Rather like us, Gruhme are fairly new to the industry that caters to the olfactory, offering creative and innovative alternatives to the larger brands we all know. Founded in 2013 by Rob Hallmark (and as the name implies), the brand originally specialised in male grooming products before fans begun asking for a dedicated fragrance.
Gruhme For Him is their first foray into fragrance and has proved incredibly popular. Introduced by top notes of juniper berries, black pepper, citrus fruits and lavender, it has the makings of a strong handshake. Earthy patchouli and cedar give way to the base of musk, spicy cumin and celery seeds for an long lasting sophisticated dry-down.
