Merry Christmas guys!, I just wanted to remind you that the countdown to Christmas begins less than 3 weeks away and if like me you’re still hunting for the ideal gifts as presents I’ve come across these amazing Christmas gifts set from Ted Baker London.  Just the other day I had the pleasure of receiving a gifted parcel from the brand and what a surprise it was being so close to my Birthday last weekend which made my day. Ted Baker unveils their exclusive Christmas Gift sets for the Festive Season at Boots UK available to buy now in store or online.

Design led, on trend and highly giftable everyday treats that lead to No Ordinary Experience.

I’m a great fan of their menswear and lifestyle products too which includes also grooming and accessories.

I recently discovered the brand also has various standalone Barber Shop’s Ted’s Grooming room where you can experience firsthand the finest grooming by Master Barbers such as authentic prestigious Turkish barbering skills inspired by quintessential British style.  I’m very keen to try this out as I’ve heard you will enjoy the best haircut in London to Traditional Wet Shaves.  Ted’s Grooming Room offers gift vouchers, Hair products, gift certificates and more to satisfy even the most dandy gentry debonair about town.

 

Expect and invest in fine new formulations at Ted’s Grooming Room that burst with active ingredients’ including making a long lasting impression with Ted’s invigorating signature cologne perfected in London and inspired by Turkish aftershave.

It’s a good job then that Ted Baker has released its Festive Gift Set’s just in time for Christmas and my favourite pick from the limited edition range exclusive to Boot’s UK has to be their ‘Flight of Fancy’ Men’s Grooming Kit. What I love about this range is that this gift set comes equipped with everything a Ted clientele needs, including a manicure set to keep you perfectly groomed on your travels.

In addition the set comes complete with graphite black hair & body wash plus matching fragrant body spray that has an invigorated scent with aromas of enticing smoky spiced blend of pink pepper, tobacco and rich cedarwood for the man on the go.

The Eagle illustration on the packaging cleverly suggest it’s a gift set for made for travel as you can see where flight of fancy gets its name from. It’s definitely for those who love to jet set and travel on vacation either for business or pleasure making it the perfect travel companion as an addition to refresh your grooming kit.

Ted Baker began life as shirt maker during the late 1980’s in the UK as quintessentially British Brand with its presence in over 380 stores and concessions all around the world.  I would definitely say that Ted Baker’s Lifestyle Collection should be part of every discerning man’s lifestyle from his wardrobe to essential grooming routine from distinct clothing collection to accessories to dress yourself or your home.

Make Ted Baker a must have style statement for your bathroom this Christmas, with design led, on trend prints and fashion inspired colour pallet. I have to say that trying on the men’s grooming ranges deliver both formulations and compelling fragrances with a contemporary edge taking the lead from fine fragrance.

ACQUA DI PARMA COLONIA ARTIST EDITION BY CLYM EXCLUSIVE TO CHRISTMAS | GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM

ACQUA DI PARMA GETS CREATIVE WITH FESTIVE CHEER FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 618 views

 

For Christmas 2018 the brand has introduced their exclusive Home and Travel Collection in collaboration with the acclaimed British Artist Clym Evernden who worked with Fenwicks on their window displays and Stylist magazine.

British Artist Clym collaborates with Acqua di parma for their limited Edition Colonia Collection this Holiday Season.

Clym was commissioned to create Acqua di Parma’s new campaign for the Limited Edition Colonia Artist Collection to capture the essence of the sunny sophistication of Italy and liberated feeling that inspired his little yellow bird illustration. Acqua’s products are mostly unisex so the packaging reflects that and was created in mind to be neutral so the products are accessible for everyone.

New arrivals this season include a deodorant just recently added to the range which includes 32 fragrances in the whole collection so there’s allot of choice to impress even the most discerning gentlemen in your life.

As gift set’s seem to be the most popular choice this festive season I wanted to mention the ones which stood out for me which were the smart gifts as Clym limited edition hand wash and hand lotion, scented candles colonia x Clym and Essenza Intensa Pura x Clym gift sets come with 100 ml fragrance, gel deodorant and shower gel.

 

 

Gift packaging Seasons Greeting’s in four different languages Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese for a personal touch.

 

The Bespoke option gift box is available too where you can choose 3 or 4 products encased with a ribbon without tissue which in my opinion seems smarter in terms of presentation. It does not stop there so in fact it just gets even better where the personalisation of gifts this Christmas is pre-monogrammed on Hat boxes. By observing the packaging it has seasons greeting’s in four different languages Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese includes limited Edition products and colonia handwash.

 

 

 

So just to recap what’s on offer this Christmas it’s the Christmas gift sets x 4 Colonia, Intensa, Essena and Pura, to smart gift sets / home, Colonia Sandelo and bespoke gifting.

 

 

Acqua di Parma Colonia Classic is the Award Winning Classic Fragrance at the GQ Grooming Awards 2017

During my window shopping trip over the weekend I realised that the Blue Mediternia Collection is only exclusive to House of Fraiser which are citrus, aromatic, sweet scented and fruity distinguished by the names Mirto di Panrea, Aranci Di Capri, and Fico di Amalfi to recreate that feeling of being holiday once you get there.

Citrus aromatic scent is fresh and full of life with bergamot where the woody smells of vetiver, lavender and lemon leave that long lasting impression of sophistication.

Trust me on this one, as you’ll want to try all 6 in the range too from Colonia Assoluta, Colonia Intensa, Colonia Essensa, Colonia Club and Colonia Pura. For those of you interested in the history of the brand Acqua di Parma’s Colonia Classic fragrance is 102 years old which makes it a classic heritage brand to rival other designer fragrances on the market as the Award Winning Classic Fragrance at the GQ Grooming Awards 2017.

Interesting fact – Colonia represents the 1st 100 years of the past and Colonia Pura the 2nd 100 years in the present future. I could go on and on but as the main focus of this review is to tell you all about the Limited Edition Christmas Collection you’ll want to take home and own which you and your loved ones can share together. These days the popularity of catering to meet the demand for gender neutral products is especially common in both men and women’s fragrances which can also be considered unisex which is something you’ll both want to own together because it’s very special. So, I think that’s pretty much Christmas shopping sorted and various item’s I’ll add to my wish list then!
