Histoires de Parfums – MEH. This was close to a FAIL, but it smelled just ok after a while. Initially it was just too old-manish to me. Apparently it was inspired by Hemingway, but I think fragrances have evolved a lot since then.
Towel Dry Mid-Styler – MEH. This one was close to a WIN, but it just doesn’t provide enough hold for me. Maybe I just need to use more? It is water-based though, which is nice because with water you can restyle your hair throughout the day if it gets messed up.
VitaMan – WIN! It just smells amazing. It smells citrusy like lemongrass. It’s a cleanser for both your body and face which is just man-like efficiency at its best. Natural ingredients act both as an exfoliant and as an astringent.
LUXE City Guides – FAIL! Smartphone or tablet + internet = no need for pocket city guides. This was a problem that was solved like 5 years ago.
Topo Designs dopp kit – MEH. As you know I think the dopp kit’s dead, but this one’s pretty small and it’s nylon so I’m actually gonna use it for the gym. A dopp kit for the gym isn’t completely necessary either, but hey it was in my box so I guess I’ll use it.
