MONTBLANC’S LEGEND NIGHT

LEGEND is the latest fragrance from Montblanc and the latest addition to my personal collection. [true life: I’m addicted to colognes]. What I was looking for when I took LEGEND with me was a perfume to wear for a night out of town, a perfume that will transition from day to night easily. Most guys tend to wear just one cologne, I, on the other hand, am not like most guys. I like to wear different perfumes for different events depending on situations or time of the day. Every guy should own at least two, one for the day and the other for the evening. Legend for me is the perfect cologne for any evening event, from a soirée to cocktails at the beach bar. LEGEND has a strong presence without being overpowering, it has a softness to it that gives it the important versatility characteristic. LEGEND is very masculine, fresh, lively, sensual, modern for a confident man. Quite irresistible when combining with your own natural scent. I picked up my LEGEND NIGHT by Montblanc …

Bye Bye Raccoon Eyes

You wake up, wash your face and stare at that mirror at those deep dark circles around your eyes. They bring you down and ruin your day before it even started. You feel like you’ve tried it all and are ready to give up. Well, don’t! There’s a solution for it! Some of us suffer from this condition due to genetics, while others get these dark circles after a long day of work, having a bad night of sleep, or just simply because you’re partying too hard at Gusto (AKA ME!) These dark circles or how I prefer to call it the raccoon eyes is a common condition that doesn’t discriminate gender, age or social status. Meaning, anyone can get them. The solution to avoid these dark circles is the Kiehl’s Age Defender Eye Repair. This cream will work wonders. It is a lifting, anti-wrinkle, dark circle reducing eye cream for men. How does it work? You apply it every day, and that is the only way it will work! This is not considered makeup to …

CLINIQUE FOR MEN

My face tends to look shiny, and the heat in Aruba doesn’t really help. I recently tried the Oil Control mattifying moisturizer by Clinique For Men which I really love for two beneficial reasons, moisturize my skin and keeping my face from looking oily and give it a more matte finish. You can wash your face multiple times and no matter how clean it is it will get shiny throughout the day, it’s only natural. However, you can control that with the new cream from Clinique. Some guys use some grooming products and make up applications, I typically use some products for photo-shoots and such, however, as far as a daily routine goes– I usually apply this Clinique moisturizer after the shower in the morning. I picked up this product at Penha a while back and have been using it religiously since. So, kids, if you’re looking for a cream that will help with the shine and keep you looking proper at all times, look no further. All those photos and selfies that you will …

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 …

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 …

BEARD OIL | KIEHL’S

If I had a penny for every time my friends or strangers ask me what I do to groom my beard… I always recommend beard oil, is the best and the only thing you need. Finally a well-known brand like Kiehl’s put on the market a beard oil. I tried it for a couple of weeks, I used 3 times a week, sometimes more, depending how many times I go to the beach. It is very lightweight which is important, you don’t wanna feel oily, it softens the facial hair to keep it looking nice and groomed. It is very important to use beard oil also to help the skin, some of the itchiness, when you are starting to grow your beard, is because it gets dry. Kiehl’s oil has an earthy blend of fresh Sandalwood, Cedarwood, and Eucalyptus essential oils. The Pradaxa oil softens and smooths coarse facial hair and nourishes the skin underneath while gentle exfoliating actives smooth dry, itchy skin.Blend of Cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Eucalyptus essential oils provides a fresh, earthy aromatic experience. …
