For the first time ever, Selfridges has launched a very special grooming box, this time dedicated to the men in your life.

With the price of the grooming box costing just £20 – this is all your Father’s Day headaches solved in one fantastic package.

The Box contains products from all different areas of male grooming. There are skincare products from Scaramouche and Fandango and Kiehls, texture past for the hair from Go 24.7, bath and body wash from Molton Brown, shaving foam gel from Clarins, fragrance from Comme Des Garcons and soap from Triumph and Disaster. The sizes make this a perfect travel kit, and a good way of trying new products.

Molton Brown celebrates 40 years with a collaboration with Giles Deacon

On St George’s Day, it seems only good and proper to celebrate the 40th birthday of an iconic British Brand. Luxury bath and beauty brand Molton Brown is, unbelievably celebrating its Ruby Anniversary this year, and in honour of this, they have collaborated with designer Giles Deacon to create a limited edition snuff lid for its amazing range of candles.

It has been beautifully engraved by fashion designer Deacon, with one of his iconic signature patterns. Completed with Giles’s signature, this is a stunning object that is a fabulous tribute to both Giles and Molton Brown.
