Birchbox Breakdown

Ernest Hemingway, exemplar of all things craggy and masculine, was the inspiration for this complex fragrance—but don’t expect notes of rum and tobacco. Featuring top notes of Italian bergamot, juniper, and black pepper, a heart of orange blossom, Florentine iris, and cinnamon, and a base of vetiver, vanilla, and yellow amber, this is a cultured cologne for a cultured man. Papa would approve.

How to Use

Spritz on your wrists and neck—with restraint, like Hemingway’s prose.

Denat. Alcohol 96° (infected with 5g of phtalate ethyle per liter), éthanol, diethyl phtalate, Fragrance, Limonene, Coumarin, Linalool, Eugenol, Citronellol, Geraniol, Cinnamal, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Benzoate, Water

Great manly scent
Sampled

I'm very picky about cologne and always looking something that smells masculine without being too woodsy. This is a strong cologne without being overwhelming. Great smell, great staying power. One of the few colognes that my girlfriend loved on me.

Pleasant

The pleasant, fruity aroma, that stays on the skin for a while and gives out a soft fragrance. I really like the fact that it is not strong and does not have that alcohol-like smell to it

Great smell for the office

This isn't a smell for a night club... it is very light, but very clean and professional, but still young. I love it!

Love This!

Just sprayed the sample and I really dig this scent. It seems perfect for early autumn and is something I would definitely consider buying again.

AMAZING scent

Another clean, crisp scent from Birchbox. Smells REALLY good. Perfect Fall scent. Can't imagine paying that much for (or any scent) though.

Great winter scent

The spiciness of this cologne makes for a great winter scent and something that I will absolutely consider buying for myself.
