L’Envol by Cartier

Launched in summer 2016, Cartier added a new fragrance for men, L’Envol. Inspired by ambrosia, known as the nectar of the gods. L’Envol is both strong and mellow with sweet resins set against airy musk, is all about violet leaves. Mathilde Laurent developed this fragrance, she surrounded violet leaves by semi-sweet woods to make them smell milder, warmer, noble, slightly sweet. L’Envol is sophisticated and very Cartier, this is, with all sincerity, and by a large margin the best designer release of 2016. It is unquestionably masculine and blended to perfection. The extraordinary bottle is a capsule contained within a detachable glass dome, which can be carried independently and is refillable. The bottle is a classic and stylish Cartier, with its famous guilloché motif on the bottle stopper while the dome shows once again Cartier’s expertise in glasswork. It is available at Penha Mainstreet and Palm Beach Plaza. Feel free to pass by and try it.

MAISON CAULIÈRES

A few months ago I was introduced to MAISON CAULIÈRES. My first impressions based on their website were really great, I thought it was an outstanding product based solely on the descriptions of each scent. A good Illustration of a product, specially those who you cannot appreciate just by their looks, is really important. Packaging isn’t everything when it comes to perfumes, it helps a lot but still is a mystery when you purchase fragrances and cosmetics online. I had the joy to get one of their dry oils, body mist, bath oil and some other MAISON CAULIÈRES products, each of different scents. I was pleasantly astonished by the different aromas and scents, all different, all very distinctive and unique. You can expect to have an extra-sensorial experience while using them. You know what they say about aroma therapy, these products can and will relax you with their perfumes. I have to say, I trust many skin products, some are better than other but here’s the great thing about MAISON CAULIÈRES, they’re not just good, they’re fragrances, their …

Grooming, perfumes and stuff…

I like to use beauty, grooming and styling products… you need to look good if you wanna play this game and you always can use some help, not all of us are like you, my beloved reader, naturally beautiful…. some of us need some extra help :p For my beard here’s the Brooklyn Grooming’s balm. You know those fly-aways hairs after you trim? This balm helps to put them in place, also makes your beard softer, for me that I am constantly sunbathing at the beach this is a great product. Also you can style and shape your beard with it and it looks glossy and shinny, is not that strong but it helps a lot and is good for your skin.I use it probably 3 or 4 times a week.
