For the Men Fridays: Seduction and Mystery with YSL's New La Nuit de l'Homme

“La Nuit de l’Homme”, portrayed by French Actor Vincent Cassel (Monica Bellucci’s husband), brings classic masculinity, but more edgy, daring and sensual than the original “L’Homme”. This oriental fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent features notes of bergamot, cardamom, lavender, vetiver, cedar and coumarin, creating a seductive scent for eveningtime.

Be sure to visit the YSL Beauty home page for a quick (yet quite sexy) movie about the new fragrance.

Available in two sizes: 2.0 ounces and 3.3 ounces.

Product Review: Jonathan Product Spray Dirt

I have just about everything in the Jonathan Product Dirt line, and have been a huge fan since the original Dirt paste came out in the jar. It works really well on my thick, coarse hair, especially in terms of adding texture, which is always what I'm looking for in a finishing product.

So, when I saw this hanging out at my local Bath and Body Works, I decided to grab it, although the price tag gave me a bit of spitty mouth. At $29 for a little over four ounces, it better be fantastic. But I say that every time I buy a Dirt product.

It doesn't disappoint. It gives great texture, and it's extremely easy to use. Here are a few tips from the styling sheet:

  • Shake it well. It's thick, so it doesn't come out like a liquid. It's more pasty.
  • Work through Hair. Just like the paste, you'll need to work with it a bit - you can't just spray and expect it to make your hair look exactly the way you want.
  • Use only a few sprays. You don't need to use a lot, like you would a hairspray. And at $29, you don't want to waste it.
And here are the celebrity styling secrets from Jonathan:

  • For Light Control: Spray Dirt can finish your piecey style with light control. To finish your style, spray 2-3 times at arm's length and work through dry hair. To tame flyaways, one simple spray will do the trick.
  • For Added Texture and Definition: Cup hand and spray 2-3 times into palm creating a lightweight foam. Emulsify and work through damp or dry hair, separating and lifting layers for that second day look.
  • For Volume on Longer Hair: For an extra boost of volume, flip hair over and spray onto dry hair. Tousle, then flip hair back for soft body and bounce.
