INTRODUCING BOSS THE SCENT ABSOLUTE

MAGNETIC. DARING. SENSORIAL. UNEXPECTED.

Push the senses to the next level with BOSS THE SCENT Absolute: two new, intensely seductive
fragrances For Him and For Her, darker, richer interpretations of the original scents. The story
of #AugmentedSensuality continues as BOSS Parfums introduces the next phase of the sensorial
journey. 


A LEGACY OF SEDUCTION

The 2018 campaign of BOSS Parfums illustrated the transcendental power of BOSS THE SCENT
in the digital age. Surpassing borders and igniting our deepest desire to disconnect from our
online lives and connect once again in the real world. In this new chapter of the
#AugmentedSensuality journey, “The Passion”, our duo push their relationship one step further
by challenging their senses to go deeper and live an absolute night.


THE SENSES AT NIGHT

In this fast-paced world full of distractions, we seek stronger connections. Memorable. Lasting.
Sensorial. As night falls, it brings more daring, unexpected ways for us to fully explore our
senses. Heightened by the intrigue of dusk, the next chapter of #AugmentedSensuality unfolds.
Under the cloak of darkness, they experiment with new, stimulating sensations, reaching a new
level together.


NEXT LEVEL SENSATIONS

Reprising their roles, Jamie Dornan and Birgit Kos come together again as the BOSS man and
woman.  Tonight is the night to discover and explore. To challenge each other, experimenting
with new sensations to feel something new. Together.  More intimate, magnetic and seductive. Pushing all their senses to the excess for a night of absoluteness, they play with light and music, whispering to each other, the sound of
ice crackling, sending a shooting tingling up their spines. With a caress of the hand and a stroke
of the hair, the thrill of each other’s presence becomes electric. The warmth of the other, the
anticipation of getting closer, magnified by the sound of their voices and the smell of each
other’s scents.


BOSS THE SCENT ABSOLUTE: FOR HIM AND FOR HER

Crafted by perfumer Bruno Jovanovic, BOSS THE SCENT Absolute For Him opens with a spicy
Ginger freshness that meets with the aphrodisiac heart notes of Mondia root and Maninka fruit,
while a deeply masculine and ruggedly coarse Vetiver shines at the base. The most sensual
expedition for BOSS THE SCENT so far, the dark amber juice is housed within a dark taupe flacon
and finished with a dark metallic cap.

Crafted by perfumer Louise Turner, BOSS THE SCENT Absolute For Her opens with a creamy
Honeyed Peach note, which cuts through the warming heart of roasted Coffee. In the base, a
smooth and feminine Vanilla envelops the more masculine Vetiver to create a magnetic
addiction. More mysterious and darker than its original counterpoint, this rich and intense
interpretation offers a level of absoluteness. An extreme. The scent is presented in a glass
flacon featuring a dark plum gradient and finished with a dark bronze cap.

Christmas Gifts For Him – What To Buy

From Teens to Grandpa: our Christmas gifts for him have everyone covered.

Most of us find this a difficult task; buying Christmas gifts for him that aren’t socks, quirky gadgets or vouchers. That’s where we come in! We’ve made it easy with our affordable gift ideas for the men in your life. And remember, you can even have your order gift wrapped by the allbeauty Elves, just choose the option at checkout.

Christmas Gifts For Him

Take Good Care of Yourself

For the gym-goer, the man who travels or guys who groom, a skincare set makes a great gift.  Elemis The Super Man contains facial wash, moisturiser and body wash, and is great for keeping skin happy (especially for men 30+ ). Or you could plump for a set that comes with a washbag for an added bonus. Gift it alone or team it with the latest book from an Insta fitness guru. You can take a look at our men’s skincare sets here.

