Alfred Lane

Birchbox Breakdown

While the age of the gunfighter has come and gone, his daring swagger remains. This solid cologne is called Bravado for a reason: It features standout aromas like tobacco and leather—spiced with nutmeg and grounded in sandalwood—for a bold, woodsy scent that smacks of dusty trails and gunsmoke.

How to Use

Dip or swirl your finger in the waxy cologne and apply generously to pulse points, like your wrists and neck. Due to its compact size and solid consistency, this fragrance can be carried in your pocket for easy reapplication.

I attempt to always try and smell good. This product is easy to tote around in your pocket and has a great aroma.

it was ok
Purchased

It's a pretty decent product. I really like the smell, I just wish that for the price I paid it would be a little bigger. I understand its supposed to fit in your pocket but, too expensive for such a little amount.

Sexy!

So happy I bought this for my husband! It smells amazing! He loves the convenient tin- even prefers it to his other spray colognes.

Innovative New Cologne
Sampled

This scent is great. It's the rustic smell that I like and that works well with my body chemistry, too. The packaging is new and interesting. The sample size makes for easy transport.

Solid Cologne!
Sampled

Love this product! Definitely convenient when on-the-go. Much easier than spray cologne. Make sure not to leave in hot weather such as your car.

Extremely convenient
Purchased

I keep this in my shoulder bag. Scent is nice, but the real win here is that it's so convenient. The one thing is that it's going to get on your fingers, and without a thorough hand wash you are going to make everything you touch smell like it. Think water glasses, coffee mugs, the grapes you are snacking on, etc. Just requires some thought about timing.

Amazing!
Purchased

This cologne has turned me on to solid colognes from here on out. I receive compliments every time I wear it. Plus, this tin container is extremely convenient. You can take it with you everywhere you go.

Smells good, doesn't last the whole day
Purchased

I do like the smell of this one, though I wish it had a little bit more of a "woodsy" scent to it, but over all it's pretty good. Only complaint is that it just doesn't last the entire day.

Warm, inviting scent!
Purchased

Let's start with the travel aspect which I can't say enough about for my husband. Just toss in his carry on or leaves in his car. The description states a tobacco scent, which my sniffer did not pick up on. It is a great fragrance albeit it has little staying power hence the reason for 4 & not 5 star fragrance. The light scent is still great, not greasy and perfect fit for his pocket. Still a great purchase & I must say I have worn it a time or two myself when I have forgotten to put fragrance on & it is in his car. Great product, great scent, worth every penny!
