SCRATCH N SNIFF: CHANEL


ALLURE HOMME SPORT EAU EXTREME: Mint. Sage. White Musk. Black pepper. Sandalwood. Sophisticated. Confident. I think this might be my favourite evolution of Allure Homme since the line launched in 1999 and I don’t normally like Sports line fragrances! In stores this month and a must have for autumn.

Check out the launch video: WATCH: CHANEL ALLURE SPORT HOMME EAU EXTREME

WATCH: CHANEL ALLURE SPORT HOMME EAU EXTREME

WATCH CHANEL: Take a look at Chanel’s campaign video for the soon-to-be-released Allure Sport Homme Eau Extreme. Featuring professional surfer Danny Fuller, shot by Oscar winning director and avid surfer Kathryn Bigelow, the star surfer can be seen looking cool whilst riding waves in Hawaii.

Awesome video – makes me think of beaches and endless summers. Let’s hope the fragrance smells as good as it looks… review to come.

JASON DUNDAS

Name, Place of birth, Occupation

Jason Dundas, Penrith, tv host, currently hosting the American morning show ‘Vh1’s Big Morning Buzz Live’ live weekdays from Times Square New York.

How long have you been working in TV… what kick started your career?

I’ve been working in TV for 9 years; it all started whilst I was in my 2nd year of design school at Uni. It was 2am on a Tuesday morning and I noticed an ad on MTV asking people to send in audition tapes to host their own Australian music show. I put my dads camera on the book shelf in my room, now about 3:15am, hit record and started dancing around to the White Stripes. 3 weeks later I was hosting my own show. From MTV to traveling through 60 countries with Getaway, now I call New York City home. Late last year I started hosting the American morning show ‘Vh1’s Big Morning Buzz Live’ weekdays from Times Square, New York, the show is just like a younger version of the Today show, on Channel Nine.

Describe your personal style…

I keep it simple, grey or white t-shirts, blue jeans or navy pants. I love thinking about wearing cool trendy stuff but I never actually do it. I’m a big nerd at heart.

Who’s style do you admire?

I don’t really admire the style of any one person in particular, but I regularly spend time on a few different blogs for ideas and influences. Blogs like JakandJil, TheSartorialist and Vitalvesselvindicates. When it comes to brands, I really like the french label APC, James Perse and Zegna.

The most played song in your Itunes?

In the US, Itunes has been taken over by the Swedish program Spotify. It’s basically Itunes but every song is free, the only catch is you don’t own the songs- you just play them as much as you like. Fav tune of the moment ‘Home’ by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, but I’m also liking the band ‘The Whitest Boy Alive’.

Your favourite men’s scent?

Platinum Egoiste, by Chanel

With a plane ticket to anywhere… where would you go?

I would fly home to Sydney. Spending so much time in America makes me miss Aus so much, from the beaches, my buddies, my fam and even the tap water! The water in Australia just tastes better.

Tell us about the images you have included…

New York City, my new home. I took this shot with a Diana medium format film camera. I really wanted to find a different take on the classic NY skyline photo. So I spent a bit of time walking around the projects down on the Lower Eastside. The building I found with the best view had one problem; it was housing commission and all Chinese occupied. With a cheeky Aussie smile I worked my way past the security at the front desk and into a random (but overly accommodating) small families studio apartment. This photo was taken out of their kitchen window.

Rio De Janeiro, my fav destination around the world. I took this shot on a Lomo 35mm camera while filming Carnival with Getaway.

Steve Jobs Biography by Walter Isaacson. Incredible.

With T.I On set of my US morning TV Show, ‘Vh1’s Big Morning Buzz Live’ from Times Square.

COLD FACED


Protecting your skin from the harsh winter chills should be a top priority. Yes, potentially even more important than the latest iPad/ Pod / Phone device, good skin care can last a life time- not just a season. The winter months are all about keeping your skin moisturised. Avoiding dry skin brought on by cold temperatures, harsh wind and heating systems will reduce redness, discomfort and premature ageing.

Here are some products I have tried and tested… Lab Series Daily Moisture Defence Lotion, Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment, Ella Bache Anti Fatigue Roll on Eye Gell, the luxurious CRÈME DE LA MER, Chanel Hydrabeauty Serum, Kiehl’s Eye Alert, Biotherm’s Aquapower Ultra moisturising Oligo-Thermal face care, and the Chanel Hydramax + Active Nutrition cream.
