Top notes of juicy pineapple, orange and Japanese yuzu perfectly combined with a heart of nutmeg, jasmine and rose and a base of precious woods and creamy amber. It’s a win, win, win from us!
7. L’Eau D’lssey Intense by Issey Miyake
If you’ve not heard of Issey Miyake before, let us catch you up! He’s affectionately known as the ‘father of Japanese fashion’ and has been a leading name in his industry for years. That’s some pretty strong credentials, which is probably why his 'L’eau D’lssey Intense' Eau de Toilette, which was released in the early 2000s, is still a firm fave among fragrance fans. Expect sweet, light, and sensual notes in L’eau D’lssy Intense which will have you hooked from the first spray.

Light, breezy, and care-free? Sound like someone you know? If so, ‘Light Blue’ by Dolce & Gabbana could be up their (or your) street! Inspired by the feelings you get when you escape to somewhere like the Mediterranean Sea! This brilliant scent is made up of juniper, zesty grapefruit, and spicy Sichuan pepper.
9. Joop! Homme by Joop!
Some things are destined to never go out of fashion, and we reckon 'JOOP! Homme' will be one of those things! Whether you're a devoted fan or you're just discovering its bold, statement making notes - we're sure it deserves pride of place in any guys aftershave collection.
