Ten best aftershaves

Dolce & Gabbana
1. Dolce & Gabbana
The sweetness of vanilla, lavender and grapefruit are shot through by pepper in 'The One Gentleman', which is an unusual but elegant, fruity scent for an urbane fella.
Price: £39 for 50ml
Available nationwide
2. Jean-Paul Gaultier
'Le Male Terrible' comes in that bottle and smells of musky vanilla with an edge of vetiver. It's bright and perky, just like M. Gaultier himself.
Price: £39 for 75ml
Available nationwide
3. Prada
'Infusion d'Homme' is a pleasantly soapy but tangy fragrance, with a clean-feeling aroma that has a nostalgic edge of neroli and iris
Price: £35 for 50ml
4. Narciso Rodriguez
Carefully nuanced, Narciso's 'For Him' summons burnt-wood and floral notes in a sophisticated but not stuffy bouquet.
Price: £39.50 for 50ml
Available nationwide
5. Diptyque
'Eau Duelle' is technically a unisex fragrance, but its warm and buttery vanilla tones have a piquant, masculine edge
6. Chanel
'Bleu de Chanel', the latest offering from the French house, is an assertive and glamorous number, with vetiver and a dash of citrus to keep things light.
Price: £42 for 50ml

7. Byredo
Supercool Swedish perfumers Byredo were inspired by the Seventies when they created 'Green', with its notes of sage, honeysuckle and almond.
Price: £115 for 100ml

8. Davidoff
You can tell 'Champion' is for real men, not only because the bottle is a dumbbell, but also by the powerful bergamot scent. A traditional choice for the manly man.
Price: £36 for 50ml

9. Marc Jacobs
Brilliant bottle aside, 'Bang!' is a great modern fragrance, full of pepper and wood. It's not for everyone, but it's perfect for deep thinkers.
Price: £39 for 50ml
Available nationwide
10. Giorgio Armani
Acqua Di Gio is a stalwart scent in the fragrance canon thanks to its pure and aquatic aroma. Jasmine and persimmon create the marine notes, but cedar keeps things a bit beefy, too.
Price: £32 for 50ml
Available nationwide
