We used to have a boat. The guy that sold it to me was named Harvey. We looked at a lot of boats before we settled on one, and every time we went below I held my breath like a pearl diver because Harvey wore this cologne that you had to squint to see through.
That is the basis of my fear of cologne, until Madras by St Johns.
St Johns on their site lists the scent’s top, heart, and base notes. I don’t know what that means but I can tell you this has been crafted with an Ivy sensibility. Even the name. And it is subtle. It is hey-he-smells-good not hey-he-smells.
My daughter likes to try on cologne, this might be a scent she could try as well.
