7 MUST-HAVE SUMMER 2019 AFTERSHAVES FOR MEN
Gentlemen, we spend so much time deciding on our summer wardrobe but it's time we paid attention to the fragrances to match. From the British seaside break to a tropical getaway, there’s a fragrance for every occasion and an occasion for every fragrance. Summers arrived and it's time to inject some life into your fragrance collection. Here at MenswearStyle we're looking forward to the long summer nights and lazy days by the pool. During the summer months you want fragrances that are light, cooling and refreshing. When the temperature rises and the weather calls for a linen shirt, you want your men's aftershave to match, so look to notes such as citruses and white florals to scent your season. We've put together our favourite picks of summer fragrances with our friends at Notino, who have a huge array of brands in stock.
Bleu de Chanel by Chanel
The Swiss army knife of fragrances is a must have in any collection. For the summer months, go for the EDT concentration. Notes of grapefruit, lemon and mint are bright, refreshing and almost effervescent as it jumps off the skin. Incense and ginger add depth and intrigue which gives this fragrance it's versatility.
Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani
A long time best seller for a reason, the fragrance that kept a generation smelling fantastic is still going strong. Sea notes combined with the citrus combination of lime, lemon and bergamot makes this one perfect for a day at the beach. White musk and cedar create a smooth base that’ll last the whole day.
Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford
