With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start scouting for something that’ll show your love and make his day. Here are our favourite men’s fragrances, styling tools and accessories that will suit all kinds of dads.
If he’s a cool dad, and not a regular dad
Following from the success of Calvin Klein’s Obsession - an absolute classic scent that hit shelves two decades ago - comes Calvin Klein Obsessed For Men EDT. It’s just like the warm and spicy scent you remember, but refreshed with Sichuan pepper and labdanum. We’re calling it now - it’s a classic in the making.
If he loves to relax with a vino
Instead of getting him a nice bottle of red this Father’s Day, try Hunter Lab Pinot Grape Skin Bath Soak instead. It’s a special blend of Epsom and rock salts, grape skins (that look like dehydrated grapes), seeds and cranberry extracts. Add a generous amount into a hot bath and voila - an instant muscle relaxant that’ll soothe his soul, too.
If he’s obsessed with looking after his beard
A moisturising product, like Kiehl’s Nourishing Beard Grooming Oil, is the secret to healthy-looking facial hair. In particular, the mix of sandalwood, eucalyptus and cedarwood essential oils in this formula helps to soften hair, while salicylic acid gently exfoliates without being too abrasive on skin.
If he loves classic fragrances
You can’t go past a fresh fragrance for Father’s Day. Giorgio Armani Code Colonia EDT is a new scent that covers off notes like citrus, sage and orange blossom, and is light and zingy without being too summery or subtle.
If he’s into bold scents
Boasting notes of Sichuan pepper, warm ginger, tuberose, cedarwood and patchouli, Tom Ford Noir Anthracite EDP is impressively bitey and sharp. We think this is perfect for those that are looking for something a little different this Father’s Day.
If he loves to workout
Keep Fitbit Alta HR top of mind if you’re looking for something that will help him achieve his fitness goals. Not only can it count steps and tell the time, but it can also track his activity and heart rate and even sends out reminders to get moving.
If he’s young at heart
Filled with fig leaf, black pepper, ambrox (a woody addition), patchouli and tonka bean, Versace Pour Homme Dylan Blue EDT smells energetic and bright, making it a top choice for those that enjoy running on adrenaline.
If he’s a hands-on kind of guy
Help dad clear his bathroom of clutter with an all-in-one tool like Remington Durablade Pro, which can trim, shave and style the hair on his head and face with ease. Besides the fact that it is waterproof, we’re also loving the grippy handle, cordless power and USB charging functionality.
If he likes variety
If your dad is someone that likes to mix it up on a daily basis, John Varvatos Miniature Gift Set would be perfect for him. Inside, there are four mini-sized scents (there’s the original John Varvatos EDT, Vintage EDT, Artisan EDT and Artisan Acqua EDT) that’ll guarantee he will never get sick of his scent wardrobe again.
If he’s an avid traveller
Dior Sauvage Very Cool Spray EDT brings together notes of citrusy bergamot and grounding ambroxan, and is housed in a metal can that is so travel-friendly he’ll want to take it everywhere.
If he likes to keep it casual
We’ve got something that’s fitting for dads who are laidback and like to keep it simple. With notes of bergamot, ginger, sage, balsam fir, cedarwood and incense, YSL Y EDT is simply divine and easy to wear both day and night.
