What: LS&B Grooming for men
Why: Though I’ve never smelled a 007, from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig, you know they ooze sexy Scent of Man. Brits are good like that. Lock Stock & Barrel is a London company of high-end hair products for men. When I first opened a bottle of Soak, the shampoo for men with normal to thick, coarse hair, (they’ve got thinning heads covered too) the manly cologne scent just about burned my delicate lady nose. But I let it into my shower anyway, burn or not, it smelled like A Man. I was hoping it would rub off on the schlubs in my flat.
Once lathered, the fragrance loses enough of its power to avoid nostril burn but retains enough for maximum sex appeal. Guys need not splash on cologne when they style their locks with LS&B products. Point blank, it may be missing the “Two Smoking Barrels” from the brand name, but take stock, locks washed with this are a turn-on. According to Adam, who has been using the stuff, it does good things for hair too.
