A brisk white musk accented with rosewood and cedar.
.2oz Solid Cologne
Our homage to crisp sea air, Tybee opens with delicate top notes of amber and brisk musk that give way to an inviting blend of rosewood and cedarwood. The resulting aura is both clean and complex with a distinct atmospheric quality.
An ideal summer fragrance, this bright blend never strays toward the soapy, but instead remains the perfect complement to fresh air, open water and sunlight.
During the Industrial Revolution, Tybee Island was thought to have exceptionally clean salt air, and it soon became a favorite destination for the urban elite looking for a respite from the pollution-related issues they suffered in their city homes.

Of all the fragrances in the world, few if any are as universally loved as Sandalwood. Our fragrance Blue Ridge is meant to highlight everything we love about Sandalwood. The warm and woody fragrance is accented with top notes of fresh Sage and smooth Amber, to create a fragrance that is both familiar and intriguing.
Blue Ridge gets its name from one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world. Running from Georgia to Pennsylvania, the Blue Ridge mountains may not be tall or rocky, but they are stunning thanks to the beautiful forest that covers the countless peaks. The dense trees are responsible for giving the mountains their unique blue fog that stretches far beyond what the eye can see.
Like the mountains, Blue Ridge is most striking not because of a single element, but rather the confluence of each of the fragrances combined. The result is an unforgettable fragrance that you will likely want to make your signature scent.
A bright, refreshing blend of Pomelo, Coriander, and Green Leaves
.2oz Solid Cologne
Mahana is inspired by the hike to Papakolea, a green sand beach near the Southern-most point of the Big Island of Hawaii. Getting to the beach isn’t easy. It starts with a long drive through increasingly rugged roads until eventually, the road runs out and your hike begins. This is private land that the owner is willing to share with the public, but that means it doesn’t feel anything like a walk through a park. It’s an unmarked path with no clear trail to follow, and there are no rangers to guide you along. Instead, you let the coastline guide you, wandering through scene after scene of astonishing views. Eventually, it seems almost like Papakolea finds you, beckoning from above with its stony cliffs and sparkling sapphire waters.
It’s only as you get close that you notice the most unusual element of this faraway beach—the rich green sand. While the color of the beach is striking, it is the feeling of being completely removed from the rest of the world and surrounded by fresh air and natural beauty that makes Papakolea one of the most remarkable places we have ever visited.
Our homage to Mahana is a celebration of fresh air, verdant hills, and driftwood. With notes of Pomelo, Coriander and fresh green leaves, Mahana is clean, light and remarkably approachable. Perhaps our freshest cologne to date, the fragrance feels crisp and pure, like a cool breeze on even the warmest of days.
A fresh and woody blend of Atlas Cedar and Sea Air
.2oz Solid Cologne
On the coast of Oregon, 800 feet above the crashing ocean waves below, is the peak of Cape Perpetua. Though heavily forested with enormous evergreens, openings provide miles-long views of the ocean and its jagged coast. While the beauty of Perpetua’s forest would be noteworthy on its own, the fact that it is surrounded by the sea makes it truly spectacular.
Like its namesake, our Perpetua fragrance is noteworthy for the way two elements so unexpectedly intersect.
The cologne opens with a deep blend of Cedarwood and Mahogany, which is offset with clean and bright notes of neroli, bergamot, jasmine and amber. The result is a fresh and inviting fragrance that is somehow also sturdy and complex.
Aromatic tobacco complemented with notes of leather and rich vanilla
.2oz Solid Cologne
Now available in our permanent collection, Sterling was our all-time fastest-selling Limited Reserve cologne. Sterling is our homage to the rich and complex fragrance that is tobacco, and we spent more than a year getting the formulas just right. The aromatic blend opens with warm and sweet tobacco, which gives way to smooth leather and is completed with notes of dark amber and vanilla. The resulting fragrance is assertive but not aggressive, possessing masculinity without machismo.
Sterling was named for Mount Sterling in the Western Mountains of North Carolina. While not easily accessible, the hike to the top of the abandoned fire tower on the mountain's peak is worth the effort. We think that like the climb, your experience with Sterling will be well worth the wait.
A sophisticated blend of Australian sandalwood, rich leather and amber with hints of dried fruits and reeds, Shackleford creates an effect that is as rugged-meets-sophisticated as the man wearing it.
Shackleford Banks is a small North Carolina island famous for the wild horses that have roamed its beaches for centuries. Also known for its distinctive windblown trees that cover the island, this untamed paradise seemed like a fitting namesake for this warm and woody cologne. This distinguished fragrance speaks to man’s attraction to both the elemental and the refined.
A complex blend of Brazillian Pepper, Cedarwood, and Magnolia
.2oz Solid Cologne
What makes a man intriguing? It’s a delicate balance of a few things—a quality of character that is not entirely understood and at the same time not completely unfamiliar. He is confident but never brash, concise in speech but not terse, and precise with his actions but not meticulous. The same could be said for a great men’s fragrance.
Like its namesake, the fragrance of Palmetto is both warm and welcoming while carrying an air of mystery. The clean and citrusy top notes give way to pink pepper spice and magnolia flower, complemented with lingering notes of incense and cedar. This intricate fragrance is ideal as a Spring and Summer scent, but with its approachable complexity, it may just become your new year-round signature cologne.
An assertive traditional fragrance with green notes and light spice.
.2oz Solid Cologne
This modern Fougère is a rugged green fragrance featuring notes of lavender and fresh hay balanced by deep woods, vetiver, oakmoss and incense. The masculine fragrance is at once familiar and fascinating, confident but unpretentious. And, just like the man who wears it, Hatteras is certain to leave an impression.
Known as a sportsman’s paradise, Hatteras Island has a long reputation for its marlin-filled waters and natural beaches. While it’s a popular destination for vacationers and adventure-seekers alike, much of the island has been preserved from development, leaving it natural, wild and green. The storied island was our inspiration for Hatteras, our most classic fragrance.
Madagascan Geranium and Oak Moss complemented with notes of fresh water
.2oz Solid Cologne
Initially released as our first limited reserve offering, Clearwater has solidly earned a home among our permanent fragrance collection. The inspiration for this cologne started with our discovery of Madagascan geranium, a flower grown off the coast of Southern Africa that offers a rich, green fragrance. Unlike its Egyptian and North American cousins, the Madagascan variety of geranium has a robust quality that makes it a perfect centerpiece for a modern man’s cologne.
Notes of fresh water and oakmoss are complemented with hints of wood and clean citrus, combining to create a fragrance that reminds us of the Clearwater River in Washington state, rushing from the Olympic Mountains toward the sea.
