For a Mediterranean take on a bright, summery scent, try English Laundry Riviera.

Birchbox Breakdown

In the age of Captain Cook, a trip to Tahiti came with typhoons, hard tack, and a year on the open seas. Today, it comes in a bottle. This vivid, tropical fragrance is a slice of warmer climes, falling somewhere between a coconut grove and a seaside café in Bali. If you’re looking to swap out your musky cologne for something a little fresher, consider this your new summertime staple.

How it Works

Fresh, with a hint of spice, this fragrance adds a tropical twist to classic citrus cologne. Top notes of lime, bergamot, and coconut lead to mid notes of jasmine and ylang-ylang, followed by a sweet, mellow base of brown sugar and cedar.

How to Use

Apply a single spritz to each wrist, and resist the urge to rub them together (the pressure can muddle an evolving scent). For a slightly stronger aroma, dab the sides of your neck.

Alcohol Denat., Fragrance(Parfum), Water(Aqua), BHT, Benzophenone-2, FD&C Yellow #5, FD&C Blue #1, D&C Red #33

Great addition

This is a great addition to a collection of fragrances. It is a spring themed scent and is a fresh citrusy note that fades beautifully during the day. Not a long lasting scent but very pleasant during the day.

Small, Ineffective Sample

Smell is great, nice and fresh and highly recommended. The sample, however, came apart and spilled out after one use. Not a very professionally sealed design.

Smells like a day at the Beach

This is a wonderfully light scent, not a very overpowering cologne. Its like a manly day at the beach, its very beach like and slightly musky, very nice. If you like a tropical summer like scent this is the one for you.

Smells Familiar

An average scent that will do the job and is just different enough from some of the other "water" fragrances out there. Will this scent be around for years, probably not. But will it be a nice summer standby, certainly.

Clean, fresh smell

I liked the smell of the cologne. It has a light fresh summer smell. Not too heavy.

Sweet

This is a good change of pace fragrance, at least for me. I prefer woodsy or spicy scents, this is a very sweet and citrus scent that works well in the summer.

Another miss from English Laundry

I keep receiving English Laundry fragrance samples and I keep on disliking them. They just smell too generic and too much like chemicals.
