The celebration season is upon us, and it’s the time to get noticed. Put the best you forward with a little help from my favourite grooming products for men this season.
Bvlgari Black Cologne
Whatever the season throws your way, make Bvlgari Black Cologne your fragrance of choice. This hyper-modern scent combines refreshing top notes of citrus, neroli and chilly rum, before unveiling a woody base of sandalwood.

Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF 15+
Kiehl’s re-invents its best-selling moisturiser for men with the inclusion of SPF in time for the Australian summer. This non-oily, vitamin enriched moisturiser energises the skin and revitalises the appearance. Within minutes signs of fatigue begin to disappear leaving your skin looking refreshed – this is exactly what’s needed during the busy celebration season. Facial Fuel is formulated with Chestnut Extract which improves the skin’s barrier function, helping skin to retain and restore its lipids. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel SPF 15+ 125ml $43. Available from Kiehl’s counters, online, David Jones and Myer department stores.
Solid State – Aviator

This season, I’m not going anywhere without the Aviator scent. Blending striking notes of citrus, woody aromatics and a touch of spice, this fragrance is perfect for any occasion day or night. Throw this solid fragrance in your work bag or back pocket and you’re ready for any moment your on-the-go lifestyle throws at you. Solid State Aviator 100g RRP $39.95.

Clarisonic Alpha Fit
So many benefits in one compact device. The Alpha Fit by Clarisonic is engineered to get men’s skin looking cleaner and healthier. The Alpha Fit cleanses skin 6x better than hands alone, allowing for a closer shave and cleaner beard while loosening dirt and oil and removing impurities from pores. The Clarisonic Alpha Fit brush head features shorter bristles for men’s resilient skin to reveal smoother skin and a better shave. A few of my favourite features of the Alpha Fit include its compact size and new USB-enabled charger – that’s one less plug you have to carry when you’re travelling. Clarisonic Alpha Fit $315. Available from the Clarisonic website and selected David Jones department stores nationally.
Tom Ford Noir de Noir All Over Body Spray
Smelling irresistible just got easier with the Tom Ford Body Spray collection. This season, be dark and indulgent with the Noir de Noir fragrance. This scent marries deep, feminine florals with the masculine earthiness of black truffle, vanilla, patchouli, oud wood and tree moss. Spray it all over the body after a shower or whenever you want to invigorate the skin. It’s lightly scented and ensures you smell your best at each encounter. Tom Ford Noir de Noir All Over Body Spray 150ml $105. Available from selected David Jones and Sephora stores nationally.
LAB SERIES Skincare for Men Cooling Shave Cream
Cool off this summer with an Invigorating Shave thanks to LAB SERIES Skincare for Men. The latest shaving innovation from this trusted skincare brand for men is its Cooling Shave Cream. This ultra-rich concentrated cream cushions the skin allowing for a closer shave and maximum protection. It features a high-glide formula allowing your razor to cut with ease, while the cooling effects of menthol and peppermint extract calm skin relieving redness. Lab Series Cooling Shave Cream Tube 100g $32. Available from selected David Jones department stores nationally.
No Pong All Natural Anti-Odorant
Say no to odour for up to 12 hours this summer with No Pong All natural Anti-odourant. While most over the counter deodorants feature aluminium, parabens and other hidden nasties, No Pong is 100% natural. Formulated with organic coconut oil, baking soda, cornflour, beeswax and essential oils, it acts as an antiperspirant by creating an invisible layer of protection which won’t leave a chalky white stain on your clothes. It’s easy applied like a moisturiser or body cream – just apply to fingers and rub in. Best of all No Pong features a fresh gender-neutral fragrance which is refreshing and subtle. No Pong 35g RRP $5.95. No Pong All Natural Anti-Odorant is available online.
Rituals Samurai Yuzu Shower
Since discovering the Ritual’s shower foam range for men earlier this year, I have to admit I’m obsessed! They feature a gel to foam consistency which works up a nice lather on the skin. The Rituals Samurai Yuzu shower is the perfect choice for the shower this season. It features energising notes of organic Mandarin and Yuzu, which are refreshing especially during the warmer months. Best of all this shower foam lasts up to 50 washes and can be thrown in your gym or travel bag without weighing your down. Rituals Samurai Yuzu Shower 200g RRP $15. Available online from the Rituals website along with Rituals stores.
