The best new grooming products we discovered this month

From opulent elixirs and body washes to spritzes and razors, here are the latest products to have hit the market

It’s the little wins that can often illuminate your daily routine, like the lights on a pachinko machine – a spray of something good onto your pulse points, a gritty exfoliant that scrubs away the ardour of the working week just gone, a dependable pomade or putty that minimises your chances of having a bad hair day.

So to keep you in the loop on what new grooming goods you should to be seeking as and when the seasons pass by, every month we’ll update you on the finest products that have hit the market, from opulent elixirs to body washes, spritzes, razors and everything in between.

For this month’s greatest grooming gems, take a look below…

Floris Platinum 22

Perfumer to the Queen, it is apt that Floris has devised this bottle in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee, a grand and opulent blend of orris, oat, blackcurrant, lime, and violet leaf, which pave the way for amber, musk and tonka bean. It is appropriately embellished with a purple graphic, which has been the hue of royalty stretching back to antiquity.

Gentleman’s Journal x Dr Sebagh The Essentials Kit

For over 30 years, Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh has built a name for creating smoother skin via the method of ‘cosmetic medical procedures’ – in other words, technologies that draw upon gentler alternatives, such as vitamin injections, to going under the knife. We’ve teamed up with the ‘Ageing-Maintenance’ master to create a grooming kit that features the label’s Serum Repair, High Maintenance Cream, a purifying Foaming Cleanser and a roll-on Supreme Eye Serum, a set that will not only tighten and refresh your complexion, but is also compact enough to slip in your on-the-go bag, or your first-class carry-on.

Heath The Face Set

Combining two of Heath’s hardest-working products – The Facewash, made with black lava, activated charcoal and Brazilian-papaya extract; and The Moisturiser, a fast-acting, smoothing blend that features hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule that hydrates the skin – this kit comes at an ideal time given the big migration back to work spaces and the subsequent need to consistently wash and replenish following an arduous day at the office.

La Prairie White Caviar Essence Extraordinaire

This opulent concoction by La Prairie draws upon Lumidose – a patented molecule that Vanity Fair has labelled “the single most powerful illuminating molecule on the market right now” – in order to minimise and reduce pigmentation and dark spots. Other elements, namely Swiss Golden Caviar Water, are said to firm up skin, too.

Gabar No. II Ground

Produced in small batches, the No.II Ground comes courtesy of Gabar, a new fragrance house that pays homage to its founders’ Southeast Asian background. Built around the creamy aromas of thanakha, a cosmetic paste popular in Myanmar and formed from ground bark, it is a gentle scent that comprises sandalwood and fig, with accents of headier notes such as oudh. Neither too heavy or fruity, it is an ideal spritz for the transitional season.

Patrick's ND1

Angled as a more sustainable and natural alternative to mainstream counterparts, ND1, by Australian label Patricks, eschews parabens and sulfates and instead favours a less common ingredient called Niodor, which, it is alleged, absorbs (rather than masks) the bacteria that causes odours. It is also perfumed with Amazonian brown clay and coconut oil, and the industrial-looking packaging is entirely recyclable.

Aesop & Rick Owens Travel Kit

Fans of one another’s ethos and style, luxury grooming brand Aesop and designer of grunge fashion Rick Owens have teamed up for this toiletries pack. It comprises a few of Owens’s favourites from Aesop, including a Coriander Seed Body Cleanser and a Classic Shampoo, as well as a specially created eau de toilette – made with black pepper, coriander seed, and frankincense – that can be spritzed on the accompanying ceramic-bead wristband.
