5 Giftable Fragrances For Dad on Father’s Day
Dad, Pops, Pa, Ayah – these are some of the names we have for them. Whether you have a dad who loves to throw in a couple of corny jokes or a strict yet tender father, they deserve to feel special, too. And with Father’s Day just around the corner, we know finding the perfect gift for Pops could be a daunting task. Sure, you can go for the typical mug and shirt, but why not spice it up a little?
As we celebrate dads, consider giving yours the gift of upgrading his scent game with a tasteful perfume that matches his personality. It’ll leave him feeling great, confident, and of course, smelling awesome. Good thing there’s a plethora of scents to choose from, so there won’t be any shortage of fragrances for all kinds of Ayahs.
1. THÉ NOIR 29 by Le Labo Fragrances
This woody perfume is great for warm, loving dads, or for those who are strong yet complete fuzz balls inside. With the freshness of fig and bay, as well as the sophisticated depth of cedarwood, vetiver, and musk going back and forth between softness and strength, this fragrance will become a staple in his arsenal.
2. Ilio by Diptyque
Maybe you have a dad who loves the sun; a man who chooses to look at the bright side of things and would rather enjoy a simple life. If your dad fits this profile, then this scent from Diptyque will fit him like a glove.
Summed up as the scent for sunny days, this lovely fragrance aims to transport wearers to the sun-kissed cliffs of the Mediterranean, where the sky meets the sea. The creators themselves describe the Mediterranean as the “landscape of the soul”, so it’s no surprise that this particular scent is filled with a freshness that leaves your soul invigorated.
It’s fruity and has the freshness of a prickly pear. Matched with bergamot giving it a lively note, jasmine which brings a nuanced character to it, and rounded by notes of iris, a whiff of Ilio leaves you with a velvety scent reflective of the sun.
3. Light Blue Italian Zest by Dolce & Gabbana
Got a dad who loves to sweat it out? Give him the gift of citrus-y scents this Father’s Day.
Citrus scents are deemed to be fresh, clean, lively, and energetic – a perfect match for active dads. With Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue Italian Zest, the hunt for “THE” citrus perfume is over. Its lively aroma has notes of fresh bergamot, grapefruit, and mandarin balanced with the ever-reliable rosemary and pepper – a formula sure to make even the most agile of dads smell and feel amazing.
4. CK EVERYONE Eau De Toilette by Calvin Klein
If your dad is a social butterfly or an overall friendly dude who relishes connecting with people, he probably knows that first impressions matter. And to make a good lasting impression, smelling good should be on his checklist.
The CK Everyone is a clean, refreshing scent which works for any occasion. Drawing from the famous CK One, this new fragrance from Calvin Klein embodies a new chapter in inclusivity and breaking down barriers of what a scent should be. With notes of zesty orange oil, a hearty blue tea accord, and a stable cedarwood note all bottled up in the brand’s iconic bottle, your dad is sure to leave people in awe.
And, just a tip, the bottle is recyclable.
5. Sauvage by Dior
Inspired by the open skies and rocky landscapes, the Dior Sauvage is the right fit for dads who love the outdoors. If we’re talking about a scent for a man, this is it.
This spicy, woody aromatic scent is a raw and noble fragrance that exudes mystery. With notes of Calabrian bergamot and ambroxan clashing with Papua New Guinean vanilla absolute, this makes for a masculine scent for the most important man in our lives.
Keepsakes for dads
Giving your unique Pops a perfume that he can hold on to is a thoughtful gesture. And at the end of it all, no matter which one you pick, he’ll surely love it. He’ll appreciate you making him feel loved and pampered, even just through scents. On that note, we wish all the dads out there a Happy Father’s Day!
If you’re having a hard time choosing a single scent for him (we love multifaceted dads!), give your Pops the chance to freely pick his fragrances instead! Purchase a monthly fragrance subscription plan at Scentses + Co for your Super Ayah today!
