There is no greater guiding light in our lives than our dear old dads.
They always have a solution to everything; picking up the pieces of the drama in our lives, knowing handy hacks that could rival MacGyver and even lending us a shoulder to cry on in times of need.
So, what better gift to give the man who manages to add an air of ease to our life than an olfactory offering that brings him a similar sense of peace, aromatherapy-style?
Here are six seriously good fragrances that should help show some appreciation for the old boy.
Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Cologne
If your dad’s a classic kind of guy then this fresh-leaning scent is one to sniff. Notes of Cape Cod cranberry, Texas yellow rose and Vermont maplewood all mingle together in this energising, uplifting tonic.
$83 at Myer
Paco Rabanne Phantom EDT
Infused with enlivening fragrance extracts of lavender, lemon and vanilla, this is the scent for the kind of dad who’s into feel-good vibes and boasts a modern mindset.
$149 at Myer
Burberry Hero EDT
If the temptation of receiving a Burberry Hero Large Pouch as a gift with the purchase alongside this 100ml bottle of freshness isn’t enough to get you chomping at the bit, then how about the promise of a fragrance profile that includes notes of bergamot, juniper and black pepper? Divine.
$150 at Myer
Maison Crivelli Santal Volcanique EDP
Spice, lime, sandalwood and coffee; this scent is made for the dad who’s just a little bit cooler than your average. Think: A Lenny Kravitz meets Mick Jagger type of dad-swag that can only really be honoured with an equally impressive scent. This is that.
$299 at Adore Beauty
Deux is for the earthy dad who needs a fragrance that epitomises his love of the rugged terrain and the freedom of the great outdoors. The scent celebrates notes of cedar, pine and cut grass. How’s the serenity? So much serenity.
$299 at Adore Beauty
CLEAN Reserve Smoked Vetiver EDP
Leave dad to his manly duties in his gentleman’s den *cough* man cave *cough* (AKA lighting a cigar and cradling a tumbler glass of whiskey in a recliner), we just ask that you douse him in this woody blend of resins and aromatics for that finishing touch that perfectly toes the line between smoky and fresh.
