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.

Warm and inviting

It's a great scent that is sweet, but very masculine at the same time. I love the strong tobacco with the amber undertones. Possibly a new go-to fragrance for me.

Fantastic Scent

This is a great scent and perfect for fall. I typically prefer scents with heavy spice and woodsy notes, but this does a great job of incorporating bergamot and vanilla into my typical scent profile. I love it.

Solid Fragrance

Nice cologne, a little fruity and spicy, holds on for a few hours, price is a bit steep but a good scent to have

doesn't last long - strong at first, then fades in an hour

this isn't a fragrance for me - I prefer ones that last longer than an hour and aren't as overtly pungeant - i sprayed it on me and it lingered in my office afterwards - on my skin, it dissipated quite quickly - the scent wasn't appealing at all to me
