A good room scent can make one feel rested and relaxed. Light a DIPTYQUE scented candle in Patchouli, $102, from Escentials, to fill the house with the woody fragrance of the "Indonesian hills".
Always moisturise. Light and residue-free, MALIN+GOETZ Vitamin E Face Moisturizer, $84 for 118ml, from Beauty Emporium, gently hydrates the skin and restores its pH balance.
Chapped lips are a big grooming no-no. Which is why we go for KYOKU FOR MEN Lip Fuel (SPF 15), price unavailable. It nourishes the lips, while protecting them from harmful UV damage. Kyoku for Men is exclusively available at What He Wants.
With two grades of milled pumice and micronised bamboo stem, AESOP Geranium Leaf Body Scrub, $51 for 170ml, exfoliates thoroughly. Its mixture of geranium leaf, mandarin and bergamot oils leaves a refreshing post-shower sillage.
All a man needs to attract anyone is a good cologne. And the bitter-sweet, citrusy notes of ACQUA DI PARMA Colonia Assoluta, $153 for 50ml, from Escentials, make it the perfect all-day perk-me-up.
