What’s that perfume that you wear?

So… I’ve been browsing for new perfumes and I visited Penha to try and purchase a few for the upcoming season.  Here the top 3 that caught my attention and nose. Dylan blue by Versace. Here’s to hoping this whole outfit ends up on the floor wearing the new fragrance Dylan Blue from Versace. The scent has a fresh Citrus vibe that is both masculine and versatile, and most importantly it blends with your natural scent and isn’t obnoxious by any means. If you want a cologne that will make a statement- Dylan Blue is for you. L’Envol Eau de Toilette by Cartier Last year I had an opportunity to try and wear L’Envol by Cartier, an elegant and woody cologne that is sweet, masculine, nocturnal and proper for the dapper gentleman. L’Envol Eau de Toillete is a little fresher and vibrant, however, still maintains a few characteristics of the original. This is a fragrance you don’t wear to the office, but an important cocktail reception or gala, or even a special date. The cologne …

Creating Memories at The Ritz-Carlton Aruba

I recently had the opportunity to have a staycation at The Ritz-Carlton here in Aruba. The four-day stay was one of the most relaxing and fun breaks I’ve had in a while. The Ritz-Carlton Aruba is located on Palm Beach in Aruba, which is such a beautiful place to be on the Island. The hotel features two beautiful swimming pools with Cabanas, One for adults and the other for families with children. We all love kids, but sometimes we just want a little peace and quiet.  The rooms in the hotel are super spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable with wonderful views of the Caribbean sea. The hotel has many restaurants such as BLT Steak & Solanio with tasty menus. Overall it’s a dream hotel for obvious reasons, but what makes The Ritz-Carlton Aruba stand out from the rest is the staff. From the bell-boys to the waitress at the Cabana by the pool, the staff is the most attentive, considerate and kind workforce I have ever came across in Aruba. You truly feel like a king while staying at The Ritz-Carlton …

FASHION AND CHAMPAGNE

You have to see them, the Renaissance Island has never looked better. Hope you enjoy the post and click on your favorite image to get details of what I’m wearing.

WHAT TO DO IN ARUBA

  Soo… Actually, people message me all the time asking what to do and where to go while they’re visiting Aruba, I always try to reply via private message or I comment back but I thought it would be nice to have a blog post dedicated to the beautiful Island of Aruba so I can share with you where I go and what I do, but these are 100% my favorite places, restaurants I go once in a while, the beaches I prefer, the places where I take my friends to take pics and where I shop… When is it a good time to visit? Any day, we are lucky to have good weather all year long. It’s always sunny, it’s hot but very windy so it balances things out, so book your trip any month of the year… but where are you staying? That’s the important question. The Hotels Aruba has many hotels, apartments, and villas. I have stayed at the Renaissance Aruba Resort and Casino many times, you all know that by now,  but, …

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.

FIRST INSTINCT GIVEWAY | PENHA & ABERCROMBIE&FITCH FOR MEN

So… Penha and I have decided to partner to give away the newest fragrance from Abercrombie & Fitch, this brand new perfume was designed by Phillippe Romano; he said: “I wanted to create a modern fragrance that balances both the fresh elements of fougère with oriental warmth. All the notes together, create a scent with worldwide appeal for the Abercrombie & Fitch man and beyond.” First Instinct, an oriental fougère, is intended for “the confident man who is not afraid to express his feelings.” The top notes include an aromatic gin & tonic accord combined with Kiwano melon, so it makes it perfect for a night out in my opinion but I used it in the mornings also. If you have been following me on snapchat, you have seen me spray it after the gym. Middle notes offer spicy Szechuan pepper, airy violet leaves and tangy citrusand.These ingridients will get the attention from everybody. Now, the basenotes are comprised of sueded musk with raw amber. The beautiful bottle has the appearance of undulating water. The silver …
