Arrived!! L'Eau d' Issey Pour Homme Summer Limited Edition Fragrance

Summer is finally here and it's that time of the year when I get excited about the summer editions of some of my favorite fragrances. Issey Miyake's L'Eau d' Issey Pour Homme, a minimalist classic and favorite of mine for many years, brings it's 2014 Summer edition to stores now.... and I have to say, grab your flip flops and run don't walk for this one. L'Eau d' Issey Pour Homme Summer Limited Edition is bursting with freshness with notes of kiwi, a touch of spicy coriander and a hint of bitter grapefruit and nutmeg. When the scent dries down, I get a smooth sensual fragrance where all of the spice and fruit notes mellow out to a clean woody accord of vetiver (one of my favorites for summer) and cypress. This is a solid fragrance that will bring you through summer days and evenings with a vibrant, sensual and fresh vibe.

L'Eau d' Issey Pour Homme Summer Limited Edition 4.2 Eau de Toilette is $68.

Shaving Your Privates Never Felt So Luxurious

One of my favorite Tom Hanks movies is Saving Private Ryan. The porn version of this movie is Shaving Ryan's Privates. On that note, and just in time to prep your bod for summer... The Art of Shaving has introduced the beach season's grooming essential, the Body Razor.

Driving a razor over the body is a lot different than shaving your face... and the razor you use should be different too. The light weight handle and anti-slip grip of the Body Razor gives you control even in the shower while the pivoting head maintains excellent blade contact over the body for a new kind of smoothness.

Here are a few tips from Master Barbers on shaving:
  1. Shave during or after the shower. The steam helps prepare the skin for shaving and helps make the body hair a little easier to cut.
  2. After shaving sensitive areas, use moisturizers which are soothing and calming to the skin and will help to prevent irritation.
  3. To enhance your body soap experience, instead of using your hands, try lathering up with a shaving brush. Shaving brushes help build a great lather and lift the body hair.

The Art of Shaving's Body Razor is available at The Art of Shaving stores and online.

Forget Sochi! Check Out My New Chubbies Old-School Olympic-Inspired Sport Shorts

I'm into my new gym shorts from a new brand called Chubbies. Ok, think old-school Olympic and retro basketball shorts from the 70's and 80's designed with modern technology that keeps the boys in place and the skin dry. Bring it on with a pair of mid-calf socks or even a pair of no-shows and the look is rockin'. These comfortable and light weight shorts are perfect for outside the gym and just hanging out too. Can't wait for the summer to wear them with a pair of flip-flops. The cut is different than most work out shorts — a little shorter— just try them for your self. I bet you'll love them too! Check out all the colors!

Wrinkle Free Zone— Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer Eye

I'm seriously loving this new Shiseido Men Total Revitalizer Eye cream. It's become the power tool in my morning and nightly grooming ritual. The cream feels so rich and dense yet it goes on light enough to penetrate the skin leaving no greasy, shiny residue on the skin's surface. I noticed the effect (the effect I'm referring to is a slightly dewy, fresh plumped eye area) immediately but after a few weeks of using it, my under eye area is noticeably firmer and smoother.

Specially designed for men to over power wrinkles, dryness, sagging and dark circles. This lightweight yet deeply hydrating cream plumps skin from within, firms and lifts the eye area and reduces the visible signs of aging.

Recommended Highly.

$45 for 15ml tube.
