…rise and shine….
There is absolutely no better feeling in the world than waking up lakeside in a tent while snuggling up to that special someone.
Maybe its the way the lake just looks like a sheet of glass, how the air feels, or perhaps its the serene silence of the wilderness…
Or better yet, the wonderful smell of timber from last nights fire still letting out a subtle scent that leaves you wanting to cook up some steak and eggs for breakfast while enjoying a fresh cup of joe from your makeshift french press.
If there is one thing that leaves a lasting impression of the great outdoors, it will undoubtedly be the beautiful smell of pine, cedarwood, or any other timber based fragrance that the towering pines, oaks, birches, and other woods naturally emit.
To make the transition from those serene weeklong camping trips back to your 9 to 5 gig a little less painful, we wanted to roundup some of the best woodsy colognes.
With a couple of quick pumps, these colognes will remind you of the great outdoors (minus the mosquitos of course):
