FERRAGAMO: The New Must-Have Fragrance For Him

FERRAGAMO: The New Must-Have Fragrance For Him

FERRAGAMO is the new fragrance for men that embodies elegance and modernity, breaking stereotypes and embracing a creative and sensitive soul, sending a message to today’s man: be whoever you want to be. FERRAGAMO redefines masculinity, outlining the personality of the Ferragamo man, a polyhedral soul whose vigour comes from his internal contrasts: strength and sensibility, creativity and pragmatism, confidence and vulnerability. Free-spirited and daring, this ideal man is the master of his success and a symbol of authenticity.

Hero Fiennes Tiffin fronts the new FERRAGAMO campaign. The young British actor embodies the ultimate Ferragamo man in every aspect, from his actions to his words: “I want to be the best version of myself. I want to do everything I love, as best as I can”.

“A Statement Blend For Being Who You Want To Be” #JustMyself

Who do you want to be? Elevating the House’s timeless codes with a sharp contemporary twist, this blend is conceived for a free-thinker that follows his instinct and rules while embracing every new challenge with no hesitation. His restless spirit leads him to look at things from different angles, with unstoppable creativity and boundless curiosity. As he lives in constant motion through dynamic connections and emotional experiences, becoming aware of who he wants to be, he always leaves a lasting impact wherever he goes.

The Juice

The explosion of Mediterranean citrus with vibrant bergamot and lemon paves the way to an unexpected core. The floral violet accords combine with the intense FERRAGAMO leather note, in a blend that immediately evokes Ferragamo’s artisanal heritage. The intense notes of musk and vetiver complete this creation, in a heightened sensual dimension.

Shower Goodness

First step, shower. Whether you’re prepping in the morning before work to change quickly after and head right to the venue or are lucky enough to have the time to nip home, great shower products that feel as good as they smell are essential. There’s nothing better than that fresh-out-the-shower feeling with skin just as soft and silky as you dreamed of.

After treating yourself to a luxurious bath and body product or two, if you’re after that first-day squeaky clean hair ready to be dried and styled later on, here are some incredible products for different hair types that will soon become must-haves when you get a taste for how fabulous they are.

If you’ll be wearing a Christmas party dress showing a fair amount of skin too, why not go for that gorgeous golden glow?

FD Recommends:

Gatineau Golden Glow Gradual Tan

An All Over Pamper

A classic mistake we tend to make if getting our nails done too far in advance, now that’s perfectly fine if you’ll be treating yourself to a salon trip but if it’s a DIY job then it’s worth planning it out. The last thing you want to do the night before your Christmas party is your nails and then scuff them from all the buffing and tanning the next day. So, after the shower, hair washing and glow up, now would be the best time to do them.

If you are working with budget in mind the Lacoste Pour Homme is a great steal.