 

The Fragrance

It’s a traditional present but such a great one. Here’s your chance to give a statement gift or a mini treat, and one that will last well into New Year. Finding one fragrance to suit most people should be impossible, but not when you have Issey Miyake L’Eau D’Issey Homme! We’ve never met anyone who didn’t love it; warm and woody with fresh lavender notes and a base of sandalwood and cedar, L’Eau D’Issey oozes class, sophistication and quality. If you’ve no clue but you do want a quality scent, this is it. Check the full range too because it’s also available in gift sets. Fragrance doesn’t have to be expensive though, and for a budget option or mini gift you could look for a 30ml  travel size or choose from 1000+ lines at allbeauty – check the full range of men’s aftershave here.

The Hairbear Bunch

For guys who love their haircare, there’s a world of products to explore, from styling to gifts and sets. For a gift under £10,  label.m Matt Paste is your go-to: this ultra-popular styling paste is great for short styles and creates edgy, textured hair. For everyday haircare this salon size duo from experts TIGI cleanses and helps repair damage. Plus the large salon size means they’re unlikely to run out anytime soon, ideal for those living away such as Uni students. Team it with sci-fi socks and a great book.

Keep It Clean

Bath and body gifts are always a safe bet, since we really hope everyone showers! Christmas is a chance to splash out with a luxury product he wouldn’t normally choose. It’s also a chance to gift something relaxing and ‘me time’. Molton Brown is an excellent starting point and this body wash was created just for men, based around a Thai citrus fruit. Uplifting and relaxing, it’s a super-indulgent change to his usual supermarket brand. Bath and body gift sets can be as fun or as serious as you like. They’re also ideal for the houseproud man (like this handwash duo) or stressed out Dads! Great to gift with with bathrobes, new bedding and home furnishings.

Generation Z (that’s anyone born this century)

Like all of us, younger giftees appreciate luxury. This fragrance set by supercool brand Abercrombie and Fitch is a great choice, with top notes of gin and melon, and base notes of suede, musk and amber. Haircare by TIGI, and grooming by WAHL (we love this trimmer for face, beard and hair) will also go down well. And if they’re struggling with problem skin, a gentle hand in the form of Salcura Antiac, Peter Thomas Roth or Clinique for Men will be appreciated.

The Sports Star / Winter Sun Enthusiast

For the winter sports fan or year-round surfer, there are plenty of gifting options. In addition to that new rash vest or those snazzy goggles, add in some skincare products he can use and enjoy. This SPF50 clear spray from Ultrasun is waterproof and resistant to towel-drying. Or, for the winter sun seeker, an SPF50+ formula will see him through the heat of Asia, Australia and beyond, alongside a coffee table travel guide. For those who like to travel, there are plenty of options at allbeauty, from travel skincare sets to travel scents and even travel haircare. Here are some ideas to start you off.

The Nature Lover

Organic and natural products are hotly in demand but the guys don’t get left out. For the man who appreciates his natural habitat and prefers his products kind to the Earth, Good Day Organics are a great place to start – we love this Sharp Dressed Man travel tin.  For those who work long hours or may struggle to sleep, this Neom Organics Scent To Sleep spray is a must. L’Occitane skincare, bath & body, and Paul Mitchell haircare are also brands to check out.

Have we inspired you with any ideas? We hope so! And don’t miss the allbeauty Christmas shop with plenty more ideas.

Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar Review – Fragrance For Men

Our Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar review looks at this timeless fragrance for men. Who made it, who wears it and what does it smell like??

Claire Head of Social @allbeauty Flowerbomb Review Our Van Cleef and Arpels Tsar review is by Claire, allbeauty Head of Social Media, with honorary guinea pig Peter, Head of Design.
Claire reviews Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar Eau de Toilette 100ml

Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar Review

Confession time: this fragrance has totally slipped under my radar – big thanks to Peter, our Head of Design, for pointing it out to me. Also apologies to Tsar fans out there, collectively tutting… The Tsar fragrance was launched in 1989, so it’s my guess that back in the 90s it was thought a bit too 80s, however at 18 years old I say that makes it a classic.

