Industry News

For the launch of Gentleman Society, its new men’s fragrance, Givenchy Parfums has created Givenchy Conversations, a podcast featuring inspiring, multi-talented personalities. Over the course of friendly conversations with French journalist Pierre M’Pelé, also known as Pam Boy, guests talk about their passions, their expertise and their perspectives on masculinity. They all share the values Givenchy Parfums holds so dear: values of care, audacity and openness. In their own way, each guest invites the listener to join the Gentleman Society, which is revisiting archetypes of the gentleman and anchoring the idea in a new modernity.

One episode gives the floor to British artist Benjamin Clementine, the face of the new fragrance and a passionate creator. Another invites perfumers Maïa Lernout and Karine Dubreuil, who composed the Gentleman Society fragrance, to express themselves about their art and life paths. Further episodes showcase three talents sharing their visions of masculinity as well as their creative processes.

The Givenchy Conversations podcast is available on all streaming platforms and via givenchybeauty or the QR code on the fold of the Gentleman Society box.


Skin Proud have today (28th April – World Pay It Forward Day) launched the first community led Pay It Forward For a Brighter Future campaign for Mental Health Awareness Month.

While people of all ages encounter many of the same stressors as generations before them, many Gen-Zs experience a more intense version of them given their exposure to news and social media outlets, living through a global pandemic, economic downturn and global conflict that exist today.​ This Mental Health Awareness Month, Skin Proud wants to shift the focus to positivity and kindness by highlighting the positive mental health benefits of paying it forward.

Skin Proud will be using their social platforms to champion youth Mental Health organisations who are doing important work for Gen Z in the mental health space, bringing their missions to the forefront of the conversations with our community and celebrating their efforts. Skin Proud will be putting their Proud community at the heart of the campaign calling on their involvement by encouraging them to donate to the Brighter Future Fundraiser and to nominate the youth Mental Health charity that they champion. The fundraiser and voting poll will be open for the month of May, with the proceeds going to the charity of the Skin Proud’s community’s choosing.​
