Grooming: MASTER THE SHAVE IN ASSOCIATION WITH EGDARS

Written by | Found in: Grooming News | Posted on: 16 Apr 2017 - 7:18 pm

MASTER THE SHAVE

Shaving is a fundamental part of being a man. A welcomed rite of passage into manhood, a tradition passed from father to son. Fair enough. But let’s be honest shaving can sometimes seem more like a chilling surgical procedure rather than the pleasant male ritual it was promised to be.

But many men are guilty of bad shaving habits (if not daily then surely occasionally) that contribute to the unhealthy condition of their skin. Old blades, poor prep and shaving with cheap foam or worse yet soap wreak havoc on the skin resulting in painful and unsightly razor burn, bumps and inflammation.

  • MR. BURBERRY EDP 150ML R2000.00, EDP 100ML R1650.00 AND EDP 50ML R1170.00 SELECTED RETAILERS

INTRODUCING MR.BURBERRY EDP

Mr. Burberry Eau de Parfum, is a deeper, more sensual interpretation of the iconic Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette. This new release, the collaboration between Burberry’s Chief Creative, Christopher Bailey, and perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, takes inspiration from the brand’s iconic black trench coat and London city at night.

It opens up with zesty notes of grapefruit, tarragon and cardamom, but quickly dries down to a sensual finish of birch leaf and vetiver . The bottle also gets the dressed-up Trenchcoat treatment, with a heavy cap reminiscent of horn buttons and a hand-tied knot in black gabardine the same fabric the iconic Burberry tench is made from.

But the Mr.Burberry story doesn’t end here. Three new limited-edition grooming products – Aftershave Balm, Face Scrub and Hair and Beard Clay – are added to the existing collection, each lightly infused with the scent of Mr. Burberry.

The face (or neck?) of the campaign is rising star Josh Whitehouse, chosen by Christopher Bailey and renowned for his role in 2014’s Northern Soul.

  • 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.

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.

ESSENCE OF THE OCEAN

Aqva Pour Homme Atlantiqve is a new version of the popular masculine aquatic fragrance from Bvlgari, Aqua Pour Homme and created by the same master perfumer and famous “nose” Jacques Cavallier.

We have no doubt just like its predecessor Aqva Pour Homme, Atlantiqve is set to score high in the popularity stakes.

It’s a refreshing and energetic “aquatic” fragrance inspired by the strength of the Atlantic Ocean. Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian lemon and a “vital water” accord give it fresh zesty top notes. At its heart a “sea amber” note developed by Jacques Cavallier evokes the depths of the ocean and woody vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli give the blend masculine appeal.

Loved and worn by men the world over since its inception in 2010, BLEU DE CHANEL is a masculine aromatic-woody scent harnessed from fields of citrus, aromatic herbs and dry cedar wood. It’s a fragrance that can be worn day or night – all year round. And now with the new handy travel spray – all the time, wherever you are.

COCKED & LOADED

With a bottle shaped like a pistol cylinder filled with bullets Azzaro WANTED is for the man who likes to come out guns blazing – in the boardroom and bedroom.

But while the packaging is less than subtle, the fragrance itself is. Lemon and ginger notes give it a crisp freshness on top with spice and wood at the base making Azzaro WANTED the ideal weapon of seduction.

Who needs Cupids arrow when you’ve got Azzaro’s bullets keeping you right on target?
