Three Of The Best New Men’s Fragrances For Summer

Male using aftershave

All set for your summer holidays with new, fresh clothing? Well, doing summer right doesn’t just end at the tees you pack for your getaway, but how else you keep fresh when the heat is on.

Fragrances are an all important part of your summer grooming routine to make sure you’re always on point for any situation that comes your way. Fragrance brands know that summer deserves something special, which is why so many of them release special, limited edition summer versions of the best-selling fragrances.

Heat intensifies scents, so you’ll find summer fragrances are often lighter, less intense focussing on citrus notes more, so don’t discount a summer fragrance as just a marketing ploy to get you to buy more aftershave. We’ve picked a handful of our favourite new releases for this year.

L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme Summer 2016

A men’s fragrance classic already, yet this summery offering is the perfectly zingy and light scent for a summer perfume. With lots of fruity notes, its one for boys who like to smell good enough to eat.

Tom Ford Costa Azzura

For those less worried about budget, Tom Ford’s fragrances are always a safe, yet strong choice. His summer launch for this year, Costa Azzura, opts for less obviously summery notes, with rich wood scents making up the bulk of this perfume, with a lightness of salt to give it a beachside edge.

John Varvatos Artisan Blu

This is a brand with a growing following in menswear, let alone fragrance, and it acts as the perfect middle ground of the previous picks. Light and fruity at the top, while the base notes offer something a bit woodier.
