SOLID COLOGNE: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT IS SOLID COLOGNE?

Our solid cologne is a wax-based fragrance that is long-lasting and designed not to overpower. It comes in a small, shatterproof container and can go anywhere. Just swipe your fingers across the wax to apply a small amount to your wrists and neck and you’re ready to go!

HOW DOES SOLID COLOGNE COMPARE TO SPRAY COLOGNE?

When you put on solid cologne, you’re in control of the fragrance level. You swipe on just a little bit, and you can always add more. You’re not going to overwhelm the elevator, your date or your coworkers with an overpowering smell. Instead, you’ll have a long-lasting steady-wearing fragrance for you and those closest to you.

Since it's solid, you can take it on an airplane. You don't have to worry about a bottle shattering and the smell overtaking the room. 

The cost per use of Fulton and Roark’s solid cologne is about the same as what you would pay for spray cologne at a finer men’s store. It’s highly-concentrated, so you can apply less to get the same effect as spray. Daily users get four months of use on average; regular users get seven months on average.

IS THE SCENT OVERPOWERING? 

With solid cologne, you’ll never be that guy. You’ll get compliments, but only from people who should be noticing your scent, like someone giving you a hug. People near you won’t notice if you’re discreetly applying solid cologne in your cubicle or the locker room.

HOW DO I CARRY IT AROUND? 

Our packaging is designed to fit discreetly in the pocket of a slim cut pant. The top of our metal container rotates open and closes with a snap – you’ll never lose the top of your cologne! The container has smooth angles so it won’t leave an obvious imprint in your pocket. The case is very travel-friendly and fits perfectly in any bag or briefcase.

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE ON MY SKIN? 

Once you apply it, you shouldn’t notice it anymore! Our formula is non-comedogenic, meaning it sits on top of your skin and doesn’t sink into your pores. All of our fragrances are IFRA-certified: we conform to their rules about what’s safe for your skin and for the planet. If you haven’t experienced skin irritation before with grooming products, you shouldn’t have problems with ours.

HOW ABOUT NOW?

HOW DO I GET IT OFF?

It lasts about 4-8 hours and is designed to wear off over time. In the heat or in Summer months, you will likely need to reapply more often. If you take a shower, it will dissipate with soap and water. If you wanted to take it off, a damp washcloth works perfectly.

 

IF IT'S WAX, WILL IT MELT? 

Solid cologne can go anywhere you do. If you don’t want to be locked in your car in Texas in the summer, your cologne doesn’t either. That is to say, it will melt with intense heat! If you leave your cologne on a flat surface and it melts, keep it upright and it will reconstitute in a cooler place.

"I ordered this cologne for my boyfriend as a surprise after we discovered this product in a brick and mortar store and both fell in love with the scent. He was beyond thrilled when he got it in the mail. The scent is amazing. Very natural, not overpowering, but incredibly sexy. Neither of us like overpowering/fake scents."

READY TO SMELL GREAT?

 
"I saw these colognes in a boutique in Blacksburg and knew my husband would love the metal casing. I just wasn't sure what scent to get. I received an email about this new scent: Palmetto. I knew that the description sounded too good to be true. I ordered it that same day, received the product a few days later and gifted the solid cologne to my husband for graduation (masters degree!!). He loves the scent, I do, and so does our four year old girl who walks into the room and says 'mmm smells like daddy in here!' Haha! Great product and amazing scent!"

"I didn’t really know what to expect when I was looking into this company and their fragrances having never heard of them or tried a wax based fragrance before. When I got my Fulton and Roark Palmetto tin in the mail and opened the solid metal container I fell in love instantly. The fragrance was delightful and reminded me of what a man should truly smell like. The experience of opening the tin makes you feel like you are taking a deep dive into history before rising to the surface and smelling great. 10/10 would highly recommend this fragrance to anyone and can’t wait to try out all of their other fragrances as well."

"I have been an F&R customer since I believe what was their first full year of being in business. The product design is gorgeous but also a dream for a frequent traveler. No more concerns about liquid spilling or dealing with taking it out of carryons. I love all the scents they have made (namely Tybee and Shackleford) but Palmetto is my new favorite."
