Imagine your cologne in a harden ‘waxy’ form (we call a solid cologne) – in fact, solid colognes are not a new concept and have been used since Egyptian times.

Alfred Lane is a unique line of men’s solid cologne created by its founders Archie Jeter and Rafael Hernandez to recreate a product that elevated the essence of the true modern man. Handcrafted in Chicago, Illinois, the duo paid extreme attention to the detail, vintage packaging and careful craftsmanship of their solid colognes available in 3 different scents. The cologne comes in a convenient little tin, perfect for travel or reapplying on the go, and is made with natural ingredients and oils to help to moisturize your skin. To apply, dip or swirl finger in cologne and apply to pulse points such as wrist, behind the ears and neck.

Bravado is all swagger. The woodsy, oriental scent is seductive and complex, with spicy notes of nutmeg, sandalwood, leather and tobacco.

Brio is pure vigor and vivacity. The mossy, woody fragrance is musky and warm, a blend of vetiver and spicy top notes.

Vanguard is for the man at the forefront, leading the charge. The spicy, sweet fragrance is refreshing, a fresh and fruity blend of sweet spice and woods.

 Alfred Lane is priced at USD17.95 each and available on its website and this list of stockist around the world.
