Top 10 Best Next Fragrances For Men

The best men’s fragrances from Next men offer quality smelling masculine scents that compare well to many high-end brands. Here are 10 masculine Next fragrances that are well worth a closer look:

1. Next Aqua Eau De Toilette

Next Aqua Eau De Toilette

Review

Aqua Eau De Toilette is a modern aromatic fragrance for men with the same fresh vibe as many of the CK fragrances.

Opening with zesty citrus and crisp apple sprinkled with light herbs, Next Aqua Eau De Toilette is bright right from the start. The heart is peppery and nicely spiced for a confident, masculine feel. The base of warm amber and rich woody notes adds depth and a touch of richness.

As for performance, moderate sillage and projection combined with 3+ hours of longevity are pretty good for such a light/crisp scent. Lasts far longer when sprayed on clothing.

As for when to wear, Next Aqua is more of a spring/summer daytime scent when you want to smell clean and fresh. Perfect for casual days out, lunches, post-gym or even as an office scent.

Presented in an almost Chanel style clean-cut bottle in deep blue with a clear stopper. The outer packaging also looks classy.

Overall, Next Aqua Eau De Toilette smells far more expensive than it is. Perfect as an everyday casual scent when you want to feel clean and fresh yet possesses a classy, warm base.

2. Extreme Blue Eau De Toilette

Extreme Blue Eau De Toilette

Review

Extreme Blue Eau De Toilette is a fresh, yet spicy oriental masculine fragrance with leather and woody notes. This manly fragrance has a vibe of Guerlain L’Homme Idéal L’Intense and Davidoff Adventure to it.

This fragrance has a spicy/fresh opening of wild pimento peppers and citrus. A heart of smokey vetiver soon creeps in and mingles with the base of leather and woody notes. The overall effect once fully settled is an easy-going fresh, yet spicy/woody scent with touches of leather.

Extreme Blue Eau De Toilette is long-lasting at 4+ hours with good sillage and projection.

As for when to wear, Extreme Blue is a fresh yet warming autumn/winter fragrance that is perfect for casual-wear, either day or night.

Presented in a clear glass bottle with a bright blue plastic/rubber sleeve covering most of the bottle.

Overall, Next Extreme Blue is a casual, yet classy masculine fragrance that’s easy to wear.

3. Code Red Eau de Toilette

Code Red Eau de Toilette

Review

Code Red Eau de Toilette is an undeniably masculine scent that is bright and zesty with a spicy/woody side. Fans of this fragrance have commented that Code Red is a dupe of Invictus by Paco Rabanne, although with less staying power. At this low price, it’s well worth a look.

Opening with a blast of zesty grapefruit, a generous sprinkle of black pepper and cardamom soon follows to add some welcoming spice. After about 20 minutes, more in-depth woody notes rise from the base to add a layer of effortless sophistication.

Performance is moderate, with longevity at 3+ hours combined with decent sillage and projection. A cheeky spray of your clothing (watch for staining) will extend the life of this scent.

As for when to wear, Code Red is a bright spring/summer male fragrance that’s easy to wear and suitable for most occasions. More daywear than night would make a great office fragrance.

Presented in the same manner as Extreme Blue. A clear glass bottle with a bright red plastic/rubber sleeve covering most of the bottle gives a modern look.

Overall, Code Red Eau de Toilette is a bright and cheerful zesty/spicy men’s fragrance that’s easy to wear and puts a spring in your step.

4. Ice White Eau De Toilette

Ice White Eau De Toilette

Review

Refreshing, bright, and perfectly balanced, Next Ice White Eau De Toilette is a modern masculine fragrance that is sophisticated and effervescent.

The top layer is incredibly citrusy with notes of lemon and orange generously sprinkled with pepper and cardamom. Crisp green fruits and aquatic notes make up the heart of this fragrance. A warm yet discreet amber base adds a layer of depth. Overall a citrus/cardamom combo with a summer aquatic vibe.

As for when to wear, Ice White is an all-round warm-weather scent. Perfect for spring and summer day wear, and more casual than formal. Think casual lunch, office wear or post-gym workout.

You can expect 3+hours of wear from this scent, longer is you spray clothing. Sillage and projection are reasonable.

Presented in the same manner as Extreme Blue/Code Red. A clear glass bottle with a pure-white plastic/rubber sleeve covering most of the bottle gives a clean, modern look.

All in all, Next Ice White is an incredibly well-balanced and refreshing citrus/cardamom combo with sea notes.

5. L’Homme Eau De Toilette

L'Homme Eau De Toilette

Review

And now for a rather decadent oriental fragrance offering from Next, L’Homme Eau De Toilette is warming, spicy, woody that oozes masculine confidence.

The opening of Next L’Homme Eau De Toilette is exotic right from the start, with a wave of sultry oriental notes that smell luxurious and warming. The heart of mixed herbs and sensual musk is manly and well-balanced. A deep woody base is both alluring and classy. Smells incredibly expensive and well worth the low price-tag.

With beast-mode sillage and projection, this monster has incredible staying power at 8+ hours. You could go through your whole workday without needing to reapply, Grand Soir is indeed grand.

The warm and spicy notes make this a perfect cold-weather fragrance for winter and autumnal nights.

Like the scent, the look of this perfume is warm and golden; the amber-hued liquid matches the gold-toned topper perfectly.

Overall, Grand Soir is a warm, sexy and sophisticated scent that is addictive and intoxicating. Generates lots of compliments too!

