Grooming: NEW FRAGRANCE: UOMO SALVATORE FERRAGAMO

  • UOMO SALVATORE FERRAGAMO, 50ML EDT R1000.00 AND 100ML EDT R1380.00, SELECTED RETAILERS

SCENT OF LIFE

Privileged enough to attend one of legendary Salvatore Ferragamo’s last menswear shows in Milan, on recently experiencing the new fragrance Uomo Salvatore Ferragamo, I was instantly transported back to that summer’s day milling on the steps of the show venue amidst a relaxed yet refined gathering of Italian men, young and old.

Charmed then, I am equally so today. While fresh and cool at first it’s the heart note of this scent that sets it apart in defining Italian style –Tiramisu, the irresistible, iconic Italian dessert. That’s right. And just like the dessert, you (and those around you) will want more. If you fear you might smell like a pudding relax – Uomo Salvatore Ferragamo warms down with masculine sandalwood, cashmere and tonka bean.

  • HI-TEC BADWATER COZY, R899.00 (BLACK OR CHARCOAL)

HI-TEC. COOL COMFORT

You probably associate Hi-Tec with great boots. And yes, that’s perfectly correct. But this autumn HI-Tec expands its range to include an athleisure collection set to kick some serious sneaker ass.

Comfort, fashion and expected Hi-Tec efficiency – are all core elements which embody the new range. This gym-to-office shoe is a fusion of style and performance.

For sneaker “techies” you’ll be happy to know the Badwater and Badwater Cozy ranges were uniquely designed to maximize comfort, using technologies such as dual density CMEVA midsoles and flex grooves to enhance the natural motion of the foot.

Wear with jeans, sweats or tailoring for a comfortable yet stylish daily commute.

Grooming: JO MALONE LONDON: INTRODUCING MYRRH & TONKA

TAILOR YOUR SCENT

If you haven’t yet discovered the contemporary “layering” trend in men’s fragrances you’re denying yourself the opportunity to tailor your own bespoke scent – or scents for that matter.

However this advanced-level scent technique isn’t merely spritzing a mix of your usual EDT’s – you need to be mindful of the ingredients you’re combining – much like when creating fine cuisine.

Fortunately Jo Malone has simplified the idea with their fragrance combining concept, whereby select fragrances from their range can be paired together, allowing you to express your individuality.

The newest addition to the diverse (and delicious) Cologne Intense collection is Myrrh & Tonka. Rich, hand-harvested sap of the Namibian myrrh tree mingles with the lush almond and vanilla notes of tonka bean. The scent is deep and warm and vaguely familiar. Like that of an African sunset.
