“We Believe: The Best Men Can Be” Gillette | Short Film

by MARCO CASTRO @marcomakeup

Bullying. Harassment. Is this the best a man can get? It's only by challenging ourselves to do more, that we can get closer to our best. To say the right thing, to act the right way. We are taking action at http://gillette.com/en-us/about/the-best-men-can-be. Join us.

Boys will be boys.

Gillette has released a global controversial campaign in conjunction with The Boys and Girls Clubs of America titled, “The Best Men can Be”, playing off their original tagline launched 30 years ago, “The Best A Man Can Get.”

The film showcases Gillette's point of view of how people can work together to set the right example for the next generation of men and take positive actions that change the culture of "toxic masculinity."

Men are not at their best today and many find themselves at a crossroads, caught between the past and a new era of masculinity. While it is clear that changes are needed, where and how we can start to effect that change is less obvious for many. And when the changes needed seem so monumental, it can feel daunting to begin... So it is time to do it together.

Gillette’s new tagline seeks to continue to inspire us all to be better every day, and to help create a new standard for boys to admire and for men to achieve... Because the boys of today are the men of tomorrow.

Gillette will be distributing $1 Million per year for the next three years to non-profit organizations executing the most interesting and impactful programs designed to help men of all ages achieve their personal best.

 

“The Alchemist’s Garden” Gucci

by MARCO CASTRO @marcomakeup

"It is a kind of bathroom that belongs to the imagination, where strange objects are kept, and someone obsessed with smells and fragrances. The images are evocative of a suspended time, which is then what makes you experience a scent, to bring you back to an imaginary place," AlessandroMichele on the campaign video for the The Alchemist's Garden collection.

The Alchemist’s Garden.

Perfume has the power to trigger emotions and transport us to a particular place in time, to remind us of that someone we loved or were intimate with... Perfume has been also been worn for esoteric purposes and many of them possess aphrodisiac effects when mixed with your own natural scent.

I’m a big perfume collector and every single one in my collection have their own purpose, depending on the time of day or even my mood. I consider fragrance equally if not more important as fashion and even though you cannot see it, your perfume becomes part of who you are, your personality and your personal trademark.

Having previously worked together on Bloom, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele partnered with master perfumer Alberto Morillas for this exquisite collection. With seven keynotes: violet, amber, iris, mimosa, rose, woods, and oud the scents combine pure natural plants and flowers, layered with modern molecules.

This singular scents in the eaux de parfum, acque profumate and perfumed oils can be layered in a multitude of combinations to construct a customizable, special sillage—the amount the perfume lingers in the air when it is worn.
