New Deodorant from the Bulldog

As someone who thinks Axe deodorant is the tackiest thing to happen to men’s grooming since Drakkar Noir, I prefer products that are either very slightly fragranced or unscented altogether so they don’t interfere with my chosen scent (Royall’s Muske, in case you were wondering). My favorite effective and affordable men’s skincare brand has just added a new entry into the men’s groomingsphere: deodorant.

Exclusive to the U.S. market, Bulldog Skincare for Men has just added Original Deodorant and Cedarwood & Patchouli Deodorant sticks to their offerings. Both deodorant sticks use world class natural ingredients including the brand’s signature blend of 8 essential oils as well as soothing aloe vera and grapefruit seed extract, which is high in antioxidants with antiseptic and antimicrobial properties.

Both are very gently fragranced. The Original uses the brand’s light, fresh signature scent while the Cedarwood & Patchouli add a clean, masculine element that is – lucky for me – not entirely dissimilar to my own fragrance. They’re both really nice.

They go for about $7 each at Whole Foods or online at

“When We Were Young” by Adele

Here’s a little more gorgeous to hold us over until Adele releases her new album 25 on Friday. The video is a live recording of a new song called “When We Were Young.” 

In a recent interview on Sirius XM, she described the song and its inspiration like this:

“Seeing everyone that you’ve ever fallen out with, everyone that you’ve ever loved, everyone that you’ve never loved, and stuff like that. And where you can’t find the time to be in each other lives and you’re all thrown together at this party when you’re like 50, and it doesn’t matter and you have so much fun and you feel like you’re 15 again.”
