THE light scent for the modern gentleman
No downside to this scent. Airy and light, there is no bite like you get with some of the more fragrant male scents. This is not musky; definitely one for the office, a quick dab for a store run or even to turn a couple heads when you first hit the gym (trust me on this one!) It’s a pale odor, meaning that the colder it is, the more refined it appears. Definitely keep some on hand for the holiday season.

Great scent, light and not a spray once in the morning scent
I received lots of compliments on this one. It is a great scent that is clean and not overpowering. The only drawback is that it fades after 4 hours or so but I think a lot of scents do this and I am not bothered. One of the advantages of Scentbird is that you can have the scent with you to re-apply.

My mother used to wear Tabu, and as soon as I caught a whiff of this, it reminded me of that discontinued old school fragrance. Long lasting warm and spicy.

That secret hitter.
I was sent this by mistake. I was supposed to have get a room by confession of a rebel. But received this instead. This scent is that of the gods on a Sunday stroll through Greece. This is an afternoon affair Cologne, it’s not strong but it’s there lingering in the way that bad bo stays on a white shirt. This is the one

Its an alright scent
I personally like the Oxford Blue better as it smells more mature. Riviera smells good but it almost smells too young for me. Like a teenager could be wearing this fragrance. I would even go as far as to say it smells sort of like a cheap cologne.

Best YSL clone
Smells just like L’Homme by Yves Saint Laurent but with a little more kick/spice (just a little bit less soft, but still very soft). Soft in character not projection, seems to project just a little more than L’Homme. 10/10 worth the buy/sample

Signature Fragrance Material.
English Laundry does it yet again! Riviera is outstanding as a fragrance with a cool, dry aroma with a strong impression. Distinctly masculine yet understated, it's perfect for the being the Guy Who Smells Good without people noticing you're wearing cologne. The dryness of the fragrance is a breath of fresh air, and uniquely subtle; it didn't make too strong of an impression me at first, but it's quickly worked its way into my top five for everyday wear. It smells fantastic, I get compliments from strangers, and I feel great wearing it. Highly recommended.

Beautiful and Sophisticated
This scent was amazing, and it match very well with my profile. I actually do plan on buying a bottle for myself. I tend to gravitate towards fresh scents and this did an amazing job of showcasing that. It was clean, but it was still sexy enough to impress my girlfriend, which is always a win. If you find yourself using scents like me, then I would encourage you to try it out. You won’t be disappointed. I have been really impressed with English Laundry so far and could not be more happier with Rivera.

Good, Mature Scent
A good scent I would compare heavily to Versace Dreamer. My father is a long-time Dreamer wearer, so I knew this was familiar as soon as I opened my shipment. But younger guys beware, this is probably easier to pull off for more mature men (hence why my dad wears it). I got some compliments, but I'll wait 10 years before I buy a full bottle.

I've enjoyed many of English Laundry's parfum's but Riviera may be my favorite one yet. From the very first spray i was totally in love with this fragrance. I received many compliments from women and a few from men as well. Its very clean and fresh and is my new go to for everyday use.

Pretty good - it grows on you
At first spray I was turned off by Riviera: it was too floral and pungent. However, it dries pretty nicely into a warm woody lavender with some masculine spice and citrus notes. A bit reminiscent of Prada Pour Homme, which I like. Smell was pretty strong and I could smell it radiating off me well into the afternoon and early evening
