Romance is big business.

According to statistics from the Romance Writers Of America®, the annual total sales value of Romance novels in 2013 was as much as $1.08 billion.

You may be skeptical of this fact—particularly if you’ve never even considered buying a romance novel (or watching a chick flick) in your life.

That’s normal…84% of romance book buyers are female.

Yes. Women love romance.

And if you are a man who loves women, you had better belly up to the romance bar and get down with your Hallmark self.

People often ask me how to build sexual tension with a woman through texting. It’s an excellent question, and there isn’t a simple answer. But I’ll try to lay out a process for you.

First, though, let’s look at why people fall in love and why real-life romance is even more powerful than movies.

Love Is a Highly Addictive Drug

Love is arguably the most mystical and potent drug in the world—and always has been.
Did you know that the brain craves love?

Arthur Aron, a psychologist at the State University of New York, states that

“Intense, passionate love uses the same system in the brain that gets activated when a person is addicted to drugs.”

The ‘pleasure center’ of the brain, which deals with motivation and rewards, has a powerful reaction to the people we love. The drive to win them over is a primitive response that produces intense cravings. We essentially become hooked on the object of our affections.

Looking For Love vs. Natural Attraction

When we are actively seeking love, we look for certain traits in a person. These might include humor, kindness, empathy, intelligence, attractiveness, and so on.

But sometimes we fall in love when we’re not even looking for it. It arrives like a thief in the night, on the dance floor, at a restaurant, in an elevator, at work. Anywhere. It might even hit you at the office printer where Amber from Human Resources shows you a side to her you never knew existed.

The chemistry between a man and a woman plays a crucial role in making this happen.

How Chemically Compatible Are You?

According to experts, we pick our mates based on how compatible their chemical makeup is with ours. In a nutshell, we all have “chemical families” and pick partners with chemicals that complement our own. This means that a person with high testosterone levels would likely choose a mate with high estrogen levels.

But psychology also has a part to play. We often choose a mate according to a mental “love map” in our mind, a list of traits that exist subconsciously and that details the exact characteristics we’d like to see in a perfect partner.

So, Is It Out Of Our Control?

If falling in love is driven almost entirely by chemistry and our psychological makeup, does this mean we have no control over it whatsoever? Does it mean that it’s pointless to try and keep love alive by romancing a woman via text messages?

Well, not quite.

Researchers say you can trigger another person’s body chemistry to keep love alive by:
Keeping things fresh: Dopamine is released in abundance when we try something new and exciting. By texting a woman novel stuff, she hadn’t seen before—or didn’t expect to see from you—you’re ramping up her interest.

Text: “Can I trust you with a secret?” (text 1)

After she begs you for the secret

“I think you’re pretty hot ;)” (text 2)

Then you can tease her further by texting

“But I’m not that easy, J.”

Keeping in touch: Oxytocin, a.k.a. the love hormone or cuddle hormone, is associated with bonding. You can increase oxytocin levels by holding hands, playing “footsie,” putting your arm around her shoulder or even just touching her leg.

Or you can create an image of touch via Text:

“Gentle kisses on the small of your back.”

Keeping things hot: Flirting with her via text makes her want even more flirtatious behavior. The more you drive her desire, the more she’ll want from you.

Text: “Last night in my dreams, you were amazing.”

How To Give Her What She Wants

Man Texting In Jacket

So, if you want to keep oxytocin and dopamine pumping through her veins, you should start by giving her what she wants.

Scratching your head? Completely lost?

Luckily there is hope, and it all boils down to four key ingredients. According to sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox, Ph.D., director of the National Marriage Project
at the University of Virginia, women have four basic romantic wishes:

  • Loving devotion in a committed relationship
  • Thoughtful, honest behavior
  • Generosity of spirit
  • Satisfying sex

Yes, guys, I said it: good sex.

How does this translate to texting? I’m sure you can figure out the last one; nevertheless, all four of these fundamental wishes tie into my texting tips below.

Don’t get lazy if you’ve got a woman who is clearly interested in you and is chemically, psychologically, and emotionally compatible. You still need to hit the sweet spot to keep the love flame burning strong.

General Rules Of The Game When Texting Women

Before I get into the specific types of text messages that you should be sending her, there are a few general rules of the texting game that you will need to keep in mind:
Be Clear

Maybe you feel like texting her during your coffee break to tell her you’d like to take her out this weekend or to let her in on your latest sexual fantasy.

