Tried and tested
Alien Man, Mugler, EDT, €58, Debenhams THE latest invasion by Alien is bringing with it a scent designed for men by Mugler. Part of the Clarins Group, Mugler, prices for the masculine scent range from €58 for 50ml to €77 for an eco-refil 100ml. The woody scents from Alien Man are a welcome alternative from many sickly sweet colognes available on the market today. The notes for the woody aromatic scent include dill, osmanthus, smoked beech wood, leather, cashmeran and white amber. Wearable for all occasions, Alien Man is subtle enough for time spent in the office, yet fragrant and long lasting for socialising after work. And the scent isn’t the only highlight of this latest venture from Mugler. The futuristic and geometric dark purple bottle with silver details will certainly stand out among other bottles on your shelf. — Greg Murphy
Give your skin an instant lift with a simple daily routine. Buy some organic muslim cloths — you’ll find them in the baby section — and cut into handkerchief-sized squares. Once you’ve removed all traces of makeup, gently cleanse your face with a muslin cloth dipped in warm water. It works as a toner and gives your skin a gentle exfoliation. Just what’s needed during the lingering winter months.
