It seems to have only been the past couple of years where ‘Beauty Advent Calendars’ have really taken off and have now become a firm favourite when it comes to counting down the days until Christmas!


Ranging from high street brands to those that are more luxurious, there really is a calendar out there for everybody and luckily for you, I have 3 to share with you! 2 of these Advent Calendars are Male Grooming and Beauty and my third one (which I couldn’t resist sharing) is a chocolate one as I like to stick to tradition and let’s face it, there’s a unique taste that tastes so much sweeter out of an Advent Calendar as opposed to its original packaging am I right…?

One of my favourite Chocolatiers is Hotel Chocolat and having worked with the brand before on creating content, I couldn’t resist treating myself to one of their Advent Calendars this year! I asked my followers which type of flavour I should go for as this year Hotel Chocolat have gone all out with an expansive range such as Milk, Caramel, Dark, White, Supermilk and 100% Dark Chocolate. The overall majority vote went to Dark Chocolate which was just as well as Dark Chocolate is my favourite flavour!

L'Occitane are renowned for their luxurious skincare and body-care ranges, so it's rather exciting to hear of their newly launched men's fragrances collection! I have curated a little wishlist of the fragrances that appeal to me the most, and will hopefully be able to try out myself one day!

L'Occitan Eau de Toilette

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Petitgrain
  • Middle Notes: Cedar Wood, Pink Pepper 
  • Base Notes: Cade Wood, Cistus, Iris

A scent that sounds ideal for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons, which lavendar has been blended with the peppery, nutmeg scent of burnt wood.

I chose this scent because it sounds incredibly warm and rich!
