№1 What makes Florence unique?

Florence is a city, that never gets totally discovered because of its inherent beauty.


Made for a morning, post-workout or evening shower, the 011 Hair & Body Wash combines the needs of a man’s body as well as scalp and hair. The 011 provides effective cleansing with a refreshing, revitalizing sensation, making it a potent yet not aggressive companion for most men and skin types. A rich formulation and premium, natural ingredients sooth as well as protect the skin whilst a subtle, elegant as well as fresh natural scent gently awaken the mind.


№2. What does social media mean to you?

I primarily define myself through my work. Therefore, my intention is to be less attention seeking – and instead be alive.


The 021 Shaving Crème, basis for the essential morning routine, creates a wet shave experience that a man looks forward to, every day anew. The potent, natural ingredients firstly soften the facial hair as well as enhance the gliding properties of the blade across the skin. Secondly, the formulation soothes and rejuvenates the skin.
