Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisD82 This is how a man should smell
This is truly a gentleman's cologne. I'm only in my early 30's, but this is what I imagine every barbershop and haberdasher smelled like sixty years ago. The product description is accurate; it's semi-sweet with the distinct flavor of talcum, musk, leather, and spice. 1818 is smart and subtle. After it settles, it clings close to the skin and remains there for hours. I was able to still smell it after wearing it all day and then doing some yard work. The bottle is a really neat throw back to the cologne and tonic bottles of yesteryear and offers the option of being used as a spray or splash. All-in-all, 1818 is a FANTASTIC investment for anyone who understands and appreciates the importance of the classics.

Rated 4 out of 5 A Classic, but Maybe a Little Too Classic
I had never tried this, but ordered it based on internet reviews. The material arrived on time and in good condition. I really like the bottle shape and the fact that the spray top can be removed if you want to apply via a splash or transfer to another container for travel. The scent itself is a classic and reminds me of how men smelled when I was a boy and that is not necessarily a bad thing. I imagine wool sport coats, cigars and good steaks and a good old barber shop when men smelled like well men and not Rose petals. The fragrance does not have a long life and the base notes that are left seem a little bland. I wish the opening notes lasted a little longer. Overall I like this fragrance and will probably continue to wear it in fall and winter.

A long-lasting cologne but not over-powering, not sickening sweet. Professional. I've worn it for many years and still receive many compliments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ProfessorBBrother A Classic fragrance to match your autumn wardrobe.
The woody scent of this magnificent cologne suits perfectly the earth-tone and autumn-foliage colors of a gentleman's wardrobe.

This is a classic scent that smells wonderful on my husband. It is neither light or heavy. I don't care for scents that are real musky. This is a real refine, classic scent and is a favorite of my husbands.

This is a wonderful, soft, clean scent. I'm in the medical field and won't wear anything too overpowering. I have received nothing but complements on BB 1818.

I purchased this product for my husband who has been wearing it for years now. It's the best scent, sexy, strong, and long lasting! Beautiful bottle and great scent. Both men and women stop to ask him what cologne he is wearing, and it's 1818!
