8 Of The Best Mens Aftershaves For Winter

​Get ready for the big chill with a winter-friendly scent

Most Popular

Though a summer fragrance is important (nothing feels better
than spraying on a spot of Tom Ford Neroli Portofino following
a post-beach shower), a winter scent is a life essential. 

In the coming months, tans will fade, skin will dull and your body will be hidden beneath layers of wool, cashmere and tweed (we hope), so it's a requirement that you find a bold winter fragrance to give yourself an edge.

Here, we've selected the best new winter fragrances. From the soaring elegance of Cartier's L'Envol de Cartier to the off-key brilliance of Prada's new L'Homme, there's something for every man. 


L'Envol de Cartier by Cartier

Imbued with gaïac wood and vaporised musk, Cartier's new cologne is housed in a beautiful double layered glass bottle, where the inner "capsule" can be removed from the outer glass container and carried separately.

Black leather

Uomo Intense by Valentino

The mix of black leather, mandarin and tonka bean is sweet, deep and surprisingly fresh. Our tip is to apply sparingly for instant effect.

Gentlemen Only by Givenchy

This latest addition to Givenchy's Gentlemen Only stable features notes of saffron, nutmeg and cinnamon — what more could you want in the winter? Just be sure not to drink it. 

£71/100ml, givenchy.com


Man Intense by Jimmy Choo

Jimmy Choo's latest scent is one of the lightest of the bunch (despite the name). Soft lavender is punched up by melon and mandarin, meaning this is a good shout for the slightly warmer autumnal months.



L'Homme Prada by Prada

Containing Prada's classic notes of amber and iris, this fragrance is characteristically enigmatic. Bright, with the addition of geranium, the scent dries
down to wintry notes of cedar
and patchouli.

£70/100ml, prada.com


Icon Elite by Alfred Dunhill

So smartly packaged you'll want to keep it in your bathroom cabinet for ever, Alfred Dunhill's new scent is both simple and strong. Ebony dominates, with notes of cardamom and vetiver adding
a woody depth.

£77/100ml, dunhill.com

Russian leather

Dark Rebel Rider
by John Varvatos

Built around notes of Russian leather, Sumatran bark resin and bitter orange, this new fragrance, from rock's favourite designer, is as manly as you'd imagine.

£50/75ml, johnvarvatos.com


Uomo by Salvatore Ferragamo

Much like a really good whisky,
this fragrance is as complex as it is addictive. Notes of black pepper and cardamom soften down to masculine cashmere wood and sandalwood. 

£66/100ml, ferragamo.com
