Tried & Tested Dunhill Driven Fragrance

men's fragrance new Driven dunhill review tested tried the chic geekDunhill Driven is said to be inspired by the man who is fearless, has confidence and persistence. A fragrance for the man who is a warrior at heart, it opens with a blend of bergamot, lime, red apple and plum. The heart of the fragrance delivers freshness with a blend of cardamom, cinnamon, and jasmine, all harmoniously combined with velvety rose. The base maintains a warm depth, with notes of amber, amyris wood, vanilla, cedarwood and musk.

TheChicGeek says, “Dunhill has had more brand directions than a compass and aesthetic reinventions than the cast of Friends. Creative Directors have come and gone - it's currently Mark Weston, formerly of Burberry - and the brand has pin-balled from one new look to another over the decades. The current vibe is fashion cool, but as a style observer, they need commit before I do.

As for the fragrance, it is well thought out. Great name, referencing the Dunhill motorcar heritage, while feeling modern with the packaging and branding. The monochrome design on the box is pulled from a current runway shirt. The bottle is great with its large black gear top.

Dunhill has done some great men’s fragrances over the last few years. This feels safe and commercial. The three main scent pillars are a top of red apple, middle of cardamom and base of cedarwood. It would have be nice have something more forward thinking with a name like Driven, but it’s an easy wear and if you’re a fan of Boss Bottled you’ll love this.”

Splash Or Cash? The Light Flower Print Shirt

Men's Floral Shirt best SandroFlorals for spring, and all that jazz, groundbreaking, etc. but it really gets old. This season, it is less colourful and, dare I say, minimal.

The flowers are graphically bold and play into a more clean sensibility.

Splashy Sandro has gone more stylised with this strongly contrasting daisy type flower, while Cash Zara has gone more natural with a painterly Magnolia type flower. They’ve obviously been looking at lockdown Instagram…

Quiksilver The Original Boardshort swimwear surfQuiksilver is celebrating its most iconic range of boardshorts by bringing back the most loved and iconic design from the early days of the brand, The Original. This bold boardshort set, originally famed for its iconic checkered side panel, will be available from this month and will never go out of stock.

Born in 1969, The Original was the first boardshort to blend style with performance to create something that represented the raw, progressive energy of surfing.

Last year, Quiksilver announced that 100% of the brand’s boardshort range is now made from recycled water bottles. Quiksilver has focused on using recycled water bottles since the breakthrough of this fabric technology and to date has reused over 250 million bottles that would otherwise have gone into landfill. As well as recycled fabrics, the shorts are built with technology to service the needs of surfers, and the everyday wearer at the beach or pool.

New for this year, Quiksilver’s boardshorts will also feature the new 'Surf Silk' and 'Highlite' fabric for comfort, durability and performance which use 100% recycled nylon from fishing buoys.

The Original boardshorts are available as a boardshort and a volley short, and priced from £45-£60

#Iconicforareason 

TheChicGeek says, "While the fashion in men's swimwear has been getting smaller and smaller, the boardshort could be ripe for a comeback. Just be careful if you're short..."

TheChicGeek says, “I’ve been a fan of Good News since I first saw them at London Fashion Week in 2017 - Read more here - Linking up with the giant H&M should be not just great for their exposure but also their bank balance. H&M has never been that great in the shoe department, so this is a massive improvement, looking at the pics, and the prices are good too. I’m always open to a fresh twist on the classic plimsoll.”
