For a warm-weather fragrance that will fit in your go-bag, pick up Oxford Bleu in a travel-friendly 1.7 oz. bottle.

English Laundry

Birchbox Breakdown

As an old-world kind of gent, you might be partial to musky colognes, but sun and spring weather call for something a bit fresher. This fragrance leads off with a citrusy kick, which slowly gives way to a traditional English scent. The aroma morphs through several layers, following garden-fresh top notes with a woodsy base, for a sunny-day cologne that still goes well with a tux.

How it Works

While this warm-weather fragrance is grounded in citrus, an evolving set of aromas keeps things interesting. Top notes of mint and lemon turn to mid notes of iris and geranium, before finishing off with a woodsy base of sandalwood and vanilla.

How to Use

Spritz each wrist once, and if a little more oomph is desired, dab the sides of your neck.

Alcohol Denat., Fragrance (Parfum), Water (Aqua), Lilial (2-(4-Tert-Butylbenzyl) Propionaldehyde), Linalool, Coumarin, Gamma Methyl Ionone, d-Limonene, BHT, Benzophenone-2, Citral, Citronellol, FD&C Yellow #5, FD&C Blue #1

A Favorite For Sure
Sampled

I am not a big cologne wearer, but when this came in the box, I just had to try it, and man am I ever so glad I did! Oxford Bleu has an awesome scent that does indeed go through several layers and all of them smell fresh! This will definitely be a full size purchase for me!

Warm, go-to summer scent
Sampled

This scent is very warm. It goes on smoothly and doesn't feel like it evaporates quickly. It has become my go to summer cologne. I get a lot of samples via Birchbox, but I'm actually thinking of buying this product 'cause it's much better than the others.

A perfect welcome back to cologne
Sampled

Having not been a huge cologne man in the past (nothing like college years to get you accustomed to aerosolized body sprays!), this was my first entry back into the *classy* scent world in a couple of years...and it was the perfect welcome back. The aroma makes me feel like I'm wearing a polo on a boat off the coast of Massachusetts in the best way possible.

I plan on getting this cologne and wearing it anytime I want to think of summertime and open water.

Fresh and classy

This is a great every day cologne. It is bright and noticeable, but not overbearing. I love this cologne because it is very uniquely scented and still affordable.

Fantastic cologne
Sampled

Out of all of the different samples I've gotten with the monthly Birchbox subscription, this is by far my favorite product. Great any time use cologne that isn't overpowering and offers up a great balance of cleanliness and energy.

What Was I Waiting For?
Sampled

I threw this in a pile when i got it in a Box a few months back. I finally used it this week and was blown away! What a great citrusy meets woodsy scent! It's great for work or date night, very flexible. Not overwhelming at all. And a little goes a long way; it's not overpowering, just long lasting. Loved It!

Great cologne

I thought this really complimented my current scents and was pretty cool that it seemed to change throughout the time that I was wearing it. I was really pleased with great scent and not overpowering.
