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.
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 our warm and woody cologne. This distinguished fragrance speaks to man’s attraction to both the elemental and the refined.
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.
