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

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.

tahitian waters

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.

summer fresh

This is a crisp, lean scent perfect for summer. It contains many citrus notes run through with a touch of spice. Good for casual affairs.

A little bit smells so great

Out of all the English Laundry scents that have been sent to me in my box this one is by far my favorite. At first it sprays on very strong but after a few minutes dissipates and blends in so a little spritz goes a very long way which means the bottle will last a lot longer. The best way I can describe the scent is that it reminded me of something expensive my grandfather or father would wear ( I say this with complete respect and regard to the product). The scent is classic and sophisticated and timeless.

Best cologne ever

I am dying to get my hands on some more of this cologne. What a fantastic fragrance. It's light, it's not overpowering, it's unique, and yet it has this timeless, classic quality to it. Definitely a winner.
