It’s officially the first day of November which means one thing and one thing only – dodgy moustaches. That’s right dear readers, Movember is upon us and all throughout the month many a man will be sporting questionable facial foliage all for a very wonderful and worthy cause. The aim is that, through the medium of fanciful tashes we will change the face of men’s health.
The Candy Perfume Boy isn’t exempt from all of this madness and even though he looks utterly ridiculous with a moustache (and I mean UTTERLY ridiculous) he is willing to offer his face up for ridicule in order to raise money for the good of his fellow ‘mo bros’. This means that this year I will once again be joining Team Penhaligon’s in their crusade to raise one heck of a lot of dough for men’s health.
Throughout the month I shall be posting regular ‘mo updates’ on Moustache Mondays and The Candy Perfume Boy (the blog that is) will be focusing on all things masculine, with reviews of a number of manly fragrances, a man-focused edition of the Scent a Celebrity series, plus a whole host of other masculine things (grr). In addition to all of this I’ll also be looking at some classic men’s fragrances on Escentual in a series I’m ingeniously dubbing ‘Movember Masculines’. All-in-all it’s going to be a fun month!
It is day 19 and week three of the month of Movember and Mo growing is Mo-st definitely in full swing. I am constantly surprised by how surprisingly decent it looks. I expected it to look entirely laughable but I am getting lots of comments from people who know me that think that it looks suits me and that, here’s the kicker, I should think about keeping it. Now that is something I am not sure about….
Although the Mo is looking good I must admit that it is getting to the point where it is starting to feel weird. I guess I just cannot get used to having some growth on my top lip! The good news is that I will be paying a visit to the Official Movember Barbershop on Thursday to have a bit of a Mo trim and tidy-up. Here’s hoping that the professionals will be able to style it up a bit.
So it’s day 11 of Movember and Week 2 of Moustache Mondays which means it is time for my weekly Mo update! That’s right, you may be sick to the back teeth of me banging on about Movember, but as promised I am here to keep you up to date with all that relates to my facial hair, and it seems that we’ve had quite a bit of progress since week 1….
As you can see by the picture above, which was taken yesterday on day 10, the Mo is in full fuzz mode. I have to admit that it really doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would, although since having my hair did I do look a tad Hitler-esque without my glasses on, but on the whole I am growing rather attached to it.
