Valentines Day 2017 Gifts for Him: Fragrance

When we were considering which fragrances to carry at ULAH, we knew we wanted something special and unique — something that can’t be found everywhere. We discovered two lines that are not only hard to find, but are also masculine, sophisticated, and come from the highest quality materials.

ULAH carries Parfums de Marly (left) and Atelier Cologne (right).
  1. Parfums de Marly: Staying true to its regal roots, Parfums de Marly delivers complex and sophisticated fragrances. Their fragrances bear the names of the breeds of horses that they have been inspired from, while paying homage to the aromatic courts of King Louis XV in 18th century France. Of their extensive line, ULAH carries Herod, Pegasus, Godolphin,  Galloway, Byerley, Layton, and Oajan. To learn more about Parfums de Marly, visit their site by clicking here.
  2. Atelier Cologne: This is the first of a new kind of pure perfume fragrance called Cologne Absolue. Atelier Cologne blended citruses with the most precious natural raw materials. The result is a line of perfectly balanced creations that have exceptionally long lasting power. Each Cologne Absolue expresses a story of powerful memories and treasured emotions. ULAH currently carries Cédrat Enivrant, Vétiver Fatal, Gold Leather, Santal Carmin, Poivre Electrique, Tobacco Nuit. To learn more about Atelier Cologne, visit their site by clicking here.

Holiday 2016 Gifts for Him: Filson

If you have one of those of guys to shop for who has everything, consider Filson bags, wallets, or watches. Filson is a legacy brand that has been making top quality leather, wool, and canvas goods since 1897. In fact, they still keep their manufacturing here at home in the United States, and have been creating rugged products with real brass hardware in Seattle since their conception. One of our personal favorites is the 24 Hour Tin Briefcase, which I carry to ULAH every day — packed with my gym shoes and clothes, laptop, and notepads. Stop by ULAH in Woodside Village and see which of the Filson products fits your man’s needs.

Holiday 2016 Gifts for Him: Masculine Candles

Many people may be surprised at the popularity of candles among men. More and more men are buying candles with masculine scents. Early in our development, we wanted to make our own line of masculine candles — so we partnered with local duo Wood + Wick to help create our first evolving line of candles. We named it the Boyhood Collection, inspired by memories that ULAH co-owner Buck Wimberly had as a child. He felt that others would resonate with the memories and scents.

“In my early years, I grew up in the plains of rural West Texas. I remember the baseball games, the classic small-town barbershop experiences, and being fascinated with tumbleweeds. As I grew into my teens while living in the Kansas City area, some of my favorite memories were camping and going on float trips with friends.” – Buck Wimberly

You can find these candles — and many other great holiday gifts for men — in KC’s new men’s apparel and lifestyle store, ULAH, owned by Buck Wimberly and Joey Mendez.

OUTFIELDER – Whether you practiced out in the field, or sat on the bench to watch your friends play — our combination of fresh cut grass and worn leather will stir up memories of America’s most nostalgic sport.

BARBERSHOP – Leather, cardamom, vanilla, and plum will remind you of sitting in the barber’s chair smelling the scent of tonics and pomades as you were getting a fresh clean cut.

TUMBLEWEED – Notes of sandalwood and grass make this scent reminiscent of the dry westerly winds that often blow tumbleweeds across the plains of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.

PUP TENT – Pine, clove, and wood smoke notes will take you back to those memorable trips with friends and family — gathering around the campfire and telling stories before you slept the night away in the middle of the woods.

FLOAT TRIP – Patchouli, amber, clove, sandalwood, smoke, saffron, whiskey, and hickory combine to stir up memories of floating down the river for hours with friends before heading back to camp.
