For a citrus scent that will last through countless summers, pick up Oxford Bleu in a sturdy 3.4 oz. bottle.

English Laundry

Birchbox Breakdown

As an old-world kind of gent, you might be partial to musky colognes, but sun and spring weather call for something a bit fresher. This fragrance leads off with a citrusy kick, which slowly gives way to a traditional English scent. The aroma morphs through several layers, following garden-fresh top notes with a woodsy base, for a sunny-day cologne that still goes well with a tux.

How it Works

While this warm-weather fragrance is grounded in citrus, an evolving set of aromas keeps things interesting. Top notes of mint and lemon turn to mid notes of iris and geranium, before finishing off with a woodsy base of sandalwood and vanilla.

How to Use

Spritz each wrist once, and if a little more oomph is desired, dab the sides of your neck.

Clean as ever

This scent is very classy and clean. I recommend wearing during the day. Seems slightly to casual for the dinner party but perfect to wear to your friends afternoon wedding.

heaven in a bottle

Great smelling fragrance. Lasting, staying power but not overwhelming. Great, clean scent for spring and summer. Birchbox's product scent description is spot on.

Slight sugar note that pleasant

I received a sample in my april birchbox and really enjoyed it. There's a slight sugary/sweet note to it that's enjoyable. The scent lingered for about 4/5 hours, which wasn't bad. You might have to reapply later in the day. Really a nice summer/fall scent.

Excellent Fragrance

I wore this cologne over the weekend and was constantly complimented on how I smelled. It's a crisp fragrance but not overwhelmingly citrus and it wears very well and very long. I applied before leaving the house and it kept throughout the evening. I felt invigorated when I put it on and it put a little pep in my step.

Really good for spring
Purchased

I ordered a full size of this almost immediately after trying this one. A great light scent for spring that holds all day.

FINALLY got my hands on a full size..
Purchased

This is one of the most even-tempered colognes I've worn. Everything else I've liked has ended up being slightly too strong or sharp or nice but way too light (what's the point of a fragrance if it's gone in 20 minutes?)

This sticks around, but not like something you'd smell on a guy wearing chains and a leather jacket with slicked back hair. It's unobtrusive, but it's there.

I could definitely imagine it wouldn't work well with some folks' chemistry, which is the key to any scent (I'm a recovering supersmeller / supertaster, so I notice how people smell - which is often more of a problem than an advantage) - but for me it seems to settle in nice but never disappear completely.

Really nice.

Oxford Bleu has a great scent. I find myself being very picky with colognes and scents in general, so I was pleasantly surprised when I smelled this. It's fresh and light. Great for dressing up or just hanging out.

Great Spring Scent
Purchased

I enjoyed this as a sample in my April box. It has a fresh scent and I received a lot of complements on it. A little bit went a long way and I enjoyed it so much, I ordered the bottle. Looking forward for it's arrival.
