Luxury Grooming: This holiday season offer the discerning man in your life the ultimate luxury grooming experience - the Hommage Shanghai Shave Set. Designed for the man who appreciates contemporary luxury and a daily recharge before he starts his day, the set is finished in a rich Chinese red and the razor and brush add an intriguing design accent to any bathroom décor.

"We started this line with the intent to create a new space in the market," said Tom Wilscam, chief executive officer and co-founder of the Hommage line with famous design-guru Wolfgang Joensson. "There are a lot of products out there but not in the luxury market. We looked at the new trends of luxury around design and focused on a contemporary design."

The German-designed Shanghai shave set features a magnetic technology to secure the brush, fitted with Grade A silvertip badger hair, and the precisely weighted razor, to the durable chrome stationary base. The brush suspends from the underside of the pedestal arm for a perfectly balanced effect, while the razor handle rests securely, aligned to the hand-polished chrome stand, on the opposing end.

"We target luxury hotels, which is 75 percent of our business, including spas" Wilscam said. "We offer a variety of programs and services for hotels and spas such as the Hommage butler where guests may receive treatments in their room. There is a portable barber chair with products so facials and massages can be performed in-room."

With the Hommage Shanghai shave set, men can truly rely on cutting-edge design, modern engineering, and exquisite craftsmanship that lasts throughout the years and everyday use, to recharge them with a smooth, effortless shave.

"The barber concept is specific for luxury hotels," he said. "We tailor make treatments for our clientele and customize treatments for spas from a shave and a facial to a four hands massage. I am not a firm believer that people like to go to the spa to get pampered but because they want to look their best. It's a treatment that helps you stay looking younger."

To complement the shave set for the ultimate Hommage experience, the Hommage ShaveCare collection, FaceCare collection and men's shaving and facial services are available throughout hotels and spas as the Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Ritz-Carlton, and Trump International Hotels.

"Wolfgang's background is he was born in South Africa and lived in Paris so he has a strong sense of art and contemporary design," he said. "I knew when I found him the direction we would go with the product. Today, Hommage can be found in all the luxury hotels as well as upscale shops such as Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys and Louis Boston. Globally, we are in Stockholm, France, Tokyo, Sweden, Hong Kong and Bangkok with 200 locations worldwide in 14 countries."
