You don’t have to be a guy – or even be buying for a guy – to embrace the masculine vibes – we’ve been stealing their fashion for years. Plus we all know that some of the best (and sexiest) fragrances live in the mens section anyway, so in the name of equality, here is our edit of the best masculine products for a dude in your life (that will probably end up in your handbag, let’s be honest).
Demeter Fragrance Library Dirt Cologne Spray, $29.95: An iconic Demeter scent that’s earthy, grounded and fresh like a day spent in a garden (or the fields around the perfumer’s family farm in Pennsylvania as the story goes). Even if you’re not the outdoorsy type, how could you not love that?
Salt and Stone Eucalyptus and Cedarwood Boxed Natural Deodorant, $25.95: Blending the freshness of eucalyptus with the sexiness of wood, this subtle deodorant gives off just the right amount of scent while keeping odour at bay.
Badger Balm Beard Oil, $29.95: Sure it’s marketed as a beard oil to keep wayward whiskers smooth and nourished, but with jojoba, sunflower and babassu oil, it would also make a great hair oil to tame the frizz and calm split ends too. Just saying.
Bloke Soaps Hands On Peppermint Body Wash, $29.50: This one will start your engines in the AM with a real zing thanks to the tingly-fresh vibes of peppermint. A shared-bathroom winner.
Ever Eco Konjac Facial Sponge, $9.95: For those who like the tactile feel of a granule exfoliation (so pretty much all men), except this natural sponge gets the job done while actually being gentle on the skin (read: doesn’t leave you red and raw).
Tokyo Milk Dark Novocaine EDP, $85: Seduction in a bottle: spicy and smoky with an unexpected sweetness thanks to vanilla, this unisex fragrance draws you into its world immediately.
Badger Balm Shampoo Bar, $29.95: No one loves a soap more than a dude, so this shampoo bar indulges the soap obsession while also being eco-friendly. Oh - and it works too (and yes it can be used on the body too).
Al.ive Body Australia Lemongrass and Eucalyptus Clay Body Scrub, $24: A body scrub with a mousse-like texture that softens rough skin, detoxifies with kaolin clay, and brings on some feel-good uplifting vibes with an essential oil blend of citrus and woods. There’s no way he’s keeping this one to himself.
The Perfume Oil Company Spritz Perfume Oil, $29.95: Fun fact: Acqua Di Gio (which this smells remarkably like) is the number one selling men's fragrance in the world. And since it’s mostly women buying the fragrances for men, it’s safe to say we are the ones with the good taste and you’ll probably love this one too.
Ingredients Face OIl Complex, $59: A truly unisex product that you can both share, this face oil nourishes the skin with its combination of five oils, plus balances and brightens. Plus, any excess can go through the ends of the hair or the cuticles so nothing goes to waste.
