So, if you’re looking for a cheap aftershave to wow your dad this Father’s Day, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve got plenty of cheap aftershave deals on fragrances that smell like a million bucks.
But first, let’s answer a couple of frequently asked questions about men’s fragrances:
Are all men’s fragrances the same?
The terms ‘aftershave’ and ‘cologne’ are often used to describe all types of men’s fragrance; it’s just become one of those things in the industry! However, not all men’s fragrances are the same. For example, what you may call an aftershave, may be an Eau de Toilette or an Eau de Parfum.
So, how can you tell the difference? The answer is in the level of concentrated perfume oil in the formula. When it comes to male fragrances, you have aftershave, Eau de Cologne, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum, and Parfum. The higher the perfume oil level present, the longer the scent will last on your skin.

How can I make my budget aftershave last longer?
Just because you’ve bought a good cheap aftershave doesn’t mean it should lack in staying power! To help your budget aftershave last as long as possible throughout the day, try these tips:
- Apply your fragrance as soon as you get out of the shower
- Layer an Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum on top of other complementing products, such as body wash or aftershave
- Spritz on your wrists or other pulse points (but don’t rub your wrists together!)
