Top 10 Best Perfume Gift Sets for Him in the UK 2021

Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or a man in your life that you love, nothing makes a lasting impression like a sophisticated fragrance set. Perfume can help enhance the wearer's mood and boost their confidence, as well as making them more attractive - and that’s not us just saying it, ask science! 


However, finding a suitable set requires much consideration, particularly as one or more of the fragrances included could well become the recipient's trademark scent if you play it right! So, to help you separate the wheat from the chaff, we’ve put together a buying guide covering all the essential elements you should bear in mind when picking out a perfume set for him.

How To Choose a Perfume Gift Set for Him in the UK – Buying Guide

The world of scents and gift sets can be vast and confusing if you don't know what you're looking for. In this section, we'll make things easy with a concise and straightforward guide to the main factors you should consider when fragrance shopping. 

Make Sure You Hit All the Right Notes With a Sensational Scent

Make Sure You Hit All the Right Notes With a Sensational Scent

Before thinking about anything else, you’ll want to consider the type of scent(s) included in the set. No matter what kind of products come as part of the package, they'll all follow a similar fragrance theme. The smell of the perfume will change and develop over time, as it consists of a mixture of top notes, heart notes, and base notes. 


The top notes are what you can smell straight away after spritzing - think invigorating mint, zingy citrus, or that lovely clean aroma in the air when you're fresh out of the shower. These notes are quick to dissipate but they set the tone of the whole fragrance.

Make Sure You Hit All the Right Notes With a Sensational Scent

Heart notes provide the body of the perfume and work as a buffer between the fresh top notes and the deeper base notes. When it comes to heart notes, you can typically expect cool herbal elements like sage and basil or floral hits from ingredients such as lavender or rose.


Last, but certainly not least, are the base notes. These are big, bold fragrances that smell earthy and masculine. They're usually derived from spicy or musky ingredients like amber, sandalwood, and patchouli. These (and the heart notes, to some extent) are what tend to stick around the longest on the skin, so you’ll want to check which kind of aroma the recipient prefers before hitting that purchase button!

The Type of Perfume Will Affect Its Longevity

The Type of Perfume Will Affect Its Longevity

The fragrances in perfume are made by extracting scented oils from natural ingredients or, for scents that don’t occur in nature, are created using synthetic chemicals. These crafted scents are then held in solvents, the main one being alcohol. 


Not all perfumes contain the same amount of fragrance though - there are actually four categories when it comes to fragrance strength. In strength order, these are: body spray, eau de cologne (EDC), eau de toilette (EDT), and eau de parfum (EDP). 


Body spray usually contains around 1-3% perfume oil and will therefore produce a very subtle scent. EDC contains around 2-6% perfume oil, lasting up to 2 hours, while EDT can have anywhere from 5-15% which should linger for 4 hours. Finally, EDP contains approximately 10-20% perfume oil and has a lengthy lifespan of 5-6 hours - so you'll smell good all day long!

Consider What the Set Contains - Just Fragrance or Grooming Products Too?

Consider What the Set Contains - Just Fragrance or Grooming Products Too?

The last factor to consider is which items you get as part of the gift set. Sets for blokes don't usually have the same number of components as those designed for women, so don’t expect a package full of moisturisers, lotions, or hand creams!


Instead, alongside the perfume, there's often one or two grooming products like a luxurious shower gel or a handy deodorant. Smaller spray bottles with the same fragrance might also be included, which are perfect for travelling.


Of course, when you buy a gift set of miniature fragrances, you'll get just that - several bottles from the same brand with their most popular perfumes. This kind of set can be used to try out scents before you buy a full-size bottle, making it a great choice for keen fragrance enthusiasts who love experimenting!
