Xmas - James Bond - 007

James Bond – 007 Quantum

I have had more compliments for this fragrance in 2013 than any other! It’s a great staple and perfect for day or night. This smart gift set contains the fragrance, shower gel and Bond cufflinks to match. At the top lie the fresh scent of apples which lead onto cardamom at the heart. Sandalwood and moss combine at the base for a well-rounded aromatic fougere fragrance. I really like it. 50ml EDT + 50ml Shower Gel + Cuffinks

Shave 1.2.3 Kit

If you are looking for a quality gift of distinction this year – then look no further. You really do get the best shave if you follow the traditional routine by lathering up, using a brush and taking the time and effort to shave. The brush is badger and this kit from Baxter is truly great.

The Shave 1.2.3 Kit includes:

– Baxter Best Badger Shave Brush
– Super Close Shave Formula
– After Shave Balm



Xmas - David Beckham Classic

David Beckham – Classic Gift Set

David Beckham Classic is a woody, citrus and spicy fragrance. Great for the daytime, would suit a guy under the age of 35 (in my humble opinion), so gift buyers take note.  The set comes with the 40ml EDT and 200ml Body Wash