6. Signature Eau De Toilette

Signature Eau De Toilette

Review

Next Signature Eau De Toilette is a classic style male fragrance that is luxurious, warming and sensual. One of my personal favourite Next fragrances that’s well worth adding to your collection.

Upon opening, you are greeted with the zing of crisp citrus, mainly lemon and bergamot. Black pepper and a variety of spices, including cardamom soon follow as this fragrance opens up to reveal its sophisticated masculine side. Upon dry-down, rich woody notes rise from the base complete the effect. This is crisp, slightly sweet, but also a spicy/woody fragrance that smells classy and expensive.

As for when to wear, Signature Eau De Toilette is exceptionally versatile and can be worn any time, day, night, season. An excellent choice for a date scent, office scent or your go-to signature scent (hence the name!).

Longevity is pretty good, lasting 4+ hours on the skin with decent sillage and projection.

Presented in a quality glass bottle that emits the deep amber hue of the fragrance resting inside. Completed with silver shoulders and leather-look cap.

Next Signature is a sexy and sophisticated male fragrance that receives lots of compliments. Incredible value and well worth checking out the Gift Set where you get the EDT, and the matching body wash for under £20. Bargain.

7. Signature Gold Eau De Toilette

Signature Gold Eau De Toilette

Review

Signature Gold Eau De Toilette is a provocativly rich an extravagant blend of spices, woods and amber with a touch of spiced-orange. Certainly gives Creed and Tom Ford a run for their money.

The opening is mildly spiced orange that gives a real winter-feel. A spicy heart demands attention and is incredibly masculine. The dry-down is where everything comes together as warming black amber and sensual golden woods, adding a richness that smells suave.

As for when to wear, Next Signature Gold is a warm and spicy autumn/winter fragrance that feels more eveningwear. Think classy nights out, late afternoon winter walks, and cosy nights in.

On me, the longevity was good at 4-5 hours combined with decent sillage/projection. I could still detect it on my skin/clothing the next morning.

Presented in a contemporary style glass bottle displaying the light gold colour of the fragrance inside. Completed with gold coloured shoulders and leather-look cap.

Next Signature Gold could easily be your default all-year-round fragrance. It’s masculine, rich, and attention-grabbing—sophistication in a bottle.

8. Signature Tonic Eau De Toilette

Signature Tonic Eau De Toilette

Review

Next Signature Tonic Eau De Toilette is a sophisticated modern fragrance that reminds me of a classic-style male scent such as Bleu De Chanel.

Grapefruit and lemon provide an opening sharpness with mandarin adding some balanced sweetness.

A light floral heart of lavender and geranium are met with spicy black pepper, pink pepper, and cumin seed. Cypress, cedar leaf and patchouli are also present.

The dry-down is mature and penetrating with amber and musk and a touch of moss.

The culmination of citrus, floral hints, and spicy/woody notes are masculine and confident. Just because Next is deemed, ‘high-street’ should not detract from considering purchasing this classy male fragrance.

As for when to wear, Next Signature Tonic is a great all-rounder. Can be worn any time, day, night, season. Excellent as a daytime out-and-about fragrance, or a Sunday brunch scent.

Performance is not incredible at 3-4 hours of longevity before becoming a skin scent, but the price/performance is excellent. Sillage/projection is respectable.

Signature Tonic is an alluring male fragrance that will get you noticed and smells far more expensive. Would make a great gift (or a gift to yourself!)

Grapefruit, Lemon, Mandarin, Cassis

9. Geometry Eau De Toilette

Geometry Eau De Toilette

Review

Next Geometry Eau De Toilette is a well-balanced scent that combines traditional masculine notes such as leather and amber with brighter notes of lavender and pineapple. Similar to Jimmy Choo Man Blue Eau de Toilette, although not as woody.

The opening is citrusy sweetened with juicy pineapple. A heart of bright and cheerful lavender is dusted with rosemary. A warm base of amber and rich leather appears after 30 minutes to add depth and soften the edges of the initial citrus hit.

As for when to wear, Next Geometry is exceptionally versatile. Perfect for autumn/winter/spring, slightly more casual daywear than being a full-on formal evening scent.

Performance is good, especially for the price. You can expect 3-4 hours of longevity with reasonable sillage/projection.

Next Geometry is presented in a clean-lined Art Deco style bottle with a black cap. The outer packaging is eye-catching and would make a great gift.

Overall, Next Geometry Eau De Toilette is a refreshing, aromatic and fresh fruity/leather masculine fragrance that’s great for autumn/winter/spring.

10. Edition Eau De Toilette

Edition Eau De Toilette

Review

Edition Eau De Toilette is a crowd-pleasing citrus/vanilla fragrance with a masculine musky base. Simple, yet effective, Edition

The opening of this fragrance is a lemon/bergamot citrus that is clean and crisp. A soothing and slightly warming heart soon reveals vanilla that takes the edge off the initial citrus. Upon dry-down, a base of musk is both pleasing and seductive.

As for when to wear, Edition Eau De Toilette is an all-round any-season fragrance that is more daywear. An excellent choice for brunch, lunchtime dates, chilling, or even post-workout.

The sillage and projection are soft yet present. Longevity is 3-4 hours of wear before a top-up is required.

Presentation is classy and looks expensive. The round glass bottle has the ‘edition’ lettering embossed all the way around. Completed with a black stopper with a discreet orange band. The outer packaging is also very nice looking. Well done Next.

Overall, Edition Eau De Toilette is an easy to wear citrus/vanilla fragrance with a musky base. Suitable for almost any occasion and any season.
