5 Essential Grooming Products For Men

Some things never go out of style. Perfect bespoke tailoring and excellent grooming - these two stalwarts of timeless fashion go hand in hand for today's modern man, who takes exceptional pride in his appearance. At Mullen & Mullen, we do both - we produce perfectly fitting garments and stock a complete range of Trumpers and grooming essentials.

So let's start at the beginning, preparing the canvas on which to construct the impeccable gentleman.

Your skin needs as much careful cleansing and conditioning as your hair. But don't suffocate it in harsh chemicals and overpowering scents. The flawless gent uses only the best oils and products in caring for his skin. Because keeping your look sharp and fresh requires regular shaving, your skin can suffer. Coconut oil based products are wonderful for nourishing dry skin, and our range of skin foods protect and support even the most sensitive skin.

Take care to match and layer your scents, too many different fragrances can overwhelm you and passers-by! Cologne is a must, but keep the bouquet of aromas fresh and invigorating, with a touch of luxury. Look for pure oil ingredients like rosemary, sandalwood and cedar. Today, there are many premium men's grooming lines available, which work in tandem and complement each other.

Be thorough in testing your cologne; each individual gentleman has a unique skin composition, so what smells alluring on one might not suit another. Test your sample for 24 hours, as the aroma will change on your skin. Base notes of the cologne only reveal themselves after a few hours of wear.

We recommend:

Geo F Trumper GFT Cologne - The signature GFT scent is a fresh and invigorating cologne with top notes of bergamot, lemon and mandarin, a heart of tarragon, lavender and cypress on a musk-like base with cedar and moss.

Sandalwood Shaving Soap - Lightly fragranced and suitable for sensitive skin.

Coconut Oil Shampoo - Extracted from fresh coconut pulp, this nourishing oil contains the finest moisturising properties and tends to a gentlemans hair with the utmost enriching care. 

Alum Block - Available at all good chemists. This shaving essential stops bleeding from small nicks and cuts and soothe skins irritation

Blue Pomade Hair Wax JarA heavy dressing to hold the hair and provide sheen. Particularly good for those whose styles require extra hold.

So now your skin is ready, what about the suit? Choose a bespoke suit, tailored to perfectly fit you, then look after it and it will look after you. Always hang your suit after wear, and keep regular maintenance with a quality clothing brush. Whether your day requires a suit for the office or a bespoke wedding suit, with these grooming routines and the tailoring skill at Mullen and Mullen, you can be confident that you will always be the most stylish and impeccable gentleman.
