Hi there Posse, Every year we are bombarded with more and more and more choice. It’s getting harder and harder to choose a sensible Man Gift. What I really love though is finding something really special but reasonably priced to add to Jin’s Santa Bag. Of course all these gifts are cross sexual and just because I think they’re nice for Jin doesn’t mean you and your female friends and relatives won’t love them too.

Oriza L Legrand: Rêve de Noël Luxury Christmas Box 3 soaps: I love having beautifully scented soaps in the bathroom, there’s something so elegant and refined about it that makes me feel like I’m a glamorous movie star or a trophy bride in a fabulous mansion whose sole job is to be gorgeous. Even Jin, the rough around the edges electrician, loves to have some luxury soap on hand and these three are a great set, come beautifully boxed and will last him months. Classy Man Gift, and you can steal one. The scents are Pin de Jérusalem, Relique d’Amour and La Trêve des Confiseurs and the set is €30 from Oriza L Legrand
Pamplemousse Rhubarb by L`Occitane en Provence & Pierre Herme 2015: I came a bit late to the Pamplemousse Rhubarb and I was a little less than enthused to try it. Isn’t Pierre Herme the luxury Maccaron Man? I thought it was going to be ULTRA sweet gourmand. Not even a bit. Sweet (in a good way) and sparkling grapefruit shorn of its more challenging facets and loads of creamy pith, some green that is not brittle or aloof but friendly and endearing and the whole shebang finishes up with a really enjoyable white musk and polished wood, 10 hours later I still smell very nice. This is a PERFECT work, gym, movies and life scent for a very reasonable price and comes with all the bathing accessories. This is the kind of Man Gift that wins hearts. PLUS $10 from the sale of every gift box will be donated to the not-for-profit organization Dress for Success

L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Intense Issey Miyake 2007: I know, you are all groaning but I have had this bottle for years and only spritzed it maybe 5 times. While going through for a cleanout when Jin & I moved into the new apartment I was selling off some stuff but I tried everything before it went. BAM! It hit me. I love this scent. L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Intense has been a constant respritz ever since. That weird, wet pepper and citrus opening, the green and spicy heart and the ever so slightly warmer dry down are freaking killer. Exactly as the picture above describes, a solid wall of water. How many Man Gifts can make him wet? Fragrance Shop has $33/125ml before coupon

Dark Horse by Dame Perfumery Scottsdale 2015: The bright start, warm spicy floral heart and oud/woods and musk dry down of Dark Horse has had the scentbloggosphere going crazy this year. Jeffrey Dame has had an enormous hot with it and if your guy is pretty cool, laid back and/or hipster then this could be the perfect Man Gift to get him in the saddle. Dame Perfumery Scottsdale has $65/50ml
I hope this has helped you. What is your guy getting for his Man Gift this season?
