Besides bespoke suits, sharp spectacles, and killer instincts, a clean-shaven face is a distinctive feature of a Kingsman. A member of this elite cadre of secret agents won’t step out with even the tiniest hint of 5 o’ clock shadow, so it makes sense that shear genius The Art of Shaving would partner with the team behind Kingsman: The Golden Circle (due in theaters September 22) to produce a shaving collection that helps you get super (spy) smooth.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle Bourbon Shave Collection includes everything you need to groom in a manner that befits a well-maintained gentleman: essential oil infused Pre-Shave Oil, hydrating Shaving Cream, and soothing After-Shave Balm. The Art of Shaving aptly chose to pair the products with the brand’s booze-inspired, warm, woodsy Bourbon Amber scent (perfect for the American counterparts, though Scotch might be a true Brit’s drink of choice). Rounding out the collection is a double-edge safety razor — because, even when it comes to shaving, spies live on the edge — imprinted with a Kingsman’s signature plaid pattern. If you would prefer a professional to wield the razor, The Art of Shaving is offering the indulgent Kingsman Experience — an express facial, royal shave, and scalp treatment — at some of its barbershops.
If you also want to smell of a clandestine organization, online retail shop Mr. Porter is showcasing an exclusive scent created by niche label The Perfumer’s Story by Azzi Glasser ($150). The fragrance blends refined English notes, including Earl Grey tea and laurel leaf, with more rugged American elements, like tobacco flower. In fact, Mr. Porter teamed up with the franchise’s director, Matthew Vaughn, and costumer designer, Arianne Phillips, to curate an entire line of Kingsman-inspired menswear.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle will be released in the United States on September 22. The film is scheduled to open in the United Kingdom on September 20.