So you rattle one off before being herded into an impromptu team meeting for the next two hours.

The problem? Your rushed, rambling text may have left her confused as to what you meant, and you’re not able to reply to her questions to clarify things.

When she’s working, maybe sitting in front of her computer with her eyes blurring over, the last thing she needs is to try and work out what you’re going on about.

If you’re out for romance, make sure it’s obvious what you mean. If you have an insane day ahead of you, the best route may be to make her smile with a sweet and simple “Good Morning” message thanking her for a fun weekend and leave it there.

Text: Good morning, my little Julie, Thanks for organizing everything with our friends; you make every weekend so special. Big kiss, Peter

Watch Your Punctuation

Man Texting At Table

Did you know that the innocuous period you tagged at the end of your text may have made the whole thing look serious or insincere?

For example, compare these texts:
“I had a great time last night.”
“I had a great time last night!”
“I am thinking about you.”

“I am thinking about you… J”

Be vigilant with your punctuation.

I have a friend who is one of the nicest guys in the world. But his text messages come off as monotone or even cold. He doesn’t use capitals, and he throws periods everywhere. thanks. sure.

When in doubt, add a smiley.

Text Her at Night

Unlike busy, ambiguous mornings, evenings are almost always a good time to text the girl you like. At this point, work is over, the gym is done, and she’s settling down in front of the television in her casual clothes. She’s eaten dinner, she’s comfortable, and she feels good. She is in the right mood for romance.

Moreover, she’ll be slipping into bed soon. Start texting her in the early evening, stoke the flames of desire, and keep her thinking of you as she drifts off to sleep. Start slowly to gauge her mood – “This sofa would be a lot more comfortable with your head resting on my shoulder and my arms around you” and build up when you get a positive response.

She might even dream about you.

Especially if you text:

Sleep tight. Promise that you’ll dream of me too.

Be Patient

This is a BIGGIE. I had a friend who couldn’t get this one girl out of his mind. She was driving him crazy with her sex appeal and intelligence. He wanted her all for himself.
Whenever she was out with her friends or otherwise occupied, he would start texting her. I told him to cool it, let her have her own space, and wait until she finished doing whatever she was doing.

He felt as though if he didn’t text her, she’d forget about him—as though she might meet another guy while she was out and get married the next day.

His paranoia had gotten the better of him, and he’d forgotten this fundamental rule: when you’re romancing a girl, there is a right time to text her, and there is a wrong time.

And trust me, nothing kills a romantic message quite like a follow-up text that demands to know where she is.

For example:

Text: “You looked gorgeous in your little black dress last night… I wanted to kiss your soft lips and hold you in my arms underneath the moonlight. I kept my curtains open all night and gazed at the star I’ve named after you. I’ll cherish that star forever.”

Then, after she hasn’t texted back for two hours, you kill the buzz with this beauty:


Pick a time when you know she’s going to be free, and wait.

Don’t Just Flirt with Her

Man Texting In Bed

Going back to the three ways of keeping love alive, keeping it fresh is especially important with texting. Sure, there will be times when you’ll flirt with her. Perhaps you’ll flirt with her often, but you mustn’t flirt with her all the time.

Constant flirting can get boring very quickly, and it’ll make you sound like an actor reading from a movie script who doesn’t know how to lift his head and ad-lib.
Even if she knows you like her, it’s essential to shift your focus now and then.

It’s okay to ask about everyday things. Ask her how her important meeting went. Take an interest in her life. Encourage her and be her biggest fan.

Text: You showed real courage Friday. I’m glad you didn’t let your colleague push you around.

Text Messages That Build Sexual Tension

So, now that the game rules out, let’s tackle some creative messaging ideas (a.k.a. WHAT in the Sam H. you can send to get those love hormones pumping!).

#1 The Thoughtful Text

Infographic- Build Sexual Tension Through Text-after work

Women love emotional honesty, and they like men who are at ease with their own emotions. As I said earlier, this is one of our four fundamental wishes, so take note as you learn how to build sexual tension through text!

Thoughtful texts are really easy to compose. You could take an interest in how her day is going, offer to cheer her up or send her a loving text that lets her know you’re thinking of her.

