Alfred Lane Vanguard Solid Cologne

While solid cologne has been around since ancient Egypt, it’'s long stood in the shadow of traditional liquid blends. That is, until today: Housed in a beeswax base, this quintessential fragrance is a fusion of old and new—a blend of citrus and spice that smacks of Rick’'s Café Américain. For an effortless transition from old-school cologne, you'’ll find no better starting point.

Perfect for frequent fliers!
Purchased

My son is quite the wanderer and is incredibly Eco conscience. This solid cologne not only has a very masculine earthly subtle scent, it's solid and light so it is a great addition to a backpack journey or a cross country plane adventure. My son is allergic to everything and this product has been wonderful. We'll definitely buy again!

Super easy
Sampled

I love the scent and man was it easy to carry around! The biggest up side to this cologne was that it didn't have the heavy alcohol scent most colognes have when you spray them on. Instead it had a very smooth and natural way about it. Almost like you just walked out of a shower scent.

Love it

Ps, keep it in a cool place. Not your car in a July afternoon...

Great for the go

This cologne is great to toss in a bag or your pocket and take with. Makes it easier than ever to smell fresh when meeting someone for drinks or dinner after work.

Easy to use and travel with, and smells fantastic
Purchased

I've never used a solid cologne before, but after using this one, I doubt I'll ever use spray cologne again. The small tin is perfect to carry with you in your pocket and the was is so easy to give a quick rub on the neck and wrists before going out. And of course, the scent if fantastic. I will certainly be ordering more in the future.

Great for what it is

I travel for work and having this with my is clutch. It's small enough to not take up too much space, but packs enough fragrance for you to walk out of your hotel room ready for whatever meetings await you during the day.

I love this stuff. I love the sample package because as a kid we used to get lip balm every Christmas in similar containers. Seriously this stuff is great. I like the solid cologne because it's simple to travel with and smells great.

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.

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.
