Gifts For Guys!
Shopping for guys is always a hard task - in my opinion anyway - and we just simply cannot get them another set of socks for yet another year. Whether its your dad, brother, uncle, friend, boyfriend, secret santa or you just want some inspiration for yourself then you have come to the right place. For gifts starting at £12.50 and going all the way up to £145 with multi sets and individual fragrances we have got it all covered so lets begin..
Just before we start I would like to once again mention that all of our fragrances are unisex and are encouraged to be worn by anyone! If you like a floral note don't be afraid to try it. Fragrance is all about what you like not about specific genders! The following products mentioned are simply a guide as to what goes down best with guys..
Bestsellers for him
Our bestsellers for him section on our website is a great place to start. Featuring some of our best selling fragrances with the guys in all the different sizes available you can't go wrong. Whether the guy you're shopping for likes a woody fragrance, spiced notes or likes to stick to light and fresh scents they are all featured here. Ranging from £145 down to £25 you're bound to find a product that fits within your budget here!

Gifts & sets
Our multi boxes are also a great way to get your hands on our product without commiting to a full sized bottle. They allow you to try the brand and figure out what you like before purchasing a larger bottle later on. From sample sets which include 5 x 2ml fragrances of your choice to a Fragrance wardrobe full with 10 x 10mls which you can share with your partner or give as a gift to a couple we've got you covered! The gifts and sets we recommend for guys (or for splitting up!!) are:
- Fragrance Wardrobe - Oud Alif, Dandelion Fig, English Cherry Blossom, Blackberry Woods, Amber Rose, Black Tulip, Atropa Belladonna, Salt Caramel, Blood Oranges, Tallulah's Camelia

On the 'Lite' side of life
Our Lites range is a great place to look if you are looking for a cheaper option or if you simply want an easy on the go fragrance to introduce your guy to the brand. At only £12.50 for a 10ml bottle our Lites range features seven different fragrances in an Eau de Toilette concentrate. If you don't know what that means it is simply that the concentrate isn't as heavy as our Eau de Parfum fragrances. Don't be fooled though, these fragrances still make an impact and some can even be smelt still the next day! Perfect for teens who you want to introduce to the world of fragrance or just as a handy travel fragrance they are an essential oil blend in an everyday concentration.
Out of our seven Lite fragrances typically men would stick to the following three:
- Mood For Oud - An intense mix of limes, woods and cocoa bean.
- Voulez Vous - An irresistible mix of flowers, vanilla and espresso.
- Mandarine - Mandarine is a clean citrus mix of fresh mandarin and pomelo.

Where to start with Eau de Parfum
With so many fragrances to choose from looking at the list itself can get a bit daunting. We have found that typically the following list of fragrances are used more with guys than some of our other fragrances. Can't say I know many guys that smell like sparkling White Peaches but if you do please send them my way! Our Eau de Parfum fragrances come in three different sizes however not every fragrance comes in all three so you will have to check each one if there is a particular fragrance you are interested in. Here are the scents we recommend for gents..
- Blood Oranges - refreshingly zesty orange fragrance underpinned with rich and sensual blend of musk, woods and smoky leather.
- Sicilian Limes - Bold and mouth-droolingly tangy, with a happy-hour hit of a salty margarita, rosemary and moss.
- Blackberry Woods - Glossy berry juice with punk-sharp citrus.
- Framboise Noire - Punch-drunk black raspberry and forest berries deepen with the heart of black wood. This wine-like fragrance is smooth and elegant like textures of velvet and cashmere.
- Blueberry Musk - Sensual musk, blueberry & orange blossom fused with magnolia and silky cashmere.
- Watermelons - Body-drenching watermelon freshness with a hose-full of green mandarin and cut grass.
- Salt Caramel - Spoon drippingly glossy caramel. Caribbean Tonka bean and soft sandalwood meld into deliciously frothy sea salt.
- Black Tulip - Oriental plum flirts with creamy white chocolate and wood. Contrasts of fresh cyclamen with sensual undertones.
- Atropa Belladonna - Cassis berries and jasmine dance with layers of depth from patchouli and vanilla.
Similarly to our Eau de Parfum fragrances our concentrates also come in 100ml or 10ml sizes. The prices for these bottles range from £25 to £85. A more concentrated fragrance simply means that it is stronger, the fragrance is less dialuted and therefore you need less fragrance to make an impact. Our concentrate fragrances mostly consists of our wood fragrances but also features Amber Oud Ahad which is in our spice range. We would recommend all of our concentrate fragrances for men, here are the scents you can get..
- Kings Wood - Fresh pineapple with the natural aroma of fearn leaves. Backed with fine leather and English oak.
- Oud Alif - The finest oud agarwood spiked with chocolat noir, saffron and dark patchouli.
- Amber Oud Ahad - Richly opulent amber with rare oud. Kissed with elegant iris and red rose.
- Blacks Club Leather - Rich with the scent of English leather, fire wood and a smooth brandy.

Extract of Parfum
Our Extract of Parfum fragrances are the highest concentrate you can get your hands on from us. At £145 a bottle they certainly leave an impression when you wear them. Even through a mask. These unique fragrances are highly concentrated and intensely captivating. The two fragrances we most recommend for men are...
- Oud Alif - The finest oud agarwood spiked with chocolat noir, saffron and dark patchouli. A sensual and confident extract of parfum. Smoky, hypnotic and impossible to ignore.
- Parfum Nashwa - Rich notes of cacao noir and coconut melt over dark oud wood and musk to create an enduring fascination.
Home and Body
Now we cant forget the guys do also need to shower.. shocking I know. While shower gels are typically a bit of a 'I didn't know what to get you' present to recieve they are a great why to introduce someone to the brand and well are also generally just needed! Coming in some of the scents we previously mentioned our home and body products can be used as hand wash and lotion or body wash and lotion. We also have hand cremes - very important after all the hand washing we are all doing on a daily basis nowadays - as well as hand sanitiser (again, very important!) and candles.
