Our favourite fragrances for HIM for Spring 2018

Dior Savage fragrances for him for spring 2018

Hot on the heels of Mrs Gist’s post on fragrances for her that she’d like in her fragrance armoury for Spring, I thought it was only right that I shared mine (with a subtle hint that Father’s Day isn’t a million miles away).

I love a good fragrance; it fills me with confidence, I enjoy smelling great and it signs off my grooming routine. I do prefer a more higher-end fragrance than your run-of-the-mill mass market aftershaves, my signature scent coming from a variety of eau de parfums.

Some of my top fragrance picks include:

Dunhill London ICON

Dunhill Icon aftershave for him

I recently discovered Dunhill and it is simply fabulous. Masculine (grrrrrr, etc) notes of black pepper and cardamom, mixed with Middle Eastern wood and lavender make for a refreshing Spring / Summer scent that I simply love. It’s fairly exclusive too, which is always a plus if you’re looking to make a standout.

Dior Sauvage Eau de Parfum

Dior Savage fragrances for him for spring 2018

Spicy and juicy bergamot provides (yet another…) woody scent, with a hint of sweet vanilla. Suitable for an all-day scent, this fragrance offers a medium-lasting trail that is pleasant and not too overbearing. I like interchanging between Dunhill and this offering from Dior as my every day go-to.

Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum

Bleu de Chanel

The long-lasting Bleu de Chanel is a sophisticated fragrance, woody with an oriental amber twist. It’s perhaps more of an evening fragrance than something suitable for officewear as it can be a little heavy, but it’s certainly refreshing nonetheless.

Creed Aventus Eau de Parfum

The most expensive entry on my favourite fragrances at £150 a bottle, but by far the most exciting scent; contemporary and audacious, Creed Aventus smells GREAT. Really great. Totes great, in fact. It’s woody and bold tones give confidence, with a final flourish of a vanilla tone giving an air of sophistication. I’m always getting asked what I’m wearing and receiving compliments when I spray this; putting it simply, you need this in your life, gents.

So there we have it – suitable as an excellent Father’s Day gift (hint, hint) – or just as a personal treat, these aftershaves will leave you feeling fantastic and smelling great.