If she has just attended a function that you know she dreads, ask her how it went.
The key is to be specific. The more specific you are, the more personalized your messages are, and the more genuine and thoughtful they come across as being.

If you are completely out of creative ideas (it happens to the best of us!), then send her a verse from a romantic song.

This could be a song you both love—”your” song—or it could be one of your personal favorites.

Text #2 Show Vulnerability

Infographic- Build Sexual Tension Through Text-want to know more

Women also want truthfulness from you, and they’re okay if you make yourself vulnerable before them. Don’t believe me? Check out Corey Blake’s TED Talk, “Vulnerability is sexy.”

Sharing the actual substance of your character is romantic. It builds the trust that long-term relationships have as their cornerstone.

Of course, showing vulnerability can feel risky. When we do so, we expose ourselves more honestly as flawed human beings—which everyone is, despite the images of perfection we feel we need to project. You may worry that showing any weakness will cause her to reject you rather than empathize with you.

However, revealing intimate details about yourself has been proven to build romantic feelings quickly. An experiment by Professor Arthur Arun in which total strangers did just that for half an hour resulted in two marriages! What types of vulnerability can you show? Here are a couple of examples:

“Worried about my big meeting this afternoon…but excited to see you tonight.”

“Not feeling too chipper today, must be missing something (or someone ;).”

Letting her know you’re imperfect invites her to share a similar vulnerability with you as an equal, and together, you can then forge a meaningful connection.

Showing vulnerability can also be just as simple as telling her how much you enjoy her company.

Text #3 Compliment Her

Infographic- Build Sexual Tension Through Text-ridiculously attractive

Women want generosity, which can mean giving your time and appreciation through words rather than gifts.

But sometimes, it’s not easy to know what to compliment when you are communicating with a woman via text. After all, you can’t see her, so you can’t exactly say that her dress looks nice today.

Instead, compliment her intelligence or craftiness or notice something small that she’s recently changed. The devil is in the details. Asking for her advice is a great way to show you respect her opinion. For instance:

“Need help from my favorite fashionista! Big meeting today, was thinking white shirt and blue suit. What do you think? What color tie should I wear?”

Romantic movies are crammed with ideas for compliments if you’re all out of inspiration.

Text #4 Remind Her Of A Memory You Shared

Infographic- Build Sexual Tension Through Text-everything was perfect

While you can’t hold her hand or run your hand through her hair with a text message, you can take her for a trip down memory lane. Shared memories serve as your virtual touch.

Make her laugh by recalling the time you slipped in the snow.

Make her dream wistfully of last summer when you both had the beach all to yourselves.

Recalling intimate details of shared memories puts you at the forefront of her mind and reminds her how special you are to her and she to you. It’s also a chance to get flirty.

Text #5 Tell Her How Much She Means to You

Infographic- Build Sexual Tension Through Text-best qualities

This one is where our wish for commitment and devotion comes in. Women don’t always know how much they mean to you – especially if you don’t tell them!

To really romance her like a gentleman, you should tell her how much she means to you and do so regularly.

Say that you’re having one of those days where you’d be so lost if you didn’t have her. Tell her that your heart just smiled when something reminded you of her.

Let her know that she’s always at the forefront of your mind, no matter what you’re doing during the day.

Text #6 Get Flirty

Infographic- Build Sexual Tension Through Text-real kiss

This tip is a tricky one. How naughty is acceptable?

It depends on who you’re texting and how they’ve reacted to your texts so far. You’ll know from her responses how naughty she wants you to be. Studies have shown that more adventurous women will respond better to direct and overt messages.

If she’s given hints inviting you to turn the heat up a bit, take advantage and go a step further. One emoticon, in particular, can be your best friend when you want to get flirty!

The difference a wink can make is enormous. It can take “nice” texts just far enough into the flirty territory to change the tone of the conversation. Consider the difference here:

“Can’t wait to get to know you better”


“Can’t wait to get to know you better ;)”

Otherwise, it’s better to play it cool. Being flirty via texting can be fun, but it can also kill the romance if she’s not feeling it.

Sound her out first before deciding what course of action to take.

Text #7 The Clincher: Know What She Finds Romantic

In the end, romance over any medium boils down to something straightforward. It might seem obvious, but to be romantic, you need to give your wife or girlfriend the type of romance she craves.

