What are they really? And why on earth do we need them when we already have the tastiest, easiest to peel fruit around, the clementine?

On occasion, we've had to buy the Clemenvillas because there was a lack of clementines. I was leery of the slightly chubbier relation of the clementine, with its tighter skin. They were tasty however, and the little sections came easily apart.

After much asking around, we finally found out from Madame at Chez Rafik that it is a combination of an orange and a clementine. Well, I would say that it is a tasty little creature, but again, why? The clementine is equal in pleasure to the taste, and again, easier to peel. Does it have a longer growing season? Does it ship better? Is it packed with more Vitamin C?

In conclusion, I recommend the clemenvilla as a tasty fruit, but it takes a back crate to the clementine.

I love everything about clementines. I would like a clementine-scented after shave balm.

They're like the French equivalent of Tangelos I guess?!? As long as they're still delish, who can complain!?!

It might be late, but I just discovered your blog.
WHy are they called Clemenvilla?
Because they come from the Catalan (spanish? valencian? - depends on your beliefs) city of Villa-real on the east cost of Spain, just north of Valencia.

Just my two cents of knowledge ;)

Aftershave cologne, more than just a good smell

To shave is not enough, in fact, you need to take some really good care of your skin, and that is precisely what I want you to consider from now on, because I believe that every man has got to look good, right now we are living in a time in which appearances are hugely important, and that is just why you need to look better than your best, and do not worry, it is something really obtainable, you might just need a little bit of guidance into it, and trust me, you will not only look better, you will feel better about yourself and people will let you know.

What I want you to implement, is some aftershave cologne to your everyday shaving routine, this is a great thing to do, since it can only bring great benefits, for example, a good aftershave cologne is very much used because it cleans your skin from impurities, so when you shave and cut your face you are not going to develop an infection and much less will you be developing such awful reactions as skin rashes after because of the shave. Another great feature of the aftershave cologne is that it has substances specifically made so that you can get a much softer and healthier skin, because as you might know, there is nothing but incredible results that you are going to be getting, so use this amazing implement, it can only better your shaving experience, not to mention that an aftershave cologne will always remain in an incredible scent that women also love to smell on their men.

Get with what is fashionable, and do yourself a huge favor, a aftershave cologne is something that you really don’t want to be missing, it is an incredible additament that will let you have a great feeling and that will also make you feel like you are looking great, and trust me, you will.
