Men's grooming products including sunglasses, bag and book

5 MINUTES WITH MIKOLAJ

Elegance is not about standing out, but being remembered.

 

The next few weeks are all about men. The London men’s collection is only a few days away, Pitti UOMO is just around the corner and it is less than 2 weeks till Father’s day.

 

Malée is unisex and not only a firm favourite with the ladies but with also men. Join us as we explore scent and senses with fashion blogger and male influencer Mikolaj of Bluloafers – http://blueloafers.com

 

5 minutes in between outfit changes after his 9-5 as a structural engineer and sartorial anecdotes, Mikolaj shares his style must haves, scent preferences and healthy lifestyle routines.

 

Your favourite scent

 

I love the smell of leather, it reminds me of quality shoes and bags.

 

Favourite Beverage?

 

I am partial to a good cup of freshly brewed Dominican black coffee and love a good herbal tea. Gin and tonic after 6pm 😉

 

What is your current beauty routine?

 

I only use natural products; I moisturise after every shower. I am quite allergy prone so I am very careful about what I put on my skin and even what I eat. I am a loyalist when it comes to my choices in products and stand by what works after years of trying to find the right fit for me.

 

Your design preference?

 

I consider myself to be very aesthetically driven, I like packaging that is simple and minimalist with clean lines.

 

Scent and Emotion?

 

The scent of freshly brewed coffee reminds me of weekend mornings, with a fresh cup of black brewed coffee, relaxed, feet up with a newspaper.

 

If you had to describe Verdure?

 

It is fruity, fresh and reminds me of summer.

 

Your wanderlust?

 

I would love to safari in Africa. Game drives, tracking and spotting wild life in its natural habitat.

 

Some of Mikolaj’s favourite items:

 

True Style by G. Bruce Boyer, the principles and history of classic menswear.

 

Sunglasses are a great accessory, paired with an unlined Italian tie and lightweight wool/silk pocket square. Exquisite Trimmings and Monsieur Fox are my go to places for accessories.

 

Malée’s Eau De Parfum 

 

– A handmade sartorial wallet that holds some cash and cards.
