THE RIGHT SCENT FOR YOUR GENT
GERANIUM POUR MONSIEUR – I have never been one for men who douse themselves in cologne. It’s rather a girly thing to do, in my mind. Of course I’m also not very fond of guys who smell like the whiff you get ofÂ aÂ sweaty cab driver on aÂ stickyÂ August day either. Deodorant is a good thing. However,Â I made a detour through Barney’s men’s shop recentlyÂ -Â it was purely by accident I promise – I took a wrong turn past the Kiehl’s counter en route to the bar at Fred’s and got out on the wrong floor. Something simply marvelous caught my nose and I zeroed in to find out what. It was Geranium Pour Monsieur from Frederic Malle Editions de Parfums. This pleasant nose candy is light and floral but not in a frilly sort of way, and with a touch of fresh mint which makes it ever so manly. $135 is nothing to sneeze at as much as I’d like to think that the males in my life are worth any price tag. I had a sudden urge to buy some and carry it around in my bag to make theÂ habitats of menÂ kinder smelling places to go, but it’s a little high to spend on a room freshener. Perhaps I jest, but you get the point.
FINAL VERDICT – RDW (RUN DONT WALK) – THIS STUFF SMELLS AMAZING. Ladies if you want an exclusive, elegant and timeless guy gift, look no further.
