Birchbox Breakdown

While musk is often considered the quintessential cologne, this woodsy, spicy fragrance endeavors to prove otherwise. Designed by legendary perfumer Dominique Ropion, it plunges from light citrus top notes to a fiery heart of sandalwood.

How to Use

Apply a spritz to each wrist, then dab your neck. Avoid applying to excess, lest it clash with your date’s own fragrance (you natty dog, you).

Alcohol Denat., Profumo/Parfum, Aqua, EthylHexylMethoxyCinnamate/Butyl MethoxyDibenzoylMethane/ EthylHexylSalicylate, Linalool, Limonene, Eugenol, Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Citral, Isoeugenol

cologne

This cologne is probably the worst smelling spray we have gotten in our birchbox. It had a very spicy strange smell to it. It was. brutal.

Favorite Mens Cologne
Purchased

This is one of my favorite mens colognes! I have a hard time with finding a cologne that I like for my husband because so many smell cheap and give me a headache. In all the years him and I have been together he has worn Issey Miyake because it is the only one I like, that is until he got a sample of this in his Birchbox. The smell is so different from any other cologne, it's spicy and sweet, very masculine in my opinion and It smells very rich, the way I would imagine a southern gentlemen did back in the day lol. I also love that the smell is never over powering yet still prominent, he puts some on in the morning before work and when he gets home 10-12 hours later I can still smell it. I just ordered him a full size for Father's day.

Great, bold masculine fragance

It's got all a man's frangance needs: woody (cedar), sweet musk, mystic sandalwood and a bold accord of tobacco leaf (do not think of tobacco smoke, which is the complete opposite of matured tobacco leaves) and some other ingredients I cannot pipoint but make for a wonderful statement to any room you walk in. This frangance is NOT for the timid, discreetly introverted man. It's quite strong (concentrated as an old-swchool proper perfume-grade concentration), so be warned of using a *tiny* little whiff specially if walking into the office or any other indoor location during the daytime. Highly recommended even if it's not for everyone. Also, not designed to project any youuthfulness, but quite the opposite: This is for alfa males erring on the senior side. If you want to project an older, more serious side of yourself, this is the perfume to wear with a proper suit.

MOSTLY SANDALWOOD

Hmm...honestly this smelled very generic like when most perfumes get old and start to smell the same. Sandalwood was the defining scent, I didn't get any citrus in the top note or base note after it was on for a while. It's also very strong, not the thing if you want to be subtle with your scents.

Spicy and sweet... smells better on her.

It's not an offensive odor at all. It's just more perfume-y than cologne-y. Probably a better fragrance for her more than him. A little spicy and a lot sweet. I wish it had more wood and less sugar!
