Once you find a signature scent, it’s hard to imagine trying out a new fragrance. But, the summer season brings with it the perfect opportunity to change it up when it comes to your aftershave game. It’s time to step away from the dark, moody scents of autumn and winter and insert some citrus and spice into your scent.

Finding a new aftershave might seem daunting (where to start?!) so we’ve rounded up some of the best summer-appropriate scents for men on the market. All of these are designed specifically with warm, balmy days and nights in mind and will transport you to those salty days of summer where schedules don’t exist.

Le Labo Tonka 25, $440

The warm, musky notes of Tonka 25 by Le Labo is the perfect addition for balmy summer nights. Designed to smell of Tonka, musk, cedar, vanilla and orange blossom, this slightly sweet scent is the perfect balance between dark and spicy, which according to Le Labo, “evokes the smell of warm skin and resinous wood.” Shop in-store or online at MECCA.