Created in 1989, Tsar heralds a strong and definitely unmistakable identity.
– Van Cleef & Arpels

Van Cleef & Arpels are a very high-end French jewelery company, in existence since the late 1800s. Designing pieces for royalty to the rich and famous (and combining both when they created Princess Grace of Monaco’s wedding set), they’re to be found in luxury boutiques around the world.

Inside the Van Cleef & Arpels boutique at 20 Place Vendôme, Paris.

Created by the nose of Philippe Bousseton (who has previously worked with Davidoff), the official notes of Tsar by Van Cleef & Arpels are:

  • Top Notes: Artemisia, Coriander, Lavender, Green Notes, Neroli, Bergamot, Rosemary, Cinnamon
  • Middle Notes: Carnation, Juniper Berries, Tarragon, Orris Root, Jasmine, Caraway, Lily-of-the-valley, Rose, Geranium, Pine Tree
  • Base Notes: Leather, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Amber, Patchouli, Musk, Coconut, Oakmoss, Cedar, Vetiver

In fragrance family terms, Tsar is a Woody Aromatic scent. The packaging? Modelled on the Art Deco period of the Twenties, it’s a weighty emerald green glass, with gold lettering. Think quiet, solid and stylish. Fans of history and architecture will totally appreciate these lines.

Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar Review

But what does it smell like? Two words spring to mind: ‘familiar’ and ‘pine’. Tsar is one of those fragrances you spray and say “oh it smells just like…..” but you can’t quite place it. For me, there are throwbacks to Paco Rabanne Pour Homme of the 90s (in a good way). Fresh, clean, forest scented, with an oaky-mossy base. For a fragrance that isn’t citrus, it’s incredibly clean. Like you’ve soaked in the bath and it’s clean sheet night. In the interests of research, we sprayed it onto Peter to get his opinion and note the dry down. On first spray there was that strong, fresh, pine scent again. However fast forward around an hour and Tsar had changed into an oaky-woody scent (though still remaining fresh). In the interests of honesty, Peter tells us he wasn’t sure about this fragrance when we first spritzed him. It was possibly a little too old and (in his words) “soapy”. But after the dry down, his opinion had done a 180 and Peter is now a fan, hurrah (or should we say huzzah…)

Who should wear this fragrance? Men who like to smell fresh and clean. Older men and those who like more traditional scents. We’re not afraid to use the words ‘retro’ and ‘old school’ here. This is a daytime scent we think, suited for straight after the shower.

If you like this then you’ll also like: Mr Burberry by Burberry

So did I like it? Yes. Would I gift it? Yes, but more likely to someone who preferred their classic old-school fragrances, or who likes to smell clean and fresh without announcing they’re wearing a particular branded scent. To put it simply, if he still hankers after Old Spice and Brut, then Tsar is the sophisticated upgrade!

More importantly, would Peter buy it? Yes, and in fact he did!

You can shop Van Cleef & Arpels Tsar at allbeauty.

Men’s Party Season Hair – Keep It Simple

At this time of year we’re all working hard, which often means leaving the office late. Heading from office to party or from gym to party? Look for products that multi-task.

Men's Party Season Hair Paul Mitchell Mitch Double Hitter is a shampoo and conditioner in one, with a fresh, clean scent. It also gives the hair some weight (so no annoying fly-aways) and is perfect if you’re heading straight from work or the gym and need a quick shower!

The conditioning ingredients also detangle and leave a soft, light finish.

Want to gift? Paul Mitchell Mitch Double Hitter is available in various sets and also in a salon size.

No time to shower? Try a dry shampoo such as Label M Texturising Volume Spray to give an instant refresh, plus added volume and texture.

For styling, use a product that can be re-worked. Celebrity Men’s Grooming Expert Diana Schmidtke recommends Paul Mitchell Mitch Clean Cut.
Men's Party Season Hair

I like using Mitch Clean Cut because it’s a pliable moldable paste. It allows for movement and what’s great about it is girls will be able to run their hands through your hair all day without it getting sticky or stuck! It’s really easy to reactivate with water so after the gym or after a workout you’ll be able to restyle it before you go out on a date. And it won’t flake or get too sticky.

