The Valentine’s Gift that Keeps on Giving


Good morning, lovelies! Did you observe Valentine’s Day over the weekend, or are you holding out for the 14th? Either way, I strongly suggest you take advantage of the next 48 hours to pick up the best cologne I’ve smelled in YEARS and give it to someone you cozy up to on a regular basis. Jack Black Signature Blue Mark Eau de Parfum ($70) smells like MAN, in the best possible way. Clean yet rugged, sporty yet sophisticated. Think JFK Jr. And the packaging reminds me of an old cigar box. My only concern is that should I ever encounter someone other than Mr. Bets wearing this scent, the scene could turn into an AXE commercial.
Available in stores and online at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’sNeiman Marcus, and Saks.
