Smells really good, projects nicely and lasts a long time. More of warm weather scent in my opinion. The lavender in this really sticks out is a great note in this fragrance

5 out of 5 stars and I will definitely recommend.
Not at all what I expected to come. I can’t complain about cheap designer cologne though 5 out of 5 stars. I’m glad my first choice was a great and easy selection. I’m definitely going to recommend this to everyone I know.

Not for me
my second scent from EL First was 'Notting Hill) and, honestly, much like the first, this one didn't doi much at all for me.😒 i mean they're not BAD SMELLING but , first ooff, neither seemed very strong OR unique; from OTHER SCENES AND between each OTHER... like I said, they don't smell bad but they ALSO don't project OR last very long: i mean they BOTH Seemed to fade fast and THAT having HAPPENED tube 'dry down' notes seemed to ME to smell line, wel... nothing. nothing that I can PINPOINT that is. on that note, I believe I'm done with EL but thank god for Scentbird because this is EXACTLY what the PURPOSE of using Scenbird IS!👍

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.

In love at first spray
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

At First
I thought it wouldn't match my own scent having never used Riviera scents before. After the first burst I thought it was a tad overbearing but then it settled literally a minute later. Gladly it did so I knew not to spray too much on. Since I wear essential oils daily in profession or for personal hygiene English laundry is perfect after a fresh shower and subtly last all day. With people in close proximity to me all day I know they're more comfortable.

This actually is great laid back office working smell. Kinda attractive like you want attention, but at the same time you don’t really care about it because you that guy and everybody is taking double looks at you when you walk past and you know it.

Nice but nothing special
Added this to my list while looking at unisex scents without realizing it was a cologne, so I was a little confused when I recieved it. This is a nice scent, though. At first it's pretty strong and it smells like literally every cologne sample page you'd find in a magazine. Once it has a chance to settle a bit, it's a nice clean (if generic), masculine fragrance with a slight floral undertone from the lavender. Mature but not old; I'd expect a scent like this on a guy something like 25-40 years old. I gave it to my boyfriend after I tried it and I like it pretty well on him.

A good everyday scent
This is probably one of the greatest middle of the road scents ever created. it is fresh and clean smelling without coming across as soapy. I can not image anyone at the office taking offence. In fact I usually don't wear fragrance on a plane, but have taken to wearing this, just because I know no one will complain. My one main gripe is it does not seem to last very long. a couple of hours tops.

it's ok It's a fresh scent with recycled DNA from other scents
it's forgettable, smells like a very toned down version of many other popular 'bleu' fresh/clean fragrances. It doesn't have sharp edges like some other frags which is why this really doesn't have a identity of it's own.

Cool for the summer
Very light fragrance, great for the summer time would definitely deem this fragrance very casual if you're looking for an occasion. Nice for a picnic in the park or a quick lunch with a friend. The notes that really stand out the most are the lime and nutmeg, the lime took a bit of getting used too but hey it's summer time no need for a strong musk smell. Overall solid fragrance Engkish Laundry is very consistent when it comes to fragrance. Riveria is very casual and beachy reminds me of a nice summer day 3/5 ⭐️s.
