Top 5 Scents for Him

1)      Diesel Only The Brave
*Base Notes: Amber, Leather and Ceaderwood
*Top Notes: Lemon, Mandarin and Coriander
*Heart notes: Labdanum heart, violet leaves and rosemary.

Overall: This has a strong feel to it and has the woody and oriental scent to it. If you cannot tell, I like those scents but I think they are great on a man. It’s not to bad a price, but it is heading to the top end of the prices in places like Superdurg.  

This can be purchased alone in the 35ml size at £29.99 link, and the 50ml size at £38.50 link. If you are considering getting this as a gift, or in the 50ml size it would definitely be worth picking up the gift set which is £38.50 and you get the 50ml EDT and a 200ml Shower Gel in the same scent as the EDT, link.  

2)      One Million
*Base Notes: Leather and Amber
*Top Notes: Fresh Fruit, Blood Mandarin and Peppermint
*Heart notes: Masculine Flowers, Rose and Musk

Overall: This scent is woody and oriental.  Specialists say that the scent is daring, irresistible and seductive. It’s at the higher end of drugstore perfume prices, but it’s worth it.

You can purchase this in two sizes in places like Superdrug  and that is 50ml (£36.50, link) and 100ml (£49.99, link). As with the Only The Brave, you can get this in a gift set that is exactly the same price as the 50ml spray EDT and you get the 50ml EDT as well as a shower gel, link

3)      Quorum
*Base Notes: Amber, Musk & Leather
*Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon & Cumin
*Heart notes: Juniper, Jasmine and Pine.

Overall: This is my little unconventional pick of them all because not many people know about it. It's pretty uncommon on the shelves of places like Boots and Superdurg and I only rarely see it on the shelves of Savers. I usually head online to purchase this of my dad. It's a beautiful scent that is described as 'masculine' and has an overall woody scent. It's quite a nice spicy, warm scent if you like that. 

I found this on Amazon and the best prices I found were as follows. You can get the 100 EDT for £10.40, link. They also do an aftershave version of this in two sizes which are £9.25, link, for 100ml, or £6.07, link, for the 50ml. The best gift set I found was one that contained the 100ml aftershave and the 100ml EDT for only £15.99, link

3)      CK One
*Base Notes: Musk
*Top Notes: Bergamot
*Heart notes: Green Tea

Overall: This is a citrus scent, which is what makes it a unisex scent; at least it does to me. It defiantly is unisex though, and I know men and women who wear this. It’s a fresh scent that leaves you feeling refreshed. It’s defiantly iconic and it’s been gaping strong since 1994.

You can get these is a range of different sizes but as far as I know you can only get EDT, rather than EDP or aftershave. All of the ones that I have seen come in a spray bottle too. For the 100ml you can get it at £29.99, link. The 50ml EDT spray is £22.50, link. The gift set is a great buy even if you are buying this for yourself because it's the same price as the 50ml EDT and you get the EDT as well as a 100ml shower gel, link

2)      Joop Homme or Joop Homme Wild
Joop Homme
*Base Notes: Amber
*Top Notes: Orange Blossom
*Heart notes: Cinnamon

Overall: This is also a woody and oriental scent, and the specialist say that it has a sensual masculine feel, and that it’s slight provocative. The adverts for this defiantly say that about it the scent. It’s a great bottle and a great price.

You can get this in a range of sizes and you can choose between the aftershave or a EDT (a slightly longer lasting scent). The 75ml aftershave is cheaper than the EDT at £27.50 a bottle, link. The EDT in the same size, 75ml, is £38.50, link, but it does last longer and I prefer this one. If you want a gift set, you can get the 75ml aftershave as well as a shower gel for the same price as the stand alone 75ml aftershave27.50, link). 

Joop Homme Wild
*Base Notes:Woody Blond Tobacco
*Top Notes: Pink Pepper
*Heart notes: Absolute Rum

Overall: This is oriental scent much like the original but it does differ from the original quite a lot. It has a sexy feel to it and I find the overall scent really appealing. It’s a great bottle much like the original and the price is just as great.

These comes in sizes very similar to the original Joop. The aftershave in 75ml is only £26.99, link. The 75ml EDT is £37.99, link, and the 30ml EDT is £20.99, link. If you want the gift set you can get the 75ml EDT and a shower gel for the price of the 75ml EDT alone, at £37.99 link
