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.

Smelly, in a good way

I'm not much of a connoisseur or colognes. I do, however, enjoy smelling good. More accurately, my wife enjoys when I smell good and this cologne gets that job done.

Not for us

At first we were neutral about the scent but the more in ruminating the more it was terrible. Scent is so subjective though.

Love It!

Great smell and very masculine. It has rustic woodsy smell. I wish the same would have been larger. I was only able to get one use out of it. Most likely will purchase!

Love this brand of cologne

This scent is almost gender neutral, it has almost a sweet woodsy scent to it. Very relaxed smell that I could wear almost anywhere. Be aware that it's an almost feminine scent.

Awesome

Love the fragrance the two times I was able to wear it I got a lot of compliments will definitely be adding this to my collection, but could give a little more in the trial size ....

subtle and pleasant

This cologne is not overpowering, but still smells nice. I received a few compliments the very first time I wore it. Don't wear colognes often, but I will definitely fit this sample into my rotation when the occasion calls for it.

Nice scent, but a little too spicy

I have really enjoyed (and purchased) a number of BB scent samples (especially English Laundry), but as much as I liked this scent, it held up as a little too spicy for me (and my better half) I'll finish the sample, but stick to other scents.
