The Gentle-Man Range
We sat down with Paul in this ‘Meet the Brand’ post to find out what inspired him to create The Gentle-Man Range and to also give us some tips on how to get the best out of his products. Answered by Dr Paul Byrne (Founder)
Tell us a bit about The Gentle-Man Range?
What was the inspiration for creating The Gentle-Man Range?
In three words, how would you describe each of your products?
You recently added the beard oil to your collection, what was the reason behind creating a beard oil for the modern gentleman? And what makes your beard oil different?
I created the beard oil because it was the most requested product that was not in my range. In particular, it was Harvey Nichols who fed back to me that they were repeatedly being asked for a beard oil. It is the fragrance that makes my beard oil different as I have used the same signature fragrance found in my eau de toilette. When I looked at what was available in the market, too often the fragrances were of the same type, generally woody/herbal reminiscent of the traditional woodsman. I wanted my beard oil to appeal to the modern gentleman who has decided to sport some facial fur.
For both, The Gentle-Man Range Body Washes & Beard Oils, what would be your estimated usage date? How long would you expect these products to last for a gentleman?
From production all of the products in the range have a shelf-life of 3 years. From purchase, I would expect a bottle of the beard oil to last 6 months being applied daily while a bottle of the body wash would last 1 month with daily showering.
Ingredients are key when creating a grooming product, what are the benefits of the different washes from the body wash range?
The three body washes are all formulated with the same low irritation score foaming agents so in terms of cleansing action they all perform the same. They are also high foaming so can be used to great effect in the bath. The difference lies in the fragrance. I think of them as the cool one, the warm one and the hot one. The peppermint is the cool one, great for the morning shower to awaken the senses and make the morning getaway. The sandalwood is the warm sensuous one, a classic fragrance to be used for those up close and personal moments while the black pepper is the hot spicy one, best one to be worn when heading out for a night of fun and intrigue.
What is your definition of a ‘Gentleman’?
A gentleman is someone who has respect for himself and his actions and in equal measure for all those around him in everything he does.
And finally, what is your number one grooming tip?
Apart from always use The Gentle-Man Range, I say never underestimate the benefit of maintaining a clean and sharp razor.
We would like to thank Paul for taking the time to answer our questions and we hope you have got as much out of this as we did. Maybe you have a question that we didn’t ask? Reach out to us on Twitter @RegalGentleman & @GentleManRange.
