The Tricks of the Trade

We love a decadently long meal or a suspenseful, 15-inning game as much as the next person, but truth be told, we also relish a great shortcut. So we'll let you in on a few of our date night timesavers, which, when properly implemented, give you a 100 percent guarantee of romantic success.

Ditch The Stinky Cologne

You know when a dude walks by and you’re still smelling his cologne five minutes later? That’s too much. Men’s scents don’t have to be overpowering — at their best they should be a subtle reminder that you have good taste. And that, you know, smell good. The best way to find your match? Sniff and test. Or trust us: Bulgari’s new BVLGARI MAN Eau De Toilette is subtle and elegant — just like you.

Style It, Naturally

Thankfully, men’s styling products have evolved beyond the hardened, porcupine-like looks showcased on the cast of the Jersey Shore. To avoid looking like you’ve tried too hard, use a thickening shampoo in the shower, which will make your hair look fuller. Follow with a non-sticky styling paste like Kérastase Pâte Capital Force. Veer away from the overdone spikey looks by using just a dime-sized dollop of Pâte Capital Force to dry hair, working it through to the ends until you’ve got that nonchalantly tousled look.

Prime Your Lips

Now, we’re all adults here, and we know what eeeeeveryone’s hoping this date will lead to. (A goodnight kiss, obviously.) For both parties’ sake, make sure your lips are at their best. Ditch the middle school Chapstick for Anthony Logistics® for Men Natural Lip Balm — it gives the right amount of moisture without any shiny, ladylike effects. While you’re in the region, don’t you dare leave your place without minting up your pearly whites.

*Still pending with the sticklers in the legal department.
