He is one of the most important men (if not the most important man) in your life. For me, it’s that dapper advertising executive with a taste for fine cigars and an appetite for stirred Manhattans named Mr. Chat. He dons a shawl collar tuxedo like nobody’s business and sports a classic fedora straight out of 1942. Call him old fashioned if you will, but his charming personality and “ladies first” approach has gotten him this far and that’s why I love him. Who isn’t attracted to the Humphrey Bogart and Frank Sinatra type?! It’s so classic.
Whether your Mr. Right is your husband, fiance, boyfriend or lover be sure to pamper him this Valentine’s Day with a gift that radiates finesse and channels a bit of that old world charm. If he’s anything like Mr. Chat, he’ll love you for life. Here’s a look at three of my favorites for men this year.
Launched in 2015, BOSS THE SCENT is the newest men’s fragrance from German luxury brand, Hugo Boss (Mr. Chat’s go-to for classic tuxedos). The evocative scent boasts the aphrodisiac Maninka fruit, an exclusive ingredient from Africa resembling passion fruit and rum, while the captivating aromas of lavender, leather and spicy ginger make for a magnetic ménage à trois. BOSS THE SCENT is available exclusively at Macy’s for $85 (3.3 oz).
The Art of Shaving Lexington Power Collection includes the must-have razor of the year. I love, love, love when Mr. Chat is freshly shaven. I’ll admit, I kiss him for hours. The Lexington is the perfect tool to sustain that smoothness. The exclusive New York inspired design emits gentle micro-pulses to deliver a clean shave and embraces a Flexball technology to pivot along the contours of a man’s face. The set, complete with badger brush and versatile stand, is available for $400 at The Art of Shaving stores.
The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Kit is one of my favorite all-inclusive grooming kits for men because it includes these product and accessory essentials: pre-shave oil, shave cream, after-save balm and a badger shaving brush. The full-size collection is available for $120 at The Art of Shaving stores.
