Give DAD a TIE_BREAKER– With Grooming Essentials From GREAT Lines! Fashiontribes Beauty Buzz Fathers' Day Gift Guide ! — Pick Up HOT STUFF from Studio Fred Segal, Beauty Collection and Mass Markets! Fashiontribes Beauty Buzz MEN'S Grooming Blog!
Father’s Day is upon us and there are a few of us — ok more than a few– who have some last minute shopping to do. Don’t fret! Fashiontribes has some great ideas to order or go buy at stores in the LA area or at least tell you about products that you can find near you!
From Studio at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, comes a hot new fragrance from L’Artisan Fou de Absinthe. This new fragrance is something explosive yet ambiguous. It’s both icy-cold and yet scorchingly hot. Extremely suitable for men, it might be "borrowed" by the most audacious of women–for the fun of wearing it.
Top note: icy-cool alcohol, surrounded by an exceptionally hypnotic bouquet of absinthe (a green, slightly bitter note), a spine-tingling of angelica, crisp blackcurrant buds with subtle fruitiness.
Heart Note:The ‘hot-cold’ feeling is continues with a biting star anise contrasted with four spices alcohol (a unique cocktail of pepper, clove,
nutmeg, and ginger) and underscored by patchouli.
Base Note: a blazing harmony of crackling dry pine needles mingling with a woody/sweet scent of cistus and a the fruity essence of fir balsam sap.
This Eau de Parfum is available NOW at L’Artisan boutiques and select stores like Studio at Fred Segal. Suggested retail price: 100ml spray ($125); 50ml spray ($90) Or www.artisanparfumeur.com
Want to get dad, grad or any man in your life something really cool and different? Check out KORRES at either Studio at Fred Segal or another spot across town, Beauty Collection Apothecary at Farmers Market at Third and Fairfax.
Korres is a natural line of great body and skincare products. Their collection for men is splendid and works so well. In keeping with the previous "absinthe" theme, check out the Absinthe Shave Cream that helps improve razor glide and makes for a close, comfortable shave without a lot of razor burn. It’s a brush-less, non-foam product and has a milder pH so it helps prevent roughness and drag on the skin. The Absinthe extract soothes and protects the skin along with the jojoba oil, vitamin E, Aloe and provitamin B5. $28.00 for a high tech airless tube that prevents air from getting into the tube and keeps it fresh.
Another essential from the Korres Men’s Collection is the Marigold AfterShave Balm. Marigold’s antiseptic properties and Witch Hazel’s astringent action protect against irritations. Active Aloe and provitamin B5 soothe and moisturize skin and prevent the after-shave rash. $22.00
Available at Beauty Collection Apothecary, as well as many other online and brick and mortar retail stores.
