The Faces of Beardsgaard • Fjordmist
Posted on May 20 2017
The faces of Beardsgaard series takes you inside the story and the world of each of our products ~ our real live regular clients, cut by the barbers of Beardsgaard, groomed by River Peak Apothecary, and on location, often just off the beaten path.
Journey to our realm, nerds. And make sure to catch the full video at the bottom of this post.
Fjordmist is for: Spring days after a rain when the early trees are in full bloom.
THE STORY OF OUR BEARD OILS
This is the story of Fjordmist.
THE MAN, THE MYTH, THE MODEL
Despite looking like he should be raiding hamlets in the fjords, Matt is in fact a nurse, so he errs on the side of healing as opposed to pillaging.
THE LOCATIONIf you live in our realm of Batavia by the river, you know well how many tucked away pockets of nature we have around these parts. Step a few feet off the paved paths onto the muddy ones, however, and you find a whole different world.
This is Les Arends Forest Preserve here in Batavia, a narrow strip of land between Route 31 and the river, but it manages to tuck a lot of beautiful hidden pathways into such a small stretch of preserve.
Pale misted air settles heavy about green and growing things, broad white sky above. Loamy earth, lapping water new life blooms in the flora and fauna, cacophony layered upon silence.
