The Men's Aftershave Edit

The Men's Aftershave Edit

This one is just for the men, a corner dedicated to reviewing a small selection of the brands available in our range of discount fragrances for men. Whether you’re searching for a gift for a male acquaintance or you’re after something new for yourself, reviews can be a great place to start. These are a few of our current favourites.

Jimmy Choo - Man

A fresh, spicy and woody fragrance, this one was released in 2014 and was the first fragrance for men by high-end clothing designer Jimmy Choo.

With delicate notes of honeydew melon, pink pepper and pineapple combined with more robust aromas of lavender and patchouli, this subtle yet distinctive fragrance has been consistently popular since its release and although the initial blast of patchouli and lavender will soften, the melon and pineapple will blend with it and bring a softer scent for the rest of the day.

The bottle is a slick, clear glass offering, square with the name in silver on the front and a black and chrome topper.

Issey Miyake – L’Eau D’Issey pour Homme – Sport

Another fresh, woody scent from the same era, this one was created in 2012 and was the latest addition to Issey Miyake’s L’Eau D’Issey pour Homme range.

A deep and masculine scent, Issey Miyake for men blends grapefruit and nutmeg with leather, cedar, and vetiver to give it a more earthy feel after the fresh, citrus burst in the opening. Designed for everyday use, it’s a distinctive fragrance with a good reputation as one that will last all day, too. Issey Miyake Aftershave comes in a clear glass, thickly topped bottle, like its siblings, but with a dash of sporting blue across the front.

Prada – Luna Rossa Men’s

This is a bright and vibrant fragrance with fresh, citrus tones and was also released in 2012, just 6 years after their first fragrance for men was released.

With a base of floral and musk scents, the top notes of lavender and bitter orange make a grand entrance before settling in to leave a strong and distinctive fragrance in their wake. Inspired by sailing (and named after a ship and team which participates in the American Cup sailing competition, Red Moon), the bottle has a nautical air with an embossed metal top above clear glass, embellished with a sleek Prada logo.

No matter what the occasion is, have a sniff around and see what you like – even if you’re shopping for somebody else, you might just find a new favourite for yourself.
