Spitfire Solid Cologne
What is solid cologne & how do I use it? Our Spitfire solid cologne is a beeswax based cologne that pairs impeccably well with its shaving soap and post shave lotion namesakes. Unlike conventional cologne it contains no water, it travels well (effortlessly passing through airport security) and is easily portable thanks to its size.
Rub your finger across its surface or use the back of your thumb nail to extract an amount of your preference. Apply to a skin area of your choice, e.g. the neck or wrists and allow your skins warmth to unlock the scents full profile. Once done, re-lid your scent and secrete it in a pocket, draw or your bag.
Depending on a few factors, e.g. quantity applied, your skin type, weather, etc each application should last up to 2 hours. You can fine tune this by layering as little or as much solid cologne as you like throughout the day or evening.
Please note: We hand fill each tin with approximately 12g of cologne and do our very best to fill each tin as close to its lip as possible. However there may be a tiny variation in the amount in each unit as we take care not to overfill and render that tin useless.
What does Spitfire smell of? Spitfire is a scent I designed around the olfactory memories I have of my Grandfather, who was himself a WW2 Veteran of North Africa and Italy. An avid pipe smoker my "Papa" had an almost tangible air of leather and tobacco that seemed to follow him wherever he went. For Spitfire I've taken the sweet crispness of juniper and blended that with the freshness of bergamot, woodiness of cedarwood and laid all three on to a base of warming leather and rich tobacco. An old fashioned and grounding scent Spitfire transports me back to my very early years.
Ingredients: Cera alba, carthamus tinctorius (safflower) oil and essential oils: tobacco (fragrance oil), leather (fragrance oil), cedarwood, bergamot and juniper.
Net weight: 12g, proudly designed & made in Hitchin, England.
Great long lasting scent. Excelent and fast service.
very good product and very good service!
I bought this to match the soap and aftershave, I love the scent! I only wish that the scent lasted longer!
Outstanding well rounded scent, little stronger on the leather aspect than the shaving soap but very pleasant. Does wear out in 4-6 hours on me but the tin is very convenient for use on the go
When I first received the spitfire solid Cologne I have to say I was slightly disappointed - the fragrance seemed to be way too floral and little evidence of leather and tobacco.
As result I left it for a couple of weeks before trying it again. I'm not sure what happened in that time - maybe it just mellowed, but I was instantly hooked by the rich, warm scent. It's lovely, and I can't get enough of it. I bought it for traveling but now carry it with me everywhere.
I'm looking forward to trying the Aftershave version when that is released!
