Scent of a man
Something' in the air and it's the new scent of a man as marketers seem to be on a mission to bathe him in scents of his favorite food and beverages. Try not to ingest:
Burger King Corp. has come up with FLAME by BK, a new body spray said to "feature the scent of seduction with the hint of flame-broiled meat." It's available online at http://www.firemeetsdesire.com, for $3.99.
Lush, at Ala Moana and Royal Hawaiian centers, is offering Cynthia Sylvia Stout (beer) shampoo ($17.95), made from a recipe including organic Irish stout and lemons, as well as Gold Frankincense & Beer Shower Jelly ($25 per pound), with the scent of cinnamon, black pepper, clove, mandarin juice and orange oil to stimulate circulation and the senses.
ZIRH has introduced a Cocktail Bar Collection with the scent of Cucumber Martini, Sake Bomb, Hurricane, Screwdriver and Long Island Iced Tea - inspired by popular drinks so men can drink in the scents of citrus, cucumber, lemongrass, passionfruit and lychee while detoxifying and exfoliating. The best thing is the scents may also help rid you of any holiday party hangover. The 5.3-ounce bars are $15 each or $60 for all five bars at http://www.zirh.com.
OluKai benefit to help lifeguards
OluKai Footwear will be introducing its 'Ohana benefit and products at Nordstrom Ala Moana's first-floor men's shoes department, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. There will be complimentary pupus from noon to 2 p.m., and an OluKai gift with purchase of OluKai 'Ohana slippers.

Holiday events rerun on 'Olelo TV
So many holiday events, so little time.
If you can't get to many of the community events of the season, you can still share in the spirit, via your television. 'Olelo Community Television is broadcasting coverage of the Honolulu City Lights event and the Kaneohe Christmas Parade beginning this weekend.
The City Lights tree-lighting, parade and entertainment air at 10:30 a.m. Saturday on Channel 52. The parade airs at 11 p.m. Monday. Both broadcasts repeat through Jan. 1 on Channels 52 and 49.
