A little while ago, we got an email from Barneys New York wanting to interview The Urban Gentleman for Barneys.com. And of course being the historic and iconic store they are we were very obliged and honored to do so. Check out "The (anonymous) Urban Gentleman" interview, as they playfully say, HERE.
We're excited to be one of the very first men's fashion features, on, or should I say "in" the famous Barney's Window. Side note: I didn't know there was so much "mystery" around The Urban Gent team, lol, but for those who don't know us: Kanayo King, Cindy Samoht, ( <— we're the main two) and there are a small handful of contributors (and a meticulously expanding Urban Gent family) who help make The Urban Gentleman possible. (special thanks to Jean and Max).

We reviewed Power by 50 earlier this month, and though many of our favorite colognes have lighter/airier notes, we were impressed with Power. Having a traditional, masculine scent in your fragrance collection is a must. So the good folks at "Power by 50" are offering Urban Gent readers a 50% off discount on the cologne (and the cologne set) until tomorrow… so if you're even a little bit interested be sure to try it out. (Just click the "Power" button on the right scroll bar).
TOP NOTES: lemon leaves, black pepper, and artemisia
MIDDLE NOTES: dark wood, coriander, and nutmeg
BASE NOTES: patchouli, musk, and oak moss.
The "Power" look.
