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.

Fantastic scent Sterling!

It is a very nice scent, earthy and masculine! It is quite strong at first but fades a bit over time. I do have to reapply it several times a day. I like that it’s not overpowering like walking through a department store perfume department but if you are close to me one can smell it. I have tried several other solid colognes And this one is my favorite so far. My wife even likes this one more that all the rest as it passes better with my natural scent. Since I have to reapply it several time a day I wish there was a bit more in the package. For that reason I feel like I will go through it quickly and it is rather pricey for 0.2oz. Don’t get me wrong I really like it and will probably order a backup and a sample pack to see what else is good for Summer as this is very much a fall and winter scent.

Sterling Review

The scent did not smell anything like I thought it was and did not smell very good. When you put it on, it was very faint smell. I think the concept is a great one, but in the case definitely no worth the price.

Smells Amazing, but...

Pros - * The scent is exactly what I’ve been looking for * Ships fast even with standard shipping (free) * Very stylish/cool mental container * I’ve purchased more than once Cons - * Pricey for the amount you receive and the time that it lasts * The fragrance is very subtle so you must reapply often.
