Aromatic tobacco complemented with notes of leather and rich vanilla

.2oz Solid Cologne


Now available in our permanent collection, Sterling was our all-time fastest-selling Limited Reserve cologne. Sterling is our homage to the rich and complex fragrance that is tobacco, and we spent more than a year getting the formulas just right. The aromatic blend opens with warm and sweet tobacco, which gives way to smooth leather and is completed with notes of dark amber and vanilla. The resulting fragrance is assertive but not aggressive, possessing masculinity without machismo.

Sterling was named for Mount Sterling in the Western Mountains of North Carolina. While not easily accessible, the hike to the top of the abandoned fire tower on the mountain's peak is worth the effort. We think that like the climb, your experience with Sterling will be well worth the wait.

Solid Cologne

Each Fulton & Roark fragrance is designed to evoke a vivid feeling, and a sense of atmosphere and occasion. Using a blend of naturally sourced essential oils and premium fragrance ingredients, each cologne offers its own experience.

These highly concentrated solid colognes offer a long-lasting and steady fragrance designed to keep you fresh. More subtle than their liquid counterparts, F&R’s solids provide a personal fragrance--for those who are close to you, but not the whole office.

The solid metal containers travel easily in a gym bag, pocket or carry-on, allowing a man to smell his best no matter where he goes.

Love these scents

It has been great to shop F&R’s products. I’ve purchased 2 solid cologne scents, Sterling and Palmetto, and it really was hard for me to choose. I first ordered the 8 scent sampler pack and, I’ll tell you, I spent days trying them all. I want every one, I like them so much. I don’t really care which one my wife likes, I am fascinated to envelope myself in each one. And what’s more, I love the classy metal case. A product combination I’ve never experienced before. Excellent quality. I will buy every scent eventually. Thanks all at F&R. Michael

Faint Fragrance Fulton Roark Sterling

Smells great but lasts less than a few minutes so not sure how useful a faint smell works for me long term

Great Scent, but Doesn’t Last Long.

The scent is INCREDIBLE. Sadly it wears off very quickly. Because of needing to reapply, it is very expensive for how much you get.
