If you aren’t already familiar with 18.21 Man Made it’s a terrific Texas-based line. The manly men who own it are Angel del Solar, Aston LaFon and David del Solar, guys committed to creating excellent men’s grooming products with a fun, unusual twist. The packaging is an homage to the bootlegging of the American prohibition era, and the effect is masculine with a wink and a smile. They use the best ingredients and their signature fragrances are based on the scent of sweet tobacco.
18.21 Man Made has several holiday gift sets available and I am loving the Man Made Wash & Deodorant in Spiced Vanilla ($48, on sale for $43). The two products actually serve four purposes and leave your husband/son/dad/boyfriend/friend with benefits/just a friend/dude smelling fantastic.
The packaging is so cool – the outer carton looks like a barrel that was used during prohibition time for storing alcohol and the Man Made All-Over Body Wash looks like a classy bottle of booze. Love it! The hair/body wash is a shampoo as well as a conditioner plus a body soap that leaves hair and skin soft and supple.
Of course, the Deodorant also leaves him odor-free. This is a solid gel deodorant that has tapioca starch for absorbing perspiration as well as organic saccharomyces ferment filtrate and diatomaceous earth for breaking down odors. The Deodorant doesn’t have any aluminum, alcohol or baking soda. I know that my men are very picky about their deodorant and this one checks every box. It goes on clear and doesn’t stain clothing and it doesn’t irritate sensitive skin.
My favorite thing about the All-Over Body Wash and Deodorant is the scent – Spiced Vanilla (also known as Spiced Tobacco). Ooooh man it is AMAZING. Ginger and clove mellow to hints of coconut, French vanilla and star anise that sweeten amber, smoked tobacco, exotic woods and musk…I think it is the perfect manly scent. The other scent available is Sweet Tobacco: Citrus, spicy saffron, and dried fruits reveal hints of tonka bean, manuka honey, and dark-toned vanilla that sweeten undertones of tobacco, exotic woods and musk. Just yummy.
