This week we’ve got two things on our minds: escaping the cold, and nailing great hair. For the former we bring you a slick new wash bag, for those of you jetting off somewhere sunny, and a scent that evokes warm, spicy and rum-soaked Caribbean nights for those that are staying put. Meanwhile, great hair comes courtesy of thickening shampoo that helps prevent drifting hairlines, and a good hair day in a can.
Malin + Goetz Dark Rum eau de parfum
With Dark Rum, Malin + Goetz has revisited that classic aftershave ingredient, bay rum, and recreated it for a modern audience. While bay rum is distinctively woody, sweet, and spicy, Dark Rum has been blended with notes of zesty bergamot and plum for a more fruity effect. Undertones of worn leather and amber give a warm and sensual finish. The warm breeze of a sultry Caribbean evening, distilled into a bottle.
Fudge Urban Matte Head Master
A good hair day in a can. Formulated with a unique blend of polymers, Matte Head Master blasts hair with instant texture for an easy-to-achieve laidback look. The medium hold ensures hair still remains flexible, and the spray mist also waterproofs your hair by creating a humidity-resistant shield. Great for reviving second day hair, and bringing life back to a style that’s been flattened under an all-too-neccessary-right-now beanie.
Want Les Essentiels ‘Kenyatta’ wash bag
With the relentless pace of the international menswear show circuit taking us to London, then Pitti, then Milan and now Paris, travel is very much on our minds this week. And that’s not to mention those people hitting the slopes, or jetting off for some winter sun. Refresh your carry-on with this sleek wash bag from Canadian accessories experts Want Les Essentiels de la Vie. In achingly-on-trend khaki, it’s made from waterproof neoprene, and features sharp leather trims. In short, the kind of bag that we’d hide something over 100ml in so that we got the chance to show it off at airport security.
Patricks SH1 thickening shampoo
Fortified with the brand’s trademark ‘Patricks Recovery Compound’, a plant-based formula powered by red clover and Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 that works to minimise hair loss, enhance strand mass and reduce inflammation, this is the shampoo to try whether you’ve noticed a few extra follicles in the plughole or you want to add some big-time Seventies volume to your barnet.
