Fancy a Bleu de Chanel shave? Then pop into John Lewis for their pop-up

BLEU_DE_CHANEL_2015

Bleu de Chanel Hydrating After Shave GelI wrote about the two brand new Bleu de Chanel shaving products the other week and tomorrow  (25th February) and again on 3rd March, from 4 – 9pm, Chanel will be hosting a special pop-up shaving evening with expert barber Dan Gregory at John Lewis in Oxford Street. If you’re in town on either of those days and fancy a professional shave and a chance to sample the new products yourselves then you can book a 30 minute slot by calling 0203 073 0648. Appointments cost £30 but that’s redeemable against any purchase from the range on the day, so if you like Bleu de Chanel and fancy a bespoke shave get booking!

Penhaligon’s open Canary Wharf store – with a barbers!

Penhaligons canaryPENHALIGONS STOREDespite being founded in 1870 British perfumer Penhaligon’s are a brand that’s always on the move  – literally, as the opening of their New York store proves and creatively, as evidenced by their recent partnership with BA –  but their latest project sees them returning to their roots to certain extent. Not only does their dazzling new store in London’s Canary Wharf look the biz (thanks to architects Al-Jawad Pike) it also features Penhaligon’s first in-house barbers since their very first Jermyn Street store opened all those years ago. Result? A quick lunchtime visit and you’ll look just as good as you smell. Recommended.
