Harvey Nichols Edinburgh – Menswear for Father’s Day*


I always think buying presents for  men is super hard – and Father’s Day might just be trickiest. Thankfully though, Harvey Nichols has come to our rescue with their relaunched Menswear Department.


Designed after the flagship Knightsbridge store, The menswear department is definitely the chicest spot to shop for Dad anywhere outside the capital, and to celebrate, the store held a super-fun weekend filled with special services for the discerning shopper. As you arrived up the elevators, you were met with the cutest little bars serving up Arbikie – an incredible Scottish Gin and Vodka distillery.



As if that wasn’t enough, you could personalise the most luxurious of items – Grenson let you make up your ideal shoes, picking every detail from leathers to laces.


They could be as subtle or crazy as you could imagine, and the example shoes were absolutely breathtaking.


My favourite part of the whole event though, was the Etch’d stand, which, with an in-store purchase meant that you could get specially laser-personalised.


Even though I was expecting just initials, Etch’d can personalise basically anything with a flat surface, and I can’t tell you how awesome their pieces looked! Considering the chaps come from a graphic-design background, their designs were insane!



Based in Tollcross, you can even get phones and laptops laser etched, and I am seriously considering getting my laptop done. It’s just the coolest!


It’s not just electronics and perfume bottles which got the special treatment though, even shoes and sneakers were etched.


Since I couldn’t let the opportunity pass me by, I popped down to the beauty department to find something etch-able, so treated myself to Omorovicza’s Perfecting Lip Balm. It’s something I’ve been wanting since my facial (here) and the flat lid was perfect for the laser.


I couldn’t be happier with my rather special balm, and I would seriously recommend heading up to Harvey Nichols’ first floor. The menswear section couldn’t be better, and it’s absolutely packed with awesome Father’s Day gift ideas!

Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm is priced at £32.00 (I did receive a discount on mine) and is available in-store. You can find Omorovicza here.



Molton Brown Thickening Shampoo*

Molton Brown Thickening Shampoo

So Father’s Day hits us tomorrow, and if you’re still scrambling for a gift idea – head to Molton Brown stat! I’ve already given you a sneak peek at their amazing eye roller here, an awesome moisturiser here and a luxurious fragrance here and if you package all these treats into a hamper with a bottle of something lovely, you’ve got yourself quite the gift basket! My final idea is Molton Brown’s wondrous Thickening Shampoo.

I’m pretty sure men always want more hair, it’s the same way they collect watches and wine, so to keep everything looking lush, Molton Brown has just released their new Thickening Shampoo. First of all, this stuff smells divine – the shampoo is blended with ginger extract to volumize fine hair, and it has a gorgeous true ginger scent. It’s not sweet or cloying, just very clean with a hint of warmth, basically exactly how you want your hair to smell. The volumising properties are no joke either. After using the shampoo, my hair felt nourished and looked shiny, and despite just giving it a rough blow dry, it had volume which lasted all day.

Molton Brown’s Thickening Shampoo is priced at £18.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US).

Hermes Terre D’Hermes

Can you believe it’s going to be Father’s Day on Sunday? It always comes around super quickly, but I’ve still got a few ideas up my sleeve to score you some serious brownie points!

Terre D'Hermes

Hermes’ Terre D’Hermes is perfect if your dad is a bit of a luxury lover. I’m not sure there is any brand more opulent than Hermes, and Terre D’Hermes is a gorgeously masculine option.

Terre D'Hermes. 1

Described as a Woody Chypre fragrance for men, Terre D’Hermes is the perfect summer fragrance as it mixes both woody and citrus notes, meaning it smells like all kinds of deliciousness! Packaged in a chic, understated bottle, when first applied, Terre D’Hermes smells super clean thanks to top notes of grapefruit and orange. As the fragrance develops, the oak moss and wood become far more noticeable, really rounding out the scent, and making it feel incredibly luxurious to wear.

Hermes Terre D’Hermes is priced at £56.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US)

Molton Brown Ultra-Light Hydrator*

If my experience is anything to go by, men don’t tend to spend too long picking out their skincare choices, instead they just tend to graze at what’s already in the bathroom. So, if your dad has similar habits, Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to protect your stash whilst also earning some major brownie points! A sure-fire win is Molton Brown’s new Ultra-Light Hydrator, an amazing moisturiser if your father suffers from slightly oily skin.

Packaged in a gorgeous brushed glass bottle, this looks like something you would find in an upmarket hotel. You only need a pump or two of the Hydrator, so it will last for months, and it has the loveliest slightly citrus scent. The formula is also very lightweight, which means skin doesn’t look slick or greasy after application yet keeps hydrating throughout the day!

Molton Brown Ultra-Light Hydrator is priced at £26.00 and is available here (UK) and here (US).

Molton Brown Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette*

Molton Brown Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette 2

If you’re still in a quandary about what to get your dad for Father’s Day next week, no fear, Molton Brown is releasing a gorgeous new scent which is perfect if he loves a bit of luxury!

Molton Brown Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette

Molton Brown’s newest scent is Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette which is described as the brand’s ‘most decadent yet,’ so it’s perfect for gifting as a special treat!

Molton Brown Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette 1

For me, oudh is always associated with the time I’ve spent in the middle east. It’s a very distinctive scent which is used in both men’s and women’s fragrances, and Molton Brown have completely embraced the sense of opulence by combining Oudh Accord with Gold! The Eau de Toilette comes in a stunning golden bottle, and it feels like a little jewel all tucked up in it’s box! When applied, the top notes of spicy nutmeg oil makes the fragrance feel very rich and glamorous, and elemi oil and oudh accord round out the scent. Thanks to the scent being an eau de toilette, it’s a slightly lighter way to enjoy the oudh fragrance which can be quite strong, so it’s a perfect everyday option!

Molton Brown’s Oudh Accord & Gold Eau de Toilette launches next week