We also love: Label M Matt Paste & TIGI Bed Head Men Pure Texture Molding Paste.

Men’s Party Season Hair – Style Basics

  • How you style your hair in the morning will set you up for the day. A simple trick for extra hair volume is to tip the hair upside down when blow drying. Or, if you prefer, you can use your fingers to pull the hair upright, whilst aiming the heat at the roots.
  • For even more volume, use a volume mousse on wet hair then blow dry to activate. The volume will last until your next wash. Try Label M Create Volume Mousse.
  • If you have thinning hair, try Paul Mitchell Mitch Construction Paste. This product (for messy/undone hair) contains tiny fibres that add more volume.

Men’s Party Season Hair – Up Your Game

Going to a big event and want glossy, celebrity locks? Celebrity Men’s Grooming Expert Diana Schmidtke recommends Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray and here’s why:

If you want to have perfect looking actor hair at your next event then I suggest you pick up some of this… it’s a lightweight spray shine, it’s a product for finishing so you want to use it at the end. For the perfect natural looking healthy hair. It’s not going to ruin your already existing perfect looking style. What it is going to do is add a perfect amount of shine.

mens party season hair

TIP Don’t be afraid to use hairspray, especially if you have longer layers on top. A quick blast will keep your style in place; we love KMS HairStay which adds hold and shine and has a pepper and pomegranate scent (it also easily brushes out).

Men’s Party Season Hair – Application Is Key!

  • As a rule, warm a 5p to 10p sized amount of product in your hands before applying. Ideally, the product should almost disappear before you apply it. That way you get even coverage.
  • Work product into the roots and then up to the tips – it’s super important to get product onto the roots, (especially if it’s a hold product or the hair just won’t stand up!).
  • More is not more! If your product isn’t giving you the hold you want, try something else. Otherwise you’ll just weigh down the hair and make it look greasy.

The Best Men’s Hairstyles For Grey Hair In 2016

We pick the best men’s hairstyles for grey hair in 2016. Grey hair has never been so popular (for men or women), so don’t hide it, embrace it!

So many great men’s hairstyles for grey hair, you’ll be spoilt for choice…

This is a great example of a beard and haircut combination. There’s no reason not to wear this look at any age, we think it’s pretty timeless. To style you need a product that will hold but allow movement. We recommend Label M Power Paste or Fudge Matte Hed.

This younger hairstyle looks great with grey hair and is pretty hard to get wrong! Use a styling product that allows reworking so you can refresh the look any time. You can’t go wrong with Label M Complete Matt Wax.

This tattooed silver fox is a 48 year old Italian model, but his style is for anyone. Short sides, long on top, it works with or without the beard. Maintain grey hair with a dedicated men’s grey hair shampoo.

Ok here’s a tamer version, but we hope you can see the idea. Grooming just works with absolutely any hair colour. If you are sporting a beard, make sure you treat it with beard oil or pomade to condition and style. You can shop our selection of beard care right here.

If in doubt keep it short. Some messy texture wax is all you need to keep this style looking great, choose a product like best selling TIGI Manipulator.

Tips For Grey Hair
It may surprise you to know that once hair goes grey it does change. Hair becomes more wiry and coarse and frequently drier than before. In addition, you can often see yellow or brassy tones that may not have been there before. To keep grey hair manageable make sure you use a dedicated shampoo that softens and brightens. Many dedicated grey shampoos also contain subtle lightening products that gradually take out yellow tones. Used over a period of time, you’ll definitely see the colour of your hair getting sharper. You might also find some products contain violet or purple tones – don’t be surprised! Violet is a great compliment to white or grey hair and can give it a subtle shine. To see our range of dedicated men’s grey hair shampoo just click HERE. For hair that’s almost completely white, we love the White Hot Hair range.

These are our favourite men’s hairstyles for grey hair but which is your favourite? Let us know in the comments below.
