"Nature Isle is amazingly balanced! The Bay Rum does NOT overpower the fragrance but blends well with the lime, the tonka, and the spices. It is truly an incredibly well-blended juice with a positive, uplifting, nostalgic vibe." - Dr. Wonder
The Smell of Nostalgia - We’ve all experienced catching a breeze of a familiar scent and instantly being transported to another place, reminded of other people, or recalling a special time in our lives. It might take a moment to understand the association, but it’s instantly recognizable when it happens.
That's what this fragrance does for me. It brings up heartwarming and emotional memories of trips to the barbershop with my dad when, after your haircut, the barber would powder your neck and splash on some Bay Rum. Special moments of standing on a stool next to my dad in the bathroom watching his shaving routine. Ah... fond memories indeed.

Q: Is this fragrance for a man or a woman?
A: This fragrance smell great on men and women!
Q: Is this perfume or cologne?
A: Actually, it is an Eau de Parfum (EdP). Eau de Parfum is a historically genderless term used to describe both men’s and women’s fragrances.
Generally, an Eau de Toilette concentration can range between 5% and 12%, while an Eau de Parfum concentration can range between 12% and 18%, although the concentrations of EdT versus EdP can vary.
EdP contains a higher concentration of essential/fragrance oils than Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne and Eau de Fraiche.
In other words, our Eau de Parfum has a higher concentration of fragrance, which results in a longer-lasting and more aromatic application.
Our eau de parfum contains 12% pure perfume essence and can last for about three to eight hours depending on your skin's chemistry.
Q: What is the best way to apply Barberry Coast fragrances?
A: The fragrancex website has a great "how-to" on applying fragrances that we've adapted here for our Barberry Coast fragrances.
Top 3 Common Mistakes in Applying Fragrances
I got my bottle of Nature Isle about a week ago and really love the scent. This is my fifth cologne from Barberry and it’s fitting nicely in my rotation.
Incredibly unique scent! Absolutely love it! Longevity is decent, not as good as Finca Vigía but still pretty good. But it today, you won’t be disappointed if you like the clean, barber shop type of scents.
I am loving this new scent and gives me a nice choice between the two!
I ordered one for each of the men in my family for Christmas. They will love it as much as I do. I highly recommend Nature Isle.
Gentle hint of the tropics. I can imagine Ernest, having showered after a day of fishing , smelling such a scent while sipping a daquari in Bimini.
