 Blenheim Bouquet Deodorant Stick – If your usual deodorant is purchased at the grocery store, consider a more elegant scent for special occasions.

As one friend said recently, “This is the scent you wear with your double breasted suit”. $30 at http://store.asuitablewardrobe.net

 St George B&E Bourbon - Although crafted in Kentucky, this bourbon was blended in Alameda, California, by the spirit distillers at St George. The B&E stands for ‘breaking and entering’, and the guys at St George are happy to admit that they’ve stolen these barrels to add a little Californian ingenuity to Kentucky tradition. This bottling is made from 80 different barrels ranging in age from five to seven years. The result is a bright and spicy bourbon with notes of maple, banana, cinnamon, cloves and cherry cola. $37 at http://www.caskstore.com
