I was caught off-guard a little last week when a package arrived for me on Friday from the lovely folks at Mankind. Upon opening it, I found that they had gifted me one of their new “GQ Edition” Mankind Grooming boxes from a recent collaboration of theirs. Having had it for less than a week I haven’t really had time to review the whole box, though it does contain some firm favourites of mine including the Clinique for Men Face Scrub, The Refinery Eye Gel and Omorovicza Moor Mud Cream Cleanser, all of which I’ve reviewed and loved on here at one point or another.

In the past I’ve tried to avoid fragrances created by car companies as, from previous experience, I find they are an example of a company applying its strengths in one area (i.e. cars) and attempting to apply them to fragrance with limited success. However, when I received invitation and early press samples of Bentley Momentum Intense, the latest cologne from the car manufacturer’s fragrance division, I was undeniably curious. So after a rather cold and wet trip through Central London, I headed to The Shard for the launch event in the Shangri-La hotel to see if Bentley could buck the trend of car company fragrances.
Also, there’s an opportunity for you to win a bottle of this fragrance before it hits the stores by following me on Twitter and retweeting the pinned post for this article. Winner’s will be announced in 2 weeks time on Wednesday 22nd March on Twitter.
I realise I didn’t manage to get a post up last week, largely due to a few personal obligations that got in the way, and I felt bad for leaving you all a little high and dry. However, as an apology I’m doing a giveaway of some of my favourite products from brands I’ve recently reviewed. This selection of items should keep you looking sharp throughout the Summer/Autumn transition and well into Winter and have a total value of over £50!
You can find details on the individual products below and to win all you need to do is go follow me and like this post on Instagram or follow and RT the pinned post on Twitter. Best of luck to you all, the winner will be announced next Wednesday at 9am! View Post
This week I’m giving away a small but beautiful kit from the gentlemen of Taylor of Old Bond Street, in collaboration with the fine men from Regal Gentleman. This collection is a truly classic shaving experience with natural ingredients and a 160 year old heritage influencing its design and creation. It is the epitome of a gentleman’s shaving routine and the one of the best names in the industry to use.
The bundle is made up of:

Also, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter or Instagram for style inspiration, gentleman’s musings and general fun.
Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere and nor is the site being sold, stopped or changed in the way it’s run. However, I am going to be changing the way the site looks over the next week with the aim of creating a unique design that reflects the feel of the website and better serves you all in getting around it.
The site is likely to be down for some periods and may not look right but this is just due to the changes being implemented. When it’s all done there will be a new post celebrating the fantastic new design and look.
Thank you for your patience and see you on the other side!
Goodbye to The Male Stylist’s old look!
Thanks for all your support and feedback that has made the site such a big success in its first year, I look forward to revealing the new look to you all! In the meantime, you can keep up to date with The Male Stylist on Twitter or Instagram for style inspiration, gentleman’s musings and general fun.
