10 Fresh Spring Aftershaves You Must Try

Hibernation is officially over! Spring has sprung and it’s now time to say goodbye to those cosy knit jumpers, scarves and big coats in favour of a lighter spring wardrobe.

Whilst many of us cycle through our wardrobe in seasons automatically, the matching fragrance is often forgotten about. If you have found that one perfect aftershave and are willing to stick with it through all seasons, we love your determination. But not all fragrances work well through different times of the year, so why not consider adding a fresh spring fragrance to your collection this year?

So why should you change your scent as soon as winter is over? After all, winter is the time to wear heavy, warming fragrances that warms the soul. But as the sun stays out longer every day and our bodies start soaking up those rays, we can use fragrances to give our nose a little spring boost as well.

Instead of heavier notes like woods, vanilla and spices, many spring scents will contain citruses (from bergamot to yuzu), herbs such as mint, rosemary and sage, and flowery top notes. Instead of weighing us down, these aftershaves are designed to lift you up before the summer comes.

We invite you to have a look through our selection of the best spring fragrances below.

Top 10 Spring Fragrances For Men

 

Bois De Yuzu by Karl Lagerfeld

Bois De Yuzu

This affordable, crowd-pleasing eau de toilette packs a punch. With citrus notes such as yuzu, bergamot, grapefruit and mandarin, ginger, rosemary and moss, this green-citrus fragrance is guaranteed to lift your spirits.

 

Eternity Cologne by Calvin Klein

CK Eternity

Of the many versions of Eternity, this is our favourite for spring. It is a cologne and will need to be applied generously, but you will be rewarded with the aromatic-spicy notes of juniper berries, ginger and cardamom, aldehydes and ambroxan. There are no citruses or fruits to be found, which makes it stand out from the crowd.

 

Amalfi Citrus by Dunhill

Amalfi Citrus

Amalfi Citrus is a scent of Dunhill’s Signature Collection, which is perhaps not as well known as some of their other lines. But don’t let that discourage you, Amalfi Citrus is (as the name suggests) heavy on citruses and combines them with uplifting green tea and rosemary and delicate florals such as neroli and jasmine. Who is ready for a trip to Italy?

 

Boss Bottled Tonic by Hugo Boss

Boss Bottled Tonic

Boss Bottled is another line with many versions, Boss Bottled Tonic has been added to the line in 2017. This is a fresh aftershave, perfect for everyday wear. You can find apple, citrus, ginger and spices before the fragrance settles on a woody base, making it a safe choice for anyone.

 

Gentleman Cologne by Givenchy

Gentleman

This one is for distinguished gentlemen, as it is not your typical cologne. Yes, it has citruses and woods, but Gentleman Cologne adds green petitgrain, flowery iris and musk to the mix. The result is a gorgeous, almost unisex-leaning fragrance, which is perfect as a spring scent.

 

L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake

L'Eau d'Issey

This aftershave is probably the most mainstream in this line-up, but that’s for good reasons. This fresh-aromatic citrus scent has established itself as a timeless, modern classic for men and it will give you an energising kick to start the day right.

 

H24 by Hermès

Hermes

This gem by Hermès is one like no other. The official notes are simple - clary sage, narcissus, palisander rosewood and sclarene. The result is an aromatic-floral fragrance with metallic notes, which stands out. As a little bonus, this will also make a perfect summer fragrance!

 

Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani

Acqua di Gio

This classic is the perfect choice for warm weather. It’s fresh, citrussy and aromatic with hints of marine and floral notes. It’s a classic and may not appeal to all generations, but we urge you to try it before you judge. After all, perfumes become classics because they are well-loved.

 

Loewe 7 Cobalt by Loewe

Loewe 7 Cobalt

Loewe has slowly established itself as a brand that reliably produces high-quality perfumes for men and women alike. Loewe 7 Cobalt is no exception, this well-blended perfume contains sage, pink pepper, cloves, black currant, incense and vetiver, which creates a unique scent profile. A little spicy, herbal and smoky, this is perfect for anyone looking to stand out.

 

Colonia Club by Acqua di Parma

Colonia Club

Acqua di Parma is another brand known for its high-quality products. Their Colonia Club is fresh and green, elegant yet refreshing. Like so many of their fragrances, this is heavy on citrus but it’s balanced out beautifully with mint, lavender, petitgrain and vetiver.
