You can’t get more iconic than a fragrance for Father’s Day. So ditch the risky clothes choice and step away from the whisky shelves – a scent is what he really wants. We’ve picked our favourite classic fragrances (it was hard), which we know he’ll love, too…
Armani Acqua di Gio
Who needs chocolates when you can have a scent that lasts way longer? Go the extra mile with Armani Acqua di Gio, with its masculine notes of nutmeg, marine accord and amber to keep him smelling incred all day long.
This characteristic scent will take him back to his youth, with its strong notes of tarragon, Russian leather (yes, one of the wackiest scent notes out there) and cinnamon extract. Givenchy Gentlemen is all about elegance, so he’ll have you to thank for the compliments.
Yves Saint Laurent Kouros
If there’s one classic scent your hero needs, it’s Kouros, which will show him how much he really means to you. With its spicy combo of sage, cinnamon and coriander, along with a blend of bergamot and jasmine, you can’t go wrong. It’s a gift he’ll never forget…
Hugo Boss Boss Bottled
The Hugo Boss Boss Bottled dad is one of a kind, so he’ll feel touched you chose this for him. The first spritz produces apple and citrus fruits, but after a moment the spicy cloves and olivewood hit the high notes. He’ll always be centre stage in this scent. Nothing else could be more perfect, right?
Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male
If you know he loves fresh scents, grab Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male. It’s a dad fave – we promise! With its powerful notes of mint and cinnamon, and soft smells of vanilla and orange blossom, he’ll smell totally traditional. Now there’s a gift that will make him smile!
