Moonshine CologneAustin, TX
A writer in Austin, Texas got a call from his dentist’s office. Not for an appointment, but to finally satisfy the curiosity of the female staff: what’s the name of the cologne he’s always wearing?
Moonshine is a timeless gentleman’s cologne by EastWest Bottlers, a Texas-based company with prominent North Carolina connections. Appropriately, the fragrance notes are themselves a little bit Texas, a little bit Carolina: you’ll recognize pepper, juniper, leather, and tobacco, and maybe a little bit of gin.
Named one of the best new colognes by Esquire magazine, Moonshine is bold and masculine, but without being overbearing. In our experience (yes, we wear Moonshine ourselves), this is an objectively appealing cologne. More than just your dentist’s office will offer you compliments. Even if they don't, you'll want to wear it despite the opinions of others.
The 3.4 oz bottle is simple. There is no atomizer; that’s on purpose. This is a cologne to be splashed on like aftershave, not sprayed like some delicate potpourri.
Moonshine Cologne presents itself cloaked in a burlap bag and stored in a handsome crate-like box. If your dilemma is finding a cologne that transcends hype and trends, consider it resolved.
Moonshine Cologne is packed in raw Texas cotton, and ships to you from Austin, Texas.
