Celebrate the Men in Your Life 

 

On Father's Day, remember to thank those special men who are there when we need support, a hug or a vote of confidence.  Remember, not everyone has to be a Dad to be honored on Father's Day. 

Men love to be pampered, so I have put together a Father's Day Special that highlights those beneficial products that the men in your life will enjoy throughout the year.  In addition, I have included a list of 
Sunglasses 1 fragrances that are the favorites of my male clients.  My "Special" features a gift of a fragrance and a pair of Ultimate Vision Sports Sunglasses which are perfect for starting off the Summer. 

Many of my clients and I use The Sanddune which is also called "Your Exercising Companion" to help stay healthy and in good physical shape.   I have been asked to give more details, so I am so excited that I am including a short video to demonstrate its ease and benefits.  I have also included a video of my Herbal Invigorating Foot & Muscle Rub which goes hand in hand with the Sanddune to increase its benefits.     
Please contact me if you need help with your fragrance and formula selections, have special requests to help pamper your favorite men (or something for yourself), or want to place your order personally, I would love to hear from you.  Or, if you prefer, go to my website at www.vinci-rakos.com.

My Dad - Father's Day
Vintage photo of our Dad, Orlando 
    
History:  Our Dad loved the Herbal Invigorating Muscle & Foot Rub.  He owned a tavern and was always on his feet.  During the day, he would dab a little of the Lotion on his temples, neck and shoulders for that needed pick-me-up.  At night, he would rub the blend liberally over his tired, worn out feet, put on a pair of favorite socks and go to sleep.  Our Dad told me he would wake up feeling invigorated, refreshed and ready to go! 
 
As an extra treat, before you begin your day, apply a generous amount on your feet before you put on your socks, stockings or on your bare skin, especially if you are playing sports, golf or tennis.  Your feet will feel tingly and cool, while helping to make them feel soft and smooth.  I always rub the Lotion on my feet before I put on my socks and sneakers and begin my exercise on the Sanddune.

The Sanddune  
(Your Exercising Companion)


TOTAL CORE STRENGTH   
BALANCE  *  COORDINATION  *  TONING
 
The Sanddune is a low impact aerobic exercise that builds balance, strength, coordination, cardio and tones the lower extremities. Used by Dance Trainers, Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Pro Trainers and Orthopedic Specialists. Perfect in Rehab Facilities, Gyms, Dance Studios, Recreation Facilities and at Home by both Men and Women. 
Portable, Storable, Affordable. 
 
In more detail, the Sanddune is a memory type foam block (made of two different type of foams) that bounces back with a mirror type of resistance. This foam block has a no joint load so your back and legs do not feel stress when you are walking or running on it. I used to walk about an hour a day but some mornings I didn't have time or it got too hot, and walking on the cement took its toll on my knees. Now I use the Sanddune about five times a day about two to three minutes each time, and I love it. I still walk outdoors but only on the grass or on soft surfaces, and I combine the two activities during the day. My posture has gotten so much better, and so has my balance and flexibility.  I also rotate the Sanddune during use because there is a slight incline to help in your balance. 
 

What I Like To Do:   When not exercising on the Sanddune, I move it under my desk and rest my feet on it while I am working on the computer. This maneuver forces me to sit up straight while my legs are resting on the foam, helping to take the pressure off of my legs. I feel refreshed and relaxed. 

The whole family can benefit by using the Sanddune, just have everyone wear a pair of socks while exercising on the Sanddune.  It comes with an anti-bacterial washable cover in the pleasant color of grey.  The cover has fast evaporation and quickly draws moisture away from the skin;  blocks and absorbs UV-Rays to protect the skin. 

The Sanddune weighs 10 pounds and measures 26" H x 7"V x 22"W.   The cost is $279.00 plus tax (where appropriate) plus shipping & handling.   For more detailed information:  Click Here  

Gift With Purchase: With your purchase of the Sanddune, you will receive a handy, black canvas travel bag as your gift. The bag is x-large and was designed to hold the Sanddune, as well as your sports shoes, workout outfit and your personal necessities. Two sturdy cloth handles with reinforced pad, front pocket and an expansion closure highlight the bag.  Sanddune Travel Bag: $29.50 retail gift value. 

Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about the Sanddune.  800-545-4332.

Fragrance Favorites of Men

couple holding
Fragrance suggestions for the very special men in your life.  Or, choose his favorite fragrance from over
200 Vinci & Rakos Parfums.
  
   
African Frankincense: The parfum of the Gods, spicy warm and sensual with a balsamic twist of lemon.  When applying, thoughts of a fragrant, spiritual ritual will come to mind.  Dries down to a slightly warm and erotic, somewhat aphrodisiac feeling.  

Atlas:  Fresh, fougere green blend with spicy notes of cinnamon and cardamon and touches of lavender, bergamot and jasmine.  A mossy and woody dry down makes this the perfect spicy, aromatic floral blend.  A favorite of the men for over 25 years.  Drakkar type.  

Cashmere:  Cashmere is a comforting and tranquil aroma made with a blend of sensual sandalwood and sweet mandarin essential oils.  Soft citrus combines with warm woodsy notes to offer an aroma reminiscent of a true love.  Cashmere sweater?  Why not envelop your entire body in "cashmere" from head to toe.  

Citrus: An uplifting combination of fresh and cool notes with a warm herbal base.  The ideal clean and refreshing scent for the man and woman of action. 

Classic Spice:  The classic masculine scent starting off with cool and crisp notes of lemon and orange surrounded by spicy elements of cinnamon, carnation and heliotrope.  Sweet, powdery, oriental and balsamic with notes of musk, vanilla, tonka, cedarwood and amber blended together to bring thoughts of faraway lands to your mind.  For the man who would love to sail the world.  Old Spice type.    

CocoLime & Verbena:  Intense citrus notes of sweet and sour limes and juicy lemon verbena are enhanced with fresh coconut creating a clean, green and sunny experience.  The perfect must have refreshing scent for the man who loves citrus with a twist.  

Desert Rain & Patchouli:  Dark patchouli, vanilla and woods with a touch of green, highlighted with water notes makes this special blend an afternoon and evening delight.  Rich and dramatic with lots of depth, very sultry but with almost a soft whiskey dry down.  Men, take notice!  This could be your special signature scent.    
 
Earth:  A warm and sensual combination of white musk and earthy delights with a hint of floral accents.  It is warm and sensual but at the same time devastatingly fresh and clean smelling.  Both men and women find Earth arousingly exciting.  One musky whiff will have you coming back for more.  The scent of Earth allows everyone's personality and body chemistry to come through creating a more individual and unique fragrance experience.  Earth has been the signature scent of Vinci & Rakos * Who Makes Sense? for 25 years.
   
Egyptian Musk:   The perfect blend of rich and very woodsy notes couple with soft sandalwood and touches of animal magnetism.  The combination is an erotic experience. 

Egyptian Vanilla: Gentle and sweet, slightly woody combination of Egyptian Musk and Vanilla.  Warm and provocative, the kind of scent that you will never tire of because you feel so desired.  Perfect for both men and women.     
  
holding hands
English:  Very dry, fresh herbaceous scent with lavender and bergamot.  Spicy, woody notes of patchouli and cedar are combined with a mossy ambery dry down of tonka, oakmoss and musk notes with a touch of leather.  Cool and casual for the man who is both.  Azzaro type. 
 
Incense Musk: Some say incense musk is an aphrodisiac to help increase and encourage love and deep passion.  This sweet smelling and spicy blend will not disappoint.  The combination of animal and erotic notes will help satisfy the senses with pleasure.   
 
Leather:   Spicy and fresh top notes with woody, leathery and mossy warm tones.  A touch of jasmine and gardenia have been added to brighten up this herbaceous blend.  Elegantly informal.  Aramis type. 
    
Philip's Blend:   A combination of warm and floral notes.  Earth and gardenia have been surrounded with touches of rose, tuberose, Narcissus, and the French Blend of French Vanilla, Sheer Patchouli, Sheer Rose and a little extra Earth.  Created in such a delicate way that both men and women love this scent.  Which note will be highlighted on your skin?

Sandalwood:   Displays a balsamic, rich, warm and woody aroma with touches of sweetness.  For the adventurous, wear alone or add to your favorite oriental, floral or citrus-woody-mossy Chypre scents to create more depth and warmth. 
 
