Metro Man & Metro Home

Warm breezes. Placid waters. Sunny days. This is the Caribbean experience, and the olfactory version of it is bottled by St. John’s. There may be a plethora of bay rum colognes from which to choose, but St. John’s Bay Rum is the one we recommend for natural, tropical Caribbean ingredients – and for a blend manufactured in the West Indies that has been pleasing generations since 1946. There is nothing quite like it. It’s masculine, yet tantalizingly sweet and spicy.

St. John’s offers four different fragrance lines: Bay Rum, Classics (West Indian Lime, Island Spice), Traditionals (Cutlass, Indian Gold) and Fragrances for Women (West Indian Lime, Floral Cologne, and J’Ouvert Eau de Toilette). Now that spring is in the air, choose your olfactory favorite, and find them at C.O. Bigelow in Greenwich Village, Apthorp Pharmacy, and Eisler Chemist.
