Meet my new Inspo – Anele Papu, South African born photographer and all-round multi talented creative.

I came across Anele’s instagram page one time (cant really remember how, lol) but ever since i followed him i have received a decent amount of motivation to further my fashion skills, photography skills and also, well im thinking of starting the gym and Anele does all three. 

One of the things i noticed about this guy is the way he simply alligns his outfits, so simple and neat, and they just come out really awesome. His passion for photography has given me a little further push to continue my hunt for a personal good quality camera to improve my fashion showcases, and the fact that he works out too, and im about to start working out, how much more inspiration could one be looking for? 

Born in Port Elizabeth, Papu attended the school of Music, Art & Design at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. He gained incredible experience over the past two years through his Multimedia & Marketing company, Vulzee. It was during this time he had the pleasure of working and collaborating in multiple projects with South Africa’s finest talent and exceptional companies.

His career was launched when he recently moved to Johannesburg in early 2016 and has had the opportunity to collaborate and work with remarkable brands such as Roll Royce, Adidas, Huawei, Daniel Wellington, Uber South Africa, TopMan, Jaguar South Africa. His work has been featured in exhibitions with Adidas and publications such as GQ South Africa.

The 6 Perfumes every man MUST have in his collection.

Clear away that cologne you have on your dressing table Lad because once you try out at least ONE of these colognes i will list down, you will fall in love with yourself even more and your confidence levels will rise up, TRUST ME.

Now i must inform you, i havent owned all of these yet but i have tested them before in my local perfume shops and best believe me, they made me want to spend the last penny i had! They have this really good, rich smell that wont even affect you if you have a flu, and they will have each person that walks past you wonder who just walked past them; not to mention the sudden increase in the hugs you will receive everyday once the ladies discover, haha.

Not to waste much time, and with brief descriptions (because, well original perfume have this slight similarity) here are the Top 6 perfumes you should have seated in your closet or on your dressing table everyday (i was going to list 5 only but I failed to remove one).

6). Diesel – Fuel for life

I remember one time i went to visit my cousin Chilekwa at his room, and as cousins behave you just want to try out whatever he has anyway, i saw this cologne in his closet and tried it and it changed my whole perception about the brand Diesel. This cologne has a really good smell that lasts all day, and is very noticeable each time you hang around people for a few minutes. I cant fully descibe a scent but i will advise you to try it out the next time you go shopping. I just finished my bottle a few days ago.

5). Lacoste – Jaune – Optimistic

I have known Lacoste for a long time now but the first time i saw this specific cologne was when South African Fashion Blogger ‘Siyabonga Beyila’ posted it on his Instagram. It looked nice because of the color and it raised curiosity you know. So one time i went over to Foschini i saw it, tested it, and OMG i fell in love. It has a wonderful flowery scent that goes well with any occasion but especially casual events and will probably keep you smiling all day (like it did to me that day). Im yet to buy it once i have enough cash.

4).  Polo Black

I havent owned this one yet but that one time i tried it out at my friend’s room, i begged for him to give it to me (and No he didnt, sucked). I have always known Ralph Lauren to be good at clothing but little did i know he is also a beast when it comes to perfumes too. Im saying this because even ‘Polo Sport’ is just as good. Yet to own one Polo Black perfume bottle as soon as possible.

3). Hugo Boss – Just Different

Even the slogan says it guys, Hugo Boss Just Different is the best Hugo Boss perfume i have smelled so far. Talk about Class, this perfume will have every girl you walk past twisting her head to know who exactly the dude that walked past her is. I havent owned it yet but i tried it out at Foschini too and best believe me, i was sniffing my coat all the way on my bus back to school! So next time you want to get a perfume bottle, be different, get Hugo Boss ‘Just Different’.

2). 212 Vip are you on the list Nyc – Gold edition.

The competition is stiff here guys haha. Carolina Herrera figured it out here. Now, not just any 212, but the VIP – Gold. Like OMG, i have been owning 212 NYC plain and 212 Men and little did I know none of these (according to my preference) smelled any better than the Gold edition. I wont go any further descibing it, ill leave it to you to try out. Cheers. Good luck. Buy it. Go. – NO WAIT!! I have one more… (Drum roll)

1). Tom Ford – Black Orchid!

YESSS the exclamation mark has to be there. Oh you think im exaggerating? Go try it bro. This is by far, the BEST perfume i have ever smelled and i MUST have this one in my collection very soon. Its smell is RICH, lasts very long, and will definitely give you a large chance to get your crush. It changes your whole definition, it gives you the utmost attention, it will have you smelling yourself like a retard all day. It’s beautiful guys, i cant even explain it any better. But, it is quite pricey so you might want to check your account first before walking into a store, lol. I have smelled other Tom Fords like Noir, Tuscan Leather and Grey Vetiver and well, they just werent up to level. So if you, Lad, have commas in your account, get up, and go try it out. Tell me if you wont walk out with it.
Those are the top 6 colognes i would advise you guys to try out. If you dont have enough bucks, save for at least one of them; you wont regret.
