    The perfume selection is one of my favorites in the city. And Stacey is an expert (and fun!) in helping you choose a scent when u can't quite describe what u like in words. Ask for him!

    Despite what you've been led to believe, Gillette is not the best a man could get. They have pretty much every Proraso product *cheaper* than Amazon. Definitely coming back.

    Ever wondered what an apothecary looks like? Here's a great example. Love the mix of product. Never seem to be able to leave without at least one NEST Candle and a new bottle of Mentha Shower Gel.

    Sure, there's NARS and Dr. Hauschka but we really love C.O. Bigelow's own line of natural skincare. Two perpetual faves: Mentha Lip Balm and Rose Salve. Affordable enough to invest in several.
