The 007 Grooming Guide
We’re now just days away from the highly anticipated release of the new James Bond film, Spectre. And who wouldn’t want to be as slick and as immaculate as 007? Our male grooming expert Jake Daniels picks out his top products to take yourself from dishevelled to dynamite.
007 loves the clean shaven look and the ladies certainly love it to. But James stays away from those nasty multi-bladed razors and instead opts for a manly cut-throat.
The Shaving Shack, one of the UK’s leading online retailers of traditional shaving products, attributed the shaving scene in the Skyfall movie for a staggering 405% increase in sales of cut-throat razors.
I recommend The Bluebeards Revenge Cut-Throat Shavette razor (takes disposable blades) for those looking to get into the wonderful world of straight razor shaving. It’s an art form and takes time to master but the results can be stunning.
The Shaving Brush
A shaving brush lifts the hairs from the skin which in turn ensures a better cutting angle for the razor. I suggest one made from badger hair and the Simpsons brand have a stunning collection, with my personal favourite the Emperor Super Badger Brush (E3).
Legendary 007 Pierce Brosnan has a head of luscious hair slicked back to perfection. Invest in some barbershop quality pomade from The Bluebeards Revenge to keep your hair firmly in place. This pomade offers industrial strength hold and a high-shine finish for sharp and structured styles that last all day and all night.
007 Fragrances recently announced the launch of the James Bond scent – SEVEN. With citrus top notes, the heart of the fragrance rapidly unfolds with a host of spice – Cinnamon, Saffron and White Pepper. Amber, Vanilla and Musk combine with Caramel at the base, while these ingredients are enriched by Leather, dark Mahogany, Cedarwood and Sandalwood.
The new male fragrance comes in a sleek black bottle with a sharp-edged profile to create the shape of the number seven.
