If you’re looking for your new signature scent, or maybe you’re desperate to find the perfect gift for the man in your life then we’re ready to help!
There’s something super sexy about a man who smells amazing and fragrance is the discreet accessory every man needs.
So, we’ve taken the hard work out of finding the right aftershave for you with some of favourite men’s fragrances available right now!
But first let’s start with the basics…
What’s the difference between aftershave, Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum?
Many people often use the terms randomly, but they do actually refer to different things. Aftershave contains less perfume oil and typically contains soothing ingredients like aloe vera or camomile. The low oil concentration is perfect for applying post shave. The scent tends to be fresher and lasts for around 3 hours.
An Eau de toilette contains more perfume oil than aftershave. The higher concentration means if you apply it post shave, it might sting a little! An Eau de toilette again tend to be very fresh, more of an everyday scent. They will probably last around 6 to 8 hours.
If you’re looking for something a little bit stronger then reach for an Eau de parfum. Eau de parfum fragrances contain the highest concentration of perfume oil, usually around 8 to 15 percent. They tend to be spicier, richer scents that will last much longer.
