Deal Alert!

March 16, 2011

Guys, you’re in luck! We’ve got a doubleheader deal alert on fragrances today and you just happen to have home plate seats. First up today is Cubby with an amazing offer on great fragrance decants. I’ve referred to him in previous posts, but just in case you’re not familiar with him I’ll refresh your memory. Cubby is a YouTube fragrance reviewer/guru who also runs a website called fragrancetalk.com where you can find his decant store. He is a very reliable source for fragrance advice and I regularly consult his videos before buying a fragrance. What I love about this new offer is:

  • Not paying a ridiculous price to try designer fragrances.
  • Receiving a useable amount of fragrance that won’t be gone after three tries.
  • All the decants offered have a review video to match on Cubby’s Youtube channel.

Need I say more? I didn’t think so.

Time for deal number two, this one from fragrancevials.com. It’s perfect if you’ve been dying to get your hands on some fragrance samples because each sample is only $2.50. They offer free ground shipping on orders placed within the USA, and if you enter the promo code cubby15 at checkout you’ll receive and extra 15% off your order. I see an expanding fragrance collection in our future.

If you have any other questions about either deal, Cubby explains both below.

Thanks A Million

March 15, 2011

I always love getting compliments, and I think it’s safe to assume that you do too. Well, it’s time to celebrate because I’ve found an amazing fragrance that will be sure to get you noticed; it’s basically compliments in a bottle. This wonder fragrance I’m referring to is 1 Million by Paco Rabanne. You can head on over to their site to find a list of all the different notes, so I’ll just keep it simple and give you the lowdown on what makes it so amazing for me. The unusual combination of zesty citrus and sweet vanilla along with a touch of mint makes for a strong and attention grabbing opening. As the fragrance develops on your skin you’ll notice a slightly sweeter, more cinnamon scent which will drive the ladies nuts! Speaking of ladies, gals there’s a Lady Million which smells great also, and is probably one of the best female counterparts to a male fragrance I have smelled. It has great staying power (around 10+ hours) and a robust intensity so make sure you don’t over-do it on this one guys. I’ve heard this described as a good “clubbing” scent, but really it would work for whatever event you have planned; I even like to wear it during the day when I want to add a little kick into the mix. Definitely give this one a try guys and spray on some compliments…1 million to be exact.

A Good, Swift Kick in the Rear

March 14, 2011

Ok, so it’s Monday and if you’re like most Americans you probably aren’t exactly jumping for joy to end your weekend and head off to work or school. Add to this the fact that we just sprung forward and essentially lost an hour of sleep, and I can bet you’re feeling an extra dose of the Monday blues. My solution to this is to do just the opposite of what one might expect: celebrate. Yep, you heard me right. Instead of dreading today and tossing on some sweats as an act of mourning, put on some of your favorite wardrobe pieces (at least you won’t look miserable). Not only will you look great, but you’ll also be giving yourself a mental leg-up by dressing like a winner. If you find yourself stuck and in need of some inspiration check out fellow style-guy Sabir Peele here on his blog- he’s got some great outfit ideas and never skimps on style. I find that whenever I’m facing a grueling day wearing some of my favorite stuff can help put me in a better mood; it’s basically giving those Monday blues a good, swift kick in the rear and refusing to let the end of your weekend become the end of your style. C’mon guys, let’s show this day who’s boss.

That Little European Flair

March 11, 2011

Shoes are the foundation to an outfit, not necessarily the starting point, but they do anchor the look. This is true for both men and women and, although men’s shoes usually aren’t as flashy as women’s, a solid pair of shoes is sure to create a dashing look and get you lots of compliments. My favorite pair of shoes is my Steve Madden Serpants. They are well constructed and you can’t beat about $90 for a good dress shoe. I love them because they are very versatile and their slightly longer, sharp profile gives them a little European flair. This is a pair of shoes that you won’t see on everybody and the ladies will love them. (A reliable source tells me women love a well-dressed man.) Don’t be afraid to give these a try because that subtle boost of chicness will make you look great and feel confident.

This Just Might Start a Fight.

Deal Alert!

March 9, 2011

Ladies and Gentle…..well, actually just Gentlemen. Gentlemen! I have struck online gold! I found my newest favorite moisturizer on sale for the almost unbelievable price of $3.99. I discovered the Neutrogena Men Sensitive Skin Oil-Free Moisture SPF 30 this past week in my local drug store and after only a few days of use I can notice a difference in the texture and overall health of my skin. I really like this moisturizer because it won’t create an oil-slick on top of your face, but instead soaks in right away and provides a soothing layer of protective moisture. I especially love it because it has SPF 30, which is ESSENTIAL for healthy skin (30 is the minimum that my dermatologist recommends). I’m not sure how long the sale is going to be happening, but I would encourage you to take a gander and see what tickles your fancy while the men’s face products are cheap. HERE’S A BONUS: Use the promo code JNJHOLIDAY at checkout to get an extra 30% off your entire order. Now seriously guys, when looking good can be this cheap we’re not gonna be single for long.

Ok, So I’m Obsessed.

I recently received Burberry Touch for Men as a gift and I am absolutely obsessed. Although this fragrance came out a while ago, I only recently discovered it and from the moment that brilliant scent made it’s way to my nose I knew that this would become a permanent part of my arsenal. The light, clean scent is perfect for everyday use and I love how versatile it is; it transitions between day and night beautifully as well as between warm and cold weather. Wearing Touch is like taking a stroll through a picturesque countryside on a perfect day. This fragrance puts me in a good mood every time I wear it (which is quite often) and has proven its worth over and over again. If you’re looking to add a super-versatile, unoffensive, yet special fragrance to your collection you can sure bet your bottom dollar on this one.
