Fragrance Review - Ferrari Essence Oud

Oud fragrances are getting more and more popular, with loads of fragrance houses releasing their own take on the woody scent.

Being still quite a beginner in terms of fragrance, my collection is ​lacking in certain areas. One of those was Oud. As a strong woody, masculine note, I was keen to get something in time for the cooler weather, when I stumbled across a few reviews of Ferrari’s Essence Oud.

Classic Movie Review - Bullitt

I have a bit of an obsession with Steve McQueen. As far as style icons go, I don’t think there are many men that can measure up to how effortlessly cool he was. So with that said, it’s surprising I haven’t seen more stuff with him in. As far as I can remember, the only movie so far is Le Mans, which is pretty epic, and definitely one to watch.

I’ve known about Bullitt for years, ever since Ford made an advert for the Puma using not only the music, but footage of McQueen driving to advertise their new sports car. Now the Puma was a great car, but let’s be real, it’s no Mustang, like the one seen in Bullitt!

Classic Movie Review - American Graffiti

The first classic movie in my loooooong list to see is American Graffiti. As a huge Star Wars fan, I was always aware of this film being how George Lucas first made his name.

I chose to watch this first, simply because I was shooting a fashion editorial today in a retro American Diner, so it kind of fit with my general theme for the day. Going into it, I didn’t really know what it was about or what to expect. I knew the general setting of cars, diners and Americana, but that was about it.

New Years Resolution #2 - Become more James Bond

There’s no doubt that James Bond is the quintessential gold standard for men. Men want to be him and women want to be with him. Like most fictional characters, being James Bond is obviously an unattainable goal, but I’ve decided that there’s definitely a few of his traits that I would certainly like to adopt into my own personal character this year.

Whether it’s the current gritty era with Daniel Craig, or any of the previous iterations of the character, James Bond has always maintained a consistent identity. You know who he is, and what he’s about, as well as what he’s capable of.

Blogiversary!

Despite only returning to the whole blogging thing a few weeks ago, turns out today is a bit of a birthday. My first ever blog post was December 15th 2007... literally 10 years ago!!!!

Now obviously I’m not claiming to have blogged consistently for the entirety of the past 10 years. I haven’t blogged at all (besides the odd Guest blog on other people’s) for he past 4 years, but it’s still kinda crazy to think about the idea of blogging being that old, when we still talk about it being a ‘new thing’.

Hasselblad Ferrari Edition

I love photography and cameras, and I love cars, so combining the two is definitely a winner for me, and after a long wait, Hasselblad have launched their H4D-40 ‘Ferrari Edition’.

Underneath, it’s basically like any other Hasselblad camera, but on the outside, it’s finished in genuine Ferrari Rosso Red, with prancing horse emblems. Supplied in a carbon fibre presentation box, this really is a collectors piece, combining two of the worlds most prestige brands.
