Extraordinary Man Box Review Winter 2019
From the editors of BCLiving, Extraordinary Man Box is a seasonal subscription box filled with on-trend products & accessories that redefine extraordinary style. Combining their experience and knowledge of the hottest trends, they have put together an uncompromising package that arrives in your mailbox each season. They kindly sent us this box for review.
This will be our third time reviewing Extraordinary Man Box. Our first box was the Spring 2019 box and our second box was the Summer 2019 box. We missed the Fall box but we are getting back on track with the Winter 2019 box.
While we really enjoyed the first two boxes we received, the Winter Extraordinary Man Box is by far our favorite. We really hope that this is what we can expect to see going forward.
When you sign up for an Extraordinary Man Box subscription you can choose to pay every month or every 3 months. You will receive a new box each season and every box will include:
- Extraordinary attire – From socks to lapel pins, they are selected to make a statement
- Extraordinary personal care – Part of what elevates you is the care you give to not only your clothes but to yourself. Using only high-quality ingredients, these products will keep you feeling fresh.
- Extraordinary decor and accessories – Whether they are for your home or you, these will add that subtle bit of class that you know that’s what it’s all about.
Here’s a closer look at what we received in the Winter Extraordinary Man Box……
Gentleman of the North Scarf ($39.95)
Toronto’s Gentleman of the North is proudly Canadian – and that shows in the style of their fashionable and functional accessories. This soft and cozy plaid scarf is designed to keep you warm throughout the season ahead. Whether you received the blue or black version, its shorter, versatile design means it can be used daily, or as the perfect addition to a dress coat or suit.
We are very familiar with this brand and were happy to see it in the box. This cozy plaid scarf is perfect for the season and a great accessory for any wardrobe.
Brockman’s Chocolates Truffle Assortment ($10.99)
We couldn’t let you go through the holiday season without some sweet treats, and Brockman’s Chocolates makes some of our very favourites. We love their signature truffle collection, Truffini – available in premium dark, milk and white chocolate in 10 flavours that appeal to even the choosiest chocolate fans.
Easily the best part of the box! If you haven’t tried Brockman’s Chocolates you are missing out. They also have a wonderful little product called Crunchetti, which is a favorite here at the AYOB office. We are equally excited to give the truffles a try.
Extraordinary Man Waffle Knit Beanie ($25)
The beanie (or as we Canadians say “toque”) is an unapologetic staple in any winter wardrobe. Its no-frills style makes it a must-have and this grey, waffle-knit version designed exclusively for subscribers of the Extraordinary Man Box, provides warmth while also keeping your right on trend.
This is our favorite item in the Winter box. It’s classic, functional and absolutely perfect for the Winter season. Toques are a must-have during the Winter months and this one is extremely versatile thanks to the neutral color and classic waffle-knit.
Canva Candle Co. Best Coast Candle ($15.95)
With 40 hours of burn time, this evergreen and cedar wood scented candle from Port Moody’s Canvas Candle Co. will keep the holidays fragrant and bright. Inspired by the West Coast the Best Coast candle is made of North American grown 100% soy wax with a cotton wick, and is hand-poured for quality and consistency.
When it comes to Canadian Candle Companies Canvas Candle Co. is one of our faves. We love the gold tin, the simple logo and the amazing scent. Best Coast is a mix of evergreen, vetiver and cedar wood. Take our word for it………it smells amazing!!
Groom Moisturizing Shower Gel ($26)
The winter months can be tough on your skin, so we called in the experts from Montreal-based Groom, who take pride in manufacturing their products in-house using natural and eco-friendly ingredients. Their deeply moisturizing shower gel provides a rich lather and has a woodsy cedar fragrance.
This is a brand we aren’t familiar with but are happy to discover. It’s a full-size bottle, made from nature-derived ingredients, and has the most uplifting scent. Subscribers are going to love this one.
Avventura Outdoors Credit Card Multi-Tool ($9.95)
This season, don’t get caught without this super-handy credit card multi tool from Vancouver based Avventura Outdoors. Its ultra-compact design means it fits in your wallet or pocket, and it can be used as a bottle opener, box opener and much more.
This is such a cool item for a men’s subscription box. What guy wouldn’t love to have this in his wallet?! It has a ruler, letter opener, box opener, screw driver, cell phone stand, can opener, peeler, and bottle opener. How awesome is that?!
Gentleman of the North Socks ($13.95)
To keep you covered from neck to toe, we asked our friends at Gentleman of the North to also recommend a dapper sock for the season. The grey color and red pine motif presents a versatile look – perfect for street, home or office wear.
Lastly we have a pair of quality socks which round out the box nicely. The tree design is festive and season-appropriate. They are comfy, high-quality and made by one of our favorite brands.
Extraordinary Man Box Review Winter 2019 – Final Thoughts
The Winter Extraordinary Man Box is definitely our favorite box to date. The value is great, the product selection is on point, and it features some of our favorite brands. It’s a great mixture of accessories, skincare, snacks and lifestyle products. The toque is definitely our favorite item in the box, with the chocolates, candle, multi-tool card and shower gel all coming in second. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for the Spring box!
