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 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.
FERRAGAMO, Salvatore Ferragamo’s new fragrance for men, evokes the artisanal heritage of Italy by playing with sophisticated contrasts. The distinctive Gancini buckle embellishes the modern bottle it comes in. The inspiration for this perfume was the idea of men as masters of their destiny.
UOMO Salvatore Ferragamo Urban Feel encapsulates the urban edge and charm of a metropolitan city. Addictive energy and elegant comfort in a contemporary scent capturing the salty and mineral notes of ozone and driftwoods, to enhance the striking coffee aroma. A new audacious chapter in the Uomo Salvatore Ferragamo franchise.
The perfect balance between untamed masculinity and Italian elegance. The quintessence of the UOMO man, an edgier and darker chapter for a rich and bold lingering sensation. Deeper and more magnetic, a new composition diving a step further into audacity without betraying Ferragamo’s Italian craftsmanship and legacy.
A fresh and daring creation full of energy, like the man who wears it. For the man who is confident, free and modern. Crunchy, green violet leaves are laced with cardamom and lemon for an immediate vibrant freshness with an invigorating heart creating a stylish and refined scent.
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.
Is tanning on your to-do list for your Christmas party prep this year? If so, feast your eyes on these stunning products to give you that summer glow all through the winter. Yes, we could embrace the natural colour, but a subtle golden kiss wouldn’t hurt anyone now would it? If you’ll be wearing a Christmas party dress showing a fair amount of skin too, why not go for that gorgeous golden glow?
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.
When it comes to Christmas party makeup, it’s usually safe
to say that we’re all after that extra special glow. Whether it’s with a touch
of shimmer or a vibrant lipstick, it’s nice to have that one guaranteed occasion
every year when you know you can go all out and live your best glamourous life
for the evening.
If you’re a fragrance fanatic it’s likely that you know
just how important different scents are when it comes to making memories.
Some say Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year and many agree. It’s
a festive fun-filled season of indulging, treating your loved ones and celebrating
together. Christmas parties are always some of the most memorable events with
legendary stories that will live on forever especially in the workplace. So,
why not mark the occasion and treat yourself to a new fragrance?
Christmas calls for all things luxury. What better gift to give someone than something with that extra special edge? Every year, there’s always that one present we just fall in love with and want to have on display for a good week for easy access and the beautiful view of course. When it comes to beauty, it doesn’t really get any better. Indulging in luxury beauty is a form of self-care and we’re all especially in need of that this Winter.
