Finding an aftershave that works for you can fill you with confidence, put a spring in your step and finish off any look - no matter if its night or day. If you're in the market for a new fragrance, or want to buy one as a gift, then we're here to help you pick a winner with our top 10 men's aftershave. We've got everything from true classic scents to ground breaking aromas - take a look!
1. Sauvage by Dior
A fresh and bold scent by Dior, Sauvage is modelled on the timeless gentlemen. If you’re looking for a scent that will stand the test of time, look no further. Featuring notes of amber and citrus, Sauvage is designed to outlast both time and fashion. Who knew it was possible to be both traditional and futuristic?! Dior did, that’s who.
2. 1 million by Paco Rabanne
Mr Rabanne once said, ‘’In all civilisations gold has always managed to seduce people,”. He was absolutely right when it comes to 1 Million. If the iconic gold bottle isn’t enough, the scent screams luxury. If you’re a fan of the finer things in life, then this is the fragrance for you.
3. Black Orchid by Tom Ford
Tom Ford is considered a living legend amongst the fashion elite. He's the man who looked at his son’s dinosaur shoes and said, “They’re tacky,” (ouch). He doesn’t hold back, and that’s exactly why we trust him. Amber, sandalwood, mandarin, and jasmine are the notes behind Black Orchid, yet another timeless fragrance by Tom Ford. If you’re looking for unapologetic perfection, then this scent is for you.
4. Explorer by Montblanc
Guys, do you fancy yourself a bit of an adventurer? If Bear Gyrlls has nothing on you, then the standout Explorer by Montblanc is the one for you! To be fair, this is perfectly suited to anyone who is a fan of the aromas found in the great outdoors - think fresh green bergamot, woody patchouli and intoxicating leather. A new challenge awaits, will you be taking Explorer with you?!
5. Man by Jimmy Choo
He may be known for shoes, but his perfumes are the real deal. If you love a bit of modern glamour in your life then Man by Jimmy Choo fragrance is an essential for you. Notes of patchouli, suede, pink pepper, and honeydew melon create the super fresh scent.
6. Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier
Would it even be a top 10 aftershave list if we didn’t include Le Male by J.P Gaultier? When it was released in 1995, the notes of tonka bean, vanilla, lavender, and mint won over the world. Not only is this fragrance totally amazing, but it changed masculine scents forever. If you’re looking for something as iconic as you, you know what to do.
7. Light Blue Pour Homme by Dolce & Gabanna
Light Blue Pour Homme by D&G has been been the definition of popular since it was released in 2007. We’re talking fragrances, shower gels, and body lotions. So obviously, the aftershave is just as good. With a refreshing and elegant scent compromised of notes of pepper, juniper, and citrus, this is a guaranteed winner.
8. BOSS Infinite by Hugo Boss
We're firm believers that no scent collection should be without one (or all) of the fragrances to come from Hugo Boss! If light and refreshing is your thing, then BOSS Infinite is one you're going to want to get your hands on! Featuring fresh and sparkling top notes with a hint of spice, it blends beautifully into a smooth, warming and overall masculine creation.
9. Invictus by Paco Rabanne
If all you (wanna) do is win, win, win, why don’t you go for a fragrance that is literally victory in a bottle? Whether you slept through your alarm, missed the bus, or messed up your presentation, chill out! Invictus by Paco Rabanne can bring you back to the top in seconds.
10. Stronger with you by Armani
Stronger With You may be one of the newest scents on our top 10, but that doesn’t mean it should be ruled out. If the notes of chestnut, vanilla, cardamom, and pink pepper aren’t enough to convince you – we don’t know what will.
