Here at b-glowing we realize that a lot of time in the beauty world men tend to get left out. Now more than ever the blue collar or metrosexual male is taking more interest in looking after their skin and using products geared towards issues that men tend to suffer from. One of the beauty rituals men tend to do most every day is shave and a lot of the products on the market can cause in-grown hairs, razor burn and nicks and cuts along the neck line. As always, a big difference can be noticed when using the right products so we are proud to announce our first product range for men, The Art of Shaving. This luxury shaving range is very debonaire, from the packaging, to the product scents, to the classy and old school Pure Badger Brush barbers use to brush shaving cream on their customers. With different types of products to choose from, The Art of Shaving centers around 4 essential shaving steps to deliver a clean-close shave: Prepare...Lather Up....Shave....and Moisturize!Read More »

A female could even wear this undeniably seductive scent that in Spanish translates to, "black shadow."Read More »

Can you imagine if a group of the most talented 'noses' in the fragrance industry got together and created scents without the shackles of brand approval or conforming to the demands of the marketplace? Just pure genius aromatic minds breaking the boundaries of traditional restrictions of the perfume industry and creating amazing scents based on their own personal fantasies. From this mentality our latest fragrance brand Etat Libre d'Orange was born.
At Etat Libre d'Orange, which translates to 'orange free state,' talented perfumers are liberated to have complete freedom to develop original, erotic and provocative scents fueled by the sensual way our bodies express themselves. In other words, this is one sexy perfume line. Now that our heart rate is speeding up, let's take a look at some of their most popular aromas:
Etat Libre d'Orange Secretions Magnifique is a male cologne that captures the essence of sex in a fragrance. Your intimate desires, wants and needs are bottled up and wanting to be let out. Sometimes we don't want to admit to our desires, we hide our cravings and only when we're ready and feel safe do we release them. The same goes with this fragrance with notes of coconut, orris and sandalwood. If you're tempted enough to give in to this fragrance you need to totally surrender to it's powers.
Etat Libre d'Orange Like This is a fragrance about home, trust and the simplicity of inhaling the aromas of the one you love. If you're far from home and lost, this scent will bring you back with its notes of tangerine, moroccan neroli and vetiver.
Etat Libre d'Orange Rien should be thought of like a second skin for men. It clings to the body and has a masculine/feminine elegance that leaves an unforgettable imprint. Black currant bays and musky notes of blonde suede makes the wearer totally irresistible. You want this addiction.
Think of Etat Libre d'Orange Tom of Finland like fresh and pure water. It feels clean and is an ode to the beauty of the male body and the radiance of the natural self. This scent is for a man who loves to play and to love with notes of lemon, tonka bean and vanilla.
Etat Libre d'Orange Bendelirious is for the girl who catches your eye at a party. She's the girl everyone wants to be and can't stop staring at but you leave without speaking to her. She evokes elegance and grace and also has a bewitching way of capturing the hearts of everyone she comes in contact with. Like the girl, Bendelirious is totally enchanting with notes of grapefruit essence, cherry lollipop accord and vetiver.
