All Your Grooming Essentials Are in Triumph & Disaster’s Stash Box

Some gifts we receive from our fathers are forgotten, while others stay with us forever. The latter is the case for Dion Nash, who, at age 13, received a framed copy of Rudyard Kipling’s poem, “If,” from his father. At the time, Nash was at the rebellious age of early adolescence, so he scrawled all over it and threw it in a drawer. The poem stuck with him for decades, and over 20 years later when he decided to establish a line of grooming products, Nash plucked the words “Triumph and Disaster” from the line, “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster.”

Based in New Zealand, Triumph & Disaster lives by the mantra “Derived from nature, engineered with science,” making soap, moisturizer, shave cream, a scrub — and the all-in-one Stash Box, just so you can try out the whole line before committing. Derived from apothecary sets from back in the day, the set comes with all the essentials a guy needs for silky smooth skin: Old Fashioned Shave Cream, a Badger Hair Shave brush, Rock & Roll Suicide Face Cream and Gameface Moisturizer.

We know your girl will be happy after you’ve used Triumph & Disaster’s Stash Box. Best of all, after you’ve finished all the products, you can use the box to store baseball cards, coins, condoms, knives or anything else that you need to keep hidden away. Triumph & Disaster Stash Box, $160 at
