Fresh fragrances, soaps that makes shaving a pleasure, and a brush for better skin

I remember, years ago, meeting the “grooming editor” of a men’s magazine and feeling sorry for her because I thought her job must be dull. It was presumptuous of me but, at that point, the focus of the beauty industry was squarely femalecentric. The beautification of men wasn’t a thing and while there have always been fragrances, they were limited to badly concocted woody scents so intense you could choke on them. How things have changed. Fragrances targeting men are more sophisticated, fresher and gender neutral (Louis Vuitton’s latest offering, a citrussy delight, is testament to this). Shaving, a ritual that has become pretty basic, is now paying homage to the more elegant approach of yesteryear. A Claus Porto shaving soap (enriched with tonka bean, incense and castor oil) is a simple but glorious way to elevate the everyday. A good cleansing ritual – the Foreo Luna cleansing device helps you do this more effectively – will give you better skin, and a spritz of something inoffensive is just plain good manners.
