When you’re ready to break out of your comfort zone, turn up the volume with the mossy, spicy kick of Alfred Lane Brio.

Alfred Lane

Birchbox Breakdown

While solid cologne has been in use since the days of the ancient Egypt, it’s often stood in the shadow of traditional liquid blends. That is, until today. This quintessential fragrance from Alfred Lane is a fusion of old and new, with a compact design and a timeless aroma that smells like Rick’s Café Américain. For an effortless transition from old-school cologne, you’ll find no better starting point.

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. Spicy and citrus aromas produce a fresh, musky scent that harkens back to a simpler time.

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.

Beeswax, Jojoba oil, Shea butter & Fragrance (essential oil)

Smells great and easy to use
Purchased

Vanguard is my second favorite scent. Very easy to use and easy to store. Great packaging and great price. I own all three scents.

A Must Try !
Purchased

I ordered this because I had never tried solid cologne before. I pleasantly surprised to say that I am a big fan and will work it in daily. The only thing I found wrong so far is that the scent (which is great by the way) doesn't last very long. This ends up being alright because the cologne is so portable, it can be applied multiple times each day for a refreshed scent.

best way to do cologne

I am a huge fan of wearing cologne. Never have I found a way so easy and unobtrusive to apply it than this solid cologne.

I purchased this for my boyfriend because he had been wanting to try it. We both love the scent but it does not last long AT ALL.

Great in gym bag
Purchased

This little product packs a big punch. Instead of carrying around a full size of cologne I opted for this product. It is lightweight on all accounts. So I didn't feel like I was overdoing it. I enjoy this as a new addition to my gym bag. It won't spill all over .

Nice and calm

Love the smell. Offers a nice and controlled smell without the awful spray and challenge to breath. Love it! Would have a five of five if cheaper in price!

Great product. Great smell. However, be smarter than me! Don't leave this in your hot car! My car does smell fantastic though!
