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

English Laundry

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

Nice

I did not jump for joy over this scent. There is nothing wrong with the scent, it is quite nice but just smelled a little too citrusy for my taste.

Nice.

If this is supposed to smell like laundry, it fails miserably. It does smell nice though. It's my preferred fragrance right now, when I go somewhere fancy.

Fresh, Summer Smell

I like this but I like the English Laundry Signature better. Fresh, summer citrus cologne. Not to strong of a smell.

Fresh and clean smell, but still masculine. Nice to wear to the office or out. After getting the sample, I bought the mixed set.

Nice!

This was my favorite sample in my July box. My wife loved the smell and I have to admit that it was a nice change from my normal cologne. I am definitely considering the full sized product.

Great smelling cologne. Not too heavy or musky. It almost seems to smell better as the day goes on. Highly recommended.

Great cologne

This is some pretty good smelling stuff. I like the spicy notes, but it can be a bit much sometimes, (depending on my mood). And the price is keeping me away.
