Barbour Heritage For Him Eau de Parfum

The original 2021 Barbour For Him fragrance is a classic men’s scent which is very wearable. The freshness of cardamon which is the primary note of the fragrance works well with a woody base to recreate the feeling of being outdoors, while black pepper adds a masculine touch. Barbour For Him lasts well and could be worn to any occasion I think.

Barbour Coastal For Him Eau de Parfum

2023 saw the release of Barbour Coastal For Him Eau de Parfum which keeps the fresh, outdoors feeling of the original fragrance but adds some lovely aromatic notes.

Although the bottle says ‘For Him’, I know a number of ladies who wear this so personally. Although the bottle says ‘For Him’, I know a number of ladies who wear this so personally I’d class it as unisex.

Barbour For Her Eau de Parfum

The Barbour For Her fragrance is a classic jasmine and vanilla scent which I find has good projection. It reminds me a lot of Paco Rabanne Fame which has similar perfume notes. The bottle is in the classic Barbour green with a faux leather lid; perfect for matching with your Barbour jacket.

Barbour Coastal For Her Eau de Parfum

Barbour Coastal For Her is a much lighter and fresher fragrance when compared to the original Barbour For Her. The main scent I get is a fresh lemon with some aromatic undertones. Although it is an Eau de Parfum, personally I find it performs like an Eau de Toilette and so I’d recommend this fragrance for hot summer days.
