Manly aftershaves, that make you go all tingly 🤪

DH wears TF Tuscan Leather for night time which I adore. He needs something new for day time. It needs to be strong as many aftershaves do not seem to smell on him. He’s just had a sample of Burberry Brit which was nice. What do your DH’s wear that you can’t stop sniffing?

Aramis. Not DH but I have a colleague I occasionally work with and I always say to him ‘you smell nice’. He told me last week it’s aramis.

Police something or other, it’s in a blue skull bottle. Only when it’s on DP though.

All of the Tom Fords; the original Black Orchid is still the best.

One of my colleagues smells amazing but i feel it would be a bit forward to ask what scent he's wearing.

Pacific Rabanne 1 million

Cool Water.

But it reminds me of my cunt of an ex ao kind of put me off it.

Penhaligons Opus 1870 here too. And Penhaligons Sartorial too - very strong and distinctive but lovely.

Chanel bleu and Chanel sycamore. So good.

Schmoochypoos Sun 03-Dec-17 13:47:00

D&G The One and JPG Le Male for me. Love these on DH

AndNoneForGretchenWieners Sun 03-Dec-17 13:48:36

Chanel Allure Sport Homme. I love it.

Schmoochypoos Sun 03-Dec-17 13:50:15

AndNone oh yes I love that too!

HouseworkIsAPain Sun 03-Dec-17 13:54:01

Any Tom Ford as PP said

Also Vera Wang men.

PlausibleSuit Sun 03-Dec-17 13:55:31

+1 for Givenchy Gentleman. Makes me go all unnecessary.

Also try: Guerlain Homme, Creed Original Vetiver or Green Irish Tweed, Bleu de Chanel or Dior Eau Sauvage (the original one, not the Johnny Depp one, which is called Sauvage and isn't nearly as good).

Ooh or Hermes Terre d'Hermes. Amazing.

BrevilleTron Sun 03-Dec-17 13:58:15

Got DP Terre's Hermes as we both sniffed our gay mate at work (I had the privilege of working next to said mate and told DP to give him a sniff!)


All give me the fanny gallops when DP wears them blush

mummarosie1 Sun 03-Dec-17 14:02:23

Pacco one million blush

WellTidy Sun 03-Dec-17 14:08:49

DH doesn't wear aftershave but I adore Acqua di Parma in the fig scent. Figueur or something like that. I like it for women too.

Orangebird69 Sun 03-Dec-17 14:09:11

L'eau D'issy Pour Homme. Chanel L'egoiste - original, not Platinum (which is horrid).
