A good aftershave is the secret to all success. Okay, maybe not, but it deffo helps. If you’re after a new fragrance but don’t know where to start, we’re here to help. We’ve got everything from classic to ground-breaking.
1. Sauvage, 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, Paco Rabanne
Mr Rabanne once said, ‘’In all civilisations gold has always managed to seduce people,”. He was deffo 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 (who isn’t), this is the fragrance for you.
3. Black Orchid, Tom Ford
Tom Ford is a living legend. 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 yet another timeless fragrance by Tom Ford. If you’re looking for unapologetic perfection, Black Orchid is for you.
4. Joop! Homme
If everyone was the same, life would be b-o-r-i-n-g. Nothing says fashion quite like individuality, which is why Joop! Homme is such a trendsetter. Unleash your inner masculine sensuality with a bold and original aftershave featuring notes of amber, orange, and cinnamon.
5. Man, 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 (don’t we all), a Jimmy Choo fragrance is an essential. Notes of patchouli, suede, pink pepper, and honeydew melon create the super fresh scent.
6. Le Male, Jean Paul Gaultier
Would it even be a top 10 aftershave list if we didn’t include Le Male? 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, Dolce & Gabanna
Light blue has been mega popular since in all forms 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. Cool water, Davidoff
If you’re cool and like water, this is for you. Just kidding (although, you probably are cool and drink water…). Anyway, coolness and hydration aside, if you’re looking for a contemporary and energising fragrance, Cool water might be the one for you. Amber, lavender, and peppermint are the notes behind this fresh and powerful scent.
9. Invictus, 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 can bring you back to the top in seconds. Boom.
10. Stronger with you, Armani
This Armani scent is a new kid on the block, 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.
