English Laundry

Birchbox Breakdown

We’re all for testing out the latest fashion trends (even if we are a little skeptical about the supposed return of pleated trousers). When it comes to cologne, however, we like a classic scent—like this new one from English Laundry. The evolving scent opens with fresh, citrusy notes, and settles into a woodsy mélange that’s never passé.

How it Works

Opening notes of bergamot, lemon, and lime give way to heart notes of jasmine and peppercorn and base notes of cedarwood, sandalwood, and amber.

How to Use

Spritz each wrist once, then dab your neck.

A tough choice

After encountering a barrage of fragrance samples over the past year, this one really stuck out to me. The smell was unique and identifiable, not too musky and a little sweet. I've been using it since December, and now I'm almost wishing I would've bought the smaller size. I still enjoy it, and I still use it every day (as I probably will until it runs out), but that's only because I'm committed to getting my full value out of a product even if I don't like it as much after a while. I still think this is in my top 3 favorite Birchbox fragrances!

Not the scent for me

This scent was incredibly strong and did not have a masculine odor to it. It might work for other people, but was definitely not for me (or my significant other).

Great Scent
Purchased

I don't usually write reviews, but this product made me want to write one. It's the perfect mix of a masculine scent, but not overpowering, also has a hint of sweetness to it as well.

I highly recommend it and it will be my everyday cologne for work.

Balanced and Clean

This is probably one of the most subtle and sophisticated scents that I have ever owned. It is easy to wear down at the beach or in the board room due it's simplicity and versatility. It is light and airy but has an earthy spice that blends well. This will be a favorite for a long time.

YES

This smells amazing! Literally everyone has given me a compliment when wearing this cologne. It also lasts all day and takes a while to wear off.

Sexy and Sophisticated

I don't know if it just works with my body chemistry, but I get nothing but compliments when I wear this cologne. All it takes is one spritz and I'm good for most of the day. At that rate it'll last most of the year, so despite it being on the upper end of cologne, the compliments alone are worth every penny.

Manly and Fantastic

Of all the fragrances I've gotten from Birch Box so far, this one is my favorite. As the description says, it's citrusy, woodsy, and quite frankly, my wife goes nuts when I wear it. So if you want your wife to go nuts over your scent, I heartily recommend Notting Hill.

Price is High, but a Decent Fragrance
Purchased

I've enjoyed all the English Laundry line that I've come into contact through my samples and this one is no different. Great scent but the price may be a little high.

We love English Laundry!

Pretty much every time we get a sample of EL we fall in love with it. My husband keeps hinting at getting him some. Long lasting clean woody scent. I love the scent on him. It mixes with his chemistry perfectly. Thank you BB!
