Roberto Cavalli Just Cavalli Man Eau de Toilette Gift Set
RRP £40.00, now £20.00 (50% off)
This bold and provocative fragrance for men captures the spirit of Roberto Cavalli’s youthful fusion line Just Cavalli. Like the fashion it’s fun and sexy, with a playfulness that makes it stand out among this year’s more serious and refined fragrances for men. The fresh woody scent is quite bracing, so it’ll make a smooth transition into the spring months. This gift set includes the 75ml Eau de Toilette spray and the matching 75ml Shower Gel for longer lasting scent.

This gift set contains everything you need to get you started: the Anti-Irritation Shaving Gel, the Multi-Use Shower Gel and the Moisturizing Multi-Purpose Gel, all full-sized and wonderfully scented.
Etat Libre d’Orange La Fin Du Monde Eau de Parfum 100ml
RRP from £59.50, now from £47.50 (20% off)
Though it only launched at the beginning of November, this fragrance has left a huge impression. Cult fragrance house Etat Libre d’Orange’s La Fin du Monde is a unisex scent that is actually quite hard to categorise. Its blend of popcorn, black pepper and vetiver on a base of orris and cannon powder accord has been described by our fragrance expert Thomas as “an interesting little curiosity”, and it’s even attracted comparisons to Dior Homme and Serge Lutens’ Jeux de Peau. Read Thomas’ review here.
Ralph Lauren Polo Red Eau de Toilette
RRP from £30.00, now from £24.00 (20% off)
Ralph Lauren Polo Red joined the formidable Ralph Lauren Polo range earlier this year. Even if you’ve tried other scents in the collection, you should forget your preconceptions about this one… it’s the wild child of the family! Inspired by Ralph’s love of fast and beautiful cars, the fragrance is an adrenaline-pumping thrill ride of unusual notes, including zesty red grapefruit, saffron, saffron and coffee berry. Polo Red is a powerful fragrance that’s actually proved to be pretty cross-generational.
L’Occitane Pour Homme Cade Reinvigorating Shower Gel
RRP £13.00, now £10.40 (20% off)
If you’re looking to treat yourself to a little something, then this shower gel from L’Occitane is a fine place to start. L’Occitane are world renowned for their luxurious formulas, and this blend of organic juniper oil, quinquina extract, rosemary and sandalwood does a good job of rebalancing both skin and hair. The scent is essential oil-based, so it lasts for an impressive amount of time. There plenty of other shaving and grooming choices in the range, too – see them here.
Gucci Made to Measure Eau de Toilette
RRP from £49.00, now from £39.19 (20% off)
Gucci Made to Measure was one of the biggest men’s fragrance releases of 2013, and for very good reason. The suave woody scent is inspired by the sharp, masterful lines of a tailor-made suit, specifically those created by Gucci’s Made to Measure service. The result is a fragrance of supreme smoothness, blending refined French lavender, nutmeg and juniper with the hedonism of labdanum, patchouli and leather. It’s a winner.
Cartier Declaration Moisturising After Shave Emulsion
RRP from £35.50, now from £28.40 (20% off)
Why not try something different to an eau de toilette spray or an aftershave splash? This moisturising emulsion is fantastic for cooling and soothing the face and neck after shaving. The real trump card here, however, is its fragrance: the classic citrus, iris and leather blend of Cartier Declaration. Scent is incredibly sensuous when worn close to the skin, so while the fragrance projection of this emulsion isn’t as attention-grabbing as an eau de toilette, it’s just as wonderful for the one who you hold closest.
