve this we grouped a varied range of ingredients which are instantly recognisable on their own, but when combined are quite unique.
 
Notes
 
TOP: Roasted Coffee Beans, Juniper Berries
MIDDLE: Tobacco, Patchouli
BASE: Bay Rum, Sandalwood, Tonka Beans
 
 

Marylebone

 
An area that has long been renowned as being the Capital’s home of refined sophistication, Marylebone is aspirational.
 
As such, we wanted this fragrance to be classic and not overstated, but also chic and elegant. As timeless as the location itself.
 
To achieve this we have balanced heady spice with florals and a hit of vetiver for freshness to finish.
 
Notes
 
TOP: Cardamom, Cinnamon, Coriander, Cypress 
MIDDLE: Violet, Geranium, Sage
BASE: Vetiver, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Labdanum, Tolu Balsam
 

 

Soho

 
The final piece in our collection reflects arguably London’s most iconic destination.
 
For many a year visitors have flocked to Soho for its array of eclectic shops and hedonistic nightlife.
 
From Carnaby Street in the Swinging Sixties, the numerous great artists who’ve called Dean Street home to neighbouring China Town, Soho is a real melting pot.
 
There’s never a dull moment here, but somehow it just works.
 
We have aimed to capture this in our signature scent, which encompasses a cocktail of exotic ingredients which we feel marry together perfectly.
 
Notes
 
TOP: Mandarin, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, Clove, Cardamon, Saffron, Nutmeg 
MIDDLE: Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Geranium, Rose
BASE: Sandalwood, Labdanum, Cashmere Musks
