The First Rule of Attraction: Always make a good impression
Looking a bit rough round the edges? Take yourself off to Elmina for a bit of a spruce-up with their Aveda men?s grooming products. Try the brand new Pure-formance? Exfoliating Shampoo for a head start. The organic formula reduces product build-up ? which can cause dandruff ? and clears scalp pores, leaving your hair flake-free and gleaming with health.
Aveda Men Pure-Formance? Exfoliating Shampoo, £11.60 at Elmina, 71 King Street, St Helier.
The Second Rule of Attraction: Be spontaneous
Too cash-strapped for a romantic weekend? Whisk your lover away to the market for a taste of the continent at a fraction of the cost. Le P?tit François serves that romantic classic, moules à la crème overlooking the central fountain ? and don?t forget, mussels are said to be an aphrodisiac?
Le P?tit François, Central Market, Halkett Street, St Helier.
The Third Rule of Attraction: Don?t forget the details
Men always notice a woman?s eyes. But women, well women look that bit further down. Women notice shoes. As worn by David Beckham, Brad Pitt and the England rugby team, Oliver Sweeney shoes are sought after by connoisseurs for their sleek styling and high-quality leather. The new season Stanzig, Mate and Heart shoes arrive at Mensclub this month, and there?s already a waiting list ?put your name down now.
Oliver Sweeney shoes, around £215 at Mensclub, 17 Halkett Place, St Helier. Tel: 731557
The Fourth Rule of Attraction: Expect to meet your dream partner?
?and throw away all those having-a-fat-day knickers. Studies have shown women behave differently when they are wearing sexy underwear. What better excuse for splurging on a fabulous set of undies? Plums is having a delivery of romantic, vintage-inspired lingerie from Californian-based lingerie store, Jonquil ? just what you need to unleash your inner Marilyn
Olivia chemise from Jonquil, around £120 at Plums, 7 La Colomberie, St Helier. Tel: 731302
The Fifth Rule of Attraction: The best accessory is a smile
So make sure yours is the brightest around with a professional teeth whitening treatment. After the first visit, impressions are made for thin gum shields which you use with special gel. Stay away from tea, coffee, red wine and curries during the treatment which should last a couple of weeks and enjoy your new sparkling smile!
Professional teeth whitening – £295 with follow-up treatments at around £20-30 a time.
