Everyone has their favourite shaving product fragrances. Whether it's a lavender pre shave oil, an almond shaving cream, or a bay rum aftershave. There are definitely scents that are more traditional to find in a shaving product, while others are a little more off-kilter. If you've been thinking about switching up your fragrance, or aren't sure what unique scents are out there, have a peek at our list!






This is a very popular scent, and is most commonly found in shaving creams and pre-shave oil. It's a creamy, soothing fragrance that is never overpowering, which is perfect for calming your skin before and during your shave.


Much like almond, lavender is a very popular choice for pre-shave oils and balms, as well as shaving creams and soaps. It's a very light scent that won't contrast with any fragrances you may wear, such as colognes or post shave splashes.


This is a classic post-shave fragrance, and is probably the most traditional scent when it comes to shaving products. Most men have at least tried a bay rum after shave, since the cooling blast is extremely refreshing and soothing post shave.


Rich, woody fragrances are quite popular in pre-shave oils, post shave splashes and shaving creams/soaps. It's an extremely attractive, masculine scent, so many men gravitate towards products with sandalwood or cedar wood notes.


Similar to Bay Rum, lime is a cooling and refreshing fragrance that sits very well with shaving products. Citrus is a common choice for shaving creams, soaps and aftershaves, since it cools and refreshes your skin.
