July 2019’s Best Men’s Grooming Drops
Anyone else complained about the heat today? It was 38.1C in London so it is well justified if you did. Apparently, the police were called out for 500 people who stormed Brockwell Park lido desperate to cool down. Your grooming game probably went out of the window but if you’re looking to freshen and fix up for tomorrow, here’s some grooming drops to turn your focus to. So, following on from my June 2019 grooming drops, here are some of the best new releases in men’s fragrance, skincare, and hair care that we recommend you reach for during July 2019.
Aime L’Homme (skin + energy)
Aime Skincare have formulated a supplement to combat fatigue and stress, whilst boosting endurance and concentration. Featuring probiotics, maca, burdock, vitamin b and zinc, your skin will be glowing from the inside. I particularly noticed how quickly my hair and nails grew, a great sign that my body was getting the nutrients it needed. Aime also supply a convenient travel pouch for taking your supplements on the go.
Lôr Paris – Série 001
Lôr Paris are a new French perfume brand who have released their first collection. Série 001 comprises of five fragrances; Animal Doux, Dark Mimosa, Musc Fruite, Oud Latte and Petale De Oud. My favourite was Oud Latte, the best example of an oud and coffee combination I’ve had my nose on. Not only are the fragrances superb, but the bottle design deserves its own mention. Jet black with a gold logo, it really does look as great as it smells.
Memoize – Imperia by Rowan Row
London fragrance brand Memoize have collaborated with influencer Rowan Row. Imperia features notes of citrus, clary sage, mint, leather and moss. Imperia was created over a period of 12 months, aiming to create a fragrance that represents Rowan Row and fits his lifestyle. An easy reach scent that’s a perfect daily wear for the man about town.
Monat Black Beard Oil
Monat Black is a beard oil that moisturises using lightweight oils, softening the beard and skin to keep you looking well groomed. The key ingredients are carrot root extract, avocado oil, argan oil, olive oil and rosemary oil. After just two uses of Monat Black, my beard was feeling softer and smoother, and has become a go to in my grooming regime.
Ole Henriksen – Truth Collection
From the vivid orange packaging, to the fruity and zingy scents. Everything about the Ole Henriksen truth collection is invigorating and uplifting. Packed for of vitamin c, the trio of Truth Serum, Banana Bright Eye Cream and C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme give your skin a glowing boost, that feels luxurious from application until the end of the day. Pick one, or treat your skin to the full experience.
Creed’s Summer Lineup
I couldn’t let the sun pass us by without mentioning the fantastic summer fragrance offerings from the house of Creed. Transport yourself to the Caribbean tropics with Virgin Island Water, or sail around the Mediterranean with Erolfa. Better yet, enjoy the beautiful gardens of Italy with Neroli Sauvage. Each are unique, enveloping and luxurious. Treat yourself this summer.
Clive Christian – Around the World Discovery Set
Around the World by Clive Christian takes the wearer across the globe, an exploration of the world’s finest and rarest ingredients. Around the World consists of 4 x 7.5ml vials; Cypress, Jump Up and Kiss Me Hedonistic, C Woody Leather and 1872 Masculine.