Take the time to learn what she thinks is romantic, and give it to her. Your extra efforts are likely to reap a whole lot of rewards. Here are some ideas:

Did she grow up dreaming of marrying a handsome prince? Become her Prince Charming by sending her romantic bedtime stories when you are apart.

Does she think that romantic gifts are special? Buy her a single unique flower and send it to her with a short personalized note.

Is music the way to her heart? Send her a voice message with a song playing in the background, followed by a cute text saying, “made me think of you.”

Has her job become unbearable for her? Man up and take over so she can relax – pick up the kids, dry cleaning, or hotdog buns without being asked (make sure you send her a sweet text such as, “Go home after work. I’ve got the kids and dinner covered. You can thank me later J”

Romance is about being kind, showing appreciation, and being generous with your feelings and yourself. Take a minute to think about your relationship and how you can show your wife or girlfriend that you are:

  • fully invested in a loving and committed relationship
  • thoughtful and honest
  • generous in spirit
  • eager to satisfy her sexually

Use the above texts to build sexual tension through text and level up your game.

How to wear your watch correctly



As much as you won’t like hearing this, you’re probably wearing your watch wrong.

It’s not your fault; you may have never been taught how to wear a watch properly. After all, there is more than one way to wear a watch.

But how do you know which way is the right way?

Don’t worry, gents; as always, I’ve got you covered. I’m here with the best way to wear your favorite timepiece properly and look as stylish as ever.

In today’s article, I’ll be covering:

  1. Origins Of The Wrist Watch
  2. What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?
  3. Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?
  4. The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

#1 Origins Of The Wrist Watch

old watches

When it comes to wearing a watch correctly, it’s important to note why the wristwatch came about in the first place.

Dating back to the 1800s, the first watches modified to be worn on the wrist were primarily worn by women as accessories. One of the earliest was created by Patek Philippe as a fashion accessory.

At the start of the 20th century, watchmakers became intrigued about using a wrist-worn timepiece for men in the military. They believed it would help them tell time quickly while on the battlefield.

Watchmakers started modifying pocket watches to fit on a bracelet worn on the wrist. Men would not wear the first iteration of the modern wristwatch until well into the 20th century.

Then developed as a ‘trench watch’ for military use, the earliest wrist watches offered something the pocket watch didn’t have – convenience.

After the wristwatch became less of a fashion accessory and more of a functional tool, watchmakers would spend the next century modifying them into the modern wristwatches we enjoy today.

#2 What Wrist Do You Wear A Watch On?

man wears watch

The age-old question: what wrist to wear a watch on? The answer – it depends.

The reason it depends is that since the creation of the wristwatch, men have mostly worn their watch on their non-dominant wrist. And since most people are right-handed, you would wear your watch on your left wrist.

But this isn’t always the correct answer. You may want to wear your watch on the right wrist if you are left-handed. But you may also want to wear it on your dominant hand.

So how do you know for sure?

The most significant benefit of wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is that you can quickly put the watch on and navigate the dial more efficiently than with your non-dominant hand.

Wearing your watch on your non-dominant hand is less likely to damage the watch as you tend to do more with your dominant hand. If you were to wear it on your dominant hand, you’re more likely to scratch or ding the watch than on your non-dominant hand.

So the rule of thumb here is to wear your watch on your non-dominant hand for the best way to navigate and protect your watch.

#3 Should You Wear Your Watch Facing Inward Or Outward?

watch facing inside

The next question is, why would a man wear his watch facing inward on his wrist instead of outward?

This trend is seen primarily in individuals who need to check their watch frequently and in the most efficient way possible. Among the many reasons you should wear a watch, one of the most common is to support you in your profession.

You will see men in the military do this, as it’s easier and prevents sun glare better than when it’s on the outside of the wrist. It also offers faster convenience to other tools on the watch in addition to the time.

Another reason you may want to wear your watch facing inward is that it can help protect your watch from scratches and dings. Again, this is just a preference.

But you’re a stylish guy looking for the best way to wear his watch. What should you do?

The answer here is to wear it facing outward, as that is the most common way to wear a wristwatch. It shows off your timepiece that you love while also still being functional.

Unless you’re in a profession where you need to check your watch quickly while managing other tasks, the best way is to have your watch facing outward. After all, you probably didn’t spend money on that beautiful timepiece to hide its character.

#4 The Stylish Way To Wear A Watch

Now it’s time to find out exactly how to wear a watch in the most stylish way a guy can.

