As Christmas and the colder months approach I always find myself purchasing a bottle of Molton Brown Re-charge Black Pepper Bodywash; with a spicy and warming scent, it’s perfect for frosty winter mornings. Conscious that December 25th is approaching and  with my customary bottle of black pepper shower gel lathering strongly, I felt now was a good time to introduce you to the men’s grooming sets on offer from Molton Brown this festive season.

As always; the quality of Molton Brown products are superb, the gift sets carefully considered and generously filled. For 2011 Molton Brown have introduced two gift sets specifically for men; ‘Solar’ which contains bath and body products, and ‘Electro’ which includes shaving and skincare specific items. Myself and Ape to Gentleman are obviously champions of fine quality men’s grooming products but despite this bias can guarantee no man will be disappointed with either of these two sets, regardless of his tendency to ‘groom’ or not.
