Hello and good afternoon my Bearded hero’s, it’s me your Bearded Captain, leader of all Beards, flag bearer of all Beards on digital and digital broadcasting media. I am that Beard who tries (and succeeds hehe) to make people laugh and I am that Beard who tries to make people smile.
My Bearded Stallions, with your face medallions your the bees knees. I think the phrase should be modified to, you’re the Beards Knees, so Brothers you are that now. I pray you’re well, looking after yourselves and your Beards!
My Soldiers, you’re the Beard winners of your face and your life. I want to talk about something important in the life if Beards, it’s the issue of what us Beards see as the proverbial ‘sweetie shop’. The commas, highlight this is more in the metaphorical sense.
Brothers, retail therapy is a phrase often associated with women. This phrase as you know refers to shopping as a coping mechanism for women. Usually that tends to be clothes shopping, spas, salon treatments or health care/beauty products.
I am not a woman, but I can imagine this is the things they do for when in need of therapy. My Beloved’s we too need therapy. For me, it’s vlogging and blogging to you lovely souls and the occasional bit of my own retail therapy.
This is in essence what I want to type about here. Brothers, we men need retail therapy too and I am sure it’s the perfume shop! With fragrances that are more ‘masculine’ because they’re a strong scent or the lighter smells, the ones that you can actually breathe afterwards when you spray, perfumes shopping is a hidden gem.
From £10 -£110 and even more than that, fellas buying perfumes is an experience. Depending if you’re like me, then the perfume selection perfume is meticulous! Not too strong that you choke on your smell and not too light, that you can’t smell you’re wearing perfume.
Aftershave/perfume should be sprayed in such a way, that you can smell it and a person that comes near you (hugs you). What you shouldn’t do is have fragrance that can be smelt hundreds of yards away, even outdoors!
Don’t need to swim in your Sauvage or Creed. When I am going through the test process, it’s stringent (ask the ladies in Superdrug in Hyde market all those years ago). Both of my arms are filled with different scents and my hands are too – as well as my clothes.
Sorry shop assistants who are left in a scented daze, as perfume smells are left in my wake as I go from one bottle to the next, but it becomes worth it in the end. One of the most important aspects of Beard life, is having a nice smelling and maintained one.
If there is a shop that does fragrances and Beard products (there is many), then that’s the ‘sweetie shop’ for men. You’re spoilt for choice and get to give yourself too bits of therapy as nothing beats a good smell man/beard as well as a man who is well groomed with a well groomed beard.
Brothers, you would have noticed how I didn’t say for me to go to the Beard care shop. The reason is simple, since my five years of being Bearded leader, I have not had to buy any Bearded products for myself. #truestory.
It’s over and out from The Bearded Captain.
