Yes you’re right perfume isn’t, strictly speak, for Men. But the latest launch from The Perfume Society, just might very well be. 

The Perfume Society, was established in 2014 by two beauty and grooming Industry legends, the award winning,  Jo Fairley and former fragrance and beauty buyer for Harrods and QVC, and responsible for setting up the Liberty Perfumery  Lorna McKay. They bring deep knowledge and enviable Little Black Books of fragrance contacts to The Perfume Society, which acts as a ‘hub’ for all things fragrant. Whether it’s calls to help finding a long-lost fragrance, The Perfume Society has become the go-to fount of fragrance wisdom and knowledge.

The Perfume Society have for a number of years been offering Discovery Boxes to introduce femalescent-lovers to new fragrances. But let me introduce you to  The New Man Discovery Box – brimming with 13 male-focused scents (and an incredible ‘extra’ worth £20).  Their most bumper men’s collection yet, the sensational scents in the box include Creed Viking (winner of The Fragrance Foundation‘s Best Male Fragrance 2018!), niche offerings from Nejma, Florisand Jack (Richard E. Grant’s fragrance line) and a preview of new Shay & Blue King’s Wood (not out till September), among this far from dirty dozen.

Plus as a special treat, they are also including a FULL-SIZE Escentric Molecules 03 Body Wash (worth £20!). With so many incredible scents featured, any man will feel like a new man, with this…

This covers every grooming need – so any man can smell, look and feel amazing with the  latest Men’s Discovery Box.

Well M&S Menswear introduces The Foundation Edit; a curation of wardrobe essentials, highlighting timeless pieces that form the building blocks of the contemporary wardrobe, season after season.

The Foundation Edit includes eight pieces in a neutral colour palette; from key outerwear and layering separates, to classic footwear and underwear; prices include chinos and shirts at the unbelievable £15.

The Foundation Edit hero styles will be available at Marks & Spencer throughout the year; enabling every man to build a versatile wardrobe rooted in value, fit, style and quality. 

There’s a tasty new trend on the block for Summer 2018 – ‘ice-cream’ shades. Yeah we ain’t talking about your Mini Milks, Feasts, or Strawberry Spilts here.

Menswear traditionally doesn’t tend to experiment much with colour palettes, but more brands are now diving into the world of colour, with brands like M.C. Overalls . The brand launched their new Spring Summer 2018 collection with takes on a dusty pink ’strawberry’, ‘vanilla’ white and ‘blue ice’ palette with a number of their core staples, including their classic Coach Jacket, Work Trousers, Snap Shirt and Boiler.

With Father’s Day coming up this weekend we thought we’d have a look at some celebrity Dad and look how they deal with their crowning glory. So we sought the advice of leading men’s hair care brand  Fudge Urban to letting us into some trade secret service about how to achieve those key look so of Dadies of the RIch and Famous.

David Beckham

Football player, model, actor, husband and father or four – name something David Beckham can’t do! Impossible to forget some of his iconic hairstyles; his latest haircut is shorter on the sides and longer on the top, slicked back. The perfect product for him is the Fudge Urban Remouldable Paste: this paste combines flexibility with extreme hold, leaving your hair defined with a polished finish.

Bear Grylls

Always on an adventure, Bear Grylls doesn’t forget to be a loving father who has a lot to teach to his kids. His hairstyle has to be quick, easy and able to “survive” to every situation. If you feel like him in your everyday life, use the Fudge Urban Salt Spray: The Sea Salt Marine Minerals provide a raw textured feel with extra body, ideal for a casual, minimal effort look. 

Simon Cowell

The famous TV producer became a first-time father in his mid-50s – better late than ever! We’re used to his sever comments and strong attitude, but it’s been said that fatherhood has perhaps softened him! The perfect product for him is Fudge Urban Matte Head Master: The convenient spray formula means you can direct the product exactly where you want it, whilst a medium hold factor ensures hair still has natural movement. 

Tom Fletcher

The musician and song-writer has started a new career as children book’s author, following his wife’s passion for the baby’s world. His hair? A lot of volume on the top. The right product for him is the Fudge Urban Anti-Gravity Powder: this fine powder root booster is ideal to take your style to new heights. Apply to roots for instant thickening and structure. 

Andy Murray

The UK tennis champion recently revealed that his children are the motivation for his recovery from the latest injury. We are used to see him always unbreakable and focused on the pitch but not with his kids, they always know how to soften him. Andy’s hairstyle can be replicated with Fudge Urban Texture Junk: for defined and separated hair with heaps of texture, this styling paste will give maximum texture and control whilst keeping hair silky.

The new extension means you can now take the train from Cheltenham Racecourse to beautiful Broadway, and enjoy a little piece of quintessential British history – when the steam train was once an indispensable part of Britain’s daily life.
