The summer of style continues with some sun hopefully around the corner…. in anticipation we got hold of some treats from Nougat London – its new range for Men called NGT.
There are plenty of fragrances around, including many which have been endorsed by celebrities but how many of you gents purchased Beckham’s aftershave from superdrug? Have you seen the Hugh Laurie adverts (why!). When it comes to getting a scent strong enough to take you in to the boardroom and out on the town you are still spoilt for choice but how many times did you recognise when a colleague was wearing Boss, Aramis or Armani? They are popular scents and if you want to stand out you need to explore what else is out there – thats when Elysium can help!
The NGT range includes fragrances, shaving essentials, and gift packs. The signature fragrance was particularly intriguing – providing a invigorating and seductive Grapefruit & Cedarwood scent which is unique in setting. The heart of the fragrance carries the senses away on a sea of clean Oceanic notes before settling on the delicately blended notes of Cedarwood and Amber creating a deeply sensuous and long lasting fragrance. This is a unique fragrance which can easily start up a conversation, its strong yet subtle. It certain gets you attention if you are seeking it – having sprayed a dash on my jacket having left the gym I was asked twice where I had purchased my after shave. I have never got that reaction with my usual array of fragrances – a good start.
The Shaving Essentials kit includes a Hydrating Face Wash, Shaving Cream and Soothing After Shave Balm to provide the complete shaving solution. The quality of the products were good – having used the face wash for a few weeks it was working wonders for my skin, which was surprising given the price range.
The Shaving Cream was also good and only a small dose is required as it lathers up quickly. Again the fresh citrus scent provides a morning revival which comes in handy.
The Invigorating Shower Gel is another revival tool in the mornings! it contains a blend of carefully selected ingredients such as Wheatgerm Oil and Mallow Extract to cleanse, moisturise and protect. The results are seen, and felt, after a couple of washes and does want you wondering why there aren’t more types of scents in the range.
