With energizing citrus notes, this cologne doubles as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.

Birchbox Breakdown

If you’re rocking a fragrance inherited from your old man, or relying on a goopy deodorant stick for your olfactory game, it’s time to mix things up. Ease into the 21st century with this subtle, summery scent from Motor City designer John Varvatos. It’s the fragrance equivalent of your favorite jeans and a just-washed tee: classic, cool, and easy-going. And with this gift set, you can make sure your scents never clash by staying classy (and consistent) with cologne, aftershave gel, and hair and body wash.

How it Works

This fresh-from-the-shower scent blends Sicilian clementine, mandarin and tangelo with woody base notes like kephalis and Georgywood. There are hints of thyme, too, and musky serenolide. The gift set, which comes in a plush tan dopp kit, includes a 4.2 oz Eau de Toilette, a 2.5 oz Aftershave Gel, and a 2.5 oz Hair and Body Wash.

How to Use

Use the all-purpose shower gel to wash hair and body, and the aftershave gel to lock in moisture following a shave. As for the cologne, just apply a quick spritz to your pulse points (inner wrists, neck, behind the ears).

Thank u Birchbox for introducing me to this fragrance through a sample. The hair product and shaving cream alone will leave u smelling great all day long. The gift set is great and I use the small bag every day to keep all my high end products in one place.

Make your man happy!
Purchased

I purchased this for my husband as a gift (after he received the cologne sample in his Birchbox and LOVED it), and he was thrilled with the whole package. He loves everything in it and the bag was stylish for his travels. This was a bargain, as it was cheaper than buying just the cologne by itself. A very manly scent, woodsy and tough....very sexy, too.

Impressed with the entire package
Purchased

I love this Varvatos fragrance and was thrilled to try the body wash! (haven't used the aftershave yet) The kit worked well for some of my travel products.. I wish there was a zipper pocket though. I really like the look and especially the durability of the kit though! The size bottle of cologne was bigger than I expected.

A Little Too Light

Not exactly my go to scent for this Winter but it is still a pleasant cologne. Perhaps it could work for me in the summer, but with several applications throughout the day. I personally prefer something a little bolder and long-lasting.

The Man of the House Loves It
Purchased

My boyfriend loves this set. The scent is great (and girlfriend approved) and the manly body wash is a great change from the store bought stuff for scent purposes. I will say the travel case was a little less than I expected. It's a soft case but I was hoping it might be made of a sturdier material or even a thicker material. Other than that the cologne looks so pretty in it's wicker bottle and the scent is great to cuddle with at the end of the day.

Great gift set
Purchased

I love the scent of this product set, it is fresh and manly at the same time. The aftershave gel and body wash feel good on the skin and the travel bag is a nice extra that has a very sturdy build.

I was convinced to buy this set after using the sample of the cologne that came in the November Men's Birchbox.
