It won’t have escaped your radar that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and lucky for you I’ve discovered an absolute gem of a gift for the man in your life; let me introduce you to Gruhme, a quintessentially luxury British men’s aftershave.
Everything about Gruhme is meant to be distinctive. From the stand out simplistic packaging; each order arrives within a plain white box, simply emblazoned with the brand’s name in large black lettering, followed by its logo and website URL on the front, inspiring a sense of mystery to those unfamiliar with the brand.
The brand was the brainchild of CEO and Founder Rob Hallmark who grew up in the West Midlands. Having struggled to find a strong male brand that he really identified with he was inspired to make his own brand incorporating qualities he found mostly absent from the modern alternatives. Gruhme was officially launched on 18th December 2013.
The signature fragrance Gruhme No.14 blend has been created to be 4% stronger than the standard Gruhme aftershave and the moment you open the bottle your senses are treated to an absolute aroma delight.
Gruhme No.14 ‘s ingredients create a stand out blend; ‘aromatic wood accord with top notes of juniper berry, organic black peppercorn, bergamot, lemon, lavender, with a heart of patchoulian and cedar on a base of oakwood, amber and musks interlaced with traces of cumin, celery seed and petitgrain.’ Importantly, the products are not tested on animals and are free of all known allergens.
The first thing you notice is the flavours of bitter orange that are prominent in the fragrance’s opening aroma, striking a beautiful citric note. The aftershave’s description cites this as ‘believed by many to calm and soothe the mind.’ There’s a warmth to Gruhme No.14, and a faint underlayer of the black peppercorn (think Molton Brown) compliments the perfume’s zest rather tastefully.
The floral freshness from the bergamot within the fragrance, which blooms as the perfume settles on the skin makes this an evocative and powerful aftershave. You only need a small amount and it will easily last from day into evening and the longer it stays on the warmer and richer in depth it becomes.
Gruhme No.14 is a truly distinctive men’s aftershave and a gorgeous gift for Valentine’s Day as the brand has a strong heritage and in passion in creating luxury male grooming and fragrance whilst maintaining a mainstream appeal.
