Issey Miyake

Born in Hiroshima just 7 years before the atomic bombing, Issey Miyake pursued a career in fashion, known for his experimental and technology-driven designs. Despite retiring from catwalk shows and collections, he still oversees the creative direction across his company.

Similar to most fashion designers, Miyake also has a line of successful perfumes, with the first launched in 1992. L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme followed in 1994, and still continues to be a best-seller 25 years later.

L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme is a fresh, timeless and masculine aftershave with the perfect balance of spicy and woody citrus notes. Using an array of unique notes together in an innovative way, this aftershave is created with yuzu, tarragon, bergamot, saffron and tobacco, to name only a few ingredients.

It’s long-lasting scent has made it a favourite, with the perfect day-to-night fragrance that can be worn no matter the occasion.

Paco Rabanne

Paco Rabanne is possibly one of the most established men’s aftershave brands, with confident and almost intoxicating scents that are well-recognised. The designer himself started in the jewellery business, with clients including Givenchy, Dior and Balenciaga. He eventually founded his own fashion house in 1966. 

By 1968, Paco Rabanne began working with perfumes and aftershaves too. Almost 40 years later, 1 Million by Paco Rabanne was released and became an instant hit. Inspired by the luxury and power of gold, the aftershave is addictive and exotic. Notes include grapefruit, blood mandarin, rose absolute, cinnamon and leather.

An ideal signature scent for your collection, 1 Million is long-lasting without being overpowering.

Hugo Boss

Hugo Boss is arguably one of the most well-known menswear brands in the industry. The German brand was founded back in 1924 and has certainly seen its share of controversy, but today it is a luxurious and sophisticated fashion label.

Hugo Boss aftershaves are an absolute essential for any collection, with a scent for every occasion housed in recognisable bottles. With a number of different fragrances to choose from, Boss Bottled is the standout favourite for the perfect addition to your collection.

Made with contemporary notes to create a classic aftershave, Boss Bottled was first released in 1998. Citrus notes are combined with cinnamon, geranium, sandalwood and amber for an aftershave that continues to unfold throughout the day.


Dior is one of the world’s most famous fashion houses, and was created in 1946. Now belonging to the world’s largest luxury group LVMH, Dior is responsible for incredible collections in fashion, beauty, jewellery, make up and fragrances.

Dior aftershaves are refined yet bold, with an edge that is difficult to replicate. Designed for both casual and formal wear, every collection should include a Dior aftershave. To add something a little more intense to your collection for a versatile choice of fragrances, Dior Sauvage is perfect.

The fragrance was launched in 2015; the brand’s first cologne in 10 years, and has become an instant classic. It has been created with an intense yet smooth scent, using natural ingredients in a fascinating combination. Notes include pepper, lavender, bergamot and patchouli, resulting in a juicy freshness with a woody trail.

Tom Ford

Tom Ford is known for his intriguing and sometimes dramatic creations, as well as dressing the world’s most famous fictional spy; James Bond. His collections often favour formal wear and evening attire, so it’s no wonder the range of Tom Ford aftershaves are edgy, unique and a little bit dark.
