An excerpt of a review from Borderboss on Badger & Blade
British Sterling (Speidel): The scent comes across as floral with some powder notes. It's fairly muted, and dissipates quickly. It's been about 45 minutes since I applied it, and it's essentially gone.
British Sterling (MEM): The scent is floral with powder notes, almost identical to the Speidel version. However, the scent last much longer. It's still hanging in there after 45 minutes.
British Sterling is still available to purchase and is sold by Dana Classic Fragrances. It has been reformulated
This is the original cologne version of the fragrance by MEM.
