Some days, the only thing that can make you feel like life is worth living is a day at the spa. (Actually, a 24-hour pizza-induced coma works too, at least for some of us.) Charles Scott can't help you with the latter, but for the former, you simply could not do better than to book an appointment. In fact, the editorial staff at Scene regularly lines up for the mani-pedi treatment after spending the day investigating police corruption and the like. Charles Scott's dynamite team does not mess around; they've got the skills — in nail services, facials, and the fine art of small talk — to make your visit relaxing beyond belief. And we can't help but relay the near-perfect heptameter of Charles Scott's spa-package branding: "Time to Spare," "Without a Care," "If You Dare," "Masculine Flair," "Relax and Repair," "Beyond Com (Pair)" and so on. Pure poetry. And gents, if you haven't picked up on your significant other's not-so-subtle hints yet, you'd best get in touch with Mr. Scott & Co. and book your lady a day of comfort and indulgences.
