Christmas Selector : Beauty products and Cosmetics
This selection of Christmas gifts is for all those men out there who like to partake in the occasional bit of male grooming. The use of male cosmetics has become part of the daily routine for most of us these days, and the luxury labels and brands keep putting even better products on the market…
After the success of the female perfume, ‘Untitled’ (which can be used by men too), Maison Martin Margiela decided to put the fragrance into a candle. The scent reveals fresh green notes, with base notes of Galbanum, mastic, green boxwood, incense and sour orange. The candle itself is absinthe green.

UNE BOUGIE CIRE TRUDON x GRIPOIX
Cire Trudon, a label we’re very fond of, has teamed up with couture jeweller Gripoix , which is celebrated for their glass paste jewels (that have already dazzled the most famous Couture houses such as Chanel and Balenciaga), Gripoix has created a colourful and shimmering snow star to crown the Cire Trudon ‘Nazareth’ candle, which has an orange, clover and cinnamon scent.
Vendue en exclusivité à la boutique Trudon, 78 rue de Seine (75006 Paris).
The perfect gift for any house-warming party but also for Christmas, an oval of scented wax encased in white porcelain, you can bury it in a drawer or slip it into your wardrobe, and it will give off one of the 5 fragrances available: rose, lavender, berry, fig or 34 Saint Germain. The scent lasts for several months and the happiness you feel when you open your cupboard every morning will never be the same again…

‘Made to measure glow’ is what it promises on the packaging of this Givenchy gel, infused with tiny spheres of brown pigment that melt with direct contact to the skin. This unisex concept acts like a very subtle foundation, but without the heaviness and it doesn’t stain! So let’s just keep this between us then guys, yeah?
