Update: Ewan McGregor for Davidoff

Davidoff_adventure_ewan_mcgregor
A few weeks ago, I posted on the first pics from Ewan McGregor’s campaign for Davidoff’s ‘Adventure’ fragrance. So when this TV advert rudely interrupted my usual Sunday morning T4 routine, I was surprised to realise what it was. Unlike most luxury label adverts, this little film is subtle, succinct and pretty spectacular.

Korres Absinthe Shave Cream

Wilkinson Swords’ Fight For Kisses video promotes smooth skin and fighting toddlers

I’m not sure what disturbs me more about this video, the implication that baby-son and father must resort to blows in an Oedipal struggle for the mother’s affections, or simply that the kid reminds me of that freaky dancing-baby hallucination from Ally McBeal. Otherwise, the video, promoting Wilkinson Swords new Quattro blades, is neatly done, and slightly amusing. There’s also …

Protect your looks from the cold with Brandish’s winter grooming guide

Last night was the first time in over six months that the household flicked that magic switch and turned the heating on. With the idea of climate change constantly niggling at my conscience, I’d rather have put a jumper on, but I was outvoted by the three girls I live with who consider anything below 20 degrees as "freezing". But …

Armai’s Attitude fragrance maintains balance of making you smell like a real man without stinging people’s eyes

If it hadn’t been for the Zippo lighter-styled bottle itself, I would have never bothered to pick up the new Armani Attitude eu de toilette (£24.99/30mls) and have a whiff. I’ve never been a fan of Armani scents – they’ve always smelled like something my dad would splash on before a night out. Whisky, fags and cheap cologne is never …

Diesel Fuel For Life homme spray

I’m not one for dousing myself in vats of aftershaves or colognes – I’m sweet enough already. Although my girlfriend may argue that point, the truth is, I just don’t like many of the bottled scents out there today, a lot of them just smell a bit, well, horrible. But there are a few out there that quite take my …

Bring out your inner child with Crayon cologne

Catching a whiff of Crayon, that waxy, subtly spicy odour, never fails to transport me back to infants school circa 1987. Figuratively of course (duh). To me, it smells like evil – I absolutely hated school and any memories I have of it I prefer to keep compressed into my subconscious where they can remain until I have a nervous …

Rude Man soap for hair, body, not piece of mind

Rude Man hair soap (£7) will insult you, then cleanse every conceivable surface of your body. "Your hair sucks" says the packaging, "And we know you stink". Right on, because, as everyone knows, men smell. If you don’t then either a) You’re female b) Pre-pubescent. Other than the offensive packaging, I love the fact that the soap is designed for …
