Gear review: Solid Cologne

e3a6e79a-5a2e-46d1-84d2-f5af2ad3b9ef

“I'm not a bath man myself. More of a cologne man”. Not our words, but the words of Homer Simpson. And when it comes to camping trips, he has a point. We’re not advocating a total neglect of personal hygiene, of course, but it is acceptable to be slightly less meticulous than usual. However, that does mean you might want to “freshen up” (ie mask the pong) every so often. Solid Cologne’s fragrances are perfect for camping, because – as the name would suggest – they are solid rather than liquid, so there’s no chance of spillage. Rather than a clunky, oversized glass bottle, it comes in a compact metal sliding tin that can easily slip into your pocket or wash bag so it’s pretty convenient too. So how does it smell? Well the blurb says the Alexander fragrance features “the scent of fresh grapefruit, leading to the heart of aromatic bay leaf and jasmine”. It also includes “notes of patchouli, oak moss and ambergris”. We obviously don’t know what any of that means, but we can confirm it does smell nice.

Expect to pay £14.99
