When you’re ready to break out of your comfort zone, turn up the volume with the mossy, spicy kick of Alfred Lane Brio.

Alfred Lane

Birchbox Breakdown

While solid cologne has been in use since the days of the ancient Egypt, it’s often stood in the shadow of traditional liquid blends. That is, until today. This quintessential fragrance from Alfred Lane is a fusion of old and new, with a compact design and a timeless aroma that smells like Rick’s Café Américain. For an effortless transition from old-school cologne, you’ll find no better starting point.

How it Works

If you’ve never heard of solid cologne, allow us to elucidate. This handcrafted fragrance uses beeswax as a base, which makes it easy to transport and even easier to apply. Spicy and citrus aromas produce a fresh, musky scent that harkens back to a simpler time.

How to Use

Dip or swirl your finger in the waxy cologne, then apply generously to pulse points, like your wrists and neck. Due to its compact size, this travel-friendly fragrance can be stored in your pocket, and reapplied as necessary.

Beeswax, Jojoba oil, Shea butter & Fragrance (essential oil)

Love solid cologne now!
Purchased

Before I bought this product I had never used solid cologne, this is now in my work bag now. So easy to reapply any time there's a visit or one of my dm's comes through. Not overpowering, just enough to smell fresh. Great product, good size, easy to slip in your pocket on your way out the door.

Long lasting.

It doesn't have a smell that when you walk in a room everyone knows you are there, but it's a subtle one that only you and ones that you let close know you have on.

Don't leave home without it.
Purchased

I work long hours and a lot times I head straight out to bars or restaurants to meet friends. So it's great to have something like a solid cologne in my pocket to keep me smelling fresh. I haven't used the other scents I just order them, but the vanguard smells great.

Greaet scent, but not long lasting
Purchased

This is a great scent, I truly love it, but it really doesn't last long.

I know you can bring it with you due to the small size, but you'd have to apply it a few times during the day and at that rate you'll have to keep reordering it.

not bad
Purchased

I like the scent but not totally sold on the solid cologne concept. I don't feel like it lasts as long and I don't like that the scent gets on your fingers... I find myself trying to wash it away so everything I touch doesn't fall victim.

Great smelling, very subtle
Purchased

The idea of a solid cologne is novel to me, so I purchased this product out of sheer curiosity. I've used it for the past couple of days, and I have to say I'm a huge fan. The scent is subtle and it smells REALLY good. The portability is also great. Don't let the small size fool you, though. I've barely left an imprint on this thing since I got it.

Quality stuff!

Super simple subtle scent swoons seductively. I love this cologne, mostly because I don't have to spray it. Dab a few thumbfulls onto the neck and behind the ears and I'm smelling nice all day. I very much approve.

new!!

I never tried a solid cologne. The scent is good and clean very herbal. It did not last very long but it was easy to reapply. The little container fits perfect in my work bag

Manly scent
Sampled

The scent of this cologne is manly and herbal. I had never used a solid type cologne before, but liked how I had more control over the concentration of scent.
