OBRO or Solid Cologne Royalty
SPOILER ALERT: These babies are a thing of beauty!
You’ve been looking for amazing fragrances in a highly convenient format?! Look no further! @obrolabs has you covered with their signature solid colognes!
• THRONE: Hawaiian Mist, Tobacco Leaf
• PHARAOH: Orange Sweet, Sandalwood
• REIGN: Fresh Peony, Water Lily
• MONARCH: Woodland Spice, Cinnamon Cream
Yes, there is a theme and that’s you are a king and should treat yourself as such!
I personally enjoy rich, classic, and manly arrangements with a modern twist and OBRO has been a delight for my nose. Because the arrangements are not overly complicated, I found them to be accessible and enjoyable. But don’t let that fool you in thinking that these are simple 2 notes creations. On the contrary, I enjoyed them more than a number of the complex designer options in my collection because you can actually savour the elements and how they work together.
REIGN is the one I wasn’t expecting to enjoy as much as I did. It is an ideal summer fragrance with its fresh and lighter floral mood.
I have been wearing all four fragrances, but REIGN and THRONE are the ones I am reaching for more frequently.
If you haven’t used solid colognes, you are missing out on total portability and convenience. Furthermore you are also parting ways with alcohol and chemical fillers often used in liquid colognes. The “solid” aspect is made by using natural oils and shea butter. For anyone with allergies or skin conditions, this is a God scent alternative.
The portability aspect is such that you don’t have to overdo it for it to last, you can just touch up on the go and keep things royal!
DURATION & PROJECTION
I have been wearing these scents over a span of 3-4 weeks in different conditions, albeit in summer weather. Generally, it has been 3-4 hours of noticeable scent for a 2-3 swipe application on my wrists and neck. Projection has been in the range of 2 M and I wouldn’t want more than that as I am not “that guy”!
Delightful fragrances in an ultra-convenient format!
