So Sunday 19th June is Father’s Day and for the Dad who doesn’t require the latest football jersey or the new rugby jersey, here are my top fragrance picks for the Dads.
Paco Rabanne 1 Million – This spicy woody leather fragrance has proved it’s here to stay. Top notes include Blood Orange & Cinnamon, middle notes of Rose Absolute & Leather Accord and base notes include Peppermint & Amber Ketal. Cue music from the tv ad and clicking of fingers …..
L’Occitane L’Occitan Eau de Toilette – Celebrating classic Provence and its men, spicy and masculine. Top notes of classic Provence Lavender & Black Pepper, middle notes of Nutmeg & Cinnamon and base notes of Tonka Bean and Musk.
Boss Bottled – Like a classic Hugo Boss suit, elegant and stylish with top notes of Red Apple, middle notes of Geranium & Cinnamon and base notes with Amber Accord.
Dolce & Gabbana Intenso – This woody, aromatic fragrance contains top notes of Aquatic Notes, Basil, Marigold & Geranium, middle notes including Lavender and base notes of Labdanum, Sandalwood & Cypress. What makes this fragrance unique is the inclusion of the Mopel Accord also known as Milkwood which comes from a tree which grows in South Africa.
Bvlgari Man – Elegant, Sophisticated and Modern are the words used to describe this Woody Oriental fragrance. Top notes include Bergamot, Violet Leaves, Lotus Flower & White Pear. Middle notes of White Wood, Vegetal Amber, Sandalwood, Vetiver & Cypriol are followed by base notes of Benzoin, Tonka Bean, White Honey and Musk.
Armani Code Profumo – The newest release on this list is sleek, stylish and luxurious and that’s just the bottle. Profumo is the Italian for Perfume and the fragrance is an oriental and spicy scent. Top notes include Green Mandarin, Green Apple & Cardamon, middle notes of Orange Blossom, Lavender & Nutmeg and base notes of Tonka Bean, Amber, Leather and Styrax. Styrax is a small tree native to China and Japan and is also known as Japanese Snowbell.
My final recommendation for Father’s Day gift ideas of the fragrant variety is the Perfume Society’s The Scent of a Man Discovery Box, the 1st ever men’s edition. It features brands such as Prada, Paul Smith, Elemis, Penhaligons, Issey Miyake and much more. Please note if living in Ireland, the best way to secure delivery to Ireland is through Parcel Motel.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s especially my own Jim, who is the best a daughter could wish for and my brother-in-law Maurice, celebrating his first Father’s Day. xxx
