Christmas Gift Guide | Mens Fragrances

Hey beaut's!

It just wouldn't be Christmas if you didn't buy a fragrance for someone would it...  Sometimes Christmas shopping for men can be difficult but the one thing that's sure to be a winner every time is an aftershave, I mean everyone loves to smell nice, right??? So today I've got a selection of gorgeous smelling aftershaves that are sure to be a hit whether your buying for a family member, a loved one or even a friend.
BOSS The Scent* 100ml RRP £64.00
Firstly we have BOSS The Scent by Hugo Boss which is Boss' latest release for men and comes housed in silver cage like bottle which contains amber coloured aftershave inside. As for the scent itself, its light and fruity, but still warm and strong at the same time. After testing this out on my boyfriend I think its quite a versatile scent meaning its fresh enough to wear through the day, but also bold enough to splash on before an evening out too. Personally I think this is more of a 'Dad' scent and really reminds me of a scent my dad used to wear, theres something about the spicy ginger and leather accords that make this scent more suited to the older generation I think, so if your looking for the perfect scent for your Dad or Grandad this Christmas I'd highly recommend BOSS The Scent.

Top Notes: Ginger
Heart Notes: Maninka Fruit
Base Notes: Leather Accords

James Bond SEVEN* 30ml £21.95
Secondly we have SEVEN from 007 fragrances, this will go down well with any James Bond  lover I'm sure. The aftershave itself has a very powerful, strong, spicy scent to it with a slight hint of citrus sweetness in their too, so if the man in your life likes a nice woody, spicy scent that has strong lasting power this could be the one for him not to mention it's perfect for this time of the year. The packaging of the SEVEN aftershave is rather cool, the bottle itself is black and has a sharp-edged profile which offers an additional diagonal contour to create the shape of the number seven,  you see what they did there.

Top Notes - Tangerine, Bergamot and Apple.
Heart Notes - Cinnamon, Saffron and White Pepper .
Base Notes - Smooth Amber, Vanilla, Musk and Caramel .

Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc* 100ml RRP £47.00
Like all the Lacoste L.12.12 fragrances, Blanc is inspired by the Lacoste iconic polo shirt, this range acts as a tribute to the founder Rene Lacoste himself, its said that if you team the coloured fragrance with the same coloured polo shirt it will make the most out of the fragrance and intensify it, which I think is a rather cool/quirky fact!!! I can only describe Lacoste Blanc as being a very clean, fresh, sweet fragrance and perfect for the younger generation, to me this is not a mature scent at all so maybe not one for your Dad or Grandad but more for your Brother or Boyfriend. After testing Blanc out on my boyfriend, its clear to see or should I say smell (he he) that Blanc is very long lasting and lingers all day without being strong or overpowering at all. The packaging of Blanc is very simple and comes in a white glass bottle that is completely opaque and has Lacoste's trademark embroidery crocodile on the front of the bottle which I think is a really nice touch, it would certainly sit nicely on any mans bedside table.

Top Notes - Grapefruit, Cardamom, Rosemary, Cedar Leaves.
Heart Notes - Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang.
Base Notes - Leather Notes, Cedar.
