Burt's Bees Cologne (2007) {New Perfume} {Men's Cologne} {Perfume Review in a Nutshell}



Burt's Bees has launched a reportedly 100% natural oils cologne for men in its Natural Skin Care for Men collection, simply called Burt's Bees Cologne. From the ad copy,


"Exude confidence and appeal with this all-natural blend of essential oils. Fresh citrus oils of lemon and orange and energizing bergamot are blended in the warm, spicy depth of cypress and fir oils for a crisp, woodsy scent." .......

In the context of a perfume-aisle-to-street testing, it smells very citrus-y progressively deepening into a scent that is very much reminiscent of Jicky by Guerlain, in particular the sweet lavender impression, but with more apothecary herbaly nuances. It certainly does not aim to offer the same level of sophistication, depth and tenacity, but it is a reminder that Jicky (1889) was beloved by men first before coming to seduce the feminine public.

Ingredients are: "alcohol denat., citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit oil, citrus medica limonum (lemon) peel oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) peel oil, water, pogostemon cablin (patchouli) oil, citrus reticulata (tangerine/petitgrain) leaf oil, abies sibirica (fir needle) oil, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf oil"

The 2 oz. cologne is available for $25
