Top 5 Aftershaves!

Quite recently I noticed that I had quite a little collection of aftershaves and obviously I was reaching for a certain few more than others. So I've decided to make a post on my top 5 to show a few of my favourites.

Although a fragrance can be a very personal thing I think it's important to have a little delve into trying something new once in a while, so here are my top 5 aftershaves that might give a few of you some ideas!

1) Yves Saint Laurent, La Nuit de L'Homme.
This is my most recent addition to my collection but definitely one of my favourites. Aftershaves that are normally classed as 'night time' fragrances tend to be a lot stronger and longer lasting, because of this I can put this aftershave on at the beginning of the day and still smell it on my clothes by the end. The scent is quite rich and spicy, but also has a slight sweet smell once it's been worn for a while. I managed to pick this up just after christmas in Boots as part of a set with an aftershave balm and shower gel. (£46 for 60ml)

2) Paco Rabanne, One Million.
I'll be pretty surprised if everyone hasn't seen / heard about this fragrence, it is definitely my most worn and theres a reason for it! This aftershave smells, well, just basically, amazing. I stick this on if I'm late and running to college or even if I'm going on a night out, It suits every occasion imaginable and never fails to get noticed. (£40 for 50ml)

3) Giorgio Armani, Acqua Di Gio.
Acqua Di Gio is definitely my second go-to aftershave, it's very light but long lasting. The easiest way of describing this scent basically a summers day mixed with citrus fruits, definitely one to grab if you're away on holiday or on those soon to be here British sunny mornings! 
A few squirts of this and you're good to go all day! (£48 for 50ml)

4) Gucci, Gucci.
'Masculine' is basically the only way to describe this fragrance, my only slight bug with it is that I don't find it lasts very long on me at all. If I put it on in the morning it's gone within a few hours and theres barely any trace of it. Despite this it's still made it into my top 5 because it really does smell amazing and as you might be able to tell by the photograph above, it's nearly all gone! (£44 for 50ml)

5) Chanel, Bleu De Chanel.
Luxurious, Masculine, Exciting and Addictive are the best words to describe this fragrence. Absolutely everything about this aftershave, packaging and all, it's just spot on. 
One of the best things about this aftershave is once it's applied you feel like you've given yourself a real treat with not only how it smells but the solid glass bottle and magnetic lid, and for the price it just gets even better. (£45 for 50ml)

So there you go, my top 5 aftershaves! I hope it's given you all something to think or even try next time you're after something new to try.
