Fragrance is often the go-to gifting option for dads on Father’s Day—and for good reason. The perfect scent offers a splash of indulgence but with an affordable price tag, so it’s a perfect gift to show dad you care.
But with so many great fragrance options out there, how do you choose the right one?
A fragrance can say a great deal about a person. When shopping for the perfect scent for a loved one it’s important to think about their character and who they are as a person. What are their interests? Are they outgoing? Do they prefer the finer things or are they more at one with nature? A fragrance is designed to compliment and showcase the personality traits of the wearer, so think carefully about their preferred tastes.
To help you choose the perfect father’s day fragrance gift, we’ve put together a guide to some of our top selling men’s fragrances.
If your dad is one to play a round of golf on a Sunday morning or spend his summer evenings on the tennis courts, then he may perhaps prefer fresh, citrusy scents. These fragrances tend to be light on the skin and create a refreshingly crisp experience for the wearer. Try the fresh and energetic Burberry for Men, or the woody Cerruti 1881 Sport Pour Homme. Alternatively, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme is a citrus aromatic fragrance perfect for the contemporary man.
Trendy, cool, calm and collected. The city slicker dad has everything under control, is never late to his meetings, and can always get a table at the finest restaurants. If this is the perfect way to describe your dad then an oriental or aromatic scent could be just what he’s looking for. Try Brut After Shave Splash or Dolce & Gabbana The One Gentleman—a fresh spicy oriental fragrance for confident and sophisticated men.
For the foodie dad
For the dad’s that rustle up a fabulous feast or like to while away their time by experimenting in the kitchen, then aromatic fragrances with notes of spice may be a perfect match. Tom Ford for Men Eau de Toilette Spray has top notes of ginger, basil, and lemon leaf oil and is accompanied by base notes of black pepper and patchouli. Similarly, Giorgio Armani Eau Pour Homme is a luxurious, elegant fragrance with notes of tangerine, basil, cloves and sandalwood.
For the rustic gent
Is your dad green fingered? Perhaps he likes to ramble in the countryside or spend time filling up the bird feeders? Nature lovers often prefer a fragrance that reflects the elegant aromas of the great outdoors. Look for fresh and woody notes.
A delightfully cool fragrance inspired by the scent of deep water expeditions Davidoff Cool Water Ocean Extreme is perfect for dads who love spending time on the water. Alternatively, Calvin Klein Eternity for Men Collector’s Edition is a fresh fragrance for men with woody tones and top notes of green botanics.
