Great English take on cologne--light, well behaved, gentlemanly, this is perfectly in line with the St. James/Jermyn Street ethos: quality, tradition, value. A good warm weather scent that tends to run at the first sign of cold weather (which is most of the time in London!), this has a great extensive array of shaving and grooming products. When you are slumped in Lord Byron's chair awaiting your pick me up (as one often finds oneself when in the D. R. Harris establishment), this is just the thing to refresh and revitalize you, as sure a cure for what ails you as Byron's favorite hock and soda water.
An enjoyable, classical style Eau de Cologne with good longevity for the class, at a very appealing price. Very clean, fresh and uplifting, but nothing groundbreaking (fairy nuff, that's hardly to be expected in this genre). One for fans of Acqua di Parma original cologne, Roger & Gallet's Extra Vieille etc. Ideal for use when wearing one's cravat and blazer to one of Her Majesty's garden parties.

A pleasant English Eau de Cologne commencing witha nice citrus impression with a wood and a good fougere note. It is discrete, classic, safe and never intrusive. Sillage and projection are not very good, but that is fine for me as a work scent Longevity is about 1 1/2 hours on my skin, which is on the top end of what I get from Colognes.
A heavy lemon drop opening that is almost too much to bear, but subsides and smoothes out after around 10 minutes. The lemon blends with fern and a little musk throughout the heart and base. Classic, English gentlemenís scent that is subtle and refined. Wears pretty close to the skin and lasts around 6-8 hours on me. I love everything in the Arlington line and this is no exception. While the opening is strong, it quickly fades into a very nice EdC like scent.
Lemon and fern and some kind of creamy, spicy base. A really fantastic scent. I experienced it first in their shaving cream (which is excellent) and was delighted to find that it was also a cologne. Very English, decent longevity. Masculine but not butch, this could be worn by a woman. A must-have.
