Whether you like it or not you are judged on a daily basis, and of course first impressions are lasting impressions. To make the right impression with the ladies there are three areas where you need to pay close attention.

The Watch

The Watch

Women look at hands, and while they are looking at your hands they also check out the watch you are wearing. A cheap and tacky novelty watch may tell her you have a sense of humour, but a vintage solid gold Tiffany will tell her so much more. If she mentions the watch, just give it a nonchalant glance and pass it off as a family heirloom. This of course speaks volumes; money in the family, good taste, breeding. Featured here is a rare and beautiful Tiffany & Co gents vintage watch, dating from the 1960s. Tiffany & Co is probably America’s finest jewellers so you’ve already made a spectacular impression. The watch is of course in very good condition, with only the minor wear you would expect. It features a heavy solid 14ct gold case, original winding crown, a very clean dial, and a quality 17 jewel Swiss movement. It’s currently available on Tempus Suisse.

The Shoes

Church's Wingtip brogues

Because so many women are tuned into shoes, they will often admit that good quality shoes on a man are an instant turn on. The shoes don’t be need to be flashy, in fact the more quiet and restrained, the more they speak of confidence, untapped charisma and power. Rich brown wingtip patent leather Church’s brogues with leather soles and decorative brogue perforation throughout should do the trick. Sadly you can’t look to Britain for too much these days, but you can still rely on British craftsmanship when it comes to shoes. You can polish these beauties to a high shine and the sturdy leather soles make a wonderfully crisp sound as they walk across concrete or gravel. Match these with the right suit and and your feet will be sending out powerful signals of unspoken passion. You can find these at Mr. Porter

The Aftershave

Bvlgari Extreme

The vast majority of women have a heightened sense of smell and can detect unwashed socks from forty paces. Smell is probably the strongest attractant of all, so you have to give yourself a sporting chance by making yourself smell as good as possible. Here we are best leaving such things to our friends on the continent. Choose a French or Italian aftershave and you will subtly suffuse the air with hints of the wild woods and spices. Bvlgari Extreme by Bvlgari is a woody aromatic fragrance for men. Created in 1999, the nose behind this fragrance is by Jacques Cavallier. Top notes are coriander, lavender, galbanum, tea, grapefruit, neroli, petit grain and bergamot; middle notes are nutmeg, pepper, balsam fir, guaiac wood, brazilian rosewood and cardamom; base notes are orris, sandalwood, musk, oakmoss and cedar. Bvlgari is available at all good pharmacies, online, and of course at duty free.

So once you put all these elements together you are making powerfully masculine statements: a solid gold timepiece from America’s premier jeweller, quality British made leather shoes, and a beguiling continental scent of the outdoors about you; an irresistible combination that helps you to say so much without saying anything at all.
