As a result of feeling like I largely ignore grooming on this site… Here is a conscious effort to broaden the conversation. Kicking off with a series of men’s fragrance and skincare reviews, every product is tried and tested- and totally up to scratch.
On a side note- I am no expert on the subject- so the following is simply ramblings and observations.
Givenchy: Gentlemen Only. Clean, soapy, fresh and masculine. Like someone who has just showered- in a good way- and potentially on a summers morning. The ideal scenario: Lunch date. Plus, Simon Baker fronts the campaign and he is cool. $129 for 100ml at David Jones
Acqua di Parma: Blu Mediterraneo. The smell of citrus, relaxation and salt air. This is the scent you imagine when day dreaming about a European summer holiday. The ideal scenario: Straight off the beach. $140 for 150ml at Sephora
Fendi: Fan di Fendi Pour Homme Acqua. Best described as aromatic. Not as fresh as expected- and heavier than your average acqua summer scent. Ideal scenario: After dark. The campaign is fronted by cool dude Mark Ronson- doing his best. $85 for 50ml from David Jones
Salvatore Ferragamo: Acqua Essenziale. Bold and fairly juicy, it is definitely fresh and citrus. A little heavy for the beach. Ideal scenario: 100% after dark. $109 for 100ml at David Jones
