Guys, do you like to start each day with a cheeky spray? If so, we think you’ll find something in our edit of the best aftershaves to inspire you to upgrade your everyday. From signature classics to brand new releases, we’ve whittled down the options to bring to you the top 10 hall of fame-worthy fragrances.
Hugo Boss, Unlimited
Whether or not you’re a morning person, this is THE fragrance to give a man that extra boost to kick-start the day. ‘Unlimited’ by Hugo Boss balances the refreshing scents of mint, citrus and fruity notes with more masculine smells like sandalwood and labdanum. Subtle but not silent, you honestly can’t go wrong with this classic.
Get ready for summer with Lacoste’s new trademark fragrance. As part of the signature ‘Blanc Edition’, it’s clean, pure and sophisticated – just like their classic white polo. Its combination of warm, floral and woody scents keeps anyone smelling fresh all summer long.
Versace, The Dreamer
Made for a man who’s a bit of a romantic, ‘The Dreamer’ is sweet yet unmistakably macho. As one of Versace’s best-sellers since its debut in 1996, it’s a guaranteed way to win brownie points with a “close” friend.
Emporio Armani, Diamonds
This hits the nail on the head when it comes to smelling fresh in those close-encounters. Strong but not overpowering, ‘Diamonds’ adds an extra layer of confidence to any man. Who wouldn’t want that?
Now this is a real throwback. A male member of your family probably owned a bottle of ‘Joop! Homme’ in the late 80s. The good news is, it’s still in. A spray from this daring bottle of aftershave is a one-way ticket to sensuality city (not to mention – it’s also light on the wallet). ‘Homme’ finds a nice balance between soothing oriental fragrances, like mandarin and jasmine, and powerful woody notes.
Paco Rabanne, 1 Million
‘1 million’ is one of those fragrances which gets people asking ‘what are you wearing?’ (in a good way). It’s the scent that’s been driving girls wild ever since its launch, and is showing no signs of slowing down on the popularity front. It’s a sure-fire winner!
In our opinion, this little gem couldn’t have been given a better name. And just like the Greek god ‘Eros’, son of the goddess of love, it’s strong and irresistibly sweet. The scents that come out of the bottle include crowd-favourites like vanilla, cedar and various citrusy notes. A classy choice for any man.
Paco Rabanne, Invictus
We don’t think there’s anything wrong with a flashy bottle, and this doesn’t disappoint. Neither does the smell, with its seaside and fruity notes. Beach holiday anyone?
Simple yet effective, this neat little aftershave from Lacoste leaves nothing to chance when it comes to boosting a man’s confidence. A must for active, sporty and ‘head-in-the-game’ types.
Issey Miyake, L’Eau d’Issey
One of the more complex smelling aftershaves. L’Eau d’Issey nails that aquatic, woody and musky blend. When you get a hit of this, you’ll be thinking flip flops and sandals. Perfect for a summer getaway.
