Alfred Lane

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s been a long time since a man could walk with a six-shooter at his hip. But while the age of the gunfighter has come and gone, his daring swagger remains. This solid cologne is called Bravado for a reason: It features standout aromas like tobacco and leather, which craft a bold, woodsy scent that smacks of dusty trails and gunsmoke. Keep it in your pocket for a boost of confidence whenever you need it most.

How it Works

If you’ve never heard of solid cologne, allow us to elucidate. This handcrafted fragrance uses beeswax as a base, which makes it easy to transport and even easier to apply. A blend of nutmeg, sandalwood, leather, and tobacco produce a woodsy-and-spicy aroma that will bring out your inner pistolero.

How to Use

Dip or swirl your finger in the waxy cologne, then apply generously to pulse points, like your wrists and neck. Due to its compact size, this travel-friendly fragrance can be stored in your pocket, and reapplied as necessary.

Smell okay
Sampled

The smell seems pretty average, and doesnt appear to last very long. However, the price is pretty fair so its not a bad deal.

A new favorite

Pleasant aroma, convenient size, durable casing. Perfect for a working man who works hard and sweats during the day, but doesn't want to smell like it. I'll be buying this and similar products in the future.

solid cologne

I didn't like the smell of this product it was too musky I like a fresh and clean smell or even citrus. I would recommend this to my dad.

1st time user

I love it ! Smells great I always get compliments at work about how good it smells I've had several people ask me what brand is it and they think the little box is cool I only wish it was a bit bigger. Overall 5 stars!

A little odd, but works great

The concept is a little strange to get used to at first, since I am used to spray cologne, but the stuff smelt fabulous and I think lasted throughout the day
