If there was ever a sign that the men’s grooming category is on fire, consider this: Amazon just launched a curated section on its site with the purpose of making it easier for you to get the products you need. The Men’s Grooming Store carries a wide selection of men’s brands such as Baxter of California, Nivea for Men, Dove Men+Care, Norelco and Gillette to name a few.
You maybe asking yourself what makes the Men’s Grooming Store so different from logging onto Amazon.com and typing in any brand you’re interested in? Within this dedicated shop, users have access to how-to guides and tips and tricks from experts, etc. I’d say that’s a nice added benefit. Who knows, maybe you’ll read some of my tips there sooner or later. (A blogger could dream, right?)
Men tend to surf the web quickly and this new store makes it easy for us to jump around and get to the point. Searchable categories include skincare, haircare, shaving, oral care, bodycare and kits & gift sets. I think you’ll appreciate that. One thing I’d like to see is more of the little guys getting space on there but it’s early and I’m an optimist. In the interim, finding some of your beloved brands just got a little easier.
When you feel a brand has done right by you, anticipation builds when you learn a new release is coming. If you’ve been following Fragrant Moments, you know I’m a fan of Eau d’Italie. Several of their fragrances are a part of my collection and I suspect Acqua Decima will be too.
With notes of lemon, mandarine, mint leaves, neroli, petitgrain white wood and vetiver to name a few, this sounds like it’s beautifully built for the dog days of summer. This is the tenth fragrance in Eau d’Italie’s collection (Acqua Decima means Tenth Water in Italian) and its inspiration comes from a stretch of land that links the Amalfi coast with the Bay of Sorrento called The Path of the Gods.
Acqua Decima launches in the U.S. in July 2013 and will retail for $140.
We’re all being bombarded by Black Friday deals, it’s that time of year. But here’s one I think New Yorkers will find rewarding.
Do not check your browser, you’re seeing correctly. That is Elle magazine and that is Sarah Jessica Parker on the cover. Allow me to explain. Continue reading
By now I’m sure you’ve noticed the change that has occurred at retail. It went from summer to Christmas and every year it seems like it’s happening earlier. Well, no matter how you feel about that, your favorite apothecary Kiehl’s has a holiday promotion you should pay attention too.
Kiehl’s has tapped New York Pop artist, Kenny Scharf to redesign the packaging on its popular Crème de Corps collection. This promotion is part of their annual holiday tradition with philanthropic ties. 100% of the worldwide net profits or up to $200,000 will be donated to children’s charities. According to a press release in support of this promotion, “In the U.S., proceeds will support RXart a non-profit national organization, committed to fostering artistic expression and awareness through the challenging, yet rewarding task of engaging young patients through contemporary art in pediatric hospitals. RxArt is dedicated to placing original fine art in patient, procedure and examination rooms of healthcare facilities, for the engagement and comfort of patients.”
The Creme de Corps collection with Kenny Scharf’s designs are available now on Kiehls.com.
After hearing about Brad Pitt appearing in Chanel N° 5 ads, I was curious to see what they would come up with. Once I finally saw the ad, I knew it would only be a matter of time before Saturday Night Live spoofed it. Last night Bruno Mars appeared on the show and SNL actor, Taran Killam went to town in a series of ads that mock the campaign. Enjoy.
I remember watching my first James Bond film with my brother and father. I ooh and ahh’d at Bond’s charisma and charm, his ability to get the girl and his slick wardrobe, of course. As entertaining as it was then and has been over the years, I never thought about how Bond smelled…until now. Continue reading

Another Fashion’s Night Out has come and gone and in my own tradition, my night had a fragrant twist. With so many events happening, I decided to take the prudent approach and choose wisely. I went to one event. Continue reading
I was recently asked to participate in a fun assignment for Lifestyle Mirror. They wanted me to suggest a scent based on what the weather would be for a particular day. I thought to myself, “I love this one.” The twist though, the site caters to women. Could I pull it off? Whenever I walk into a store, I’m all about finding the men’s section and seeing what’s being offered to us. Nevertheless, what I ended up suggesting was a new scent by Atelier Cologne called Rose Anonyme. It is simply fantastic and the best part, it can be worn by either men or women. Continue reading
