Birchbox Breakdown

As a tribute to Jules Verne, the father of science fiction, this fresh, maritime fragrance is a departure from the norm. Its vivid scent is inspired by the sights and smells of Nantes, the seaside port town where the author was born in 1828. And like Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days, this is a cologne that’s on the go, evolving from pine-y to peppery—minty to musky.

Sophisticated
Purchased

This is a citrusy fragrance with a strong pine note with hints of mint and musk. To be honest, I was underwhelmed at first spray, but once it started to dry down, it developed into something amazing. It is balmy and sophisticated and can easily become someone's signature scent because it is great for all occasions at any time of year.

Strong, all day strong
Sampled

This cologne has a sharp smell at the start and finish of the day. It's somewhat like citrus, but also a bit like a sandalwood. You will notice it all day as it sticks around more than most other fragrances I've tried. That's not bad, just know it will still be there when you come home from work or hit the gym in the evening. It's a bit much for me, but for those that like a sharp, long lasting scent, it could be a good choice.

This just wasn't a good one for me. It's not bad just doesn't really do it for me, you know?

This was one of my favorite scents that I have sampled from the BB. My girlfriend on the other hand did not actually appreciate it. I loved it.
