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

Refreshing

Love the clean and refreshing smell this gives off! With the hints of coconut and balsa wood it makes me feel like I should be laying on a beach on an island somewhere.

Doesn't last long

It smells good when you first put it on, but quickly fades. No strong notes to really comment on. Good product for those who want a very subtle cologne. Have to reapply.

Really Great Scent

I received a sample of this in June's box. I've worn it twice now and I really enjoy this cologne. The scent is a bit hard to describe, but relaxed and exotic do it justice. I read some reviews that described this as a good summer cologne - I agree with those. The scent lasted a reasonable amount of time. I applied some in the morning and this evening (about 12 hours later), I can still catch of whiff of it. Not overpowering by any means, but definitely present.

More English Laundry "Not So Great"

Like a majority of the EL products this is mediocre at best. The scent is weak and doesn't last. It would be pretty decent if it lasted longer and the main scent was stronger. The actual scent is fairly common and smells like a generic that would be on the cheap end at a department store fragrance counter.
