There are two types of men on Valentine’s Day – those who have plans and those who don’t. We know you’re the latter, and we’ve got you covered with a fancy restaurant up in the mountains and the latest speakeasy bar to have a drink after your dinner date. Once that’s done, all you need to work on is yourself. With our foolproof grooming guide that will have you looking and smelling dashing, your date will have no choice but to fall head over heels in love with you – all over again, if you’re in a relationship. Now, go spread the love with our handy grooming routine.


1. Pick out a classic fragranceHugo Boss perfume

Our pick: BOSS Bottled Classic, RM357


No man’s grooming routine is complete without the perfect scent. It’s always a good choice to go with a classic, timeless scent that can withstand trends. The classic BOSS Bottled fragrance is precisely this with top notes of apple and citrus, followed by floral and spicy heart notes of pelargonium, warm cinnamon, and cloves. Towards the end of the day, the scent unfolds into something warmer and more masculine – sandalwood, vetiver, and cedar – the perfect sexy end to your date night.
