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)

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.

What an idea!
Purchased

What a great idea for a cologne. No more bringing your glass bottle around and worrying that its going to break and ruin your bag, this stuff is great for the gym bag or your car. Bring it anywhere, it wont fail you. Vanguard scent is the way to go.

Solid product, a little cumbersome.
Sampled

For cologne's obviously the biggest thing is the scent. For this factor, its a great success. Love the scent, not over powering and very appealing. Unfortunately I was not a fan of the fact that it was a solid cologne as application is a bit trickier than a typical spray cologne might be. Makes it more time consuming to use and isn't something I would pick out if given the choice.

Light Scent for a grown man
Sampled

The scent is light and doesn't over power the senses. It's nice because it is only apparent when in close contact with someone (the way scent is supposed to be). The scent doesn't linger in a room leaving every one nauseated and doesn't linger on clothing like a spray cologne does. This is a product for grown men.