Sheer Ginseng Gold:   In the spirit of the original Ginseng Gold scent but with a lighter blend of spices, amber and vanilla accented with touches of bright citrus and green notes.  Warm and spicy created with an uplifting twist and great for the spring and summer months and the daytime.
 
Sheer Vanilla & Patchouli:  A classic blend of Sheer Vanilla with a dark, almost brooding patchouli creating lots of depth and richness, definitely smoky in its approach.  A must for everyone who loves patchouli and wants just a sweet touch of vanilla.  
 
Sheer Vanilla & Amber:   A warm, earthy and animalistic powdery combination created by blending together Sheer Vanilla and Amber notes.  Great to be worn alone or can be used as a base for other fragrances to create depth and intensity.  
 
Sky:  Refreshing, cool and classic scent with exhilarating citrus notes and warm, woody vetiver undertones, a favorite of men for 25 years.  Eternity for Men type.  
 
Steele:  Fresh citrus with floral and woody notes.  Dries down with powdery, spicy and oakmoss notes.  A client favorite for 25 years.  Eau Sauvage type.

Tattoo:  Sparkling, spicy and woodsy with rich and hardy oriental notes accented with a blend of oakmoss and vetiver.  Men love its ruggedness and depth.  A favorite scent for over 25 years.  Molton Brown Soap type.

Traveler:  Traveler was created by starting with City Parfum which is an elegant and sophisticated blend of aldehydes combined with rich floral, warm amber and patchouli notes.  Chocolate Cream, extra patchouli and a touch of gardenia were then blended together with City to round out the blend.  A very unique worldly scent for the traveler in all of us.     
 
Vetiver: The top of the scent is heavy, woody, earthy leading to subtle, sweet and sour accents.  The undertone is definitely woody-balsamic.  Can be worn alone or blended with your favorite citrus-woody and mossy Chypre scents.   

Victory:
  A fresh, lemony/citrus beginning, highlighted with notes of cedar, rosewood, fir, vanilla and amber.  This rugged but warm and seductive combination makes you think of walking in a deep, coniferous forest.  A new favorite of the men!  Versus type.

The Parfums have been arranged two ways to help in the selection of a new scent: Alphabetically and By Predominate Notes & Categories. The Parfum categories and descriptions were based on years of working and listening to the comments, preferences and interpretations of the clients. The sense of smell is very subjective, so no one will ever describe an aroma the same way, agree which category would apply or which notes are in a blend. The descriptions were written with these ideas and thoughts in mind, so many of the Parfums are listed in more than one category, and reflect the views of the clients. If pertinent, a reference to a fragrance type on the market is indicated.



Father's Day Special  
Mike 3 Parfums Black
   
My Father's Day Special features, with your purchase, the gift of a Parfum in the fragrance of your choice.  As a second gift, I will include a pair of Ultimate Vision Sports Sunglasses, perfect for those bright and sunny days ahead.  The Sports Sunglasses have been a favorite of the men for the last ten years.

ULTIMATE VISION SPORTS SUNGLASSES ....... Just perfect for driving, walking, running, gardening, golf, tennis, soccer, bicycling, skiing
and any other outdoor activity.

The wrap-around design was created to help keep out not only direct sun but also the sun's glare and strain, as well as wind and dust from the sides.  The design also helps to reduce crow's feet around the eyes.  Most sunglasses are heavy and slip off your nose making it hard to participate in outdoor activities.  These glasses weigh less than one ounce, so you won't even remember that you have them on, and the lenses won't hit your eyelashes.
 
Glasses Tall These slip-proof glasses are rimless across the bottom of the lenses so they won't interfere with your line of sight - especially beneficial when playing sports, such as golf and tennis - as they help increase your lateral vision.  The glasses screen out harmful UVA, UVB and UVC light, as well as damaging blue light (the short wave lengths of the light spectrum).  The Ultimate Vision Sports Style frames have amber lenses, great for water and snow skiers.  The frames that go around your ears are covered in soft, rubber material for added comfort and to help prevent slipping. 

The Sunglasses are presented in a black, faux leather drawstring bag.   Glasses available in the favorite frame color of black and there are a few frames available in the color of white, orange and red.
