Guide to Solid Cologne
Everyone is familiar with the classic cologne bottle, some weird-shaped bottle with an exotic-sounding name. It has its time and place, but not the easiest to take around town as life happens. Cheap spray colognes lose their scent within the first hour, whilst quality colognes will cost upwards of $100 so they can be steep on your bank account. When using a spray cologne the scent will fade throughout the day, slowly losing it's potency.

HOW IS SOLID COLOGNE MADE Rather than using alcohol, solid colognes are usually made from a natural wax like beeswax or shea butter as the medium for the fragrance. We have teamed up with some of Australia’s best fragrance makers who have used a complex blend of botanicals and other ingredients to perfect our cologne’s scent profile. In our Signature scent there is over 10 ingredients that make up it's scent profile! During this process, it's critical to find the balance between a strong scent profile, whilst ensuring the cologne will feel easy to rub into your skin. HOW LONG DOES SOLID COLOGNE LAST? Most solid colognes typically last somewhere between 4-6 hours. This is much better than cheap aftershaves, but it won’t have the typical scent projection of a high-end spray cologne. Because the wax cologne is rubbed onto your skin it can be smelt for longer than alcohol based colognes, and due to its portability can be re-applied throughout the day. HOW IS SOLID COLOGNE APPLIED The product is then gently rubbed onto the skin, usually at the pulse points such as the neck or wrist. By using these warm areas, the scent is activated throughout the day and also starts to subtly blend with your own natural musk. When applying a small amount you can use two fingers to rub on top of the cologne in a circular motion, until you have enough to apply. When applying more liberally you can take a small piece to cover top of your finger, then apply around the neck and wrists.
