The Only Luxury Advent Calendar You’ll Need This Christmas.
Christmas is my favourite time of year. Nothing beats putting the tree up, a mince pie and opening the doors on a fantastic luxury advent calendar.
Last month we were lucky enough to geek out about grooming with MR PORTER. This festive season we are fortunate to enjoy the MR PORTER 12 days of grooming luxury advent calendar.
What is the best advent calendar 2020?
For me, male grooming is the perfect theme for a luxury advent calendar. Heading into the new year feeling fresh and revitalised provides a platform to flourish over the months ahead.
There are a number of fantastic beauty luxury advent calendars however MR PORTER have set the bar with their 12 days of grooming offering.
What have MR PORTER put in their advent calendar?
Beautifully housed in the watercolour-illustrated 2020 holiday box, 12 doors are ready to reveal an astounding array of grooming delights. For instance, have you tried Augustinus Bader’s, The Rich Cream?
