So, we're sure you'll agree it’s pretty important to find one that you can reach for everyday! If you're looking for a new fragrance, or you want to buy one as a gift, check out the top 10 aftershaves we can't recommend enough at the moment.
1. HUGO Just Different for Him
Fragrances have all sorts of abilities. They can boost your confidence, trigger your memories, and of course, complete an outfit. However, Just Different for Him by Hugo is all about stimulating your senses, giving you that boost your need in the morning to feel revived, invigorated, and ready to take on the day! Vibrant freesia and coriander will lift your spirits, while aromatic patchouli will awaken your mind. It’s fresh, it’s masculine, it’s a must-have for your scent wardrobe!
2. 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.
3. Stronger with You Absolutely by Armani
No top 10 men’s aftershave countdown would be complete without an appearance (or two) from the perfume powerhouse that is Armani. Stronger with You Absolute builds upon the iconic original flavour buts amps up the intensity and power with a seductive smokey intenseness and additive new rum accord. This is one suave scent that’ll delight as a gift and turn heads on anyone who wears it!
4. Invictus by Paco Rabanne
This gloriously fresh, woody citrus scent is ideal for anyone who loves being in the limelight. In just a few spritzes, Paco Rabanne Invictus wastes no time in announcing itself – a sharp burst of grapefruit is combined with a fresh aquatic accord, together with warm notes of Guaiac wood and smoky patchouli. If you don’t feel like wearing super heavy, aromatic scents, this is a great alternative –and a perfect post-sports scent to keep in your gym bag!
5. Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier
If you feel like channelling some ‘old school’ French allure, then cast your eyes upon Jean Paul Gaultier’s classic Le Male. Combining two of the classic notes in men’s fragrance (lavender and vanilla) but in a totally original and exciting way, this warm and enveloping concoction will prove popular with anyone who wears it (not to mention passers-by!). Plus, if you didn’t have enough reasons to make this your new signature scent, Gautier has added some extra cheeky panache with an iconic sailor-shaped bottle! Ahoy there, Monsieur!
6. Boss Bottled Night by Hugo Boss
If you’re looking for a male fragrance to take you from day ‘til night, then this is the one for you! A confident blend of mild sweetness with warmth, it’s utterly outstanding and stands its ground against the incredibly popular Boss Bottled original. An incredibly masculine composition, it features aromatic notes of lavender and bitter birch tree in the top, an intense heart of African violet, and a soothing base of musk and woods.
7. Dylan Blue by Versace
This popular concoction is what’s known as a fougère, a classic construction in men’s fragrance, with lavender, oakmoss and tonka bean. Dylan Blue provides a modern spin on the genre, with enough character of its own to make it stand out and then some! The sharp top notes of grapefruit contrast nicely with the woody notes in the base. (Plus its staying power is second to none!) Whether you're a diehard Versace fan or you're just discovering its many addictive scents - we're sure this will become a staple in your fragrance wardrobe.
8. 1 Million by Paco Rabanne
‘1 Million’ is one of those fragrances which gets people asking, ‘what are you wearing?’ (in a good way, of course). 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!
9. Emporio Armani Stronger with You Intensely
Some fragrances are designed to make an impact, and boy does Stronger with You Intensely by Emporio Armani tick that box with confidence! It smells good enough to eat with a creamy, sweet blend of gourmand deliciousness, and if that wasn’t good enough, the longevity is seriously impressive! Perfect as a gift, as impressive as the original, and a true head-turner - what’s not to love!?
10. Eros Flame by Versace
When it comes to scents with a story and staying power, Versace’s Eros Flame has everything going for it! With sprightly top notes of Italian lemon, tangerine and orange, together with sharp Madagascan black pepper, with smoky undertones of patchouli and vetiver, you’re not going to forget this one in a hurry!