Assuming you’ve selected the right size watch for your wrist, the first thing you want to do is figure out if you’ll be wearing your watch on your right or left wrist.

As mentioned above, traditionally, the watch is worn on your non-dominant wrist. So if you’re right-handed, this means wearing your watch on your left wrist. For left-handed guys, this means your right wrist.

After you figure that out, it’s quite easy. The first thing you want to do is locate your wrist bone.

You want to wear your watch face up just above your wrist bone. If done correctly, your watch should slightly peek out from under the cuffs of your shirt when wearing long sleeves.

Next, you want to tighten the strap so it’s loose enough to be comfortable. You don’t want it so loose it can spin freely around your wrist. You also don’t want it too tight, or it will feel uncomfortable, especially when you bend your wrist.

After doing this correctly, you’ll be wearing a watch in the most stylish way possible.

There you have it, gents.

Now you no longer have to worry about wearing your watch incorrectly.

There is more than one way to wear a watch, so find what’s most comfortable for you personally, and rock your favorite timepiece accordingly.

If you want to take your watch knowledge to the next level, check out this article I wrote about the difference between quartz and mechanical watches.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe Preparation (Buy Now and Get $$$)



We’ve all been there – fall comes around, and you open your closet only to find you have nothing but polos and shorts.

So what’s a stylish guy to do? Pay a premium to build an entire fall wardrobe last minute? Sure, if you’re loaded. But not every guy is that lucky!

Don’t worry; as ever, I’ve got you covered. In today’s article, I’ll show you how to get the best bang for your buck when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

We’ll be covering:

  1. What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?
  2. How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?
  3. Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?
  4. What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

#1 What Are The Advantages Of A Capsule Wardrobe?

man in closet

One of the most common headaches guys run into in their closet is having too many clothing options to choose from but not enough of the right options.

While more options aren’t bad, they can be overwhelming, especially when you rarely wear most items. This is where building a capsule wardrobe comes into play.

A capsule wardrobe is a limited selection of clothing items that complement each other. This means you can buy a smaller selection of items and create a larger number of outfits.

This is crucial to understand because most guys don’t have an unlimited budget for buying clothes. A capsule wardrobe allows you to purchase and use items frequently with little redundancy.

But where do you start in building your fall capsule wardrobe?

#2 How Do You Build A Fall Capsule Wardrobe?

fall clothing items

After you have put together the perfect capsule wardrobe, you can start to add a few fall-specific items. This is done by adding a few staple pieces that complement what you already have.

For most, fall offers mild temperatures mixed with slightly warmer temperatures.

This means that layering will be of the utmost importance because you may leave the house needing a jacket, but it might be warm enough by midday to sport only the t-shirt underneath.

Start with the basics when building your fall capsule wardrobe and add pieces accordingly.

Keep It Simple

man wearing coat

Fall is primetime for layering, so you only need a few outer layers and should focus more on the innermost layers.

You want to make sure that interchangeability is at the top of your list when it comes to your wardrobe. Everything should complement each other for ease of use.

With that said, having a few staples and adding additional items as you change seasons is essential.

For this reason, ensure you have the following items in your fall capsule wardrobe:

  • A dark three-piece suit 
  • A light-colored tweed blazer
  • A leather bomber or biker jacket
  • An overcoat (dark or light)
  • A formal button-up shirt (white)
  • 2 casual button-up shirts (flannel or chambray, you choose)
  • 2 sweaters (1 shawl, 1 crew neck)
  • 2 t-shirts (1 white, 1 black,)
  • 2 pairs of Jeans (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 pairs of slacks/chinos (1 dark, 1 light)
  • 2 belts (1 black, 1 brown)
  • 1 pair of black dress shoes
  • 1 pair of brown oxfords (leather or suede, you decide)
  • 1 pair of sneakers (plain white or brown)
  • 1 pair of military boots (black or brown)

When it comes to accessories like watches, scarves, or gloves, you can use what you have as most men won’t need all of them, so I won’t count them in.

#3 Where Can You Find Deals On Fall Clothing?

clothing on sale

As it is the middle of summer, fall will be approaching quickly.

Now is a great time to snag up some of last year’s sale items at department stores as they usually have sales on previous season items. By now, most men aren’t thinking about what to wear in the fall.

