Austin Powers is right to be confident -- women love British men. I should know -- I married one! I have to admit that Alfie's accent was definitely a turn-on :) Not every male can sound like a Brit, but any male can smell like one -- or at least, smell like the perfect British gentleman in every woman's romantic imagination! British Sterling men's cologne, a favorite from the 70's, is making a comeback with the introduction of two new fragrances: H.I.M. Reserve and H.I.M. Private Stock. I received a sample, and I think both fragrances are great!
British Sterling H.I.M. ‘Private Stock’ -- which showcases fresh citruses combined with crisp woods, aromatic spices and rich undertones
British Sterling H.I.M. ‘Reserve’ -- a provocative oriental blend of fresh citruses, bold spices and sensual woods
I find the Private Stock to be a bit lighter and fresher than the Reserve, which smells more like a night time cologne. I've given both to Alfie for an early Father' Day present, and I love how both smell on him! I like both, but I think I have to give Reserve the edge -- it's definitely sexier, just the way I like men to smell on a date :)
I also love the bottle itself! It looks sophisticated and elegant -- it's shaped like a liquor flask, with a metal top half and a matte glass bottom half.
Sometimes when I remove the metal cap, the inner plastic cap (which is supposed to be securely attached to the outside metal cap lining) doesn't come off
The Bottom line
British Sterling looks and smells like an expensive cologne, but at just $24.99, it makes a great, affordable gift for dads (not to mention granddads, brothers, uncles, friends, and boyfriends!).
