Rob Lowe on Profile Fragrance, Regrettable Colognes from the 1970s and the Ultimate Barometer of Success in Life

Rob Lowe with his therapist on The Grinder, Maya Rudolph

We remain inspired by Rob Lowe, the film and TV icon who has somehow found time to become a serious player in men’s skincare and fragrance while working on four TV shows: Moonbeam City, the Lion Guard, You, Me & the Apocalypse and The Grinder (so apropos).

With Rob’s self-care brand Profile now offering its debut scent, “Amber Wood 18,” exclusively at Nordstrom, we got on the phone and chatted about the details of the fragrance, regrettable colognes from the 1970s and what it means to be truly successful in life.

Because Rob is the man of the people, you can conduct your own Q&A as well: in person March 18 at 5 pm in our Seattle flagship, or pose your question right now on Twitter by tweeting to @Nordstrom with #nordstromxroblowe, where you might get a video response.

Interviews Men’s Grooming & Fragrance

Kiehl’s President Chris Salgardo Literally Wrote the Book on Grooming and Skincare for Men

SAM_B_10655889
The predominant male attitude on grooming and skincare is that they are optional. At least that’s what we hear from president of Kiehl’s and noted beard-wearer Chris Salgardo.

chrissalgardoBut imagine if Rob Lowe thought that way. There would be no Rob Lowe.

So in the interest of correcting this gross misunderstanding, Salgardo wrote Manmade, a book with grooming and skincare tips men can and should use right now–and which will keep them looking younger, longer. Perhaps you know a man who could use this in his life?

Salgardo told us all about the book on the phone. The conversation is below.

And if you happen to be in/near Seattle on December 11, meet up with Salgardo in our flagship store to talk about his book and knock back a cold one. The event is called, tantalizingly, Beards and Brew.