While you still might be able to find good deals on last year’s fall items, it’s usually the most optimal time to purchase these items after the season has ended. This is when retailers try hard to clear space and make room for the next season’s clothing.

When they do this, it is a great time to get excellent deals on items that have just gone out of season.

Another great option to buy men’s clothing is online at your favorite retailers, as they will often have sales and discounts on items they have in their online inventory but are not yet in prime season.

The most expensive items in your fall capsule wardrobe are the ones you want to focus on, as you can often save a significant amount of money out of season for them.

These big ticket items include:

  • Your dark three-piece suit and blazer
  • Overcoats and jackets
  • Dress shoes and sneakers
  • Boots

These items will be some of the most expensive items and can be found discounted out of season. Put these at the forefront of your fall capsule wardrobe search.

#4 What Are The Best Fall Capsule Wardrobe Essentials?

man shopping for clothes

You want to adhere to a few staples when building your fall capsule wardrobe.

Since fall weather can vary, layering will be essential. These few items are crucial as mainstays that can be layered with other items within your wardrobe.

For example, if you experience a rather chilly day in fall and need to wear a suit, an overcoat is essential as that outermost layer because you can simply remove it when you no longer need it.

When it comes to the concept of layering within your fall capsule wardrobe, you want to make sure you nail these following items.


man wearing overcoat

Having a good overcoat to complement your fall capsule wardrobe is crucial.

The overcoat acts as the outermost layer and will be removed whenever you go indoors. This makes for a great option as you can wear it with anything as it offers excellent versatility.

When searching for the perfect overcoat, it’s essential to know your size as they usually come in sizes of suit jackets, not regular sizing. After you’ve nailed the size, focus on color.

Dark-colored overcoats tend to be the most versatile. However, a light camel color can work as well. Stay away from patterns with overcoats as the goal is to be as versatile as possible.

Leather Jackets

leather jackets

A good leather jacket goes a long way. You can choose a leather biker jacket or a leather bomber; it’s your call.

Biker jackets can be slightly harder to pull off as most of the time, they will have a larger and more aggressive collar, but they still look great.

A leather bomber jacket is an excellent option because it looks great on all body types and often has more options than biker jackets.

For color, opt for black or dark brown, as that gives you the most versatility with other items in your fall capsule wardrobe.


man wearing sweater

Sweaters are to fall, what t-shirts are for summer. This means they are a critical piece as they are season specific and offer great versatility when it comes to layering.

So how do you find the perfect sweater?

You want options, so have a couple of different collar choices to give yourself the most bang for your buck.

Having a shawl neck sweater and a crew neck sweater ensures you have all your bases covered.

Make sure you choose neutral tones such as greys, creams, and tans for color. This ensures maximum versatility with other items within your wardrobe and gives you the most options.

That’s it, gents.

To learn more about how versatile this concept of capsule wardrobes can be, check out how I turned 16 pieces of clothing into 256 outfits.

The Best Zara Fragrances



We all know of Zara and I’m pretty sure the majority of us own at least one piece from them, but I’m not here to talk about their reasonably priced clothing, I’m here for their fragrance.

Not quite a hidden gem but I don’t feel that they vast range and high quality fragrance that they create is given enough air time, I’m about to change that. The fragrance game is massive at the moment, everyone from the big fashion houses all the way to footballers have a scent on the market and they all carry a hefty price tag, with some of the bigger hitters asking in excess of

£100 for 50ml.

Zara clearly understand the need for a great fragrance but also appreciate not everything has to be overly expensive. I’ve been lucky enough to sample my fair share over the years and wanted to share with you what I feel are some of their strongest.

Tobacco Collective 100ml – £16.99

This is one of my absolute favourites, it works perfectly as an everyday scent. The initial smell is strong and masculine but with undertones of vanilla bourbon help to soften it slightly.

For Him 100ml – £22.99

My current daily spray, its warm, modern and intense. It just so happens to be the perfect blend of three of my favourite scents, bergamot, cardamom and sandalwood. It’s strong yet light, never over powering and leaves a wonderful trail.

Florence 100ml – £16.24

Summer calls for a fresh fragrance and I cannot recommend this highly enough, its light, fresh and citrus scent is perfectly for those warmer days. Notes of black pepper, strawberry and guaiac wood allow this scent to sit gently on the skin with offending the noses of those around you.
