Shackleford draws its name from Shackleford Banks. Part of North Carolina’s famed Outer Banks, this small island is famous for its wild horses that have roamed the beach for centuries. The area has also become a popular campsite for adventurous tourists. This untamed paradise seemed like a fitting namesake for our warm and rich wood fragrance.
Tybee Island, off the coast of Georgia and very near Savannah, is known for its lack of pretense. This is an island where people enjoy themselves, plain and simple. These days, its shores are lined with family cottages and friendly faces. But during the Industrial Revolution, Tybee developed a reputation for its clean salt air, making it a top destination for city dwellers looking for a respite from the smog at home. That’s why the F&R scent that we’ve dubbed “clean” feels like a perfect fit for the name “Tybee.” It’s fresh, clean and bright – just like its namesake.
This cologne gets its name from Hatteras Island, a long thin island that stretches for nearly 50 miles. Known as a sports paradise, the island is home to gorgeous beaches, and its marlin-filled waters are perfect for sport fishing. Windsurfing and kiteboarding are also popular pastimes on Hatteras. This lively location feels American to its core, and it’s why we chose to name our classic and sporty fragrance in its honor.
Initially released as our first limited reserve offering, Clearwater started with our discovery of Madagascan Geranium. The flower grown off the coast of Southern Africa has a rich, green fragrance. But unlike its Egyptian and North American cousins, the Madagascan variety has a bold, masculine quality that makes it a perfect centerpiece for a modern man’s cologne.
Notes of fresh water and oakmoss are complemented with wood and clean citrus. The resulting fragrance reminds us of the Clearwater River in Washington state, rushing from the Olympic Mountains toward the sea.
Inspired by the Southwestern Florida island of the same name, Captiva is a cologne that is sure to leave an impression. A modern men’s fragrance, this citrus, aromatic fragrance features top notes of bergamot and citron and fresh green leaves that open to labdanum accented with vetiver. Light and aromatic while decidedly masculine, Captiva is a fresh yet assertive scent that’s ideal for every season.
Sterling is our homage to the rich and complex fragrance that is tobacco. 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.
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.
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.
Love the Tybee scent. The replacements are super easy to insert into the case. Great product!
I am a long-time consumer of F & R. I have multiple tins from their old style and have purchased refills on a couple of occasions. The refill container doesn't fit in the old tins, so I finally emailed them and asked for guidance. They promptly replied and are sending me a new style tin so I can simply slide the refill into the new tin. Great customer service.
Not impressed with the fragrance. Scent seems very dull, unlike my original purchase.
Bought two for me and my son took them both. He really liked the fresh, unique scents and how long they last.
The smell is subtle and lasts all day. I used to be extremely self conscious that I was over doing it with the sprays. I didn't want to be that salesperson that you could smell before you saw me. My favourite is Sterling so far but I bought the sample pack to try the others. My only suggestion is that maybe F&R send the sample pack with a purchase.
